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.

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.
