Muze PNote CHANT DOWN BABYLON, which pairs Bob Marley's music with performances from a select group of urban pop stars, is strong enough to quell even the most skeptic Marley aficionado. Stephen Marley brought heavyweights from the worlds of hip-hop and R&B for this project, all of whom seem very familiar with Marley's work and bring a level of earnestness to the proceedings that demonstrate their reverence for the reggae great.
Muze PNote Krayzie Bone offers a rendition of "Rebel Music" that is one of the album's high points, while Erykah Badu oozes fiery soul over "No More Trouble" as through she were standing right next to Bob in the studio. Other standouts include Aeorsmith's appearance on "Roots Rock Reggae" and Rakim's addition to "Concrete Jungle." The excellent CHANT DOWN BABYLON functions like a rare glimpse of what Marley's music may have been like if he were recording today.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/9/99, p.76)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...a giant piety party with reggae's most hallowed saint as the guest of honor....It introduces a young audience to a deserving icon and makes a pointed political connection between present-day America and Marley's Jamaican slums..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/26/99, p.99)
- "...There's a reggae tradition of rapping over remixes of others' records, so this actually makes sense..." - Rating: B

Q (1/00, p.116)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...when it works, it's startling. Lauryn Hill is stunning on 'Turn Your Light Down Low'....Busta Rhymes & Flipmode Squad are scarily effective on 'Rastaman Chant' and Erykah Badu takes 'No More Trouble' to all sorts of places....a fine record..."

CMJ (12/13/99, p.29)
- "...posthumously fulfills Marley's longtime wish to reach out to African-American audiences..."

The Source (11/99, p.236)
- "...Respecting the integrity of Bob Marley's legacy, while making his music available to a contemporary audience, CHANT DOWN is truly a dream come true."
