But in spite of all that, Gone Are the Days is an extremely likable set of conscious, uplifting music, pure in its intentions and occasionally rising to thrilling in its delivery. Like a million other roots singers before him, Israel, a Christian-born Arkansan turned Rasta, praises Jah, pines for truth, righteousness, unity, justice, and a lot more love, and turns often for his imagery and lyrical direction to the Bible - and even more often to common respect, decency, and brotherhood

Joseph Israel's debut album manages to combine the religious tenets of Rastafarianism with a decidedly political stance, to produce a sound that neither trivializes the religion nor separates it from the harsh realities that gave rise to reggae in the first place. Gone Are the Days, initially released by Israel independently in 2005 under the Lions of Israel label, proclaims that the need to live alternatively is brought home by the political systems that conspire to keep the people down. The negative forces of government, police and politicians to which Israel refers throughout the album coalesce in the term "Babylon," the biblical site of Hebrew bondage that was appropriated by Rastafarians to refer to Jamaica and its institutions of oppression.
While its lyrics are of headline-torn news reports and a call for spiritual awakening, the album's sound itself was influenced by session collaborators Earl "Chinna" Smith, Dean Fraser, and Uziah Thompson
