4.5 superbNick Butler EMERITUS | June 26th 06

If there's a criticism of Legend, it's that it doesn't really flow the way an album should. It's a god amongst compilations, for sure, but it still fails to escape this most basic flaw of almost every compilation ever made. Which is where Exodus comes out on top as the most essential of Bob Marley records. It sounds like a Greatest Hits set in that the quality of the songs never waivers, and every song here could have been a hit, but it's an album in the truest sense. An album that boasts one of the best Side 2 stretches in history - "Jammin'", "Waiting In Vain", "Turn Your Lights Down Low", "Three Little Birds", "One Love (People Get Ready)" - five of the very best Marley songs. It boasts "Natural Mystic" and the title track, too - that's seven songs that rank somewhere around 'legendary'. An obvious pick for the best reggae album ever, sure, but a valid one.

5.0 classicArchibald C. Burke | December 11th 08

One of Bob Marley & the Wailers finest moments, and a defining album for roots reggae music. Exodus truly captures the spirit of Bob Marley, with the surrounding story of his attempted assassination and following concert performance become the stuff of music legend. For anyone looking to get into this artist aside from his greatest hits compilation, this is the place to start. The music and overall feel of the album is undescribeable, and should definitely hold a place amongst all music fans libraries.

Many people dont realize that Bob Marley has more music than whats just on Legend. Exodus is a Reggae masterpiece. The heathen, exodus, and waiting in vain are 3 songs that are relatively unheard. This album is a must for reggae fans!

4.5 superbMikkel | August 30th 12

From the dark, swirling guitar-licks to the bare and simple, yet undeniably intoxicating basslines of Barrett, mixed with tight drumming and Marley's incredible, laid-back singing-voice, this album provides some of the most solid material in the history of music. It's relaxed nature, beautiful music and inspired lyrics stand harmoniously perfect in-between Bob's political themes and texts, and his majiuana-loving reggae. The title song, Three Little Birds and Jammin' are three different, but great displays of his music and this album. Are rarely listen to Reggae, but when I do, it (stereotypically) has to be Bob!

5.0 classicBoris Canzano | August 29th 12

Whether you're a seasoned music critic or a stoned college kid, Exodus is Marley's opus and an absolutely essential album.

5.0 classicTanner Lichty (Twlichty) | February 14th 11

Probably the best reggae artist of all time. All the songs on this album are classics.

I like jammin. Do you like jammin?
Good album. I always thought it should be exobus though, since that's what the album cover so obviously says.

5.0 classiccheekyton | January 4th 10

Pure brilliance - Every song could have been a major hit on this album - as it is there are no less than 5 confirmed hits on this album already (the title track, Jamming, Waiting In Vain, Three Little Birds, and One Love). Don't even try to compare the posthumous tinsel-ly remixes of WIV and One Love on Legend with the original majestic mixes of these on the Exodus album. Shouldn't this be the definitive Bob Marley's Greatest Hits album? Notwithstanding, even the other album tracks are anything but filler, with Natural Mystic and Guiltiness (to name but two) ranking with the very best songs that Bob Marley ever did.
