It would certainly be fair to point out that Nasio has a marked tendency to ape Bob Marley: that throaty wail has never been associated with any other singer. But before you criticize, bear in mind that we've needed someone who could sing like this since Marley's death in 1982. Granted, Nasio doesn't have half Marley's charisma, but he sure

Overview

It would certainly be fair to point out that Nasio has a marked tendency to ape Bob Marley: that throaty wail has never been associated with any other singer. But before you criticize, bear in mind that we've needed someone who could sing like this since Marley's death in 1982. Granted, Nasio doesn't have half Marley's charisma, but he sure knows how to write songs that sound simultaneously fresh and vintage, and he knows how to arrange and sing them, too. "Jah Glory" and "Ras Tafari," despite their hackneyed titles, are two of the best Jah songs in the modern roots canon, and "Trod a Ithiopia" (again, try to overlook the title) is a wonderful repatriation anthem, complete with Nyahbinghi drums and Amharic backing vocals. The production is consistently burnished to a high sheen, but never feels slick or glossy, thanks to pitch-perfect melodies and genuine instruments in place of computer programming. Highly recommended.
