Rolling Stone wrote: “The new record finds reggae’s foremost poet-prophet in a contemplative and pessimistic mood, secure in his religious beliefs but concerned about a gloomy future. If Uprising doesn’t snap one’s head back (as Survival did), it certainly proves unnerving with its alternating moments of exaltation and introspection… one feels a man reaching out and grappling with the dreadful possibilities of liberation and disaster. Such a tour de force, like much of Uprising, is as moving as it is deeply troubling.”
