Canadian experimental guitarist Brook and the late, "shining star of Qawwal" come together for a second time to bring the music of Pakistan into a creative new realm. If you are a traditionalist who wants nothing but Pakistani music, stay away. This album is soaked in ambient electronic guitar noises and some of Khan's most out- of-the-tradition singing. These experiments are not to be confused with lots of electro-noodling, however. Both artists were devoted to their gods and their music, and it shows in the potency of these tracks. Brook seems to have been a natural match for Nusrat and has drawn out an unusual performance that probably fulfils the ideas that were only hinted at in their first collaboration, Musst Musst. --Louis Gibson

To me this is by far Ustaad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's most fruitul collaboration. And its an incredible album in its own right. Michael Brook has struck exactly the right note in his soundscapes that compliment Nusrat Fateh Ali's vocals perfectly. Its not Qawaali, or ghazaal, or ambient or 'world' music. This does not fit any established genre, but it truly is the meeting of two masterful musicians and a fusion of two musical cultures to form something wonderful in its own right. My personal favourite of the tracks is the opening 'My heart, my Life'. Its so simple, so elegant, yet so powerful in its ability to evoke an emotional response. To me its an affirmation of life itself.
Couldn't recommend this more. Its brilliant.

Forget world music genres this is simply one of the greatest albums ever recorded. The mixture of Nusrat Ali Khans stunning vocals, and Qawwal songs with Brooks western arrangments is stunning.
Buy it!!

Difficult to find word to express how wonderful this music is. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on his own is a genius combined with Brook he has produced what is simply some of the greatest music ever.

One of the two albums recorded with Michael Brook. Night Song is my favourite and one of my most listened to albums of all time. A wonderful combination of the distinctive traditional voice and music of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan with the western recording knowhow and instrumentation of Michael Brook. East and West at its best. Highly recommended.

As a regular window shopper at HMV, I saw the Night song CD and read its cover information - which clearly stated that it was a sequel to Musst Mustt. A week later, I bought it. On listening to all the tracks, the last track (8) entitled: Crest was out of this world and I kept listening to it over and over. The opening lyrics 'Mera Dil - Mere Jaan' 'My Heart, My Life...' From the opening track are tremendous. Apart from these positives, I was a bit let down by tracks 2, 4, 6 & 7 (the title track)! Track 3: Lament; Track 5: Longing; & Track 8: Crest by far the best track is all interlinked to the 'Teri Binay': meaning 'Without You' and 'Shaam Payee Khar Dholana' roughly meaning: 'When Darkness Falls going home will not be easy! These lyrics reminded me of the Famous Sufi poet Mian Mohammed Baksh's poem: `Saif-Al-Maluk' based around the words/metaphor 'While there is light'. However, there are some Pothowari/Punjabi lyrics in track 6 Sweet Pain - which - if they were elaborated further then it would make this track very powerful. The other problem that does not help this Album is that it was put together in a complex way and if it had been produced in a simpler way then it would have not lost the soul in the music. As they say: KISS principle - does have its benefits!

Overall, on saying that, Nusrat's vocals were fantastic and the collaboration/fusion with Michael Brook's string component came into its 'own genre' at track 8 - when I heard the guitar strings played with Nusrat's vocals were out of this world and any pop/rock musician would be proud of!

Obviously, if you only listened to Night song and have not heard Musst Mustt - then it is a Must buy Album. If you have both of these - then it will be good to listen to Bally Sagoo & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan collaborations via the re-mixes by Bally Sagoo `Magic touch and Ecstasy'.

I can't think of any other music that reaches me quite like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. It appeals to my soul in a way no other music can. This is a beautiful record.

A wonderful compliment to Nusrat Fateh Ali khan's traditional work - there are lots of complex rhythms and both joyous and haunting melodies - I love it!
