"This is the most intensely beautiful music I have EVER heard!"Fly, Fly My Sadness" is ther perfect name for this CD, even if you aren't sad when you decide to listen to it.I am a music junky, in both the aesthetic and spiritual senses. While I was expecting this CD to be a nice addition to my collection, I was in no way prepared for the intensity of the EMOTIONS it brought forth in me . . in spite of myself. This music reaches deep down inside, gripping that part of ourselves we tend to stuff away 99% of the time and pulling it quickly to the surface . . out into the fresh air and sunlight . . and pours a refreshing drink of pure water down our parched throats before standing us back down on our own feet. I quite literally sat here weeping while listening for the first time (and that's never happened to me before!). The entire CD is put together in such a way that, if one listens to it from beginning to end, one is gently lifted, then suddenly soaring high in the clouds, and gradually brought safely back to the ground again feeling renewed and reaffirmed.If you feel as though your spirit is broken and nearly dead, listen to this CD. If you think you have no imagination, no more sense of wonder and awe at the world around you, listen to this CD.If you want to feel closer to God/Nature, closer to your fellow human beings--or simply more closely intuned to yourself--listen to this CD. You will find yourself plugged back in.If you are in any way, ever, moved by beautiful music, do NOT overlook this unbelievable music!"
A great blend of Tuvan and Bulgarian sounds

"Tuvan throat-singing is an amazing thing: the singer can make two notes at once, with a lower drone note and a higher melody produced from the overtones of the low note. But there's not a huge amount of variety in Tuvan music--my third Huun-Huur-Tu CD sounds very much like the first. So Huun-Huur-Tu members have tried various hybrid projects combining their sound with others. Unlike the mediocre Vershki da Koreshki (which merged Huun-Huur-Tu's Kaigal-ool Khovalyg with a Senegalese singer and two Russian jazz musicians), this one is a winner. The Angelite choir includes several singers who previously recorded as Mystere de Voix Bulgares; their sound is also other-worldly, but in a very different way that somehow meshes well with the Tuvans. Most of the CD consists solely of vocals, with occasional igil (a Tuvan two-stringed upright viola) and a couple of melodica passages by Mikhail Alperin, who conceived the project and wrote most of the music based on traditional pieces. The sound is intimate and moving. A second CD by the ensemble, "Mountain Tale", is nowhere near as compelling."
