AllMusic said: “It is a collection of consistently excellent early reggae songs by artists who
went on to thrive with reggae’s increased popularity, and others for whom this is the most
well-known vehicle. Jimmy Cliff is both the star of the movie and the headliner on the soundtrack… . The Harder They Come is strongly recommended both for the casual listener interested in getting a sense of reggae music and the more serious enthusiast. Collections
don’t come much better than this.”
Score: 4/5.
