Editorial Reviews

One of the kingpins of Jamaican reggae music, Banton delivers his most musically audacious work to date. This album unites Buju's vocals with organic roots reggae rhythms carefully crafted by a select aggregation of Kingston, Jamaica's finest musicians. His 1992 debut "Mr. Mention" earned him more #1 singles than any other Jamaican artist, including Bob Marley, and his 1995 Grammy-nominated "'Til Shiloh" remains one of the best-selling reggae albums of all time.

i picked this cd up yesterday and i give it a 4.5 of 5 and would definitely rate it as just as good as his previous big albums like inna heights, friends for life (my previous fav), & of course til shiloh.

for me, half this album felt like it was speaking to me personally and uplifting me to be more conscious and aware of my own living. i had goosebumps while listening to 3 songs so far even though it was the first time i had ever heard them. i can envision myself or even a new listener hearing this cd 20 years from now and having it be just as relevant then as it is today. i'd like to think that even my mother would enjoy listening to this cd, even though she may only be listening for the catchy beats and nifty drumming.

this is message music at its finest and instantly one of my favorite reggae albums of all time. i hadn't heard such inspiring tunes on an album in a very long time, and i am constantly searching. buju is back on top and has confirmed to me that he has never left, he just took his time to make some quality music when lots of others are just looking for a quick pay check... thanks buju!!!

Finally, after this album's release was delayed so Buju could release his angry dancehall album "Too Bad," we finally get "Rasta Got Soul."
And to those who like Buju for his rootsy efforts, such as the "Til Shiloh" album will find much to love here.
The album title may pay homage to the Toots and the Maytals' "Reggae Got Soul," but this album is the familiar Buju rootsy reggae.
The old single "Magic City" is here, and fans of "Til Shiloh" and "Inna Heights" will see that "Rasta Got Soul" picks up right where those left off.
As good as "Magic City" is, it has a lot of company with even better songs, such as the rootsy and powerful "I Rise" and "Rastafari."
While there may be little surprises here, Buju still shows he's firmly grounded in his convictions, and like Michael Rose, he knows how to put out solid album after album.
Other dancehall/reggae artists make sell more units, true fans of those styles know where the good stuff is, and they can find it in "Rasta Got Soul."

That is the sound of this cd . The best of The Original Wailers with some Toots , Melody Makers and 3rd World is now Mark Myrie who is called Buju Banton . Im impresed by his talent . Wording , writing , producing , singing , very Good . But it makes me wonder if the Rasta Has Soul or Really Good Tunes Delivered . Good introduction to the new generation of Reggae Talent ...

While 'Til Shiloh is often hailed as Buju Banton's "breakthrough" recording, I think Rasta Got Soul is a much more accessible album. On this record, Banton (mostly) sings in his natural voice, rather than the gruff growl he uses on much of 'Til Shiloh. I think Banton was trying to make a crossover record here, but some of the songs are a little weird. Strings and a flute on a Buju Banton song? Bedtime Story is pure schmaltz. But those are small criticisms. Mostly, this album has a great groove and the musicianship and production is excellent. This album makes me sad that Banton will spend at least a decade of his life in prison. I think he was hitting his stride with Rasta Got Soul.

Buju Banton is one of a very select group of Reggae artists who has the ability to appeal to such a wide range of people and do so on both the international and local levels. Throughout his career, whether dominated by Dancehall, dominated by Roots Reggae or dominated by scandal and controversy, Buju has managed to retain a seemingly unerring and indomitable appeal which is, perhaps, unmatched by any living Reggae artist today. Not even the slightly more well known artists, for the most part, can claim such a standing as Buju. For example, Sean Paul's next album when it arrives some time later this year is almost certain to be a BIG seller, doing over a million units pushed and going platinum worldwide in the process. Sean Paul, as much as the hardcore Dancehall heads may hate to admit it, has, in his time in the international spotlight done SO much for Dancehall and Jamaican music which is evident, if by nothing else (and there is so much more `else'), how many times you'll hear Dancehall Artist `A' utter the phrase, "Mi waan tek it to di place where Sean Paul reach". However, that being said, back in Jamaica were you to hold a show in Sean Paul's own yard with only two performers, himself and Buju, Sean Paul would have to play the opener and Buju would close the show. You could even take a more difficult case, in that of Beenie Man who has definitely headlined quite a few bills on which Buju Banton has appeared and done so locally and foreign and that's to his very own credit as, at least in my humble estimation, the Dancehall, in and of itself, has NEVER seen a more talented practitioner than The Doctor.
