An upful collection of conscious singles from one of the greatest Reggae stars ever. Bunny demonstrates all his abilities on this one: wordplay/humor (Baldheaded Woman), melodic sense (Innocent Blood), outspoken love for his people and intolerance of a hypocritical political system and tremendous production all the way around. One of the most beautifully expressive voices ever -- regardless of musical style. Bunny really shines as his own star on this one, backed up, as usual, by an all-star cast of top Jamaican musicians (including Sly & Robbie.) This CD definitely stands on its own.

Usually someone is introduced to reggae thru the works of Bob Marley and then graduates later on to other reggae artists as time goes by. I feel this is an excellent transition piece into the true heart and spirit of reggae. Bunny Wailer has a way of creating roots music in its purest sense/form. Enough of my blabbering though...check this CD out for yourself. I can listen to the whole thing without skipping a single track. Crucial!

Bunny Wailer is as much a legend as either of his original Wailer's bandmates. Bunny often choose not to tour or get out of Jamaica as much as Marley or Tosh, but this doesn't make him any less a legend. This album along with any other can stand on its own with any Bob or Peter released. They were great together, and they were great own their own. Thank the Lord for all 3 of them. Bunny, may you live long and keep the spirit of your fallen brethren alive for years to come. Jah Bless, One Love

I had this album on cassette that I bought yeaars ago. Could not believe it was on cd after all these years. The melodic soongs and thoughtfulness that is in each song make me play it over and over again. This cd is a must-get for those of you that like to escape on a cloud of reggae majic. Every time i listen to it, i am transported back to Jamaica!

This album is just as the title states: Crucial. While its not as classic as Bunny's "Blackheart Man," it is still a gem. It's got a brighter mood than "Blackheart Man." I think its also better than most of Peter Tosh's work. There are a couple of songs I skip from time to time ("Baldheaded Woman" and "Old Dragon" come to mind) but the good songs more than make up for them. The best songs are "Boderation," "Power Strugglers," "Bright Soul," and "Here in Jamaica." If you like reggae and already have "Blackheart Man," get this because you won't be disappointed.
