This music sounds like it is from another world. The instruments on here are blend and balance each other, and every song has a drastically different feel. Some tracks are different takes on the same song, and I didn't really like that they were always right next to each other, so I recommend changing the order of the tracks for more variety. All of these songs are really good, particularly the funeral, spirit dance, and klawng luang (not sure why this track is on here, it is mostly parade noises, but still maintains the disorienting feeling of the album). Highly recommended if you like world music that isn't totally adulterated by the west.
