'Legend' remains the best selling reggae album of all time going ten times Platinum in the U.S., and selling 25 million copies worldwide.  This popular album was ranked number 46 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

'Marley said, "You must be inside of it, know what's happening, and why you want to play this music. You don't just run go play this music because you think you can make a million off it." Ironically, this set of the late reggae idol's greatest hits has sold in the millions. It is also a comprehensive, single-disc example of the universal soul he brought to Jamaican rhythm and Rastafarian spirituality, in the gunfighter ballad "I Shot the Sheriff," the comforting swing of "No Woman, No Cry" and the holy promise of "Redemption Song." Since its release, Legend has been, for many people, their first exposure to Marley, and to reggae in general. It is a superlative beginning - but only the tip of his genius.' Rolling Stone

'The classic Marley album, the one that any fair-weather reggae fan owns, Legend contains his greatest songs, running the gamut from "I Shot the Sheriff" to the meditative "Redemption Song" and the irrepressible "Three Little Birds." Some may argue that the compilation shortchanges his groundbreaking early ska work or his status as a political commentator, but this isn't meant to be definitive, it's meant to be an introduction, sampling the very best of his work. And it does that remarkably well, offering all of his genre-defying greats and an illustration of his excellence, warmth, and humanity. In a way, it is perfect since it gives a doubter or casual fan anything they could want. Let's face it, the beauty and simplicity of Marley's music was as important as his message, and that's captured particularly well here.' 5 stars AllMusic.com
