Be prepared for a world tour of music! The latest album from Nitin Sawhney is as eclectic as ever. He manages to overlay an array of genres to compile an exciting compilation that is surely his best so far. Each track offered is better than the last. If you are a fan of Nitin Sawhney and his amazing entourage then this album is for you. Its hard to see how this can be bettered. My only criticism that a few of the tracks are too short leaving the listener for more. Go and buy!

Im SO excited about this album...I know people will be all 'up in arms,'about this but I wasnt to keen on Nitin's last album Human. My fav's would have to be Beyond Skin and then Prophesy but that said Human saw Nitin delving into new areas. The great thing about this album is that he has merged the new style from Human and the best qualities of all his previous albums. For those of you who are Nitin Sawhney virgins all I can say is that you need to get a clue about this guy he has an amazing back catalougue of work...he's even better in concert (cant wait till the 4th...hes playing at Shep's Bush empire 3rd/4th May) coupled with that this album is something else. It has a strong eastern/asian influence with an ounce of nu-soul, jazzy r'n'b with the hip moving beats of South America. This album (if you really appreciate good music) will evoke emotions and feelings that can only be described as that feeling you get when sat outside on a warm summers day where the breeze is the only thing that brings you back to reality from the imaginery world you drift of to when taking in the sun and forgetting about all your worries. (sorry I know that was REALLY corny but listen to it and you'll know what I mean)

this is my second Nitin CD having started with Prophecy back in 2001 which I received courtesy of Pete Waddingham at V2 Records A&R and played a lot on my local radio stations...it's truly lamentable that I didn't get any of his other work until now, 6 years later. This is a different album indeed to Prophecy and a wealth again of guest vocalists. I was transported back to my fave New Orleans by the snappy blues intro to Dead Man then smiley and amazed at the smooth switch to eastern indian vocals and themes within a 'blues' track.. a classic example of the blending of genres which Nitin presents so well. This is followed up by the recited raga like Rag Doll then launches into the wonderful swirl of indian faux 'celtic' orchestrations of Mausam, reminiscent of Loreena McKennit and on and on with delights after delight.. a superb album - less harsh and socially critical than Prophesy but an intensely rewarding listen, especially for an eastern souled person like me. I wish I could play the sitar better than I do at times like this. The rest is pure Nitin magic.

Nitin Sawhney has always been one of those very interesting artists who is always looking to experiment with new styles of music, sounds and instruments. On "Philtre", his 7th studio album, he experiments with the darker side of Trip-Hop and R&B whilst still retaining the Indian influences and manages to create yet again another superb album.

"Everything" is a magical slice of Trip-Hop with dark beats, arrangements and intriguing vocals making it an instant highlight. "Spark" lends itself to Trip-Hop once again but is much more atmospheric and laid back. "Dead Man" blends Hip-Hop beats with Blues inspired arrangements, elements of Rap and Indian vocals to create a very original sounding song. "Mausam" is a much more uplifting song with sweet Indian vocals and arrangements, a gentle rhythm and a overall stronger Pop vibe and is the second highlight on this album. "Journey" is a mesmerising Jazz influenced R&B flavoured track with Jungle beats that kick in towards the middle of the song. There is indeed a lot of diversity on "Philtre" - "Void" is a short track with breathy vocal harmonies and flute improvisations, "Koyal" blends heavy R&B/Hip-Hop beats with Indian singing and sounds whilst the two following tracks "Noches En Vela (Part 1 & Part 2)" focus on Spanish vocal arrangements and Flamenco style guitar playing. All of these tracks are great in their own way, but my favorite creation on here is the following track "Throw" which is a very beautiful R&B track with an infectious chorus. "Flipside" is a Funk inspired catchy song, "Footprints" is another effective upbeat Spanish inspired song and "The Search" another rhythmic Indian creation with heavy Jungle beats. The final short track "Sanctuary" is a calm instrumental ending the album on a peaceful zen note.
