Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers: Jahmekya [Virgin, 1991]
Slowly--too slowly, but faster than we had any right to hope--he's getting it: if "This generation will make the change" doesn't convince, "When will the innocent stop being punished for their innocence" will certainly do. And the complex drive of the music, cut this time in full Tuff Gong regalia, could pass for innovative: a genuine reggae groove at pop speeds with pop horns. More likely to endure as a turning point than to pass into half-assed oblivion.
