Customer Reviews

Mr. Marley's a classic!
Debbie
The CD is a complete statement, and while individual tunes are great to hear, like his other albums, it should be heard in its entirety.
J. Martello
Love how all Bob's kids got so much talent just like him.

The title of Mr. Marley is truly the correct one. Many tracks contain the lyrics of Bob Marley, sung by Bob's son and Damian's half-brother Stephen. Damian toasts his way through an array of roots, and sometimes almost hip hop influenced reggae. This was a Marley production, and there's plenty of Marley influence. Some beats come from the days when Damian had seen his big brother Ziggy, and his band The Melody Makers (contained Cedella Marley, Bob's daughter), others are complete creations by Stephen "Raggamuffin" Marley, who has produced not only Damian's album, but "Chant Down Babylon", a Bob Marley album containing many of hip hops largest name. The Marley Brothers truly start to develop the type of music you hear later in "Halfway Tree" and "Welcome To Jamrock". It sounds nothing like "Welcome to Jamrock" for the most part, but is essential to understand the path Damian took to get to where he is musically at with his lyrics and stephen's producing.

I've been trying to get a copy of this record for a few years now. I was stoked when I saw it available through Amazon a few weeks back and I can say that any Jr. Gong fan should snap it up pronto. It has numerous tracks from his dad's records that have some new innovations and lyrics and it all is done masterfully. It is surprising that Jr. Gong has only put two other records besides this one and numerous singles. If you are trying to find other stuff he has worked on you should get Stephen Marley's latest and I also highly recommend the record "Red Star Sounds Presents Def Jamiaca" which is an awesome mix of hip-hop and reggae.

This CD was bought for me by a dear friend. I should've kissed him for acknowledging how much I adore Jr. Gong. Many good songs are on this CD. He includes one of Bob's songs "One More Cup of Coffee" which captures the rootsie style of his dad. For being an early CD for Damian I thought it was great!! Mr. Marley's a classic! If you love Bob, this is a CD you must get. Damian is my favorite performer of all his children.

Thank you Bob, as if the legacy of his music was not enough, his greatest legacy is his Children. Zig Zag, Ragamuff, Ju Ju, and Ky-mani, have continued to carry the troch admirably. This CD is an absolute must own, Jr. is fast becoming the best Reggae artist around, and this CD really sticks to his roots while adding some great beats and lyrics, Raga Muff and Jr. are a deadly combo, and they absolutely rock this CD out, Kingston 12, One More Cup of Coffee, Trouble, are Great tribute to their Dad. Makes me want to have children, Bob must be in heaven with a smile ear to ear.

This album is more for people who want to own everything by Damian Marley than anything else. Get "Welcome to Jamrock" and "Halfway Tree" before you get this album, because those albums show Damian in his true form. This is the beginning of Jr. Gong and isn't quite as polished. The album should really be called "Damian and Stephen Marley - Mr. Marley" because Stephen makes an appearance on almost all of the songs, and he produces them all. Most of the songs are remakes of Bob Marley classics, with Stephen singing the parts Bob sang and Damian adding his own "toasting" verses on them. "Trouble" = Bob's "So Much Trouble In The World." "10,000 Chariots" = Bob's "Midnight Ravers." "Kingston 12" = Bob's "Trenchtown Rock." "Keep On Grooving" = Bob's "Keep On Moving." "Searching (So Much Bubble)" = Bob's "So Much Trouble In The World" (again). "One More Cup Of Coffee" = Bob's "One Cup Of Coffee" (the best Bob cover on here in my opinion). "Me Name Jr. Gong" has Bob's "Crazy Baldhead" as the background music. So, its mainly a tribute to Bob Marley with newer versions of his songs.

The highlights of this album are "Love and Inity," "One More Cup Of Coffee," "Me Name Jr. Gong," and "Mr. Marley." If you like dancehall/hip-hop or if you've heard all of Bob's songs and want newer versions of them, this cd is for you. If you don't have "Welcome to Jamrock" or "Halfway Tree," get them first. They are both 5 star albums.

This cd is just a continuation of the magic first created by H.I.M. and passed down through the Marley family. If you have never heard any Marley family music, this is a good place to start

Mr. Marley, in the great Marley tradition, starts out with the easy tones we know of Marley dynasty. Damian Marley speaks the truth about social issues, peace, and consciousness. And the familiar refrain in "One Cup of Coffee, then I'll go" is an infectious, great song to sing along to. We need more music like this in the world. The CD is a complete statement, and while individual tunes are great to hear, like his other albums, it should be heard in its entirety. Too many people don't listen to CDs as a cohesive whole. Long live Marley Dynasty.

I thought This was Damiens new CD when my friend lent it to me, then I realized it was his first release. I thought this CD was Leaps and Bounds better than Welcome To Jamrock. That Says alot because I really liked Jamrock. People will say "Oh, he's just using his fathers Riddim's and dubbing over them" Don't listen to crap like that. For one because Bob marley's beats were phat as hell, and for two his toasty flow sounds great over them. So who cares where the hell it came from just as long as it sounds good, and folks...It sounds SUPERB!
