    i used to think it was ok, but now i just can't stand it. maybe once a month or so i'll let bob marley play, but otherwise i just can't fuckin take that same exact beat over and over and over and over.

    why it gotta be like that? does the same band play for every reggae artist? or is it just a recording of the wailers?

    and please don't say anything about reggaeton. that shit is horrific.

    god yeah - when that dropped I was so into it ... from their first collab on Damian's album I knew they'd make something real good.

    ^ just gave this a listen earlier ... I must admit I'm more dancehall than reggae but always will listen to the classics

    why you so deaf?

    there are many types of 'reggae' - from sound clash battles to roots & culture to lovers rock to dancehall to ska to .....................

    so no, not all the same beat.

    same beat. listened to a dozen different tracks here. all the same beat, masked by some weird noises that are completely off beat.

    not a fan.

    I'll drop some classic stuff to try to show my point when I get a few mins. its not for everyone & dancehall especially can sound strange if you've never heard it I guess.
