Editorial Reviews

Rebelution first united in Santa Barbara, California, built from a wide array of musical backgrounds. With Reggae as the focus, the group set out to create a fresh and vibrant sound which they dub California Reggae. The band released their highly anticipated full-length album in June of 2007 and just weeks after its release, "Courage to Grow" became one of the most downloaded Reggae albums on iTunes. By the end of the year, it had been awarded the iTunes Editors Choice: Best Reggae Album 2007. "Apparently, California Reggae is hot. Stemming from a foundation of local support, Rebelution soared into iTunes Reggae Top 10 (album downloads), amongst some lofty company. Lofty like Bob, Stephen, and Damian Marley." -- Santa Barbara News-Press

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Good! April 14, 2009
By T. Leaf
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always been a fan of Reggae sounds and bands like Sublime and Pepper that add rock influence as well. I have used the Amazon sample system to find new bands and Rebelution was at the top of my list of findings! Great, clean, feel good sound and best of all this is one of those classic CD's that you can play all the way through without skipping any tracks. I have a feeling this will be my "go to album" for this next summer. Sample this, i'm sure you will love it too.

Awesome stuff - this has not been marketed properly. These guys are relatively unknown and they are absolutely tremendous musicians. If you like great grooves and a high recording quality then get this. No need to be a reggae fan to enjoy this, One of the rare albums where EVERY track is just great. I am so happy to find an album where every track is so good. I like good drumming - big band, funk, jazz, rock and some pop - you will enjoy this guarenteed. This is refreshing stuff - think Santana, Red Hot Chilli Peppers in reggae mode....

I discovered this band recently and this album blew me away. Every single song is good, solid reggae with a great feel and some fusion influences. The more I listen to it, the more I like it! HIghly recommended.

Rebelution is one of those bands that just hits you. They have a ton of great songs. They write great music. Positive lyrics that can help you get through tough times. These guys are great. I bought all of their albums. I will be listening to them for a long time. If any of the band members read this, thank you for writing such great music and please keep it up! Also, please come to the New England area soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid! August 25, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Nice blend of Reggae and Rock. Very modern and hip sound with a Cali vibe.I like that these guys are from Isla Vista in SB. They do a great job with the lyrics, sound and message and the vocals are pretty close to how they sound in concert. Great sounds for just chillin'!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING <3 <3 <3 August 13, 2013
By Angie
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Every song on this CD is fantastic! I'm all about the good vibes that Rebelution brings to its music as well as its live performance. These guys completely exceeded my expectations, both live and recorded, and redeemed the Matisyahu/Rebelution Good Vibes show at the OC Fair, following Matisyahu's lackluster performance.
