    Ziggy Marley, the LP, shares much in common with Robert Palmer's Pride, Black Uhuru's Chill Out, and even Gregory Isaacs' Night Nurse, as its diminutive, deft, funky, tight, electro-tinged, and sincere. With all these ingredients at just the volume, it's still one single or classic short of being the best-of Ziggy, but the cool temperament and empowering mood of the album offer a life-affirming soul massage through music.

    On the whole it struggles to strike a light, far less catch fire. [Aug 2016, p.78]

    It’s rooted so firmly within his comfort zone that when he sings about revolution on Start It Up, it’s more eyebrow-raising than consciousness-raising.
