5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting 1 Dec 2013
By Glenn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I think this might be the most beautiful album of 2013; it is certainly the most beautiful jazz album I have heard this year. Dhafer Youseff plays the oud, though this isn't the predominant instrument throughout the 11 tracks, and the accompanying band, especially Nils Petter Molvaer on trumpet, Husnu Senlendirici on clarinet, and Krisjan Randalu on piano, provide the layers of majestic music that wrap the occasional oud playing in a deeply soothing to soaring journey. The most astonishing and exquisite sound is Youseff's vocal, a sonic falsetto that mesmerises to absolute aural contentment. I don't know if it is supported in any way, or wholly natural, but what I do know is it is sublime. When the clarinet and voice combine at their beautifully piercing pitch, it is aurally uplifting.

This is simply one of the most beautiful albums I have ever heard. His voice in and range is amazing. Repeat playings only confirm ones first opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece 24 Nov 2013
By NedK
Format:Audio CD
"Birds Requiem" is, sort of, a return of Dhafer Youssef to his musical roots. That is, the feeling of the music is somewhat as his earliest work, bit it feels new nonetheless. The music is full of emotions and it feels stripped down; there are not too many electronics or effects, which is no loss, because the music is very much alive. Lastly, Youssef's voice is still strong and can cope with the high notes, despite the fact that he is not a young man anymore. "Birds Requiem" is an impressive piece of work.
