In the wake of reggae's breakthrough into rock awareness with the Robin Hood saga, The Harder They Come, the soundtrack that first rooted the music's sultry push beat and seductive patois in the underclass struggles of modern Jamaica erupted forcefully on this 1973 classic--The Wailers' second album targeting beyond their underground to fresh, impressionable rock fans. What was a revelation to rockers was really the work of a seasoned band captured on the eve of internal upheaval: Trenchtown stars since the late '60s, the band's most charismatic member, Bob Marley, loomed as its perceived frontman, a development which hastened the departures of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer and made Burnin' the final statement from that earlier configuration. The original version of "I Shot the Sheriff," which had spread reggae's outlaw ethos and staccato, propulsive sound on Eric Clapton's hit cover, is more than matched by the anthemic "Get Up, Stand Up," the call-to-arms of "Burnin' And Lootin'," the Rastafarian pride of "Rasta Man Chant," as well as strong remakes of "Small Axe" and "Duppy Conqueror." --Sam Sutherland

What an impact their music had on the world!
Morado
These are all albums I will always cherish, and they are all under Marley's Tuff Gong label which is best representative of the Wailers' music tradition.
Jonathan Musere
It serves as an excellent intorduction to the wailers, not just Bob Marley Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston but the entire wailers band.

If there was only one wailers album (no box sets or greatest hit compilations) that I could get this one would be it. It serves as an excellent intorduction to the wailers, not just Bob Marley Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston but the entire wailers band. Of course Bob is their natural leader. He is at his best on this Burnin. He shines bright as fire on I shot the sherrif, Burnin and lootin. Peter Tosh brings his usual natural charisma and power to the table on One foundation but especially on the co-lead vocal of get up stand up.
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

Already charged up with the creative success of 'Catch A Fire' the Wailers were set well before the end of the year to deliver their sophomore Island recording. On the world stage at this time reggae was beginning to make an impact. Especially in the UK. But for the time time their primary source of success was in their native Jamaica. And there was a lot to comment on in those terms too. Having gained it's independence,it had long ago been realized by people like Bob Marley that the music they'd make in the future really good deliver strong on social change. With their peace advocating Rastafarian sense of spirituality to guide them,and an already established and fresh musical genre to expand on,the Wailers had in their command the ability to effect that social change they sought.

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.

If you are a Bob Marley fan and are sick of the same songs regurgitated on the radio, check out this disk. It really has that Marley magic with his band before the commercial success and hence the tunes that are not worn out on the radio waves. Very cool.

Perhaps 'Burnin' is the Wailers' best kept secret of excellence. It majorly involves songs of revolution e.g., "Burnin' and Looting," and "Small Axe." Some of the tunes are simply soothing, and of note here is "Hallelujah Time" and "Pass it On" (in the sweet voice of Bunny Wailer (Neville Livingstone--which voice has been praised by countless others) and "Rasta Man Chant" which is a song-beat by the Wailers as a group. Given the excellence of this collection, including the music and the lyrics, and given that it was quite a united effort by a Beatles-status black African group that was later to break up or take on solo careers, this album takes the status of a collectible whose value will continue to grow with time. Two frequently mentioned titles on this album are "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Get Up, Stand Up." I have tended to compare the Burnin' album to the "Catch a Fire" album (another excellent effort by the original Wailers that included Neville "Bunny Wailer" Livingston and Peter Tosh who together with Bob became more famous than the others of the group) and the "Natty Dread" album. These are all albums I will always cherish, and they are all under Marley's Tuff Gong label which is best representative of the Wailers' music tradition.

Excellent title. Beyond that one of the best reggae albums ever. The gang was all here on this one: Bob, Peter, and Bunny, of course Bob being the nucleus of the whole irie vibe. What an impact their music had on the world! From the poverty ridden Trenchtown to the U.S. to the U.K. and beyond, they touched many lives and influenced several generations of musicians around the globe. Through all the hardship and all the oppression this group of individuals managed to surmount and shine like stars before tragedy in most cases. There is so much hope and positivity in all of Bob's wonderful life and music.
My favorites are: "Get Up, Stand Up"/"Hallelujah Time"/"I Shot the Sheriff"/"Burnin' and Lootin'"/"Duppy Conquerer".
Lite this baby up, and get cool. Let the vibes shape your spirit. One way>2BReggae< Songs of freedom...
