Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT - En­ter­tain­ment@glean­

COL­LEC­TIONS OF rock­ers have risen and fallen on Bill­board’s list­ing of top reg­gae full-length projects, but Stephen Mar­ley’s Rev­e­la­tion Part II: The Fruit of Life has re­tained a steady po­si­tion just be­low the peak from last week – just as it did on the pre­vi­ous rank­ing. It is at num­ber two on the Bill­board Reg­gae Al­bums Chart for the week of Oc­to­ber 29, 2016, as it was on the pre­vi­ous edi­tion of the chart.

Rev­e­la­tion Part II: The Fruit of Life has been at the num­ber one spot be­fore in its 12 weeks on the chart. This time around, though, the top spot is oc­cu­pied by Fall­ing Into Place (Re­be­lu­tion), which vaulted over Mar­ley’s set af­ter be­ing at num­ber three last week.

It is solely the Mar­leys – Stephen and Ziggy – who are main­tain­ing a Ja­maican pres­ence in the top 10 of the Bill­board Reg­gae Al­bums chart this week. And Ziggy Mar­ley’s self-ti­tled set is down the track at num­ber nine, down two places from last week in its 21st week on the chart. Drop­ping back out of the list­ing is Vybz Kar­tel’s King of the Dance­hall, which had popped up on the very trail­ing edge of the top 10 last week. Also gone is Reg­gae Gold 2016, which hung around in the lower half of the top 10 for a few weeks.

Stick Fig­ure’s Set in Stone is at num­ber three, mov­ing up from its fifth-place last week. The Fright­nrs’ Noth­ing More to Say has also got a two-place lift and is now fourth. Com­plet­ing the top five is Wan­der­ing Soul by HIRIE, the for­mer num­ber one re-en­ter­ing the top 10 in its sixth week on the chart.

In the lower half of the top 10, the EP Dub Col­lec­tion, Vol 2 by For­tu­nate Youth, de­buts at six, for­mer num­ber one Fire­flies (John Brown’s Body) has reen­tered the top 10 at num­ber seven and Ira­tion’s Hot­ting Up, is at num­ber eight, back in the top 10 in its 59th week on the Bill­board Reg­gae Al­bums chart.

Round­ing out the top 10 is i Thoughts by Cali P, mak­ing its chart de­but.
