Coming five years after the rootsy Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life, Stephen Marley's 2016 LP Revelation, Pt. 2: The Fruit of Life is a more electronic and studio-driven effort, which in the case of this artist/studio whiz kid, is a plus.
The enduring promise of reggae is that righteousness and hedonism can mesh. Social justice, love, perseverance and partying all take their turns on “Revelation Pt. II: The Fruit of Life,” Stephen Marley’s follow-up to his Grammy-winning 2011 album, “Revelation Pt. I: The Root of Life.” The shift in title from “Root” to “Fruit” is significant.
