    • I love Rob’s album and I’ve loved his work since way back. Serious vibes. The list is dynamic and may change based on what is still to be released. It is still listed under the “Bubblin'” records which is big because this page gets a lot of traffic, most of our traffic in fact. All love..

  1. Greetings , Give Thanks mighty I been long time fan of Midnightraverblog. we apologize for the mix up ,I didn’t know at the time the list would been changed or updated . we really appreciate the fact you supported Rob Symeonn album “Indigenous” on your site and have still listed it on the Bubblin Records. We are going to Post to our Social Media platforms that Robs Album Made the top 10 at the time and is still on the site . InI was a Part of the Production Team with my Bredren JonahGold [Goldheart Music/ Sweden] . I will Relay your Message to Rob Symeonn , he will most definitely fuljoy to hear this . One perfect love / Jah Youth Productions

    • Believe me when I say that if you album is listed anywhere on this page it is the best of the best. We select only the albums we love, no politics, we don’t select based on what’s “hot” or popular. This list is popular and respected in the reggae community b/c readers know that they can spend money on any album listed on this page and it will be money well spent. It was a strong year for reggae releases and Rob’s album is among the best of the very best. Stay tuned…the list will look totally different at the end of the year…All love

  3. Went to studio one in 2012 , didnt get into the studio, couldn’t believe how rough the whole places looks, master tapes just thrown on a table,,bought a few repress.. Something needs to be done with studio one as its the home of reggae ,as with Hope road and trench town culture yard this place should get heritage status and be protected for everyone

  4. Hi just looked at you top LPs list , Raging Fyah 2nd cd Destiny released 2014 has to be one of the top 10 cds to come out of Jamaica last year,
