I don't usually review music on here, but couldn't help but notice how negative and completely wasted the other reviews are on here.
I saw the Red Baraat live a few years back and couldn't help but go home with this CD!
In short it is funky, fresh, and exciting. Now, I've yet to be able to hook my pop-pumping Justin Bieber fan friends (yes, I know, although I would love to disown them for being Beiberbabies I still admire them for their, well mostly for their cooking and willingness to drive me places. In fact when I get a car . . . )that this is the album for them, but it stands alone in its own genre.
Get it: if you appreciate Indian fusion music. Skip it: if your simplistic mind can only comprehend completely repetitive beats in 4/4 time and simplistic lyrics that lack substance.
