Image of Third World


One of the most popular reggae bands in the world, Third World is also the most enduring. Jamaica's longest-running self-contained band (only The Wailers existed when Third World was formed in 1973), the group has not only been hailed as the "reggae ambassador" but is often credited as the first reggae act to incorporate funk, Philly soul, hip-hop, South African township music, ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Primer! Emphasizes "singles" March 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a good primer on Third World, a good price for a sampling of all of or nearly all of the distinct periods of the band, 20 songs is not enough for a representative sample of the band but it's a start. To me, the 2 early '80s albums, "You've got the power" and "Rock the World" read like greatest hits albums, however they are only represented on this compilation with single released versions of "Try Jah Love" written by Stevie Wonder (& M.A. McCully for the record) and "Who gave you (Jah Rastafari)." Yet, the solid positive message for which Third World has become known for permeates each song on this compilation. One would not be honest if one did not acknowledge that they have had downswings and upturns in their career but this is very largely due to their seeking to produce music diverse in nature and trying to keep up with musical trends. That said, it does seem that they started losing some of their direction with the 1985 "Sense of Purpose" album even though 2 songs from this collection come from there and I think "Sense of Purpose" itself is a marvelous song (right! the message).

I have mixed feelings on the band, they have been appraised at times for being a more commericalised reggae; but "inna time like this" or any other, their music can be very inspiring. I don't know the very early works as well such as "Journey to Addis Abba" or the other early albums, "96 Degrees in the Shade" and their premier album with Island Records titled "Third World" that have those primitive types of painting on them. However, I read the reviews here are very positive regarding them and the two albums I know well are some of the best in my humble collection. "Reggae Radio Station" from 1987's "Hold on to Love" should be on this collection as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Mon, Yes! March 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This whole CD is absolutely wicked! I urge everyone, familiar with Third World or not, to give this a listen. Believe me it has something to offer you whether you're a reggae fan or not. If you're not already a fan, this may very well convert you. Please do yourself a favor and give it a listen! There isn't enough room here to discuss the wonderful experience that listening to the stellar tunes included in this CD will allow you. Third World are truly Reggae Ambassadors and this CD is truly the Ultimate Collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Reggea August 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Third world was the group that got me interested in reggea. Songs like "Now That We Found Love" and "Always Around" stuck themselves in my head and would not leave.(I would not want them to.) This is a good album to start with if you are new to their music. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past! THIRD WORLD August 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Try Jah Love" is one of my lifetime favorites. Hearing "Now That We've Found Love" reminds me of the wedding reception scene at the end of the Will Smith/Eva Mendes movie "Hitch."...and Third World has taught me that I DO like reggae!!!

Just a great collection of music. A little new to Reggae (other than Bob Marley), said to be the Ambassadors of Reggae. I do admit it is a great collection.

Not the biggest fan of Reggae music, this collection gave enough of the reggae mixed in with the R&B to make it very flavorable for my ears. Read more
