In December , Jamaica was going through elections, generating substantial political discourse. The song became a No. On 3 December , while he was in his house in Jamaica , an assassination attempt on Marley's life drove him out of his native country: the day after the assassination attempt, Marley fled to England where he recorded the song "Exodus". In addition to Marley's assassination attempt, "his wife Rita — one of the I Threes , whose singing on Exodus is first-rate"  was also shot and survived.
The song " Exodus " became a No. Exodus is a reggae album   which features a "laid-back" production, that contains a "stoned atmosphere that's simultaneously funky and political" according to Cam, an Emeritus from Sputnikmusic. Cam described the album's musical style as being "different," noting that Marley's style of reggae was not what was prominent in Jamaica during the time, and that the album's music sounds unlike any reggae that came before its release.
Exodus contains elements of pulsating bass beats, pianos and funk along with a "liquid-y bass," drumming and guitars with the inclusion of trumpets in the title track. Vocally, Marley provides a minimalist approach, trying not to reach his falsettos.
The album's track listing is split over two halves,  the first half features songs of religious politics and opens with Natural Mystic which is a slow tempo "fade up" song, followed by "So Much Things To Say" which was described by the BBC as being "exuberant" and features a reggae-scat. Cam from Sputnikmusic gave the album five out of five stars, calling it a "classic". Emeritus praised the album's "laid-back tones" and commended Marley's vocals and lyrical content.

A second generation compact disc remastered by Barry Diament appeared in on the Tuff Gong label. Although the disc includes the same 14 songs, the tracks are in their original album lengths rather than the edited versions for single release.

In , Legend was made available as downloadable content for Rock Band. Legend holds the distinction of being the second longest-charting album in the history of Billboard magazine. Combining its chart life on the Billboard and the Top Pop Catalog Albums charts, Legend has had a chart run of non-consecutive weeks,  surpassed only by The Dark Side of the Moon at weeks. As of December , the album has sold The RIAA has certified Legend for selling 15 million copies, a total that includes purchases before As of December , the album has sold more than 33 million copies worldwide.
Despite its generally positive reception, Legend has been criticized for being a deliberately inoffensive selection of Marley's less political music, shorn of any radicalism that might damage sales. Island Records had viewed Marley as a political revolutionary, and Robinson saw this perspective as damaging to Marley's bottom line. So he constructed a greatest-hits album that showed just one face of the Marley prism, the side he deemed most sellable to the suburbs.
The definitive album of the most important reggae singer of all time is a hodgepodge collection of love songs, feel-good sentiment, and mere hints of the fiery activist whose politics drew bullets in the '70s. International pressings substituted the remixes for either album versions or 7" edits.
Two versions of the CD were released in Europe in ; one used the same mastering as the US pressing, the other mastered by Rob Fabroni and Barry Diament used original full length versions for all the tracks.
