CD Reviews

Matoub's last CD ever ...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lounes Matoub was killed a few days before this CD was released. The CD, entitled "open letter to ..." is a highly political one and symbolizes Matoub's activism for a democratic Algeria and the Berber struggle. In particular, the song "open letter to ...," sung with the rythm of the Algerian national anthem, is an attack directed at the 37 year old Arabo-Islamic Algerian dictatorship for ruining Algeria politically, economically, socially, and culturally and for being the cause of the current crisis that has plagued the Algerian people."
Summary of Matoub Loune's : Lettre ouverte aux.... | 03/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The quality of both the music and the words are fantastic.IMHO Matoub Lounes have reached in this last CD the summit of his artistic carreer, which is highly vaunted, owing to the aforesaid statement. It illustrates also the assiduous work of Lounes to promote the Algerian Popular music."
Best of the best - Matoub est et sera toujours vivant | Brooklyn, NY | 09/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With this CD, he expressed exactly what most of the artists are afraid to say or sing in Algeria. In all the songs I loved the words, the music and specially his amazing voice. Il est l'un des maitres du CHAABI en Algerie. Il a ete tue avec/par lachete, mais il y a des millions de MATOUBS en Algerie."
