4 stars Another good album by our African friends of Osibisa. If you like their first album, you will like the second one too.

The album starts with my favorite Osibisa song "Beautiful Seven" that include a flute solo fallowed by a tam-tam solo, wow, thats my kind of music :)

"Y Sharp" fallow the same trend as the soncond song of their first album "Music For Gong Gong", lots of percussion and a sax solo.

"Spirits Up Above" is another highlight of the album, it starts out very soul but, the more the song goes, it change into a very good jazz groove with lots of percussion and a keyboards solo fallowed by a guitare solo, viva Africa ;)

"Survival" is another groovy percussion with horn section, you gota love groovy music because it what they are best at and this song shows it very well.

"Move On" is more funky, vocals and a groovy bass.

"Rabiatu" remind me of the song "Soul Sacrefice" by Santana, another very good song.

"Woyaya" is another song with vocals, more mellow, the song i like the least on the album.

Another album, another 4 Stars for Osibisa :)
