5.0 out of 5 stars Marley's Best Studio Album August 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Exodus" is Bob Marley's best studio album, period. Tight and focused (10 tracks, 37 min.), Marley brings forth the best reggae you will find anywhere. (The 2001 remaster adds 2 "long versions" of "Jamming" and "Punky Reggae Party", the latter not even being on the original album).
Opener "Natural Mystic" sets the tone: easy-flowing reggae sounds, with Bob's never-absent comments on the way things are, or should be. The album's title track is, at 7+ min, the "monster" track on the album, and one of Bob's best ever. The album also contains the well-known (and hits in the US) "Jamming", "Waiting in Vain", and "One Love".
One can argue that Marley was never as good in the studio as he was live (check out the live album "Babylon by Bus"), but as far as his studio output is concerned, it never got any better than this. Essential for any Marley fan.
Fun fact: Marley was always bigger in Europe than he was in the US. Of the original 10 tracks, 7 were issued as a single in the UK, a feat not repeated until Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album, just to give you a sense of "Exodus" impact in 1977.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Marley's Greatest Album in Incredible Package October 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When all of Bob Marley and the Wailers island albums were rereleased except Exodus I knew there was a reason. It's all quite simple now since the Deluxe edition hss been released. For starters on the first disc you get the 10 songs from the original album which are great, and have been reviewed tima and time again. Time acutally called it the album of the Century. But then you get the bonus tracks. "Roots" is a really good song, the alternate version of "Waiting in Vain" is better than the original in my opinion, and as far as the other versions of "Jamming" any true reggae fan loves a good dub so that's killer, as is the dub of "Exodus"
Then we get to the live section which i think has better versions of songs than "Babylon By Bus", which has always been my personal favorite album. "War/No More Trouble", "Jamming", and "Exodus" are just simply phenominal.
Next is the "Punky Reggae Party" with the dub version, finally a way to get the original studio version of this song, which until now was very hard to do. Also there's the "Keep On Moving" which has always been a great song.
I consider this to be the best reissue of all the BMW material thus far this year, though "Burnin'" and "Catch a Fire (2CD) were also really good. I just wish now all the original Jamacian versions of BMW Island albums would be released. It's just amazing how many of these albums are sold, despite the fact that Bob Marley passed away nearly 20 years ago.
Buy this double disc set and be happy!!!! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars one of his better efforts September 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Exodus" is one of those albums that is difficult to be impartial, no less critical, towards due to the intense feelings towards it. Most Marley fans will argue that this is the ONE album of his to get. I would have to disagree and do so at my job in a music store all the time...
I fully agree that this is one of Bob's crowning achievements-"Natural Mystic," "Jamming" and "One Love/People Get Ready" are among the strongest songs in Marley's canon, but the lp is not the end all be all of Marley's works, no less reggae itself.
For my money, if I HAD to choose one Marley lp, it would be "Catch a Fire" with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, a truly monumental lp from start to finish..If I HAD to choose 2, I would include Bob's "Natty Dread" with "Catch a Fire." I would then choose "Burnin'" and then probably "Exodus."
The beauty is that we don't have to choose any one Marley lp to be the ONE. They are ALL part of the Great ONE. I love "Exodus"- always have- but people who pigeonhole it as the ONE are missing the beauty of all the others.
Choose all, or choose none..either way,, enjoy all of the albums, including "Exodus," one of Marley's crowning acheievements.

This package, the 'deluxe' edition of the masterful 'Exodus' album by Marley and the Wailers, finally includes the complete nine minute and eighteen second, original version of the Lee Perry/Bob Marley collaboration 'Punky Reggae Party', recorded over two months in July/August 1977. (The single disc edition of 'Exodus' which includes 'Punky Reggae Party' says 'long version ' but it is not, lasting only six minutes before it is edited to a close, before Marley's chilling jazz scatting is complete). For this gem of collaborative brilliance alone this 'deluxe' package is worth the high price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iconic! Simply unmissable! June 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I watched a TV documentary the other night about the making of this album and it was a spellbinding hour and a half. Apparently, Bob had to flee Jamaica for the UK after an assassination attempt and ended up living in London for a year. It was during this year that this phenomenal album was recorded. I've owned it for over 20 years now - first on cassette, then on vinyl and finally on CD - and I had no clue that this was so.

The album was released in 1977. It was the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee but Britain was in a very bad place, the seeds of Thatcherism and the heartless 80s had already been sown and Punk ruled the airwaves. I lived a very sheltered life as a teenager and so it wasn't until 1979 when I went away to boarding school, that I finally get to hear the album in its entirety. It was a true revelation. I heard it on (what was then) a new invention my peers and I called a "hi-fi system" owned by an older student and I remember hearing the percussion on "Jamming" and being transfixed. No exaggeration; I was literally hypnotised.

The album is faultless with pristine production by Bob and The Wailers. From the minute the first strains of "Natural Mystic" fade in, through the accusatory "Guiltiness", on to the revolutionary title track, the slow jams "Waiting In Vain" & "Turn Your Lights Down Low", on to the optimitic "Three Little Birds" and right to the end of "One Love/People Get Ready", there is not a single note out of place. Each song, a potential hit single, (7 of the 10 songs on the original album were actually hits here in the UK) has a vibrant, totally relevant message - especially for a black teenager living in 70s UK, and Bob's primary ethos of peace & love have stayed with me ever since.
