New Album by Ziggy Marley (2016)
Contemporary reggae’s most trusted voice mixes it up on his self-titled album. Unity has always been the Marley scion’s message, but Ziggy packages it with a restless curiosity here. Tracks like “Start It Up” and “Marijuanamen” keep things breezy and traditional, but he brings snappy dance rock—with scratchy guitars on the upbeats—to “Love Is a Rebel” and a rustic soulfulness to “Better Together”. “Ceceil” borrows as much from ska as it does country-blues and New Wave. It’s a party-starter, for sure, and every style is invited.
