What’s hot and what’s not in this week’s new releases.

Stephen Marley – Revelation Pt 1: The Root Of Life.

The spirit of Bob Marley & The Wailers has little chance of waning as the legend’s legacy lives on in the sentiments and musical direction of his sons Ziggy, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ and 39-year-old artist and producer Stephen Marley. Following on from his last album, Mind Control – the contemporary, slick release of 2007, Stephen’s latest release is a return to a classic roots, rock and reggae sound and a celebration of Rastafarianism. Keeping it in the family, guest vocalist Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley along with Spragga Benz and Buju Banton add ragga and dancehall elements, while Ziggy Marley, Wale and the cast of the African stage show FELA! provide more soulful support. Stephen demonstrates the romantic side of reggae on love songs She Knows How and Pale Moonlight. With a rasping wail reminiscent of his father, political expression and real roots, Stephen revives the original reggae sound with this solid album.
