Ziggy Marley - Dragonfly
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Ziggy Marley - DragonflyOn his solo debut, the son of Bob exchanges his brothers and sisters (a.k.a. the Melody Makers) for such heavyweights as guitarist David Lindley, Incubus DJ Chris Kilmore and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and John Frusciante. The result is an album that owes more to reggae’s spirit—and its message of peace and love—than to actual one-drop riddims. Standout tracks include the slow blues of “Melancholy Mood,” the rock-oriented “I Get Out” and the sitar-laden prayer for non-violence “Don’t You Kill Love.”
