Chanting Dread was my first Big Youth album and is still my favorite. I can assure you that you've never heard anything like this before- Yout has the Best way of delivering a melody over the rhythms of the Arcangels Band.
What is important is that Yout will make you feel like dancing, but he'll also deliver the Prophecy that speaks to your soul. Listen to the Power in Yout's voice in 'Dread Inna Babylon'.
Easily alternating between playful laughing and chanting roots, Yout is imaginative and inspiring.
Expect this broaden your idea of what reggae music is, because it's coming from one of the Originals and it is by no means a Bob Marley album. (That's okay isn't it?)
Try 'Some Great Big youth' or 'dreadlocks dread' if you enjoy the style of this album, and the 'Live at Sunplash' if you prefer strict Prophecy. PEACE.

Big Youth is unique in the world of reggae. He is very spiritual and his vocals are as the title would suggest...chanting. Not in the sense that you'd expect to hear in Hindu or Gregorian chants, but in a spoken flow. Analogy time: If speed walking was(chanting)then walking would be(speaking) and running would be(singing). This is more like speed walking (chanting).
The music is pretty good and Big Youth has a positive way about passing his message along. I recommend him highly for a change of pace. Don't expect your usual Bob Marley style reggae here.
