Product Description

Matisyahu ~ Live At Stubbs

Amazon.com

Although reggae's religious overtones are often overshadowed by the music's ties to ganja and the hippie movement, there are some socially active or religious leaning artists out there. One of the newest comes in the unlikely figure of a young Hasidic Jew named Matisyahu. Singing with a slight ghetto patois, in Yiddish, and even displaying considerable beat-box skills, the New Yorker is at his best when he works himself into fits of righteous indignation and Old Testament fervor (the limits of his vocal range are laid bare when he croons on ballads). The lean three-piece band on this live recording, his second album, is aerodynamic and flexible, able to do the slow reggae groove or rock out with ferocity. After 12 tracks of stripped-down reggae, however, the music tends to blend into one long groove. Nonetheless, there is an undeniable urgency in this live recording that comes through loud and clear, making it a live document of note by one of reggae's most interesting new figures. --Tad Hendrickson

I write this review after having seen him live last night at the Aladdin Theater. I had heard of Matisyahu (aka Matthew Miller) about 6 months ago on NPR. At first the idea of a reggae singer who was a hassidic jew seemed like little more than a novelty. I was wrong. I changed my mind after they played one of his songs. At that point I had to buy the CD (From Amazon of course). When the CD arrived I was absolutely blown away. There is so much passion and magic in his music. His writing and vocals are matched equally by the talant of his band. The highlights of the CD for me were the first track, Sea to Sea, (My favorite song), Chop 'Em Down and Beatbox. Unfortunately the CD does not do him justice compared with seeing him live. While the CD beautifully captures his voice and talant, what it can't do is convey his stage presence. If you ever have the opportunity to see him perform live, DO IT! It was worth the cost of admission. It wasn't just a show, it was one of the most intense experiences I have ever had at a concert. It's probably the closest I have ever come to having a spiritual experience. I have not been this excited about a new artist in at least 15 years, if not longer. I can only hope this is just the beginning of a very long and distinguished career. He has a studio album which is not available on CD but can be downloaded on Yahoo Music which is worth listening to. He also has a second CD due out in January.

I love reggae but am extremely picky. I pretty much only listen to Bob Marley and Peter Tosh and stuff like Shaggy makes my skin crawl. I finally heard so many good things about Matisyahu that I had to check him out, and I'm happy to say that he's totally genuine and incredibly talented. His music is intelligent and intense, and he's backed by a great band on this cd. I'm very happy I bougth this. I can't wait to see him perform live! In my opinion, this is a must for reggae fans.

An orthodox jew doing reggae?! That was such an odd combination that I just had to buy his two CDs. Believe it or not, but Matisyahu has created a really new and totally cool sound! The man combines real musical talent with a burning belief. He uses his music to express his own strong passion.
This is art inspired by religion much in the same way as the Sistine Chapel is. The religiosity or religion of the listener is not that important.
There are some songs that are not that good, but others, like Chop 'em down and Sea to sea are just great. He is still finding his way in the musical world, and some experiments are bound to fail (eg. Warrior and Beat box). I prefer this CD to Youth.
He also sounds like a quite cool guy in interviews, and is not a fanatic in any way, which is a relief.

Being a long time fan of reggae, I have a habit of giving the 'next big thing' a chance. Many times, it's a bit disappointing (Snow, Ace of Bass, Shaggy). Also, being a Jew (of more recent persuasion), I will look out for any "Jewishly inclined" reggae; but yet again the results were not that enjoyable. So when a friend in NYC told me about some Hasidic guy who was working on a reggae album - again I decided to give it a chance, but was not expecting much. Well just like all the other reviewers can attest to, I was pleasantly surprised. Matisyahu's style echos that of Sizzla in that he goes from DJing (or 'rapping' as Americans would call it) to singing. All the lyrics are reflective of his Jewish faith and culture; pointing towards Hashem as the sole reason for his craft. This album is of great quality; and showcases more diversity than his studio album (which doesn't include "Beat Box" - a great freestyle-feel hip-hop number). Of course I prefer the studio versions of some of the songs. I didn't give it "5 stars" because it is not the best of the best reggae that has ever been made. But for religious Jews, this music really strikes a chord and it's safe to say it is probably one of the most beloved CDs in my collection.

I was prepared to not like this CD, cuz I generally don't like ANYONE's live albums. However, I found myself equally moved by this live version, as I was the studio recording of Matisyahu's first album, "Shake Off the Dust - Arise." I'm not Jewish, but Matisyahu's music transcends to all races and religions. When you go to bed at night, try listening to this CD in the dark, wearing headphones, volume cranked. I guarantee it will give you chills!

This is great music. My only complaint is that he could have varied the beats more in the album. He basically uses the same beat over and over again, but his music is so impressive that he still gets 5 stars.

Like finding a twenty dollar bill in an old pair of pants, discovering a bright new Reggae voice in a young Hasidic Jew named Matisyahu Miller is a welcome surprise. The word-play of his lyrics is informed by the Torah and the Talmud rather than the mysticism of Rastafari, but it is still the same joyous spirituality that runs through all true Reggae. His stripped down band brings an American edge to the mix with touches of rock and hip-hop (think Sublime or H.R.) but keeps the foundation true. As someone who has traveled extensively in Jamaica and listened to a lot of roots music, let me tell you- If tracks like "King Without A Crown" don't make you want to get up and skank, maybe Reggae just isn't your thing.
