Customer Reviews

hmmm... so, so

Première écoute assez décevante... Tiken Jah quitte le reggae pour aller vers les balades... Je trouve ça moche... Mais comme c'est Tiken Jah, je vais réécouter et prêter l'oreille... peut-être le charme opérera-t-il malgré tout...

Un retour aux sources

Cinq ans après son exil au Mali, Tiken Jah nous arrive avec un album imprégné d'influences venant de son pays adoptif. Les percussions africaines traditionelles prennent la place du rhytme One drop Reggae et donne à cet album un flair typiquement Africain. Le message de Tiken Jah est de redonner la place au Africains en Afrique et le retour vers la tradition semble s'inscrire dans sa progression artistique. Le seul défaut est peut-être une trop grande dépendance sur la guitare de Thomas Naïm qui semble recycler les mêmes thèmes dans la plupart des chansons. Les titres principaux étant en anglais, nous pouvons supposer qu'il cherche à rayonner sur le marché international.

Great Reggea, great texts, solid music

After hearing an interview in which he explained plainly and clearly the future for Africa, this man impressed me with his lucidity. Democracy will happen but education is required first. Listen to his texts, enjoy the music; this is one album you just leave one looping... "je ne veux pas ton pouvoir" is both so melodic and rich in meaning, it is quite amazing. Tiken is an artist worth supporting, and with music that great, it is quite easy to do. Enjoy!
