5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect background to the perfect foreground, 22 Oct 2001
This review is from: Back to Mine - Talvin Singh (Audio CD)
I discovered Nitin Sawney by accident, and Badmarsh & Sri on GLR with Imran Khan one memorable Saturday evening. So I've got a bit of an Eastern love affair thang going on, I'll admit. Talvin Singh however, has got to be the master, as I discovered before getting my sticky mitts on Back To Mine. He melds ambient drum and bass with authentic eastern dubs and creates something wonderful. He demands no less in Back to Mine, creating a wonderful, listenable, any-timeable ambient CD for any company you may happen to be keeping. Unlike other great ambien CDs its also very listenable if you're on your own. It's light, subtle and intelligently put together. Plenty of variation but without the musical tensions between tracks which you get with some of the Back To Mines. If I suspend disbelief for a second I know that Talvin sat in his bedroom taping his fave tracks onto a cassette to give to his best mate. This is mood music at its best, and even if you've only flirted with the Eastern vibe, this cannot fail to be for you and at the very least it'll be a part of your collection that's uncontentious. Have no hesitation in buying it

4.0 out of 5 stars He's done it again!, 20 Oct 2001
This review is from: Back to Mine - Talvin Singh (Audio CD)
Not only does Talvin Singh make amazing music, he listens to great stuff as well! Although this album isn't centred around the "culture" theme as much, there is loads to keep you occupied in this compilation. It is geared more towards the chillout side, but I believe that anyone who likes Talvin's work would like listening to this. A quality selection of top tracks: a must-have for any Talvin Singh enthusiat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to Talvin's? Yes please!, 4 Nov 2001
This review is from: Back to Mine - Talvin Singh (Audio CD)
This is the best in the series so far. Talvin has mixed a medley of mood enhancing music. The emphasis, not surprisingly, is on The East. However, that does not stop Talvin throwing in African legend Ali Farka Toure or a touch of Brazilian funk, courtesy of dZihan & Kamien. The album reaches a crescendo with the classic remix of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan whose vocals soar majestically. This album is Mustt, Mustt!

5.0 out of 5 stars sublime, 30 May 2011
This review is from: Back to Mine - Talvin Singh (Audio CD)
excuse me if the review is a bit random, but this cd just rocked. The tracks on this completation have lead me to further explore the sounds that influence TS and the eastern music scene in general and i think thats what these cd's encourage you to do. You find tracks you like and tracks that you dont but they allow you to explore your musical tastes that little bit further and so enhance your knowledge.I love these cd's and this has got to be one of the best....If you are into them, then you will no doubt have this one, but if you havent get it....you wont have been let down by your purchase......who needs TV when we still have the accustic joy of musical masterminds such as Mr Singh

5.0 out of 5 stars repeat pleasure, 18 Sep 2007
This review is from: Back to Mine - Talvin Singh (Audio CD)
I have listened to this in many places and consistently enjoy the music, balance of one track to the next and quality of production. Only skip two tracks in centre. Must buy more of his work.
