Reviews:

''Youth'' is an album by American Hasidic Jewish reggae singer Matisyahu, which was released on March 7, 2006. It is his second proper studio release, as ''Live at Stubb's'' is a live album. The CD quickly shot to the top of iTunes best sellers list the day it was released (partially because iTunes ran a special promotion for pre-orders).

The first single from the album is "King without a Crown", which was also appeared on Matisyahu's previous album, ''Live at Stubb's''. However, a different music video was shot for the ''Youth'' version of the song, whereas the version on the ''Stubb's'' concert album was accompanied by a concert video. The album debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 with over 119,000 copies sold in its first week released. A month later, the album was certified gold by the RIAA. As of September 24, 2008 the album has sold approximately 585,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen Soundscan.On December 27, 2006, Billboard announced that ''Youth'' ranked 3rd overall on the 2006 Reggae album charts, immediately behind ''Live at Stubb's''.

The topic of the album is mostly the support and promotion of youth voice, more explicitly in the eponymous second track. The album, along with its topic, mixes Matisyahu's lyrics, which contain several references to his Jewish beliefs, with a mainstream sound. - Wikipedia

Finally, that phat Hasidic flow we've all been pining for hath been spit. After building up weird buzz via his Live at Stubb's disc and P.O.D. cameo, New York's Matisyahu finally has the chance to blow up all proper like, studio-style. Expect socially conscious reggae and hooks galore.
