Customer Reviews


The Drop That Contained the Sea is a beautiful follow-up to one of my favorite albums of all time, Calling All Dawns. It has a similar mix of passion, pathos, and inspiration. Drop strikes me as more bombastic than Dawns in some places, while being more subtle in others.

So far, my favorite tracks are “Iza Ngomso (Come Tomorrow),” which sounds to me like a worthy successor to the last album’s signature song, “Baba Yetu”; and the hypnotic “Seirenes (Sirens).” But I suspect that it will take a while to appreciate the nuances of each track, as it was for me with Calling All Dawns.

Anyone who appreciates great music, and especially the diverse sounds of the human voice, will love The Drop That Contained the Sea.


Christopher Tin's album is sublime, gorgeous and masterful. The music is beautiful, powerful, beautifully crafted, and the emotions are sweeping and profound. From the first song to the last, the music made my hair stand on my neck. My heart is filled with such joy, transcendental bliss and gratitude to have experienced Tin's talent and mastery. This album is a masterpiece !!!

Freaking Amazing

This album is decently a worthy successor to calling all dawns! Tin’s music is amazing and this album is no exception. Each of the songs build amazingly well and the complexity of each piece is unrivaled. Amazingly easy song is in a different language. I don’t know how he does it but I would highly recommend this to anyone that likes good music
