Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2002-05-09 
A popular music from the Congo that shares rhythms with Cuban rumba. Most of the songs here are from 1987-94. Melodic guitar at the forefront. Pleasant summer day relaxation music, has an effect like Highlife (though highlife is "more so"). 1. mid-tempo 2.a little more rockin', very produced 3.starts quiet & entirely synthed, when the guitar kicks in it's low in the mix. Restrained. 4.complex rhythm, midslow 5. OK, not outstanding 6. guy with a nice high voice, a bottle tapping and a guitar 7. too much production & synths for me 8. Borderline overproduced but I like the semi-chanting, male vox harmonies 9. I like this because the guitar is so close to highlife. Sounds like some accordian kicks in halfway. 10. horns in the intro and sprinkled around.
