Album Review
Reviewed 2003-05-21 
Dreamy songs good for meditation or blowing smoke rings. Much of this is oversynthed, but there are some interesting, memorable, quality pieces.
1. Meandering fem vox, catchy, repetitive tune and droning synths. Appealing and mystical.
2. Echoe-y violin and lute atop a synthesized drumbeat. Fragments of male vox, fem sighs (!),
3. Windy, artificial-sounding synths, solo trumpet, Eh.
4. Hamza sings & accompanies self on oud. Quality music.
5. Ethereal, loungy feel, w/ soaring male Arabic vox.
6. Nice pipes over synth bed for that high lonesome sound.
7. Soaring, ghostly fem vox, violin picks tune up later. Pretty and delicate w/ moderate perc. Sounds like a movie track.
8. Cymbals, perc., violin, fun tune, No synths in sight, thank goodness.
9. Lute, meandering pipes, measured & stately.
10. Male vox, guitar, drony synths, dreamy.
11. Electronica w/ piano, song fragments. Double eh.
12. Soaring fem vox over windy synths. We have this CD in our library, btw.
