"societies, which otherwise are often horribly mashed together in some DJ cofee house / car commerical nightmare. The music was not afraid to be harsh as well as it could be pleasant.
The thing about Muslimgauze is that the man behind the music was fiercely policitical about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict as well as Muslim/Arab culture, and one could gather this by reading his titles alone. Brian Jones was very passionate about his work, however he had no vocals really (except on the times he used vocal samples) making it mostly instrumental. It was rather the feeling the sound gave that said his piece, instead of words which could not. When Brian Jones died he left behind scores and scores of unpublished work, some of which is still coming out today.
Despite how some may feel over the composer's policitical stance, this release has no traces of policitical alignment, and the music is capativating as he dives back into past releases of his discography to create 3 large remix segments (lasting around 20 min. each) bending and reshaping the sound to great effect.
Fans of the IDM and avant-electronic scene could find this recording completely different, if not essential, for them."
