Bunny Wailer has always been in step with the resonant soul of reggae and has always been truly committed to the Rastafarian religion, and this album was Bunny's bid to the ruling dancehall nation to take heed of the roots from whence dancehall originated. With the rock-solid, yet fluid rhythm of the Roots Radics band (the band that transformed roots reggae into the new style), Bunny is in top form to deliver a set of old-school-tempo tunes intent on teaching the newer generation a musical history lesson. Highlights on RULE DANCE HALL include updated renditions of Marley's "Stir It Up" and "Put It On."
