Album Review
Reviewed 2003-02-09 
Mondo Melodia, 2002

Yes, yes, yes, it's bellydance mania! Here's the gimmick: eight of the top belly-dancers working in the United States have selected sixteen of their favorite dance songs, old and new. The results are more or less what you'd expect: high energy, booty-shaking Middle-Eastern pop, extra heavy on the percussion and with just the right edge of cheesiness. My favorite collection of this type in quite a while!

Fo's Picks: 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14

01. dramatic instrumental; great drums
02. droning fem vocal, perky backing
03. solid bounce, but way overproduced
04. a 3 part mini-epic w/big strings
05. over-the-top drama, fast groove
06. catchy Arabic soul; aggressive voc.
07. old-school instr.; excellent strings
08. mechanical beat; hip-hoppish vocal
09. nothin' but drums! first-rate stuff.
10. very perky, shifting tempo, odd vocal
11. the gipsy kings go south...
12. slower and mysterious, extra-slinky
13. intriguing, cinematic, Spanish tinge
14. anguished vocal: long intro, then fast
15. more varied but longer than #9
16. very commercial-sounding pop
