Album Review

This isn't your "usual" kirtan chanting, if you consider Krishna Das and his posse to be usual. It's not all gussied up with Western instruments and such. And that's what is really nice about this disc — its simplicity and the beauty that is revealed through it.

It seems the ancient sages knew it would be tricky for someone down the line; they figured if the intention was pure, so would be the offering. And that's exactly the case here.
