The Tokyo Trawler’s Essential Review:
A song that few people can claim* never to have heard, but with a glance* at the lyrics alone, one that is an inspiration. Despite the fact that it's littered* with numerous biblical* references* (As it was in the beginning/So shall it be in the end), the message of One Love doesn't require any rocket science qualifications to decipher*, and as such has universal* and enduring* appeal. Marley sets his stall out in the intro with a combination of effortlessness* and esprit*, before diving almost immediately into the chorus, and wrapping* it all up in under 3 minutes. Something so short packs a whole lotta greatness in it, though.
