This album is a work of art. It is the perfect blend of Middle Eastern (Persian) art music and Western influences. Axiom of Choice uses guitar, the quarter-tone guitar, kamancheh (spike fiddle), setar (lute), world percussion and cello and the amazing and deeply moving vocals of a female singer to create music that is very deep, soul-stirring and simply sublime. Check it out! You will love it!

This is band that I did not know but was introduced to on the radio. This is a very strong piece of work, excellent musicianship, superb vocals and a very unique sound. I hope they will come to the UK. Would love to hear them live!

Beautiful, impressive and totally original 31 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have followed Axiom of choice since they gave out their first recording "Beyond Denial". Niya Yesh is a huge leap from the first album which, although exciting and highly original, was nevertheless more raw. On this album, the band has come to a certain maturity. The instrumentation and musicianship is exquisite with a perfect balance of Middle Eastern Persian and Western instruments topped with nostalgic and expressive vocals. The album is very soulful and some songs bring tears to my eyes. Although it conveys a theme, it is still very diverse and well-balanced. The most important thing about it is that you can (you want to) listen to it over and over again.

Terrific! 4 Jan. 2001
By Richard Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I tend to shy away from world music out of fear the grooves will be a little too groovy, and the cultural appropriation infuriating, but if this is what I've been missing, I've been missing alot. I bought this from a friend's "wish list" and she lent it to me. I'm more than pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a trance attack, but instead have found each song to be rich, distinct, and involving. There are so many sounds at play on this CD. Flamenco, American folk, Persian, and ambient street noise beautifully blended. The raindrops on "Raindrops" sound too much like static, but other than that everything works. The vocals are gorgeous, instrumentation superb, and production (except for the above mentioned) near flawless. I don't know if I've become a convert to world music, but I am interested in their previous CD, "Beyond Denial."

An absolute must have! 18 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you like cross-cultural world music, then this CD is for you. Axiom of Choice really offers some of the best music in this style, blending their Persian roots with Indian and Western sounds, the result is magical and deeply-moving. If anything is soul music, this is it! I do not agree with the previous reviewer that the album was done with the new age crowd in mind. It certainly has many gentle moments, and it is definitely better produced than the previous album ("Beyond Denial") which I also love and which I purchased by accident a few years ago. But this recording is also more complete musically and more mature. I have been listening to it over and over and it has not lost one bit of its originality and freshness. I find it to be a work of great beauty and power and I recommend it highly.

Persian music with a contemporary flair 11 July 2000
By Brian Ziegler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While rooted in the tradition of Persian music, Axiom of Choice goes way beyond tradition with these compositions. However, I only gave this a 4-star rating because I think that their 1994 release titled "Beyond Denial" (pun intended) on the Xdot25 label is simply better. Like almost all Narada releases, Niya Yesh has superb sound and production. However, in some ways it seems like it is too lush, too smooth; sounding as though it has be produced and recorded with the New Age crowd in mind. Beyond Denial has more raw emotion and energy that I find present in the best of the middle eastern and Persian music. Nonetheless, Niya Yesh deserves listening.

Such a beautiful work! 7 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love Axiom of Choice's Niya Yesh. It really speaks to me. It has wonderful soulful vocals and lovely instrumentation, Persian lute, kemanche, guitar, cello, cane flute and great percussion. I also find it very original and unique, very fresh to the ears and evocative. It is a must for anyone who likes Middle Eastern music with a contemporary approach.
