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.

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!

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.

AMAZING WORK OF TRUE ART. THIRD WORLD'S IMAGINATION, STORYTELLING, COMPASSION, AND UNITY BRINGS TOGETHER A MILESTONE FOR FANS WHO HOPE TO SEE THEM IN CONCERT ONE DAY, BUT CAN'T BECAUSE OF THE DEMAND IN THIRD WORLD'S BOOKED SCHEDULES.

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. My all time favorites are NOW THAT WE FOUND LOVE & TRY JAH LOVE. I could (and did) play repeatedly....JUST COULDN'T (and can't) GET ENOUGH!!! Other than that, this was still an enjoyable disc with enough of my taste mixed in with the social commentary found in a lot of reggae that made it very likeable.

I bought the song 'Try Jahlove' only----because it has a jammin' reggae beat? It does. But if you actually listen to the group's lyrics for that song, you'll be blessed beyond the dancing frenzy of the driving beat: Third World is really preachin', mon! Every verse is fraught with--dare I say it?--spiritual meaning. Listen to it. Listen. All I'll tell you is this: 'Jah' is short for 'Jehovah'. 'Nuff said.

Very pleased and satisfied with my purchase. Delivery was at a reasonable time. Third World was one of my favorite reggae groups. This is the best of all of their CD's. I would recommend this to all reggae lovers! If you are looking for music from the 70's, 80's I would highly recommend Amazon for all your music. The variety is amazing!
