Customer Review

on 15 December 2002
...I too have been listening to global music for many years and can state that while I have heard the same thing done before it is done just as well if not better on this album.The production is terrific.The ear for music of the two producers and the way they construct songs making the most perfect use of their artists is magnificent.Having never fallen for the hype about Eddi Reader's voice I was apprehensive about her featuring but the production just makes the best use of her.Similarly who can listen to the opening track and not get their imagination jerked into visualising Baba Maal in his natural setting (town or country) crying out his prayer.How can anyone not wonder at Tibetan Prayer Bells fitting so perfectly into a song as "All Alone".Even the spoken pieces just fit in and complement the music everywhere on the album.The overall message of the album - the one world,full of humans of great differnces culturally but physically from the same make up comes through in the album.Yes encourage people to listen to more world music.By all means quote the names of some criminally overlooked artists of the past 3 decades but let people come to appreciate global music in whatever way they come to it. Easily the finest album this year!
