Burnin' is the sixth studio album by The Wailers.It was written mostly by bandleader Bob Marley and produced by Chris Blackwell. A commercial and critical success in the United States, Burnin' was certified Gold and later added to the National Recording Registry, with the Library of Congress deeming it historically and culturally significant. Critic Robert Christgau wrote: "This is as perplexing as it is jubilan - sometimes gripping, sometimes slippery. It's reggae, obviously, but it's not mainstream reggae, certainly not rock or soul, maybe some kind of futuristic slow funk,War without the pseudo-jazz. What's inescapable is Bob Marley's ferocious gift for melodic propaganda. It's one thing to come up with four consecutive title hooks, another to make the titles Get Up Stand Up, Hallelujah Time, I Shot the Sheriff, Burnin' and Lootin'.'" In 2003, the album was ranked number 319 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. U.K. Import.
