Product Description

Amazon.ca

In 1999 Exodus was rightfully voted by Time Magazine the most important album of the 20th century. This is the visionary Bob Marley's masterpiece, a concept album that distils the myriad experiences of both our daily lives and collective unconsciousness into 46 minutes of aural perfection. Exodus has been flawlessly remastered from the original recordings and showcases what is probably the Wailers' tightest recorded performance. The initial notes of the album's opening track, "Natural Mystic", fade up from a deep silence, giving the listener the impression that the music generates from within a continuum of the past, present, and future. The first half of Exodus bears witness to Marley's shift in focus away from the mundane problems of Babylon existence and toward a greater understanding of vital universal truths. The second half features songs like "Jamming" and "Waiting in Vain", which take a gently wistful look at the more interpersonal aspects of human relations. --Rebecca Levine

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Consistent May 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many pleasing tunes abound on Bob Marley's Exodus CD. Three Little Birds and One Love/People Get Ready truly grab me with such pleasing tones and captivating melodies. However some of the less familiar tunes like Turn Your Lights Down Low and Natural Mystic stand fairly tall as well.
The style does not vary too much and a few songs are a little long. Nonetheless, like Catch A Fire or the Legend compilation you cannot deny the soothing effects of Mr. Marley. Put it on and don't worry because the music is just allright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marley's Best Studio Album Aug. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Exodus" is Bob Marley's best studio album, period. Tight and focused (10 tracks, 37 min.), Marley brings forth the best reggae you will find anywhere. (The 2001 remaster adds 2 "long versions" of "Jamming" and "Punky Reggae Party", the latter not even being on the original album).
Opener "Natural Mystic" sets the tone: easy-flowing reggae sounds, with Bob's never-absent comments on the way things are, or should be. The album's title track is, at 7+ min, the "monster" track on the album, and one of Bob's best ever. The album also contains the well-known (and hits in the US) "Jamming", "Waiting in Vain", and "One Love".
One can argue that Marley was never as good in the studio as he was live (check out the live album "Babylon by Bus"), but as far as his studio output is concerned, it never got any better than this. Essential for any Marley fan.
Fun fact: Marley was always bigger in Europe than he was in the US. Of the original 10 tracks, 7 were issued as a single in the UK, a feat not repeated until Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album, just to give you a sense of "Exodus" impact in 1977.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Marley. April 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many reviewers (myself included) use the word "classic" probably more often than they should when examining great albums, but Bob Marley's thunderous "Exodus" rightfully earns the title. Its influence is incomparable, and its brilliance makes it second to none. You wanna talk about a record that has the word "genius" written all over it? This is it. And even after all these years since I first listened to it as a child, it has lost none of its urgency. Marley croons with pain and longing in the popular "Waiting in Vain;" delivers a strong message of empowerment in the title song, and another favorite of mine is the suave "Jamming." And while Lauryn Hill's version of "Turn Your Lights Down Low" is fine, it can't measure up to the smokin' original that appears here. The remastering on "Exodus" is superb, making the recording even more crisp and tight than what we've heard on previous editions. In a way, "Exodus" is to Marley what "Kind of Blue" is to Miles Davis: a great beginner's album. If you own none of his stuff, this is a pretty good place to start, as it contains many of his more popular songs. And even those who are already familiar with this album should get this reissue for the remastering. Across the board, "Exodus" is indispensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars we jammin! i wanna jam with u! Jan. 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Singin sweet songs, melody's pure & true..." (three little birds) i think this album has the sweetest song & the purest & truest melodies of pretty much any roots reggae album ever. Exodus is well deserving of Time Magazine's "Album of the Century" award. every song is amazing (like all wailers songs are). this is what i think of the songs:
1. natural mystic - 5/5 great song with great lyrics
2. so much things to say - 5/5 a very underrated song. its soooooooooo much better than what most people think. the i-threes (the wailers back-up singers) are really good
3. guiltiness - 5/5 amazing
4. the heathen - 5/5 great song. i like the electric guitar in the background
5. exodus - 5/5 the albums theme song. great riddim. a bit too long
6. jamming - 5/5 probably the most well know and popular reggae song EVER! an instant classic
7. waiting in vain - 4/5 pretty good
8. turn your lights down low - 4.5/5 very good song. a bit too slow. check out the remix with lauryn hill (chant down babylon)
9. three little birds - 5/5 great song with a good riddim, backing vocals, and lyrics
10. one love - 5/5 chosen as the anthem off the millenium by some magasine. great song
11. punky reggae party (bonus track) - 5/5 really good song made either for "smile jamaica" or "one love peace concert", im not sure which one. very catchy

5.0 out of 5 stars Jammin' . Dec 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
With Time magazine having awarded this album the distinction of Album of the (last) Century, it would be a bit contrarian to give it less than 5 stars, even though it is not my favorite Marley album--Kaya is.
What is it that made this skinny, half white, soccer and ganja loving Jamaican such a beloved figure? Well, of course dying young always helps, and like his near contemporary John Lennon, Marley didn't make it into middle age. But Marley was truly one of a kind. His voice is not the kind of voice that you say is a good voice or a bad voice. Like Dylan's it is instantly recognizable as his voice and that is all that counts. The songs are brilliant, all self penned, and rarely covered by other artists. Marley, as far as I know, never performs cover versions of songs by other composers.
Marley is seen by many as a quasi religious figure, and I have to confess that though I am no Rastafarian (though I have smoked ganja) nor Christian (though I have taken communion), I find this album spiritually uplifting in a way that I do not find, say, contemporary Christian music uplifting. Marley's songs are replete with Biblical references and echoes, but to compare someone like Amy Grant with Marley would be absurd. However the fact that it IS so absurd is a measure of his status, which is head and shoulders above all but the very greatest artists. You have to put him up there in the pantheon of greats along with the Beatles, Stones, Miles Davis, Hendrix etc.
So like all of Marley's recordings, you cannot measure it simply in musical terms, because it is more than just music, it is inspiration too.
This album goes from strength to strength. Many albums start with the best track and then go downhill, but this one saves the best for later.
