Product Description

Amazon.com

When Buju Banton emerged from the Kingston, Jamaica, slums in the early '90s, he stirred controversy with a breed of dancehall steeped in the same obsessions with gunplay, sexism, and homophobia that characterized hardcore American hip-hop. But after converting to Rastafarianism and scratching to find more socially conscious and deeply rooted music on 1993's Voice of Jamaica, Banton (born Mark Myrie) proved that his conscience and creative restlessness are driven by more than mere commercial shrewdness on this album, his true breakthrough. Banton sounds like a changed man from the get-go. The spiritually uplifting title prologue segues into a chuckle and the resignation of "'Til I'm Laid to Rest." While Banton ruminates on everything from love and spirituality to geopolitics, his electro dancehall clichés have largely given way to organic, often spiritual music whose African influences are worn as a badge of honor. Banton has been credited with reinventing dancehall here, and it's hard to argue otherwise. His gruff voice bounds from its previous monotonous rap ruts into a warm and joyous newfound expressiveness that lights up the infectious "Murderer," the fatalistic "Not an Easy Road," and the party-time "Hush Baby Hush" (a reworking of the Zodiacs chestnut "Stay"). Banton even finds some folksy resonance with the acoustic-guitar backed "Untold Stories." Guest vocalists Garnett Silk ("Complaint") and Wayne Wonder ("What Ya Gonna Do") add some contemporary R&B touches to Banton's already considerably expanded sense of dynamics. This remastered reissue features three bonus cuts: the B-sides "Rampage" and "Sensemilia Persecution" and a previously Jamaica-only remix of "Champion." --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Reggae Album April 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album gets from rough dancehall anthems like Champion and Murderer to rootsy devotional themes that Buju's rough voice acts like sandpaper on, smoothing out tracks like Untold Stories and Til I'm Laid to Rest. The Late Great Garnett Silk is heard on Complain to great effect, and even fun things like Staaay just a little bit Longer are great. It's well produced and it shows the full diversity of Buju's abilities, what separates him from all other competition, as a straight chatter and as an artist and a singer. What a step up from Voice of Jamaica and even Mr. Mention, which WERE great albums, but this is what forever put Buju in a different category. Beenie Man might be the hottest thing out and sure, he's great and he's trying different things, but none of his albums can touch this. Buju also happens to put on the best show ever as I got to see in Boston amongst a bunch of hardheads and screwfaces throughout a whole "reggae fest" of good artists, and when he gets out he melts everyone. This album's good for you. (so is this review so give me a "helpful".)

5.0 out of 5 stars Buju Enters His Conscious Phase October 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album definitely marks a turning point in Buju Banton's career, and his fanbase is usually divided into two camps when offering their assessment of it: those who mourn the loss of the pre-Rasta, rudebwoy Buju famous for tunes about busting his gun and laying pipe with the ladies (mostly drawn from the ranks of the old school, die-hard, dancehall massive who were bumping his tunes in the early days), and those who just discovered Buju at this point in his career (mostly non-Jamaicans looking for a new Bob Marley to listen to as they smoke weed in their suburban bedrooms or college dorms) for whom his earlier music is mostly inaccessible (by which I mean that even if they manage to track down classics like "Dutty Sinting" or "Boom Bye Bye" they not only have trouble deciphering the lingua, but are usually roundly disgusted by the lyrical content when they do).

My sensibilities are more in sync with those fans in the former category, but unlike some of my more dogmatic brethren, I do enjoy watching Mr. Myrie evolve and grow as a person and an artiste. Granted, some of his post-Til Shiloh discs have "crossover" written all over them, but I think that on this one, he got it right.

There are very few missteps here. The album opens with a sparse, prayer-like invocation of Ras Tafari, pledging devotion to the Emperor until his kingdom comes again, and merges so quickly and effortlessly into the rich, Nyabinghi chant-inspired "'Til I'm Laid to Rest", that the listener is swept into Buju's world as by a strong river current.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nuff respect to a genuinely creative artist August 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I went home to Jamaica in 1996 and was chillin' with some friends at the university when I could hear somebody on campus blasting "It's not an easy road", the first time I ever heard the song.
As soon as I got back to the States, I bought it. I continue to love this cd three years later. Unlike some djs, Buju has always had something to say, and in this album, he says it eloquently and honestly. In every line, from "Til I'm Laid to Rest" to "Untold Stories", he tells the story of the uncelebrated Jamaicans who simply try to make a living everyday amidst incredible obstacles. He awakens the conscience in "Murderer" but still knows how to plea to be a woman's "Only Man". His range on this album is simply astonishing, and while everyone sings the praises of Lauryn Hill's originality, just take a look at this brave, honest testimonial of an album and you'll see that taking risks pays when you have a real story to tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album since Bob Marley November 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a majestic album, detined to be a classic on par with some of Bob Marley's best efforts. Nothing comes close, including his albums since. This one is truly a spiritual trip. Highly recommended.
Jah Bless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Buju Banton Album Ever July 20, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a must for any reggae collection. This is Buju's best album ever. The lyrics are deep, honest and the beats are fresh. "Not an easy road" could be each an every one of us life's anthem: a classic. "Untold Stories" and "Till i'm laid to rest" are beautifully composed socio-political pieces. "Wanna be loved" speaks to the hearts of everyone one of us - I wanna be loved not for who you think I am nor what you want me to be, could you love me for me -. You have to sing along every time! You have to jump up and dance everytime you hear "Champion." Buju has never (up to July 2002) done a better album - before or after. This is a timeless album. My mother loves it too. A must for any serious reggae collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars newly found January 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
a friend had givin me a tape that was to contain a live concert of Phish, it sat in my collection for almost a year and when i decided to finally get around to listening to it,it was something else; and it really was Something Else.From the opening track "til i'm laid to rest" through to the end of the tape i was drilled to the ground. Buju Bantan reached out through my speakers and raised my spirit to places it hadn't been since i last saw Garcia picking his guitar.The lyrics and the passion with which Buju has laid this album down is unsurpassed, and it has lifted my very soul, to Buju Bantan i say; Thank You.
