This album along with Kaya is not often looked upon in the Bob Marley and the Wailers catalog, but it is very deserving. The title of this album basically says its purpose, which was Bob Confronting the good and evil within himself. the song you will probably recognize is Buffalo Soldier which appears on Legend. The first 4 tracks are very upbeat and very listenable to the casual fan. As you go past the first 4 tracks, they become less upbeat and stick more to the truth of Rastafarianism. To the casual listener these will not make sense, but to those of you who understand a little bit about Rastafari, these tracks will certainly make sense to you. What many people do not know is that this was released in 1983 and Bob Marley died in 1981. Bob was around to supervise the first single record release for the album, but had passed away before the entire album could be released. Aston Barrett the bass player supervised the releases of singles for this album. Aston barrett was Bob's right hand man, and Bob trusted him to mix and produce the album for release. This is actually Bob Marley singing on all the tracks even though it was released after his death. This cd was intended to be released before the brilliant Uprising album, but the material was shelved because Uprising had a more appealing sound to it. Confrontation is probably for collector's only, but if you want yet another unique side to this band Confrontation is probably for you. Even though this disc is not overly popular amoung Marley fans, it is still one of my favorites.

Before his untimely death from Cancer in 1981, Bob Marley & the Wailers had been working on their 11th album for Island Records, "Confrontation". Unfortunately, Marley could not oversee much of this album's progress and the album would not be released until 1983, nearly two yeears after Marley's death. It contains a slew of stellar unreleased material from 1978-1981 and was intended to be his last in a trilogy of specifically African-themed albums, having been preceeded by 1979's "Survival," and 1980's "Uprising".

Each song is a classic from the hopeful tunes like "Chant Down Babylon," my personal favorite, "Jump Niyabinghi," the joyous "Blackman Redemption," and the heart-warming and bold "Rastaman Live Up!," each carrying the message of the revival of Africa and the call for the righteous people of all cultures to keep their heads high. Equally spellbinding are the smooth, meditative tunes like the disco-impacted "I Know," "Give Thanks and Praises," "Mix Up, Mix Up," "Trench Town," and "Stiff-Necked Fools" (originally called "Wisdom," and made with the Lee Perry years with the original Wailers, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh). Each song, with these ones in particular, show Marley in a calm, happy state, almost ready to depart the world as if his work has been completed. It's as if he tells his fans and those who so adore him not to worry in each song. The album, while perhaps not the most chart-topping, is the group's most utterly spiritual and in many ways, their most profound.

The album's track which stands above all the others, however, is the amazing, danceable, yet profound and protestful "Buffalo Soldier," a true story about the mistreatment of Blacks by the Western World and their being forced to join the Union Army for the purpose of killing Native Americans.

To me it makes a lot of sense, that there is a good possibility, that the songs on this album or some of them, were intended for posthumous release, as George Harrison did the same thing. Bob passes on, but how surprising, the opening track tells us, "Come we go chant down Babylon one more time." "How do I know, that's how I know, Reggae Music, Chant down" seeing how the copywright dates for these songs are '81 and '83; certainly, one of the books out must address this.
Maybe this release was put together after Bob passed on; but I had it back then in album, I picked it over a CD of Survival (but might not Uprising): another grand 5 star effort: but, the songs on Confrontation can not be called leftovers; it does seem, in the final music Bob was writing, he is in that realm, where everything is perfect or near that like say some music by certain Rock artists at certain periods of their careers is very memorable (i.e. Dylan Bootleg, Rolling Stones Exile, Hendrix) ; and I definitely appreciate the progression of Marley's songwriting from say, the CD "Burning" to the last years; maybe not much better music or better but a more profound universal message in the last release of Robert Nestor Marley
Opening with "Chant down Babylon one more time": do the opening notes mirror "Pimpers Paradise" from the Uprising album? A good enough opening:
Then, the classic "Buffalo "Soldier", I was not previously aware of what a "Buffalo Soldier" was, then saw some pictures and understand what Marley means, "how the dreadlock Rasta was the Buffalo Soldier"; now I think, most know what a Buffalo Soldier is and I think, in part in regards to this song.
