I love it. I have come to miss Bob's presence, but found an easy fix with a little computer magic: Add the original song, then fade into the ambient translation (or vice versa), to make a long, united front that could happily keep going and going and going... Great for long evening drives, as long as you're not going to get "too" relaxed. Some of the subtle organ beats and whatnot now come out more clearly on the original, since I know they're there and that's a favorite aspect of music for me- when you can hear a song you've heard 100 times from a new "angle." It's like looking into the frame of a great art piece and seeing what else is there. :)
The ambient soundscape flows to make each track area in a wonderful canvas of colors, with the foundation set by Rebel Music and No Woman No Cry. Drums and snappy bass drives The Heathen, while light guitars and piano subtley propel Waiting in Vain. The horn riff on Exodus is very powerful.
The artistry of Marley is given an intriguing - and timeless - interpretation by Laswell.
Perfect for when you're in an ultra-mellow mood and want something a bit different.
This album is beautifully crafted. It is a surreal adventure into the musical world of Mr. Marley. It is a must-have for fans of ambient music, reggae, Bob Marley or dub.
