One reviewer laments that this album is lacking in cohesiveness, and is just leftovers,escpecially deriding the track I know. Well, I and I know this is Selassie I music at It's I-ist level. I know's music might sound a litlle soft and discofied but marley alwyas wanted to try to get this message across to the masses. The singing and lyrics are profundly touching, even if obviously unpolished Songs like BlackMan Redemption,Rastaman Live up, have some of the riches, fullest bass lines and melodies in all reggae music. Give thanks and praise, chant down babylon, rastaman live up, all fully match the Biblical, spiritual, and revolutianty aspects of Bob's greatest. Mix up Mix requests original music not just version after version of unorginality, give musicains a chance to be creative it says. Trench Town also speaks directly to Jamaica biggin up that place. So don't be a stiff necked fool and please check this album again and again and then I an I will also know. Peace and love

To me it makes a lot of sense, that there is a good possibility, that the songs on this album or some of them, were intended for posthumous release, as George Harrison did the same thing. Bob passes on, but how surprising, the opening track tells us, "Come we go chant down Babylon one more time." "How do I know, that's how I know, Reggae Music, Chant down" seeing how the copywright dates for these songs are '81 and '83; certainly, one of the books out must address this.
Maybe this release was put together after Bob passed on; but I had it back then in album, I picked it over a CD of Survival (but might not Uprising): another grand 5 star effort: but, the songs on Confrontation can not be called leftovers; it does seem, in the final music Bob was writing, he is in that realm, where everything is perfect or near that like say some music by certain Rock artists at certain periods of their careers is very memorable (i.e. Dylan Bootleg, Rolling Stones Exile, Hendrix) ; and I definitely appreciate the progression of Marley's songwriting from say, the CD "Burning" to the last years; maybe not much better music or better but a more profound universal message in the last release of Robert Nestor Marley
Opening with "Chant down Babylon one more time": do the opening notes mirror "Pimpers Paradise" from the Uprising album? A good enough opening:
Then, the classic "Buffalo "Soldier", I was not previously aware of what a "Buffalo Soldier" was, then saw some pictures and understand what Marley means, "how the dreadlock Rasta was the Buffalo Soldier"; now I think, most know what a Buffalo Soldier is and I think, in part in regards to this song.

This is the album that was put togethers from leftovers after Marley's death, which means that it is lacking in musical and thematic unity. Still, that doesn't mean that it doesn't have some nice music on it. Buffalo Soldier is the best known track here, a song that has probably done more to promote awareness of Black History than a thousand Black History weeks.
Most of the other tracks are pleasant and upbeat with springy beats and singalong hooks. Nothing wrong with Chant Down Babylon, Jump Nyabinghi, and the calypsoish Mix Up, Mix Up, but then the inspiration gradually runs out until the barrel is truly being scraped. With track #9, I Know, we have the worst track ever released in Marley's name, probably even one of the worst tracks ever released on a major record label. If this was a joke, it was in poor taste, but I guess it was just a desperate attempt to get enough songs together to make up a set for an album.
Good background music for almost any activity you choose. The title, Confrontation sounds, well, confrontational, but the music here is not.
However, it should be said that this album should not be a top pick for new Marley fans. Even if you already have the huge-selling collection Legend and want more Marley, you really ought to look at Natty Dread, Exodus, Kaya, Survival, Uprising, and Babylon by Bus before you go for this one. Trust me.

I have to admit it, when I first picked up a Bob Marley album, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, given the baggage that surrounds Marley's name, his smoking habit and misunderstood religion. But if you listen to this man's music, it all becomes clear and the ambiguity and intimidation is erased, your soul will be satisfied and spirits lifted by Marley's positive pep talk. Maybe as a Christian, I like his message of love for God and for eachother. However, Bob's music will transcend all racial bounderies and religious beliefs. On Confrontation, Bob sings about "chanting down babylon" which symbolizes the destruction of a racist, oppresive society. He sings on the first track we can "chant down babylon with music". Buffalo Soldier is my favorite song on the album and Jump Nyabinghi! is a joyous song with the Marley message of peace and unity. It's a shame Bob had to die so young, now we can never see how Marley's music will evolve, but rest assure, even though reggae today has lost its power, Bob Marley and his music of peace and love will live on.
