So he constructed a greatest-hits album that confirmed only one face of the Marley prism, the facet he deemed most sellable to the suburbs. […] In the event you’re searching for mass-market attraction to secular-progressive America, you do not embody songs that invoke collective guilt over the slave commerce, nor do you deal with the inconvenient fact that the bucolic Jamaican life-style of reggae, sandy seashores, and marijuana embraced by tens of millions of faculty freshmen, exists solely due to the brutal slave commerce. […] the songs on Legend supply only a temporary glimpse into his music. The definitive album of crucial reggae singer of all time is a hodgepodge assortment of affection songs, feel-good sentiment, and mere hints of the fiery activist whose politics drew bullets within the ’70s.”[23] Vivien Goldman wrote in 2015, “when he does get performed on the radio now, it is the mellow songs, not the indignant songs, that get heard – those which have been compiled on albums resembling Legend.”[24]
