CD Reviews

Excruciatingly exquisite

(5 out of 5 stars)

"as often as not, just thinking of this record gives me waves of goosebumps. incredibly moving, timeless, well beyond mere know right away you're in the presence of something far from the familiar or expected. this record deserves to be heard by many people for a long time. As a DJ, I have what I call my "fish in a barrel" tracks, pieces that I know are going to invariably sweep across the room like a rapture, and near the top of the list is this record. I can't recommend it highly enough."
Don't Close Your Eyes

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mixing Western and Middle Eastern instrumentation and sensibilities, Badawi finds a dark intersection and explores every inch. There's a definite sense of evil, or at least danger, creeping through the notes; the underlying drones are as unsettling as the banjo boy from Deliverance. The percussion tends toward melody but never quite escapes its rhythms.The album plays on several themes: struggle, defeat, and enlightenment. The listener observes a heroic journey, and is rewarded for deep listening."
A trip into the middle east

"WOW,this is one hell of an album!if you are looking for asphodel label mates trickery,go elsewhere please-this is pure spirit... Basically a one man album,with asstiance from 2 string players, Raz mesinai plays all percussion(middle eastren stuff like darabuka and frame drums) and keyboards.The music itself is quiet minimal, and builds up from the begining of the cd till end. the are some very rhytmic cuts,but the over vibe is quite chilled out and relaxing( for me at least....).Hell - i go to sleep hearing this cd! my only Question is- who da hell is Raz mesinai? the cd has lots of hebrew and israeli names-what's da catch?"
