Does not live upto expectations,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ha! (Audio CD)
This was a good record, but definitely not as rousing as OK, which was absolutely amazing in its ability to fuse so many musical elements, while still being cool. Ha does have very cool tracks, most notable 'The Beat goes down', which is the best dance groove on there. Talvin has given a more indian sound to this record, and has ended up sounding a little like Nitin Sawhney, not that I have anything against Nitin Sawhney, but I always thought Talvin Singh had managed to trascend the traditional indian stylings of neo indian dance music. Hopefully, he puts out more albums with more tracks like 'The Beat goes down' because that's what I see as cool Talvin: eclectic blend of dance, urban beats, vocals, culture blends, etc.
