Description

Few people were surprised when Stephen Marley's long awaited debut solo album "Mind Control" (Tuff Gong/Ghetto Youths/Universal Republic) premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart in March 2007; after all, the singing, songwriting and production excellence Stephen had brought to other Marley family projects over the years, including younger brother Damian's two Grammy Award winning albums, practically guaranteed "Mind Control" would be a remarkable effort. And indeed it is: "Mind Control" is that rare self-produced set featuring a cohesive range of diversified styles, each delivered with equal proficiency.

Whether Stephen is the revolutionary roots rocker decrying mental slavery on the album's title cut, an outraged prisoner protesting his jail term for marijuana possession on the bluesy "Iron Bars", or an irresistible retro-dancehall toaster flaunting his mic skills on "The Traffic Jam", each track on "Mind Control" reconfirms Stephen's expansive capabilities as an affecting vocalist, a versatile lyricist and an accomplished instrumentalist while furthering his renown as an ingenious producer.
