Review by Gooner
4 stars Great place to start with Baraka is right here. All instrumental. Have you ever wondered what Rush would sound like if they ever released an instrumental album? Look no further than BARAKA. If you enjoy Rush, Talisma, Priam, Ed Wynne of the Ozric Tentacles, Pat Metheny, Joe Satriani, Robin Trower and the band Kong...BARAKA would definitely appeal to you. This album covers the whole slate of the aforementioned. _Bharmad_ is the 20 minute masterpiece on this album with recurring themes, etc. The rest of the VII album holds up well after the 20 minute masterwork. In fact, if you're not up for a continuous 20 minute instrumental piece, there's an additional 6 tracks(a traditional album's worth) of fine material. At times jazzy, at times contemplative/bluesy and others outright borderline heavy metal...BARAKA is sure to please. Keyboards appear slightly more as a colouring than a prominant instrument in the Baraka-sound. Another great point of reference for the BARAKA-sound would be the album by Kazumi Watanabe known as _Pandora_ from 1992(with Resonance Vox). If you wanted more where that came from, BARAKA VII would be a great addition to your prog.rock/jazz fusion collection.
