4.0 out of 5 stars Good to see it making it in the West! 2 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
First off, the blurb above isn't exactly right. This is not his second album - he has been churning them out on tapes since the mid-ninties in Syria - it's just the second one that you can get on CD and in the west. It's quite important because this guy, and the people who write most of his material, have been plying their trade for quite a while and come up with some spectacular tunes.

Another small moan: he is a massive star in Syria, so whilst the description above makes him sound a little crazy, there is actually a whole load of great stuff (and very similar too) that has yet too make it over here. Go to Damascus, get in a run down taxi and get your driver to crack on the tunes.

If you can't do that though, then get this album for some absolutely banging tracks. If you've ever heard any modern Middle Eastern or Turkish music, you should be familiar with the drum beat that pops up in almost every song. If 4:4 is what the west does best, then the middle east does a syncopated 2:4. Screeching keyboards with some top quality casio effects from 1992, a man singing who smokes not a few tabs, production that is brilliantly heavy handed and an overall feel of chaos on most of the tracks - this is the kind of genius that Syria is all about.

Good fun, ridiculous and genius all at once. A must own for all intrepid beat crafters and casio keyboard fanatics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy and I love it! 2 Mar 2013
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Like many of us over here in the West I first heard of Omar Souleyman after hearing his work on Bjork's Bastards album. which I loved. Following a Google and Amazon search I found this album and took a chance on downloading it. I am SO glad that I did!

What's it like....?

Imagine a TR808 80's drum machine pulsing away at top speed, various percussive synth sounds crudely overlayed on top, a man bellowing in Arabic seemingly at random and the with whole lot cranked up in volume to the very point where it starts to clip and distort. On yes, Bagpipes, I forgot the bagpipes.

This is a great album and I just love it.

Mediocre compilation his best work only audible in the last song. Not a bad album, but far from what he's about.
