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.

I allways look forward to a Nitin Sawhney album , I've seen this genius live and his post Beyond Skin albums are the most appealing, to me . After the masterpieces Beyond Skin and prophesy, Human left me uncertain of Sawhney's direction. For Philtre Nitin Sawhney is back to the diversity of his cocktail of Asian flava's, latin,flamenco, drum and base, electronica,housy soul with a variety of guests. The tempoe for Philtre is down beat dark yet refreshing, the vocals superb , there's still Sawhney's sidekick Tina Grace singing on tracks .Philtre is a continuation of the enchanting chilled out experience of Nitin Sawhney, as he ventures in to newer directions. My only complaint is why it's taken me so long to discover Philtre. And also How can such an outstanding collection have been passed by as it's as good as Beyond Skin and Prophesy!
