AllMusic Review by

The second half of the album's title pretty much sums it up. With the low end ably handled by Sly & Robbie, as well as Aston Barrett from Bob Marley's Wailers, Winston Rodney is free to follow his muses where they lead him, which is back to politics and spiritual matters. If not as perfect as Marcus Garvey, this set allows us a more detailed view of Burning Spear, an artist fully engaged in the world around him. An essential album from a genuine visionary.
