4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful World Music 2 Mar 2005
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This multitextured album incorporates world, trance and dub styles into a very cohesive and enjoyable mix. A rich array of singers from different traditions and an innovative instrumental mix ensure plenty of variety.
The first two tracks are mellow mid-tempo numbers with lovely vocal arrangements. Sung partly in Spanish by Ximena Tascon, Whisky Priests has a Latin American rhythm and great guitars. North Africa is next, with the track I'm An Algerian sung by Abel Ali Slimani and then it's Latin again with Amor and then Jamaican with some ragga style vocals by Chaka Demus on Amor Dub.
The title track is a mix of soul and Middle Eastern, whilst the buoyant The Sun Does Rise is a beautiful anthemic pop ballad. If it weren't, this song should have been a hit. When The Storm Comes is a jazzy ballad whilst I Love Everybody is a stream of consciousness poem with a spiritual message. A highlight of the album, Yoga Of The Nightclub is an atmospheric trance number with a hypnotic beat and innovative vocal arrangements.
The interesting sonic mix of Angels includes Baaba Maal on vocals and Massamba Diop on talking drum for an African ambience whilst the next track Raga takes the listener to India, with vocals by Najma Akhtar. The album concludes with Forever, a tuneful pop ballad. The impressive stylistic scope and a high proportion of melodious songs make this album a pleasurable listening experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please buy this record 12 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
This record has been a longtime favourite of mine ever since it came out and, in addition to providing hours of pleasure, has cost me a lot of money over the years. Without listening to Take Me To God, I doubt I would ever have discovered the music of Natacha Atlas, through her, Transglobal Underground, and through them a whole host of Arabic and North African music. But, that is just one strand of the cultural and musical influences Wobble covers over the course of seventeen superb songs. You deserve to own this wonderfully diverse and satisfying record, so buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it While You Can 27 May 2004
By Jamo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A modern masterpiece. Lush, worldly, boldly sensual and spiritual without self consciousness or guile. If you have an iota of groove in you, you must have this. Order now! I wore out my first copy and am moving through my second. Everyone I recommend it to loves it and buys other JW stuff. If you are a bass player it will shake you to your foundation in a very good way. What can I say? The guy is criminally underappreciated, but you can do your part to make him the superstar he should be. Funky? You bet. World? Absolutely. Genius? Undoubtedly. You will thank your God JW is on the same planet. You will become closer to God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite taken 4 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Jah Wobble's most accessible album. But that said, it's far from being mainstream, it's too complex, too beautiful. No song is like one other, the music changes, language, singers, rhythm, mood, prose, everything changes - akin to the Red Queen who runs to stay in place, JW moves about building a solid, lasting masterpiece, which yet remains elusive, fluent in all tongues, an abode of the restless. In the first sentence of "Hundred Years of Solitude" Gabriel Garcia Marquez depicts a man facing execution while remembering a certain occasion when he was a little boy. The lyrics of "I love everybody", exclaimed with a ranting and callous voice, are similarly cruel but upraising, touching life and beyond. "Becoming more like God" is one of the strangest songs I've ever heard - Pop meets/becomes God, a hymn for a church yet to be founded. If you think this seems all too weird, and who is Jah Wobble anyway? don't be put off - the music is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightened Pop Music. 27 Jun 2005
By Joseph P. Ulibas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Take Me to God was a disc that Jah Wobble and his Invaders of the Heart produced during the mid-90s'. The disc even had a minor hit "The Sun Does Rise". The disc is an enlightened masterpiece from Jah Wobble. The Invaders of the Heart take you on the trip around the world showing it's listener that everywhere music is just a simple beat and we call all become more like god each in their own way. Mere words cannot do this album justice. Jah Wobble has gone through a lot of trials and tribulations over the years. It's great to see him become enlightened and continue to make great albums. I hope someday we can all become one with the world and musically intune.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A WORLDBEAT TOUR-DE-FORCE 8 Nov 2006
By John J. Toutant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Taking a leap of faith, I bought a used copy of this CD on Amazon for about three dollars. Back in the 80's I was familiar with PiL, The Police, UB40, and other dub-influenced bands, and I've always enjoyed "world music" (whatever your definition of that is!), so I said "What the heck!", and hit that "Buy With 1 Click" button. When the CD arrived, I wasn't sure what to expect....

I now realize that I have been richly rewarded for my efforts. With his guest musicians, Jah Wobble has transported me on a funky, rhythmic, and hypnotic magic carpet ride around the globe. This CD glides musically from Latin America (Whisky Priests, featuring Ximena Tascon's smoky Spanish vocals) to North Africa (I'm An Algerian, with Abdel Ali Slimani's evocative Arabic vocals) to the British Isles (with the unmistakable keening voice of Dolores O'Riordan, from The Cranberries), and beyond.

This CD will round out any music collection. And do the artists a favor: buy a brand new copy. I will, after I wear this one out. Real soon.
