Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers - Beautiful Day    Weeks on Chart: 4  Peak: # 45 (Sept. 1999)   buy it!
Ziggy moves surprisingly well from reggae to mainstream rock on this single from the Spirit of Music cd. It's mellow, almost country rock and Marley pulls it off. As with much of his music, the message is positive and life affirming. But here the suggestion to enjoy the beauty of life isn't heavy handed. The lyrics and the music are simple and nice.

Ziggy Marley - True To Myself    Weeks on Chart: 10  Peak: # 35 (July 2003)   buy it!
Dragonfly is Ziggy Marley's first record without The Melody Makers, the band he had with his sisters and brother(though sister Sharon does backing vocals). Ziggy made Dragonfly with a LA bunch of studio pros. He produced Dragonfly with Ross Hogarth, who's enginereed dozens of records, and REM producer Scott Litt. True To Myself's sound is smooth and professional but it does have a vibe that undeniably connects with Bob Marley's work. Ziggy, now 34, has a relaxed singing style that, like his father's, also conveys substance and confidence. True To Myself has the simple, positive, universal message and immediate familiarity and catchiness of Bob Marley's hits. True To Myself easily rolls forward as horns create a joyful mood and David Lindley and James Harrah strum and trade guitar lines. The downside is that True To Myself isn't particularly distinctive. True To Myself has the basic, concise form of Bob Marley's reggae classics but it doesn't have much appeal beyond its classic form. True to Myself is so laid back and reminiscent of other songs that it doesn't really grab your attention. True To Myself's lyrics are pleasant but a bit insipid. He shares pearls including "I can't make you happy unless I am" and "the truth it never changes."
