..though I’d bet $5 that Steve Lyons owns both of his albums. Rivalfish strikes again.

Does Matisyahu’s music suck ? Its an acquired taste. Matisyahu is, if nothing else, responsible for “spreading the wellsprings” of Chasidus to the many nations. Many souls will hear the message in his passionate lyrics, and G-d willing return to their Jewish “roots”. I live in the Lubavitch community and hes at least captured the childrens ears and made them feel special vicariuosly through his success. I personally as a lifelong musician arent inspired musically, (its not original enough for me), but thats a personal choice. If you are attracted to a hybrid of exisiting Reggae “hooks” borrowed from “roots” musicians (who live that life for real), mashed with lyrics of Hasisdic sentiments then you will dig his “shtick”. If you are offended by a white Jewish man looking like hes “fronting” in a traditionally black genre, then it wont move you. I for One am inspired by the reception given an Orthodox Jew in a world of secular values. If he grows musically with that fan base he could do a lot for the sake of bringing people together. Bless him for his good fortune.
That picture of Matisyahu is hilarious!!
Did he hit the ball with the bat or the beard?
We may never know and I’ll never care. Good stuff.
