Gaudi & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: Dub Qawwali

I have real mixed feelings about this record, and not on puritanical grounds like the official reviewer at Amazon does, I am just not sure I like it!

It is hard not to be entranced by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's voice or to be impressed by how well his vocals seem to mesh with the electronic and dub musical pieces...my issue is that a lot of it just seems sort of...lightweight.

That said, there are a couple of deep tracks and since it is my preference to focus on the positive, especially concerning a record that attempts to accomplish so much, those are the tracks I am making available today...

Anyway, see for yourself and let me know what you think.
