4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | October 23rd 14

Before The Wailers became Bob Marley & The Wailers after founding members Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer took off for solo careers, they released a sort of last hurrah in the form of 1973's Burnin'. While previous releases focused mainly on laid-back themes, much of what is contained on Burnin' is a call to action. With songs like "Get Up, Stand Up", and a cover of Eric Clapton's "I Shot The Sheriff", the album has a more revolutionary feel than previous albums. Still, songs like "Pass It On" still show the peace-loving, dope-smoking side to The Wailers we all know and love. Some of the best songs they've ever written also appear on the album in the form of "Hallelujah Time" and "Burnin' And Lootin'". Don't pass it up if you're a fan of The Wailers and reggae in general.

3.0 goodArchibald C. Burke | January 8th 09

Wow, no review for this one yet? I guess it's only been out for 35 years. A pretty nice outing for the Wailers...yes, that WAILERS, this was before Livingston and Tosh had left, and before the unit was renamed Bob Marley & the Wailers. Since they recorded under this name, it seems appropriate for that unit to have their own band page, but I guess that's too confusing for sputnik.
Anyway, the album has some memorable hits on it (I Shot the Sheriff, Get Up, Stand Up, Duppy Conqueror...) and is good launching ground into the more mainstream Marley music that would come to follow. It's nice to hear the additions of other song-writers on these early recordings, although I still find myself partial to Marley's compositions. Still, while the original Wailers were still a whole, they definitely brought their own brand of sound to the recordings.

Oh excellent, thanks for taking my review down cause your system didn't work.
