"The "Buddha of Medicine" offers little more than snake oil in a 2-track CD comprising the same looping tape in each track. With its slithering synthesizers and bippity-bop percussion backing up an electronic, stringed instrument and some slick voices, it is about as remniscient of Buddhist music as the tunes arranged by Mitch Miller. The album's redundancy and vacuity may be good medicine for insomnia, but those who are interested in hearing authentic Buddhist music may want to pass it up. Suggestion: try something other than Tibetan Buddhist chants for a change and listen instead to the Vietnamese variety offered on "Anthology of World Music: The Music of Vietnam" (Rounder CD 5140/41). The 2-CD set offers a good cross-section of Vietnam's music, including two intriguing Buddhist chants. Much more interesting and healthful than the coma induced by "The Buddha of Medicine.""
