"This CD is really not the best one of Extra Musica. We remember their first CD: "les nouveaux missiles" in which Extra Musica redefined the "Soukouss' music. Everybody in Africa, from Congo ( In the Central part of Africa) to Senegal ( in the Western part of Africa, much more in the North) was dancing to their musica asking himself what is this wonderful "Ndobolo" music band. Not later than Chrismass '97, their second Cd: Confirmation was the reference for Ndobolo dance. Poeple said at this time : Forget Kofi Olomide, Papa Wemba, Alain Kounkou, General Defao, even the young and refreshing Wenge Musica ( L Paris ) for now we have the new generation. But then comes the problem of all the young and new groups: will of releasing CD after CD lacking preparation and having a decreasing quality of music. Up till now Extra Musica is doing pretty good till now and hopefully they will take their time and provide us with another CD of high quality. Good luck Brothers We love you here in Arlington, Tx and you know how much Cote d'Ivoire love your music."
Back for more!

"Yep, they did it again! While they don't stray too far from the formula that made dance floors beg for mercy (Losambo, Reconnaissance..Lolango), Extra Musica throws in a few curveballs- The surprise is a pleasant one though: "Panique Totale" with its " Sango ya Mawa" feel is a thouroughly delightful tune. Champions D'afrique? I think so!"
