But what makes this wailers disk so essential is the groupo effort on it. My favorite song on this Cd is the Halleluja time, I wish I knew who sang lead it simply is a beatiful song. Maybe bunny? Pass it on is another strong song about brotherhood that features neither marley or tosh on lead. Listen to the background vocals on the remake of small axe. (my favorite version) Duppy conquerer another remake and another strong song. The album ends with the spiritual Rasta Man Chant, listen to the congos' and the synthesiser, a wonderful refreshing mixture of the tribal and the electronic. Absolutey the best wailers album (compilations and box sets withstanding) and an essential reggea album
As with the previous album this is very much an album of reggae standards. Though the difference between the two is similar to that of Bob Dylan's The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan and the second The Times They Are a-Changin':one blends social comment with romance,the other is almost pure social comment. The first four songs alone "Get Up,Stand Up",the gospel soul/funk inflected "Hallelujah Time","I Shot The Sheriff" and "Burnin' And Lootin" all makes the bands firy social convictions clear as a bell,calling out to act on one's thoughts even if meant confrontations with authority. The heavy melodicism of "Put It On","Small Axe",with it's clever spiritual metaphors as well as "Duppy Conqueror","One Foundation" and "Rastaman Chant" bring it home with heavier pop melodicism.Read more ›
My favorites are: "Get Up, Stand Up"/"Hallelujah Time"/"I Shot the Sheriff"/"Burnin' and Lootin'"/"Duppy Conquerer".

Perfect. Just as promised.
I love strawberry jam. I wish I had more strawberry jam. I would bathe in it.
I've always been a fan of great music but I'm 30 and somehow always passed by Marley's music. Last week I had 10 dollars to blow and was tired of almost all the music in my... Read morePublished on August 5, 2004 by spoticus

Picking up where 'Catch a Fire' left off, 'Burnin' stokes the flames. There is no mistaking what this album was - a return to the Wailers original rebel or 'rude boy' roots. Read morePublished on January 21, 2001 by Amazon Customer
