Classic revolution reggae! Crucial Bob.
This album is his ultimate work. Brilliantly orchestrated and emotionally evocative, Marley created a timeless work that appeals aesthetically and philosophically. Marley calls the listener to participate from the first song, begging us to move both to the music and to the message. There is a rawness to this album that harkens back to earlier Marley and appears in the sound of Hallelujah Time.
Tracks 4,5,6,7,8 are the most powerful in the Marley cannon. Kaya is maybe the only album that juxtaposes such brilliance. The cool and reserved genius shows that Marley can move both subtly and peacefully. Small axe warns of the toppling of the power structure, but does it so harmoniously and beautifully that it exudes a wonderful irony.
This album is the "cornerstone" of any Marley collection or music collection for that matter. It is almost impossible to fathom the immense genius that Marley had, but it is slowly apprehended and revelaed by listening to this album over and over, and then some more.

Bob Marley & The Wailers - I Shot The Sheriff (live)
I Shot the Sheriff": This was a worldwide hit for Eric Clapton (it seems weird that others had great hits with Marley's work, without him having the same success). Marley's version is very different from Clapton's (although both work). As liner notes point out, there is more of a political edge to Marley's version. Band, backing vocals, and Marley are all in fine form on this work.
