Obviously everyone has heard of the man and i'm sure everyone could name at least three or four songs he's written as well. It is true to say that Bob Marley never really wrote a bad song; and this album is the proof. For a little bit of background; this album was written whilst he was in London, after fleeing an attempted assassination on him, at a gig in Jamaica. Thus Bob appropriately named his album 'Exodus' meaning 'departure.' (Probably referring to the section in the Bible as well.) This is possibly his most political work he ever wrote touching on subjects such as 3rd world poverty and violence (Exodus, Natural mystique, Guiltiness), rumours (So Much Things to Say), with the signature Marley love songs (Waiting in Vain, Turn Your Lights Down Low) and probably most importantly; the idea of world unity (Jamming, Three Little Birds, One Love). This album is referred to as his best work and I would have to agree. It isn't just socially stirring but also spiritually uplifting to listen to depite the mood you may be in. If you're new to Mr Marley; I advise you buy Legend first (containing half of Exodus's songs on it) but if you're getting into him, it's certainly worth buying Exodus simply for the other half as well.
