“Kaya” by Bob Marley and The Wailers - album review

TJR says

Cleverly annexed from the “Exodus” sessions, “Kaya” stands cohesively as an album of peace, love and marijuana. Once I get over myself that it’s going to have a laid back, non-political outlook, the sheer warmth of the wails and the vibes, combined with the brilliance of the music, just permeates down to very soul; the aural equivalent of basking in the sunshine. There’s not a weak track on-board, but “Easy Skanking”, “Is This Love” and “Satisfy My Soul” are first-half giants, whilst “Time Will Tell” closes the album mightily. I once got a hotel mento band in Montego Bay to play this song for me – it was one of the most magical musical experiences of my life. Those boys felt that tune; it's not all milk, honey and coconuts in Jamaica. A round of drinks was no price at all, for it was priceless. I’m not one for getting all hippy dippy, but this song is simply magical, transcendental even, and, for me, stands as Bob’s greatest masterpiece.
