Great Hosannah is such an incredible introduction to the album that from the first few seconds you know it's going to be a good one! You are, thus, totally absorbed from beginning to end, travelling through the north of India, experimenting with instruments and voice, capturing the essence of music and life.
The rhythm of Radhe Radhe is totally incredible, with the voice of Ghouri (who you may recall also featured in Govinda) and also the mystical quartet entwining the fantastic sounds!
I'm Still Here is just amazing - Crispian and his guitar producing a very reflective, meaningful and very beautiful song!
Timeworm, I believe, is the track which takes Peasants and Pigs to the top - it is an outstanding use of loops and atmosphere which engulfs your mind totally. Only Kula Shaker have been the band of the 90's who could ever had made it this far. This album and its tracks are so much above the rest of the "competition" surrounding it that it deserved so much more than it ever received. I was broken to find that the NME reviewed this LP and gave it 6/10. In my book, it was off the scale.
FANTASTIC, EXELLENT, BRILLIANT : MUSIC!
Namami Nanda Nandunan just takes you off at the end to a traquile place with a trickling stream and a sea of colour which emerges with the harmony and gentleness of the final track.
Peasants Pigs and Astronauts truly is a remarkable piece of musicianship. It should have a very high place in any music loves record collection! It certainly is at the top of mine!
Kula Shakers style was very unique and it is a shame that they split up before we were treated to more of their excellent music.
