5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album July 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has got to be the best one. Every song is just jammin' and can be played at any point in time. You know how some albums just rock from beginning to end... this is one of those. No skippped over songs or "I wish this song was on it instead of that one" (that what other albums are for).
You feel down? Put in Kaya. You feel happy? Put in Kaya. It can solve all of your problems and answer all your questions.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Food for the soul! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars "Excuse me while I light my spliff" April 18 2003
By Plump1
Format:Audio CD
I've pulled out the original 1978 Tuff Gong release on vinyl, blew the dust off of it, and gave it a spin after 20 years. I've listened to the CD and I can honestly say that this remastered version is fairly comparable to the original.
This is a truely beautiful album.
... It is in fact a political statement - listen to the album again in it's entirety - it is one big political statement not love songs (chuckle). Yes Bob is in love with KAYA that "lil brown gal". p.s. KAYA=Ganja=woman.
The album is not as blatently political as the previous albums. You have to remember this album was written after Marley was shot and his political statements are more translucent.
This album is best if listened to from beginning to end the way it was written and meant to be heard. KAYA was made in the era when conceptual albums were "in", unlike the 1 hit wonder albums of today that has one popular song and 9 other disjointed nonrelavent songs. Thank your monoplolized big name record industry for that and for dictating our airwaves with songs of plastic love and false hope.
...
This album is timeless and I'm sure my children will listen to and appreciate this album when their time comes.
Warning: if you have conservative ideologies - you will not understand this album and think the devil himself wrote this album. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Sun Is Shining." March 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
I rarely get albums for just one song, but the track "Sun is Shining" was reason enough for me to pick up Bob Marley's wondrous "Kaya." In my opinion, it stands as one of his best and most memorable tracks, even if it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Fortunately, the fun on "Kaya" doesn't end there. Marley's most popular and memorable love song, "Is This Love" also surfaces, and it burns with as much urgency and feeling as it did back in the day. It's certainly one of his trademark songs. Other noteworthy cuts include "Satisfy My Soul" and the heartfelt breakup jam "She's Gone." And I'd be a fool not to acknowledge the excellent "Misty Morning" which still holds up amazingly well. This is well-grounded music affectionately crafted with love and attention to detail, and it's just one of many albums that cements Marley as among the most vital and influential musicians. If Marley's hits collection "Legend" is all you own, then you owe it to yourself to pick up "Kaya." It's a true classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Marley cd's Jan. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
Is this a damn fine cd or what? The beautifully perfect Easy Skanking starts the cd off with just the right tone and moves into MY personal favorite KAYA! It is just a fun song with a nice pace and heavy slick riddims. Is This Love is a nice recognizable song for most people I would assume. Sun is Shining is wicked man. I love this one. Great sound. Satisfy My Soul is slow and nice. She's Gone is a nice selection. Misty Morning is a cool mellow tune with some cool horns. Crisis is ok, but not my favorite. I love Running Away (not in the Monty Python Holy Grail sense, but the song on this cd) and I like the voice Bob opts for in this one.
Ahhhh Time Will Tell...what a beautiful song. Guitars are just perfect with the mellow rasta drums. You just can't help but relax when you hear this. Smile Jamaica is ok. I don't particularly like the song, but the dub treatment here is really nice.
Bottom Line: I recommend you pick this up. Just sounds too good to pass up.
OneLove

5.0 out of 5 stars Remaster of Kaya well worth a new listen Oct. 19 2001
Format:Audio CD
Bob Marley's 1978 release "Kaya" has benefited from a new remastering that is as exquisite as the sweet songs that make up this collection.
Listening to the keyboards reverb between left and right channel on such timeless songs as "Is This Love" or "Sun is Shining" while a chorus of percussion softly pulsates back and forth makes this one of the very finest collections from Bob Marley and the Wailers. Junior Murvin's subtle guitar licks highlight turnarounds in each song. The vocal mixes are among the best ever from Bob abd the I Threes.
The remaster of this CD is exactly what one would expect with the instruments clearer, the bass more powerful, the mix given a lively feel that brings you closer to the source than ever before. An already great collection that has been given a lift, it's worth noting these mellow riffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Marley Album Ever! July 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
now that does sounds like a pretty risky statement, but in my opinion this is the best album. i have all of bob's cd's, but i have to say that no matter what i always come back to this one. With tracks like "is this love", "satisfy my soul" and the spectacular "Misty Morning" you just cant go wrong. but dont by any means think those are the only good songs on this album, because everyone is just perfect. this is an album where there is no skipping tracks needed. the whole cd plays like one giant beautiful opus. if you are just getting into marley i would reccomend "Legend" first, but this would suck you into his beautiful little world also. for those of you with just Legend and you want to expand more into the Rasta mans' music, this would be a perfect selection.
what are you waiting for??? go out and by this NOW!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu ray audio is awsome
This is a great album, but the new format is outstanding. This has a nice warm sound that alot of older music transfered to cds is sorely lacking.

If you are reading this then I am telling you, GET THIS!! Kaya is a laid back album consisting of love, sunshine and of course, marijuana. This is one of the best of Bob's cd's. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best
This is one of Bob's greatest works. Although it is different than other works such as Burnin, Catch a Fire, and Rastaman Vibration, it is still great. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, but not Marley's best
I have to say I don't really love this album. It's good, but surely not as good as others. All of the songs are love songs, so that in the long run the words sound a bit boring to... Read more
