AllMusic

Marley would continue to achieve great critical and commercial success during the 1970s, but Catch a Fire is one of the finest reggae albums ever. This album is essential for any music collection.

Rolling Stone
With stalwart bassist Aston "Family Man" Barrett and drummer Carlton Barrett pumping out incendiary "riddims" behind the Wailers' smoky harmonies, Catch a Fire is a blazing debut.

Um ótimo álbum, um reggae agradável e relaxante para ouvir, ótima performance vocal e uma boa produção. Destaque para "Baby We've Got A Date (Rock It Baby" e "Stir It Up".

This is a career high - pun very much intended.

Since Chris Blackwell gave advance for an album (and paid their fares back home), The Wailers returned with the inflammable tapes, which, under Chris' final supervision, are set to catch a fire wherever they will be played.

This stuff is good. Best song is Concrete Jungle.

‘Catch a Fire’ was somewhat of a snoozefest.

Music your Dad listens to while on vacation in Punta Cana.

FAVORITE TRACKS: CONCRETE JUNGLE, KINKY REGGAE, NO MORE TROUBLE.
