Advantagesgreat music, great times

Disadvantagesnone

"Bob marley is the best reggae artist ever! his excellent instumentation and slow beats gives his work a great quality which you can really enjoy and just kotch (relax) to. His catchy lyrics, melodys and bass lines makes his songs great to sing along to and really get in to. The great thing about his music is that its not just a certain group of people that can enjoy his music but everyone can not just rastafarians or ethnic groups but everyone ..." Read review
