ROLLING STONE wrote: ” ‘Babylon By Bus’ offers a fine sampling of material from the group’s Seventies repertoire, ranging from the wrathful ‘Rebel Music’ and ‘Rat Race’ to such sultry dance tunes as ‘Stir It Up.’ Yet each number is now infused with a sprightly clarity and tenderness that redoubles the emotional impact. Bob Marley’s vocals are his most expressive — and least pompous — ever. It’s thrilling and often deeply moving to hear the mutually exultant dialogue he establishes with his Parisian audience: a testament to the global appeal of his positive vision.” Full review here
