4.5 superbAlabaster Jones | February 15th 17

Sometimes I forget how fortunate I am to live in a fully developed country. I don't have to worry about being oppressed by foreign governments or being treated like garbage in my own home. Survival is a message to the struggling from people that know what struggling is, and as such is an intimate and altogether inspiring affair. The music here is top-quality Wailers; roots reggae that is full to the brim with various instrumentation, backing vocals, catchy choruses, and beautiful voices all around. It's not quite anything that Exodus didn't do already, but it's still some of the most well-rounded and joyous reggae out there, and the overarching theme of survival through unity and like-mindedness is executed with tact and a strong empathy. There's not really anything bad to say about it, really. You simply can't go wrong with late-70's Marley and The Wailers.

5.0 classicBiOZed | November 7th 11

Probably the most pious side of Bob Marley with Uprising. Survival is a reggae masterpiece and each track that composed it is a pure jewel. Period.
