Exodus [30th Anniversary Edition]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matthew Hilburn
Recorded in London following an attempt on his life, Exodus shows Bob Marley mellowing a bit. Despite some powerful political tracks, Marley adopts a less fiery, more reflective approach than his previous outings. Still, it's hard to find reggae as good as this.
