The lyrics are well thought and sincere, the beats are catchy.

I hope that K-OS gets all the respect he deserves as a talented artist because that's what he is; a true artist.

He is without a doubt one of the best Canadian emcees, and one of the best artists overall.

Having previously heard only a few of his songs I didnt expect very much but I decided to buy it in order to suport an artist that would truly deserve it. I was - and still am- very impressed by this album. The production is amazing and K-OS's talent is undeniable; he's not only a rapper,his singing voice is reminiscent of Bob Marley's. This is one of those albums you want to have for life, it's a classic with the kind of tracks (Love Song, Crucial, Man I Used To Be, B-boy Stance...oh what the hell, all of them) that will never grow old. I hope that K-OS gets all the respect he deserves as a talented artist because that's what he is; a true artist.

He tells you what he thinks, and what is damn true right off the bat. Hip-hop is dying, and its being killed by money, cheddah, the bling bling, all that crap. Stop it, you damn sellouts. This is such a good CD. Amazing lyrics, amazing production. This is a message that needs to reach all music listeners. This is real hip-hop. If you don't pick this up, you don't know hip-hop. Straight up. If you loved this, you'll love The New Danger, by Mos Def. If you listen to all of the last track on Joyful Rebellion, there is a secret message from K-Os himself, in a high pitched voice.

Though it might not seem as "hiphop" as 2002's Exit, Kheaven "k-os" Bereton comes back in force with some new arsenal. Just picking up where he left off, k-os adds rock/funk/folk sounds throughout the majority of the album. Although this might seem to scare away hiphop heads or casual fans, fear no more. From the introductionary alarming "Emcee Murdah" through the self-explanatory "Papercutz", you are in for a wild ride. Lead off single "B-Boy Stance" is a pure hiphop anthem that will get you "standin' in your b-boy stance" quicker than the beats' rpms. The 2nd single is "Crabbuckit" where k-os explains his non-conformity. We also get a taste of "Neutroniks" which was previously available through the US release of "Exit". If you're not scared of variety and profound lyricism, than look no further.
I see all these reviews stating "best Canadian this best Canadian that"...how about "best album of the year" or "best artist"!? Just stop categorizing artists by their provenance and let's start classifying them by their artform!

I've had a healthy respect of K-os for as long as I've known of his work. I picked up this album as soon as it came out and I was VERY pleased because - for the first time in a long time - every track was fantastic (nearly perfect) and the songs only grew on me after I listened to the disc 40 or 50 times.
JOYFUL REBELLION is the best disc of 2004, with the percussion that could come out of 40's New York, singing that could come out of the 70's Kingston, Spanish guitars and rich strings which are timeless, and, of course, rap that would be at home in the Bronx in the golden age of hip hop. It's varied in style, but never in quality.
Anyway, the point is, listen to the album - or in the very least, see him in concert. It's a rare thing to see someone live who you know will become a musicial legend, and it's even rarer to hear a CD which is your favourite album after the fist listen.

the second album by k-os left me absolutly in awe of what one visionary can create. the depth and diversity of this album allows for an experience unlike any my ears have had the pleasure of hearing before. anyone who enjoys amazing talent being displayed should by this album. k-os creates an album that not only has excellent music on it but also stands up as one of the few positive voices left in the hip hop wasteland that has been created by todays rap superstars. thankyou for this album, it is a reminder of just how good music can be. by the way if you ever get a chance to see k-os live i would highly recommend not passing up the opportunity he brings an awsome energy to his live show and does not dissapoint, his live version of superstar is amazing.

Joyful Rebellion is such a nice change of pace from the bling bling era mainstream hip hop is mired in. The lyrics are well thought and sincere, the beats are catchy. If you like artists like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Common it is more than likely k-os will find some serious playing time on your cd player.
This album will not disappoint. Pick up his previously released "Exit" too. There's always a message involved with k-os. He is a true artist trying to communicate a worthy message.
Joyful Rebellion against the current state of hip hop indeed.
