Biography

After countless forays into the western world, Youssou N'Dour chose Dakar as a base from which to lead his geopolitical campaign in music. His strategy is pan-African: "What all of us Africans share is much more important than what we don't share," says this elegant, fifty-year old youngster, who grew up in the Medina in Senegal's capital city, Dakar.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have to pick one..this is it 16 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have nearly all of his realeases and this is certainly the best, the intricate rhythms and rich variety of percussion mixed in with traditional electric/acoustic guitar, synth, sax and bass are amazing and his unique vocals are at their very best. If you've heard and liked any African music you will not be disappointed with this - there's nothing too strange for the Western ear. A long album and not a duff track amongst them.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential Afropop choice 5 Aug 2001
By mskenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! 21 Dec 1999
By Y.T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was hooked on Youssou's music since I listened to this album. I was amazed at his vocal abilities and that his voice is perfect for the music. I love the way drums are used in the songs especially the talking drum (Tama) which appears frequently. He creates a wonderful variety of songs. Each of the song is distinct from others in rhythm and theme. Slow songs relaxes me after some fervent dancing with tracks like "Set" which is the best dance music I have ever heard. It is unlike anything that's around in the west. The drums moves the body! 13 tracks and 49 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't sit still! 24 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Youssou's voice is incredible, whether he sings fast or slow. You can recognise his voice after one word of singing; he's unique! Rhythm is great, good dance music. I also appreciate his other cd's very much, especially "Immigrés".

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Band 26 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the reviewer's comment; this is a Youssou N'Dour album without so much of the "sweetening" added for so-called "Westerners," even though the latter are great albums for their purpose. On the other hand, those who appreciate Youssou's "Set" should definitely check out the Lemzo Diamono Group's CD, "Marimbalax" (see my review) or one of the classic albums by the legendary Senegalese band "Xalam." Welcome to urban Africa!
