#315: Burnin' by The Wailers

10.24.2011


Burnin' by The Wailers (1973)

Favorite Track(s): "Get Up, Stand Up" and "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Pass It On" and "One Foundation"

Thoughts: Doesn't the album art look like it could be from today? It's amazing. Apparently the cover for Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was inspired by it.

And the music itself? Reggae perfection. It's even a semi-sunny day outside, so I was able to imagine myself in warm, tropical breezes. I hope we see a lot more Bob Marley on this list. I used to see him all the time--my roommate Amber had a poster of him up in our bathroom. It was great. No, I've never smoked marijuana. This review went to a weird place.

Is This Better Than Help!?: Just as good, in my opinion!
