Format: Audio CD
This girl is superb, unique and reminds me of India Irie and Bob Marley together. She is not like any of them because she is unique in her own right but she writes soulful, meaningful songs that touches your soul not just LOVE LOVE and senseless music we listen to nowadays that does not add any value to our lifes but lust and filt.

This is music and I think everyone should buy this album. It is highly recommended. Check out Fire on the Mountain talking about the problems in Africa especially the Niger Delta problem of Oil exploration in Nigeria.

Kudos Asa.

I have listened to a lot of soul singer and I think that this one take's the cake!
I got the album as a present from by brother on by way back to England, and I think it's the best thing to come out of Nigeria with regards to music.
My friends here are loving all the songs on the album my favourite one is called- When I'm crying (writing in Yoruba on the album)

When I first heard "Fire on the Mountain", on radio, I was totally wowed at Asa's husky voice and the lyrical completeness of the track (she is both songwriter and singer) I went ahead to buy the CD, expecting that this would be (as usual)the "one hit wonder" in the midst of a lot of junk.

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that ALL the tracks are as lyrically and musically complete as "Fire on the Mountain", which by the way is no longer my favourite... after listening to the others.

Asa manages to create a universally appealing style slightly reminiscent of Tracy Chapman (but unique enough to be particularly memorable) in her English language tracks "Jailer" and "Fire on the Mountain", nostalgic in the traditional Yoruba highlife (as in "Eye Adaba"), and powerfully evocative in her own special ingenious mix as in "Bibanke" "Subway" and "So beautiful"

The album is varied enough not to be boring, and yet consistent enough to be uniquely Asa.

I'm also impressed by the fact that this was produced in Nigeria, though recorded in France - a thumbs up for Cobhams Asuquo here.

I absolutely love this album. Would recommend it to anyone who love soul music, of african origin also. She uses authentic yoruba too, quite touching Lyrics- quite deep and metaphoric. We want more, Asa! proud to be African and Yoruba!

I have previously heard a couple of singles from this debut album, as it has been having airplay on the radio stations for some time. I actually went looking for the artist when I heard "Eye Adaba (The dove)" sometime early last year with no luck. I was surfing on satellite TV when I saw Asha on Euronews "Le Mag" program and that she was an opening act in France this weekend. I went to my CD store and was told she came out with the album 3 weeks previous. I picked up 2 immediately, intending one as a present. I like most of the tracks with "No one knows", Bibanke and Iba being my favorites now. My kids are also falling in love with it. I see a bit of India.Arie, Tracy Chapman and othe "non-conformist" styles, with a unique overprint of her Africaness within all the tracks. Like my daughter said "her music makes a lot of sense (she's 10 years old). I wish Asha all the best, and I am going to buy a few more copies as gifts to others.

Anyone who is reading this.......BUY THE RECORD!! it's fantastic, I heard it once and the songs just stick to your head, they get under your skin...they are beautiful, especially Eye Adaba and Bi banke (ok, I am Yoruba so I am biased!).

Definitely worth buying.

Asa is an excellent singer, she brings it all together perfectly!

I hope she comes to the UK soon!

I bought Asa's album on my last trip to Nigeria merely by chance; the album was recommended to me by the guy selling the CDs.

This album R-O-C-K-S!!!!! I've been playing it everyday ever since; even my 2-year old daughter knows some of the lyrics.

Asa's music is Soulful, with Lyrics that get you deep in thought.
I would love to play with her one day.
