Reggae messiah and musical superstar Burning Spear is celebrating his 35th year in the music world with a new album, and another reminder of why he’s been around for so long. Spear, known to his friends as Winston Rodney, has always tried to deliver his political message to the people through the mass of popular music in Jamaica and he’s able to do it once more in this new release.

Fresh and dubby as you’d expect from him, Spear allows his personal struggles to come through in his music, giving it an edge of more popular reggae as he drives through Friends, Down In Jamaica and the bouncy positive sounding Fix Me which delivers an uplifting message about getting the most out of your life. Spear might have been in the game for over 30 years, but he’s sounding as new and as intriguing as he ever has.
