We gave it a B+

Stretching out with the help of producer Don Was, the Grammy-winning Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers brood creates a raw-spirited album in Spirit of Music that keeps us doing sonic double takes. The distinctly bluesy pulp ‘n’ pulse of ”Keep My Faith” mixes naturally with reggae sounds, and ”Beautiful Day” carries ’60s echoes, replete with Byrds-ian guitar jangle. Folky reggae fiber comes courtesy of 26-year-old Stephen, singing a pair of Bob Marley tunes and extending a proud family and cultural lineage. B+
