the new album is (PLEASE excuse this phrase, I will never use it again or in public) OFF THE FREAKING HOOK.

I can't describe it. It's downright amazing. Thank G-d he's not a one-and-out!

As a sophmore album (live ones don't really count!) this one is unbelievable. polished, wicked basss lines and beats, perfect vocals, lyrics obviously uplifting and meaningful.

wow.

What's he rapping about?

I'm not a big rap guy but I'm down for new stuff that's good... I've heard good things about him but thought it was an act at first with the limited clips I've seen of him in concert.

wow. it just gets better. halfway through now. Jerusalem is THE song so far. He's going to get EXTENSIVE radio play with at least 3 or 4 of these songs.

top of itunes today no surprise there.

That was my first thought too

I've heard his one song that's on the radios a lot but wasn't sure how the rest of the album was. Worth the $15 or so? It just seems so odd that this guy is singing this style of music.

Sounds like one of those Jap freighters we sunk in WWII,now a place to go scuba diving/make documentaries on the History Channel.

I hear the song "King without a Crown" on the radio and it sounds reggae. Is the whole album like that?

Jewish Reggae. Who woulda thunk it.

alright that's it. jerusalem is THE song, not of this album, at LEAST of the month if not year.

Maybe cause I'm jewish and all, but this song is worth the 99 cents if you're just gonna get one from itunes folks!

wow.

My sister saw him last night said its amazing as a live song too.

I've only heard the one song and I have to say it's pretty catchy. Question, with you being Jewish, how can one be Rastafarian and Jewish at the same time? Rasta being a form of praise for this religion.

Matisyahu is pretty damn good stuff!

I don't think he's a 'rasta' The guy is singing from REAL deep in his soul. I don't know what you call his music.

Awesome, awesome mucis. The guy is very talented, I don't care much for the message but the huge amount of talent the guy has more than makes up for that.
