Pin It



As the old adage goes, you can't judge a book by its cover and thus is the case with Matisyahu—he looks more like Krusty's dad than your traditional pop/rock artist. If people can put their pre-conceived notions aside and simply press play they will quickly discover that this 26-year-old White Plains, NY native is onto something with Youth. The unique sound is a Bob Marley meets Sublime reggae hybrid with traces of old school hip-hop thrown in for good measure. This album is a breath of fresh air that shimmers with gems such as King Without a Crown, Jerusalem and What I'm Fighting For. While the religious undertones should come as no surprise, this is one of the year's most refreshingly enjoyable albums thus far.
