Looks like its become a collector's item.
Gary Teune
Then he sings Exaltation, which is also an amazing song on the live album, and on this one, it is also very good, nearly as good as his live version.

Matis, if your reading this, please come back to your roots.

This was the first album he put out, before "Live At Stubbs" and it is truly what I saw a magazine article call it; "Hasidic Reggae". It has that slower reggae sound, not as poppy or upbeat as his albums since "Youth" and a message of or even to G-d that you sometimes don't find in his newer stuff. This is in no ways a knock on his latest albums, but you can hear on "Shake Off The Dust..." he was trying to find a way to combine his beliefs into a music that was often fairly religious itself, that being the reggae style of Peter Tosh or Bob Marley.
The version of "King Without A Crown" here is so much more soulful than the one on "Youth" and "Chop'Em Down", which he redid uptempo for "No Place To Be", is excellent.
Be forewarned: If you don't like the older reggae sounds of Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear, or Toots & The Maytals then you might not like this one. But this is what got me into Matisyahu so I really think if you like him, you'll like this.

In my opinion, this is his best work. The sound is a bit unrefined, but it has a lot of energy. It has so much more soul than the albums that came after it. It's really beautiful.

It has been discontinued for some reason. Probably because the songs on it are a little different than the "official" recordings that came out later...or because there are different musicians on some of the tracks. I honestly think he should have stayed with the musicians here. The music blends very well. It's less "rock" feel than the later works, and more melodic. Very nice vocal intros on some of the tracks.

Looks like its become a collector's item. I could sell mine now and make a quite a profit. But its so good I'm going to hang on to it!

Its is a really good album. It is very spiritual like all of Matis' music. It is less refine but the message still comes out clear and loud. If you can find it buy it even if it may be a bit pricey.

This album has a lot of the original tracks from Live at Stubb's, and was released a year earlier. This was his first album, and it feels really authentic and full of real roots reggae. It is not an album that resembles anything he's done since. It is a very pure album, without all the bells and whistles of his latest albums. It shows why he has become so popular since then, because he had tremendous talent. I now know why some people said Youth was "overproduced." Compared to this first album, I'd have to agree, but I liked Youth, Light, and Spark Seeker, although Spark Seeker took me a little while to warm up to it.

This album has some really great tracks on it, starting strong with Chop Em Down, then going to some Jewish chant on the second track that you can hear on Live at Stubb's Vol. II, before he launches into Got No Water on both of those albums, which is such a great song. Then he goes to King Without a Crown, which is almost as good as the live version he did on his live album. The next track is Father in the Forest, and it has a nice, interesting sound to it. Then, Aish Tamid, which is another one of my favorites, is sung with almost complete accuracy to the live version. I haven't really listened to Short Nigun, because it seems to be a nonvocal, and I generally don't listen to those much. Candle is a little too long, but it's not a bad song. Close My Eyes is one of the best on this album, mostly because it also includes Heights from the live album. I guess he took that song apart for the live album. Either way, that song is one of the best. Then he sings Exaltation, which is also an amazing song on the live album, and on this one, it is also very good, nearly as good as his live version.

This is my favorite album of Matisyahu. Although he's changed creatively somewhat since, the purity of this first album can't be matched. Love it!!! Hopefully it will come to CD again.

His first album. His best album. Here you will hear the reggae rhythms and Chassidic spirituality Matisyahu/Matthew Miller is known for before he morphed into the Chassidic Reggae Star without the beard and tzitzis/kippah persona. Razor crisp lyrics delivered flawlessly. Even though Matisyahu's live albums are also well mixed and fun, this first studio effort will meet all your expectations. It sounds a lot like Akeda in that it is from the heart and soul of the artist in its clarity and simplicity. This one is also more expensive than his other albums (I paid about $24 inc. usps), but well worth it. You haven't tasted Matisyahu in all his raw talent until you've tasted this one.

This is one of the greatest Matisyahu album that I've ever heard. He began with a good start with his music, and he continues on strongly. I can't wait for the Akeda album. G-d bless Matisyahu.

I didn't know there was a matisyahu CD prior to the Live at Stubbs album until I saw this one and I love it, very nice mellow feel to this album. I love spark seeker too but this one is so drastically different the contrast is nice to have.
