I am a big fan of Youssou N'Dour, and I think this is still his best CD. All of the songs are enjoyable; there are no "throwaways" on this one! The songs range from the quiet string-backed "Xale," to the frenetic "Alboury," and all of them serve up Youssou's soaring voice at its best. Most of the lyrics are in Wolof, but quite a few are in English, and are well done. My favorites include "Set," "Feenene," and especially, "Toxiques."
One more great thing about this CD: it sounds great! If you have a good sound system, especially with great bass response (with a subwoofer for example,) you'll love the sound of this CD. In fact, I think its a great CD to bring with you when shopping for any level of sound system.
