"In his triumphant U.S. tour last year, 31-year-old Marley displayed the kind of stunning musical stance and convincing persona that has made him the most important and acclaimed new arrival in rock since Bruce Springsteen... There are only a dozen or so artists of each generation (Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, among the most prominent in the 1950s; the Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Hendrix, among others in the 1960s) who carry both the artistic vision and popular appeal to be truly influential. Marley is an artist with enough impact, originality and purpose to join them." – Robert Hilburn, Los Angeles Times (May 1976)
