What happened here? I'm a long-time Matis fan, but I can't listen to this album. There are a few catchy pop beats to be found (by the way, I don't listen to Matisyahu for catchy pop beats), but they are quickly lost in the overly-produced, synthesized vocals. And the lyrical content has lost the power of past albums.

Artistic growth is expected—nobody wants to hear the same album with each new release. But Matis has gone completely pop. It's such a dramatic departure that if this were the first album I'd ever heard from him, I'd likely write him off. And that's a complete shame for someone who has released some incredible material in the past.

I'm sure this album will find an audience, but long-time fans may feel the need to "shake off the dust" of this less than stellar effort.

Always dope.

Matistahu = Dope

The producer of this album (kojak) = needs to be fired or stick to top 40 artists.

I miss matis with real music and real musicians. He's way too overproduced these days and it's sad to see, but he's always gonna throw it down and I'm always gonna listen (even if producers make him 80's synth pop instead of reggae)

Not for the "original" fan

Theres a few catchy songs on here. Sounds like a "pop" album to me. Pretty disappointed. I'll give it a few more tries but I want the old Reggae Matis back. If you compare this album with his older albums you'll hear the difference.
