What exactly have you been listening to lately? Older stuff like Buju Banton and Beenie Man or newer stuff like Vybz Kartel and Gyptian? Bob Marley is and forever will be my favorite so he's always the first to be recommended. Mr. Vegas, Lady Saw, Barrington Levy, Shabba Ranks, and Bounty Killer are also good. If you like ska "Check Your Time" by Westward Bound is a pretty good song. "Jerusalem" by Matisyahu is also a good song IMO. If you google "Reggae Gold" its like a WOW! That's What I Call Music kinda thing for reggae songs so you have a ton of songs to pick from there.

Wrap your ears around this one > JugglinShow_29thOct_ROOTS.mp3

Or for a more uptempo Jamaican kinda thing > JugglinShow_29thOct_BASHY.mp3

I have years and years of reggae and dancehall tunes, but really mixes and radio shows are the way to listen to this stuff. There's a couple to get you going!

Reggae has popped up in two TV series I watch and my friend was showing me some cool Bob Marley stuff last week, just knew there had to be more artist like Bob Marley.

Reggae is eons past this "artist like Bob Marley" idea. Wish people would have a listen to some good radio or check out what music is doing in JA in present times. In a way Bob Marley has ruined reggae for many current artists. For a majority of people he is the be-all/end-all and that's sad

Making my way down the list but so far it looks like I like the older stuff because I liked Buju and Beenie over Vybz and Gyptian

Buju and Beenie man are both current artists.

Have a quick listen to the radio shows I posted, it'll give you a feel for the 'sound'. You'll get a warped perspective looking shit up on youtube. That won't give you an idea of 'whats good' at all. Seriously
