When talking about best roots albums ever,
should not forget Max Romeo & The Upsetters - War ina Babylon,
Another Lee Perry production, essential to any reggae collection.

…War ina Babylon is something of a mountain on the reggae landscape.
But what makes it so remarkable is not just the consistently high quality of the music – indeed,
by 1976 one had come to expect nothing but the finest and heaviest grooves from Perry and his studio band, the Upsetters
– rather, it's the fact that Max Romeo had proved to be such a convincing singer of cultural (or ''conscious'')
reggae after several years of raking it in as a purveyor of the most abject slackness.
(His ''Wet Dream'' had been a huge hit in England several years earlier,
and had been followed by such other delicacies as ''Wine Her Goosie'' and ''Pussy Watch Man.'')
But there's no denying the authority of his admonishing voice here,
and the title track (which describes the violent mood during Jamaica's 1972 general election) has remained a standard for decades.
Other highlights include ''One Step Forward'', ''Smile out a Style'' and ''Chase the Devil''.
Essential to any reggae collection.

The classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy is updated by director Baz Luhrmann to a post-modern Verona Beach where swords are merely a brand of gun and bored youths are easily spurred toward violence. Longtime rivals in religion and business, the Montagues and the Capulets share a page from the Jets and Sharks of West Side Story when they form rival gangs. Romeo (Leonardo DiCaprio) is aloof toward the goings-on of his Montague cousins, but after he realizes that Juliet (Claire Danes) is a Capulet at the end of one very wild party, the enmity between the two clans becomes the root of his angst. He relies heavily – and with serious consequences – on his rebel gender-bender of a friend, Mercutio (Harold Perrineau Jr.), and Father (not Friar) Lawrence (Pete Postlethwaite) for protection and support. Romeo is, of course, exiled, and it looks like Juliet will be forced into an arranged marriage with the bland Paris (Paul Rudd). It ends, as Romeo and Juliet must, when Romeo hears a tragic piece of misinformation and brings his suicide wish to what was meant to be Juliet 's temporary tomb.

This 2008 live recording with the London Symphony Orchestra is Valery Gergiev's 2nd complete recording of Prokofiev's ballet Romeo & Juliet, the 1st being a 1991 Philips release with the Kirov Orchestra. This performance, like his 1st, is notable for its refinement & lyricism. It's perhaps surprising that Gergiev, known for the wildness & ferocity of his performances of other Prokofiev works, like The Fiery Angel, shows such restraint here. Gergiev clearly understands the ballet as a work in which Prokofiev, writing originally for the Bolshoi, a theater known for its conservatism (although that production was canceled), tailored his score to follow in the tradition of the 3 great Tchaikovsky ballets.
