  3. A Marley get’s another one…surprised? not really b/c the album is very well produced and keeps the reggae vibes throughout. Jah Army, Pale Moonlight (played on HI radio 24/7), Made in Africa, Tight Ship, Sela$$ie is the Chapel, etc are all great songs.

  4. Congrats to Stephen Marley. you deserve this Grammy.
