|Burning Spear chronology|
It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album at the 27th Grammy Awards in 1985. Resistance, Spear's first release for Heartbeat, is regarded as one of Burning Spear's most solid albums, and reflects the atmospheric sound that defined Spear in the early eighties. This sound is also reflected in the albums Fittest of the Fittest and Farover, both of which were released on EMI. Burning Spear would venture into more modern, electric driven rhythms on his follow-up release People of the World, released on Slash Records.
