Amoeba Review

05/30/2014

Album 5 from Crown Heights-based, muscle-tongued Jewish dance-hall toaster and singer, and while his rapidfire wordplay has slowed down, his ambition certainly hasn't. It would be remiss not to mention the fact that this is album 2 from Matisyahu 2.0, which is to say, the second album since he caused a stir by ditching his Hasidic gear and shaving his beard. He even dyed his hair blonde. The music's hair has been dyed a little blonde too, at least highlighted in places. Matthew Miller aka Matisyahu is expanding his sound effortlessly and with aplomb into sparkling sample-a-delic R&B and emotional, uplifting indie-rock of the jam-band variety. As he has repeatedly stated in the press, Miller is experiencing a sense of rebirth, both spiritual and musical, and it would appear that his long term commitment to Judaism, much like his long term commitment to reggae remains, for the most part, unchanged during this process. Instead, this commitment is solidified as he asks hard questions of his faith and its role in his life and, similarly, is clearly asking the same questions of his music and its reggae influence. An exciting change.
