5 Stars is not enough for this one. 4 live tracks and 34 incredible tracks for the price of a regular CD. What's not to like? Digitally remastered in its full glory, Gold is...well..pretty much all of the revered hits(e.g. No Woman No Cry) as well as some lesser known, yet just as archetypal efforts such as Crazy Baldhead. The more intense Marley fans might scoff at this 2 CD set as too commercially appealing.
I, on the other hand, think this is perfect for any Marley enthusiast who doesn't feel like buying 20 separate CD's but wants to experience Marley from his austere beginning to his untimely death. The ingenious layout of Gold delineates its tracks like Stir It Up from his first independent album all the way to Buffalo Soldier and Iron Lion Zion that were, of course, released posthumously. Solid.
