I got this disc based on the single "King Without a Crown" which I loved. The idea of a Hasidic Jew who does reggae is pretty cool. The album itself is pretty cool too - a fusion of reggae and rap. Though I don't spin this one but I don't have any particular reason for that. It's nice to hear some positive music from the Jewish perspective though.

Useless Fact: According to his biography Matisyahu used to be a big Phish fan until he realized that music and religion were not mutually exclusive.
