5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. The Best 22 Feb 2000
Format:Audio CD
This has been my favourite for a couple of months now with no sign of fatigue. It is dancey, varied, soulful and tuneful in the extreme. My favourites are Ki Kounti and Aicha (which happens to be my name :) ) Khaled is a shining star in world music and his use of tunes and songs from all over the planet makes him an example of fusion at its best. Buy it! You will love it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars eclectic and electric 7 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
There is a subtle jazzy sound to this CD when compared to some of Khaled's other releases, as well as a mix of styles, but this master of the rai genre excels at them all. Some superb musicians are included, and I especially like "Detni Essekra", which reminds me of a tango, with its emphasis on piano (Boyan Zulfikapasic), stringbass (Bernard Paganotti) and accordion (Philippe Eidel).
"Ki Kounti" is another gem; recorded in Los Angeles, it is a duet with Saul Hernandez, composer and lead singer for Mexico's well known rock band Jaguares, and is sung partially in Spanish.
Three tracks were recorded in Jamaica, and have a marvelous bouncy reggae feel to them: "Lillah" has a terrific brass accompaniment, "Ouelli El Darek" nifty background vocals by the "I Threes", and "Mektoubi" is an all-out big band number.
My two favorites would be "Wahrane Wahrane", which like a traditional Arabic pop song has a string arrangement similar to what one would have heard backing the classic Egyptian singers of a generation ago, and the final track, "Hey Ouedi", with its mystical quality, is quite thrilling, with instruments seeming to imitate the sound of ululation.
"Oran Marseille" with rap group IAM, only works half-way for me (I like the Khaled parts and the instrumentation), but perhaps that is because I do not care for rap music. "Aisha" is a signature song for Khaled, and always great to hear.
Khaled is a pioneer of rai music, and his title of "King of Rai" is well deserved; with his gritty expressive voice, he has brought this music to every corner of the earth. Also recommended is his CD "Kutche", and the live performance album with Faudel and Rachid Taha, "1, 2, 3 Soleils".
Khaled co-wrote all the songs except "Hey Ouedi", which he wrote alone, the sound is excellent, the insert foldout has recording info but no liner notes or lyrics, and total time is 51'51.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you want to dance across the desert 7 Jan 2000
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic. What a voice and what a rhythmn! His music is so easy to listen to , so easy to move to. If you want to get a good feel for North African pop music you cannot do better than this. His songs are infectious and will stir your heart, your soul and your dancing shoes. Buy it and play it, again and again

5.0 out of 5 stars probably the best album ever made... 30 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've lived with this album for about 5 years, we've had fallings out, we've ignored each other, and I've always come back to it. Aicha is probably the best single anyone has ever released, the Shurik'N rap segment blows me away every time I hear it (still) in fact I bought his back catalogue as well as that of his usual group IAM on the strength of it...
Khaled, unparalled talent, whether you are Francophone or not the sheer quality of the music should strike you, or are you Anglophone only dead from the ears inwards?
You really need this in your life. Trust me.
