Album Review

It's hard to say whether hindsight is an effective tool or not when it comes to music. To look with a critical eye back over the span of an artist's career may not be exactly fair, but it seems quite useful to a listener trying to make a selection of, say, a greatest-hits collection versus individual releases. The work of Krishna Das is a great example. If you examine his albums closely, you will begin to notice a few trends in the track listings. More than once has he done "Hanuman Chaleesa," "Devi Puja," and "Hara Hara Mahadeva," though the former makes nary an appearance on this particular record. However, Sting does. He chirps his way through "Mountain Hare Krishna" with that ever-entrancing Sting voice of his. Of course, the song "Mountain Hare Krishna" was reincarnated on Das' Live on Earth release in 1999. What to do? If you're a hardcore kirtan lover, then you'll want this on your shelf. If you're only looking for a Das sampler, you'd do better to pick up his Live on Earth. That way you throw a wider net capturing his work, and as a bonus you get to avoid the very odd, slightly disconcerting, calypso-style "The Ring Song."

Life Changing

There is only one thing really to say about this album: It is is divine. The Mantra's merged in with the beautiful melodies Mr. Das has composed may even awaken the most unconscious of us. Good for easy listening as well as group meditations. Mountain Hare Krishna is in a league of its own!

Dude

This CD rocks. I first heard it when my hippie mom was playing it in the kitchen and I can't stop listening to it. Even though it's religious it has a great beat and the voices are really cool. It’s awesome!

catchy music

I listened to this music when my room mate was playing it loud. Loved the voice of the singer. Though very different from the traditional Indian hymes, people will definitely enjoy it.
