When you first pop in this CD maybe for you it's a record or tape , what do you hear? You probably know what you're going to hear before the sound actually reaches your ears. It's the signature Bob Marley sound. The Rastafarian singing, with repetitive lyrics, and the bumbling reggae beats are always associated with the Bob Marley man himself. Rastaman Vibration is no different. Positive Vibration is a very catchy opening track, with the instruments playing the same notes Marley sings behind him.
The opening lyrics are the place from which the album gets its title. This track does lag a little near the end, but it's not so long that you reach anywhere near the skip button or the fast forward button. The second track is probably the most well-known Marley tune on Rastaman Vibration. Roots, Rock, Reggae is the only track on this album that you will find on the numerous greatest hits compilations for Marley.
And it's popular for good reason. The constant chanting of, "Play us some music! Just some reggae music! This is the formula for success, and we've seen it in Marley's tunes before. Now, let's slow the tempo down a bit. Instead of the usual pounding drums you hear in Marley's music, we hear some distorted, distant-sounding snare beats. Johnny Was is a great song, definitely one of the highlights of this album. Features Interviews Lists. Streams Videos All Posts. Release Date February, Genre Reggae.
