Our Review

The emergence of another Marley son, Damian, as a hit-making force is one of the surprise music stories of 2005. At least one critic has called his “Welcome to Jamrock,” a doomy roots-style proclamation, the reggae song of the decade. Its namesake album is equally striking, varied both in music and mood. Damian fashions affectionate odes to women (the bouncing dancehall track “Beautiful,” the languid “There for You,” the old-school party reggae jam “All Night” with brother Stephen) while also issuing warnings of social trouble (“Pimpa’s Paradise”) and straight-up commands to dance (“Move!”). Jamrock is a strong sign of a continuing Marley dynasty, as well as the work of a man following his own imaginative path. This edition contains a bonus live version of the title tune.

Jr. Gong maturing (5 stars)
Danceable tunes ( Hey Girl, Move!,) solid roots reggae (We're Gonna Make It, There for You) and dancehall riddims all combine for a massively solid experience from the youngest offspring of the legendary Bob Marley. Masterful samples of papa's work (Move! Pimpa's Paradise). Lyrics and style on dancehall tunes are tasteful, contemporary and moving. Jr Gong's voice has matured as well compared to earlier works, at times the resemblance to h

Not my thing (2 stars)
This record was recommended to me by a friend of mine and fellow musician... but I can't say that I've really enjoyed it much. While the arrangements are interesting and the muscianship is top-notch, this is basically a hip-hop record, not a reggae record. If you're looking for reggae that leans more towards the roots style, this record will probably offend you. If you're into the more aggressive dancehall-hiphop style, then you'll probab

Biography

Born: July 21, 1978 in Kingston, Jamaica
Genre: Reggae
Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Damian Marley was only two when his father died, but the youngest of the Marley sons must have learned something. At the age of 13, he formed his first band, the Shepherds, which also included the son of Third World's Cat Coore and the daughter of Freddie McGregor; the group even opened up the 1992 Reggae Sunsplash festival. By 1994, Damian was working on his own solo project, and with the help of his father's label, Tuff Gong, he recorded Mr. Marley. Also lending a familial air to the sessions was...
