Bravo! 'An Other Cup' by Yusuf Islam is a perfect example of an artist putting his/her ego and selfish ambitions aside long enough to reach out to mass audiences with a positive, uplifting message in uncertain times. These songs may not have quite the same vocal reach or dynamic guitar playing as those of Yusuf Islam's former stage persona, but they are all songs that do touch the heart and uplift the spirit in deep ways. Enough of the 'Welcome back, Cat' sentiment we've been seeing in the media -- we should be saying 'Welcome, Yusuf, to the new century', period. A voice and inspiration such as his are needed now more than ever, and this new work appears on the music scene not a moment too soon. A brilliant recording overall.
