One of the best
Deji Osinulu | 04/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Everyone's got their favorite Fela record... For me, there is something amazing about the music he made towards the end of his career, and TDTMN is one of the best. The horn lines got more complex, the band sounds HUGE, the guitars even more intricate, and the beats sometimes slower than earlier (better to feel with your whole body). The production is so clear on this album. A beautiful recording"
Refined, Clear, Quite Nice

"Fela's music here sounds clean and clear, with just the amount of echo that the masses want to hear, and the horns and vocals are just elaborate and complex enough to tickle the ear. Everything is in a commercially acceptable place, it sounds like one of those records that win Grammies ...

Musically, everything is in the right place. The band is able to maintain long grooves smoothly and effortlessly, and call little attention to themselves while providing smooth/"quiet storm" vibe. Fela uses the vocals and especially the backing vocals, on tracks 1 & 3, to provide complicated patterns that add to the music. The music resembles Fela's earlier music, but more relaxed

His aim here seemed to be to incorporate more African elements into the record (make it just a bit more Nigerian and less Western), and to provide a very well-engineered recording. He succeeded in these aims and produced what is a very fine and satisfying record; all 3 tracks are more or less masterpieces."
