If it weren’t for the hype the label marketing bigwigs poured into this “rastajew,” Youth would have come out a happening record. But the label boys had to proclaim this themselves, robbing you of the fun of discovering Matisyahu. Assuming you knew nothing of the hype, what has the man got to offer in Youth? Religiosity sneaked into very polished pop templates, heard in “Fire of Heaven/Altar of Earth” and “Jerusalem…” Will you be able to relate to this? Congratulations if you can.
