AWESTRUCK!!!!!
10/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one album not to be missed. If you like dancing or just relaxing then Freedom will accomplish that and so much more! Never before has music been fused the way the Yunupingu clan have done. After one listen to this album, you'll wonder why traditional Koori(Aboriginal) music and rock/techno wasn't combined long ago. One can get a sense of pride, joy and just plain fun after listening to the captivating combo of bilma sticks, yidaki and Mandawuy's vocals! Songs like "Back to Culture", and "Timeless Land" will take you to new boundaries as you learn about Koori culture and jam along the way. "Gapu" will take you to where you most desire as it transports you to where your heart most desires. Believe you me, you don't want to miss this! Check out Tribal Voice as well. Music unlike any other! Never a dull moment! It's got meaningful lyrics and substance, with every listen you will be renewed!"

"This is a cd worth picking up. Lots of good cuts on this gem. Along with the 13 Yothu Yindi band members {from the Yolngu -Aboriginal- homelands on the ne coast of Australia} they are supported on this disc by Neil Finn (ex-Crowded House and Split Enz), Bill Lasswell and Bernie Worrell, among others. My faves on this album: Timeless Land, Back to Culture, Yolngu Boy and Dots on the Shells."
