Bob Marley’s son did this one without the Melody Makers to make an album less about being reggae and more about music. Ziggy seems to find some influence in the Dave Matthews Band, as many songs feature passages that could easily have been played by the DMB and would easily appeal to fans of their laid-back groove. Oddly enough, after many attempts to distance himself, Ziggy sounds more like his dad than ever before. The first half of the album is some of his strongest material, but unfortunately the second half falls a little flat as everything begins to sound alike.
