how to destroy a great voice,

This review is from: Foretold In The Language Of Dreams (Audio CD)
i bought this album after a friend let me hear one track from it - the final track. i thought it was fantastic. incredible voice which is not tainted by the usual crap beats & horrible synth presets. to my horror the rest of this record is laden with the aforementioned nonsense. there are even sampled vocal cut ups that are frankly disgraceful.these guys just dont do NA justice.NA would be better served working with underground electronica musicians like markus popp & fennesz, etc. its the usual problem when you get a fantastic eastern voice and throw it to hopeless western producers that are intent on giving it the BIG production and in doing so they completely destroy the record to the point that it sounds like some rubbish like enigma.this music should be the most soulful in the world - its really so sad.
if you took all the synths, beats & samples out and only kept in traditional instruments along with the voice this album would be 5 stars.
