Finally, Jah Wobble is back to songs. Don't get me wrong, his "Deep Space" adventures have been definitely exciting and novel, but I've been craving for some time for his somewhat tighter arrangements. And here it is "Shout at the devil", Wobble's bass grooming, kneading that is, ones ears, while otherwordly voices and pulsating, exotic sounds effervesce. This whole piece is exceptionally well peformed and balanced, with equal and solid contributions from all players (Natasha Atlas, Nina Miranda, and Count Dubulah, among others) involved. Can't stop listening to it.

Surely Jah Wobble is the leading exponent of world music at present. He fuses beautiful vocals with deep basslines that produce some of the most rootsy rythms you are likely to hear, all firmly grounded in dub. He takes his influences from all over the world and never fails to please, producing music that will suit any mood, or move you to any place you wish to be. Not bad for some-one who used to work on the London underground!

For any fan of world music this is an essential addition to your cd collection. The songs successfully merge a fusion between arabic music and jahs unique bass playing style.
I have most of jah wobbles albums and this one appeals particularly as a lot of the bass lines are in a similar vein to the classics he recorded with the Orb, which for me are his trade mark sound.
For me a return to a more melodic approach here is very welcome (whilst the songs on this are by no means pop songs!). I have difficulty getting bored of this album with the variations from lively dub to rich arabic vocal melodies making superb listening!

I just don't get tired of this album!
I didn't think an album of Eastern influence would be my cup of tea at all, but Jah Wobble proves me wrong!
10 songs of Arabic tinged, dub fuelled bliss - who could want more?
Highlights have to be: Hayati, Once upon a time in the East, La Citadelle & Mistralazul 2.
A masterpiece!

Perhaps I should have picked another place to start my Jah Wobble collection. This is an album without any spark to really engage a new listener. The songs are usually one-paced and built around the expected bass lines and a series of arabic influenced sounds or voices. Although many start promisingly few develop and tracks wander on without ever intriguing or surprising. The whole is not unpleasant but seems to need more inspiration. Compared with artists such as Cheb Mami or Natacha Atlas this seems lifeless. Sorry!
