Marley and the Wailers continued to build their musical skills on this album. The songs are catchy and difficult to resist. But unlike its predecessor, "Burnin'", "Natty Dread" never really holds your attention. Most of these songs float pleasantly in through one ear and out the other. There's nothing wrong with that, but (with the exception of the classic "No Woman No Cry") this isn't really an album to remember.

Bob Marley and the Wailers' first album after Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer left the group. Full of great tracks. "Lively Up Yourself" and "Natty Dread" are perhaps the most famous. The version of "No Woman No Cry" is quite different from the popular live version included on the Legend album--a quicker, somehow airier version of the song that would be immortalized in its definitive form on the Live! album a year later.
