Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2011-08-20 
Recorded in Algeria, Tinariwen returns to their African blues roots with acoustic guitars and unamplified percussion. They also, for the first time, have guest stars with them, including Nels Cline and members of the Dirty Dozen Brass band. Solid, driving African blues. All of it is play-worthy.

1. Driving midtempo w/hot strings and percussion. 4:41
2. Downtempo and dark w/cool call/response husky vocals. 4:14
3. Way cool midtempo Afro blues w/great guitar and vocals. 4:15
4. Halting strings, then slow marching horns. Dark & so cool. 5:31
5. Relaxed w/unexpectedly lyrical backing vocals. 4:55
6. Soft vocals and gentle strings. Simple and lovely. 4:39
7. Relaxed bounce for claps, strings, perc, vocals. Yum. 3:45
8. Sandy-voiced vocals, midtempo perc, warm strings. Yes. 3:04
9. Cool bluesy head-nodder w/a a rich desert sound. 3:26
10. Strings blend, light perc, warm and growly vocals. Midtempo. 4:38
11. Soft at first, a melodic ripple of strings, perc, vocals. 5:50
12. Rusty vocals, relaxed guitar. Solidly cool Afro blues. 4:56
