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

CD Reviews

Footsteps in the Light - Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens)
Henry Rosner | Huntingdon Valley, Pa United States | 02/07/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"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
Franz Metcalf | Los Angeles, CA United States | 05/09/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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."
