1979 album from the Reggae legend. Survival is an album with an outwardly militant theme. Some speculate that this was due in part to criticism Marley received for the laid-back, ganja-soaked atmosphere of his previous release, Kaya, which seemed to sidetrack the urgency of his message.
The first of an extraordinary musical trilogy that includes Uprising and Confrontation, upon Survival's 1979 release, Bob Marley's ghetto supporters read titles like "Ambush in the Night", referring to the late 76 attempt on his life, and "Zimbabwe", celebrating that African state's liberation from colonial rule, as fiery political declarations. Whether singing songs of love, rebellion, reality or spirituality, Marley vibrated with uncontainable intelligence that did great things for any listener. While it's impossible to single out any release in the reggae prophet's canon as "the best", his greatest impact came from a rare ability to articulate rebel rage while holding on to the vision of a more noble human reality. Survival's 10 straight-up social-political declarations were Marley's boldest to date, and their muscular messages endure today as reggae's most luminous "sufferas" anthems. --Elena Oumano --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
