Like the other reviewers here, I have to say that this album is a knock-out! Listen to loud, or play quiet, it seems somehow to change to suit any mood. The range of instruments and styles cross so many boundaries that lables become inappropriate. This is, to my humble opinion, the guiding ethos of this album - and of Nitin's other works too. I have been a fan since finding a cassette of 'Spirit Dance' (his debut) in a remainers bin at HMV in 1995 (best £1.99 ever spent). At the current asking price here - you really should buy it NOW! It will be the best present for starting the year you could give yourself - or anyone! This album works on any number of levels - some great tunes, dance-able grooves, and a deeply heartfelt message about the future "beyond politics, beyond nationality, beyond religion and Beyond Skin." Beyond doubt, this is an exceptional album.
