CD Reviews

Like nothing you've ever heard before ...
Mike McNally | Austin, TX United States | 04/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... unless, I have to guess, you've spent time in Okinawa.I bought this CD at random from a used CD bin about five years ago. When I spun it up for the first time that evening, I almost fell over with amazement. I'm listening to it right now and that feeling hasn't changed.With no disrespect meant to Okinawans or their music, I'll attempt to describe this as sounding like ... well, no, never mind. It's happy, upbeat in the purest sense, and wierdly catchy. The songs simply will not let go of your head. Read the lyric sheet for a further treat, as you learn that people really can write great songs about the simplest things in the world.Buy this album and treasure it."

"I first heard the song "Jing Jing" at the beginning of the movie "Return to Paradise." I immediately had to find out the title of the song and the group. I hunted down this CD and I am am so glad I bought it. The chorus of voices is so beautiful and the songs are very upbeat and cute. The album is a nice mix of Okinawan pop, traditional sounds, and reggae (sort of)."
