The standout tracks would have to be "The Traffic Jam", a heavy dancehall track which features Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, "Chase Dem", a politically driven reggae song that could easily pass as a long-lost Bob Marley B-side, and "Iron Bars", which could be the next roots reggae classic. The rest of the album is all very well produced and performed, and I can honestly say Stephen Marley is probably my favorite of all the Marley children. Since the album is so musically diverse it really has the chance to please just about anybody, but I know for sure that fans of Bob Marley and the Wailers, the Melody Makers, or just reggae music in general, will highly enjoy this amazing album. The "angry lion" has finally been released.....
Now comes the Acoustic slant to the album in which he himself claims captures the original vibe he wanted. And capture it did!!! The entire album (including bonus track) is passionate, powerful and raw. It reminds me of some of the concerts he does. The album specifically highlights the vocal range of Stephen as well as his lyrical power.
I don't like to compare the children as each has ther own strengths and pulling power....plus there is no vacancy to fill as Bob is alive and well through his music. However, if you are looking to re-kindle that Marley passion that you feel during his live performances, look no further than this album.
My personal favourites - Lonely Avenue, The Mission, Traffic Jam, the bonus track Someone to Love...........who am I kidding? I love them all!!! LoL!
On a side note, and not to take anything away from Amazon, the Best Buy version of Mind Control has two bonus tracks, which are solid. I don't like these exclusive deals, as I think the bonus tracks should be included on all versions rather than be a part of a promotional deal. But potential buyers of the album should keep the bonus tracks in mind.
