Good Solid Effort

"While there are no tracks as immediately captivating as the party classic "Se Dem Bonjou'" on Majestik Zouk, Kassav have assembled another solid collection of good songs for this disk. "Leve Tet Ou" is a real stand out. Jocelyne grooves with so little effort that she approaches perfection. The rhythms are first rate and the band's infectous enthusiasm really does seem inexhaustible. YOU CANNOT STOP THIS KASSAV PARTY. My only problem with this cd is that "Kassav au Zenith" has many of the same songs recorded live where the band tears the roof off of the Zenith in Paris. Sheer insanity. There is an energy that is lacking from the studio that keeps this from being a truly outstanding disk. Still, well worth the purchase price to simply share in the fun. Get the "Zenith" cd if you are ready for a serious all-out party. The band deserves much more respect than it gets from the American music critics. My advice to them: Lighten up and pour yourself a drink. Wake up and smell the guava, guys. There's a party goin' on, so don't blame the band if you miss it."
