5.0 out of 5 stars Anutha Zone - a review, 17 May 2005
This review is from: Anutha Zone (Audio CD)
This album is on Anutha planet ! Quite easily the best of Dr Johns's lengthy and varied career and make no mistake.Probably the least commercial of his most recent albums as he fuses elements of R&B,Soul,Funk,Gospel,World music and along with his own trademark gravelly sounding vocals into an album that defies categorisation.
"I like Ki Yoka" has world music influences with it's African backing vocals and percussion, "Sweet home New Orleans" is probably the most heart felt & loving tribute to Dr John's home town as you'll ever hear,"Party hellfire" is worth a carefull lisen to the humourus vocals delivered in that trademrk rasping voice,"Ki Ya Gris Gris" and "John Gris" are heavily voodoo/gospel tinged and just to show that he does have a gentle side "I don't wanna know" is delivered with tenderness and warmth that goes against the grain of the album but is wellcome nevertheless.
What sets this apart from a lot of Dr John's other albums is that there is a consistent African/Voodoo/Religious/World music feel about the whole thing which i can't recall being conceived by anybody prior to this album.
Highly recommended.
