Format: Audio CD
wow, a truly beautiful album. Over the course of 8 tracks we are treated to Yann Tambour's intricate and dazzling finger plucking of the accoustic guitar and kora (a north african stringed instrument, somewhat resembling a harp I believe), complimented with his fragile and sometimes cracked vocals. at times the music slips into dizzying mantras, like locked grooves that seem to be cut into my head, playing over and over again hours after I've stopped listening to the album.

my only regret is that there are not more songs sung in his native french tongue. not that I'd substitue any of the tracks present, rather a second CD maybe?

Up there with your Jose Gonzalezs and Nick Drakes for me.

I love intimate, sparse acoustic records by virtuoso with a personal vision. As such, Thee Stranded Horse should be right up my street.
This is an eight-track album, which I initially feared would leave me feeling short changed. Thankfully, this wasn't the case at all - one of the tracks runs in at just short of 10 minutes! In fact, eight songs is plenty as an introduction to a wayward talent.
The music is mantra-like and built around the simple backdrop of sublime guitar/kora picking and vocals. The breathtaking musicianship is the reason for the three stars, the vocals the reason for the loss of two.
With repeated plays the vox have become less distracting to me, but the fact of the matter remains that they are mannered and idiosyncratic at best. At times it sounds like a madman has stumbled into the recording session and started over-enthusiastically rambling over an award-winning performance. Great shame, but the playing is masterful and still worth investing in.
