Is Obama on this cd? Sounds like it. The sounds of a crashing economy from a major engineer.

Footsteps in the Light - Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens)

"I bought this after purchasing "Another Cup". (which I thoroughly enjoyed) With the exception of maybe two tracks, this is a journey into the heart of Islam. I guess that's ok if you're into that sort of thing, but if you're looking for the old "Cat" you won't find him here."
Varied, but the Highs are Very High

"It's natural for a compilation like this one to be a bit all over the map. So here there are highs and lows. But the highs make this well worth having.
Yusuf's reworking of old material in several songs is interesting, but please know that this is Yusuf Islam covering Cat Stevens, not Cat Stevens himself. We all change and grow; please listen for the changed man.
That said, my favorite cuts here are all new. Yusuf's modernizations of traditional material are always fresh and his recording of the Adhan, the call to prayer is simply haunting. But the song that stays with me most is "God is the Light," which, to my ears, combines the tuneful beauty of old material with the humble spirituality of the new.
Note: the booklet accompanying the CD is one of the nicest and most informative I've ever seen. It adds a whole new dimension to the music."
What a treat

"Despite this album not having the complete flavor of the "old cat," this album has an amazing sound and transports you to another world and time. After hearing Another Cup I wondered if there were any more albums that had been put out before and was pleased to find that he had. The songs I liked best in the newest album were more rooted in the foundations of the arab culture and I was so excited to hear this album had even more to offer in that area."
