Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Fourth Djabe studio album bring many changes to their music again. Vocalist was changed ( to guest one Moroccan Saďd Tichiti), British sax player Ben Castle participated on album as guest as well, but most important, total music sound became different.

If two first albums contained aerial jazz fusion with world elements, and third album was mostly world fusion, fourth one contains very rich mix of jazz fusion and symphonic rock. In some songs you can hear almost pure symphonic prog, another are jazz fusion in key of Machavishnu Orchestra, and some compositions are made under heavy influence of Gong's "Zero To Infinity" (2000) album with soft melodic music, filled with sax solos.

All sound became more modern, clear acoustic or early albums changed to synth filled rich sound. World elements are everywhere but in very controlled quantities ( including oriental vocal).

Album is more mature and should attract wider circle of listeners, but I am missing fresh air of early albums in many moments. Anyway, very strong work.
