It has been over three years since Lion of Zion Entertainment came up with this type of roots reggae style recording when they released Christafari's WordSound&Power. This solid "Reggae Redemption Songs" set is an enjoyable compilation of the best old school and modern roots reggae, the perfect recipe for guiding the new generation of reggae fans to righteous roots music for Christ, but also an entertaining album for any reggae aficionado who is simply looking for well produced modern roots reggae. Truly jam-packed with conscious roots reggae songs personally hand picked by Mark Mohr of Christafari, this set contains many powerful, infectious songs that will deliver a sunshine feel to any mood, as the artists float calm breezes of lyrics over mellow tunes. Marked by its authenticity, "Reggae Redemption Songs" features solid material written by artists whose lives have been drastically changed through their salvation in Christ. So, this is no ordinary album full of satisfactory saccharine songs aimed at stroking the sheep. This tasteful blend of rustic roots is more than just sweet Jamaican sounds to the ears. These are true "redemption songs. Included here are musical gems such as Felicia Marion's "The Rock", Jamba's "Nuh Worry", Monty G's "Youth Stand Strong" across Morgan Heritage's "Liberation" riddim, the combination tune "Emancipation Proclamation" by Christafari & Geneman, Wayne Stoddart's "Spirit Of The Lord" and Heaven Bound's decent cover of the Congo's "Fisherman".
