Native American themes go techno
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lunar Drive is a very unusual set of songs, not quite like anything else in my collection but a definite favorite.The album combines traditional Native American themes,chants and short narrations with very contemporary techno embellishments and strong rythms. This is a tough album to classify. It is more rythmic and interesting than a lot of the atmospheric/environmental sort of New Age stuff, but it isn't the kind of stuff you are going to singing around the house, either."

"Just the title track and "Mo'Bridge, South Dakota" are worth the price of admission . . . Lunar Drive's music is very difficult to describe, much less pigeonhole into a given category. I suppose many would call it techno, but this is a too limited a definition and to be honest, rather insulting. Lunar Drive's musicians make use of the best of modern technology and blend it with traditional, Native American sounds. The result is some really unique, soulful, evocative and ultimately undescribable music - but definitely worth listening to."

"This is techno or dance music with heart and substance. It vividly blends Native American spoken pieces and music with sampling. The spoken pieces are set in a highlighting frame with the beats and music; they are thus honored and made more pointed. Surprisingly, since the music and musicians come from different parts of the world, the recording does evoke the haunted other world reality that is much of Arizona."
