Album Review
Reviewed 2007-11-24
Typically good and varied Putumayo collection showcasing the best crop of today’s artists from Israel. As with most released from this label, every track is a gem with something for almost every taste. Play it all.

1. Relaxed blend of folk/pop and Jamacian feel-good. Warm fem vox.
2. Sweet, down/midtempo w/hints of blues. Great male vox/guitar.
3. Israel meets Brazil in this bossa-infused love song. Sweet.
4. Relaxed male/fem vocal duet reminiscent of a Paris café.
5. Bright mid/upbeat North African/Indian blend. Fun & hopeful.
6. Lazy indie rock w/a US influence & some good work from band.
7. Middle Eastern/funk/electronica blend. Mostly mid w/fem vox.
8. Relaxed, reggae-infused, lazy w/a tight band.
9. Guitar/male vox. Midtempo, relaxed, sweetly swaying, folksy.
10. Fun, stylish, jazzy. Downtempo w/ a playful, sophisticated sound.
11. Female folk/pop. Down/midtempo w/kind of a dark, jazzy feel.
12. Midtempo, driving pan-world blend. Anthemic & nicely powerful.
