"If you have been exposed to Cheb Mami's previous works, you will not be disappointed in this album. Cheb Mami proves once again why he's at the top of the Rai totem pole. This CD has been on constant repeat in my car and my office for a good 3+ weeks now. Every track is a winner, Nos Couleurs has a little too much hip hop flavor for my taste but others might like it."

"Only the comatose could resist moving along to the world beats on this beautiful and exciting album. Unlike dance music that is all beat and bass, one might be tempted to hum along with Cheb Mami's intensely melodic vocals - if one dares.
The whole of Layali is an invitation to celebrate life, so as the sole English line on the album encourages: "Come on baby, let's go dance!"

"A friend got me a tape of Cheb Mami's Mela Mela when he was teaching English in Saudi Arabia. I liked that album alot and based upon that, I bought Layali. There are some good songs but overall, I found the cd to be very techno-pop and not very Algerian. I admit that as a white guy from the Midwest I am not hip to the youth culture of Algeria but Layali sounds to me like any other pop album from anywhere. In other words, it is nothing special."
