Product Description

Product Description

Standard UK CD pressing of the 1977 album from the Reggae legend featuring two bonus tracks: 'Jamming' (Long Version) and 'Punky Reggae Party' (Long Version). Universal.

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

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.

A couple of things to note.

I rated LEGEND and THE HARDER THEY COME as the #1 and #2 greatest reggae albums of all time, largely but not entirely because of their historical precedence. Their creation led to other breakthroughs for other artists and the genre as a whole.

Any album in the Top 5 could easily have been voted as Best Reggae album of all time because of merit alone. And, it's not an exclusively Bob Marley domain. Before we reach album #20, we will have undoubtedly covered all of Bob's studio albums from the Island years, but also the first five albums from STEEL PULSE, and a couple from BURNING SPEAR.

But in truth, the way music critics have debated who is the Best Rock Group of all time, it's always narrowed down to THE BEATLES or THE ROLLING STONES. These lists are subjective, I know that but I submit my imperfect ranking to the same consideration.

Just as TIME MAGAZINE rated EXODUS as the "GREATEST ALBUM OF THE CENTURY," there seems no debate as another better. Maybe a few equal, but none better. I weighed what is my favorite and at times it is TRUE DEMOCRACY (by Steel Pulse) at other times, it's KAYA or UPRISING or any number of albums that I'll repeat-play just because it brings me to euphoria. What about albums that are no longer in print, but are very well known? I'm at a loss.

In addition to this Deluxe edition, I highly recommend the highest fidelity recording of Exodus (and Catch a Fire) by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab or "MoFi" for short. These pressings are the best that you'll hear.

"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.

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.

"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
