Album Review

On November 14, 2008, Kiosk released their third studio album, Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani (or Global Zoo) — again in collaboration with their previous label, Bamahang. "Global Zoo," as Arash Sobhani describes it, is an inevitable consequence of the failure of the Dialogue of Civilizations theory in today's world, and the album represents the band's viewpoint about the aftereffects. Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani starts with "Aay Aay," a song in which one can find almost all the themes and moods on display throughout the remainder of the album. As in their previous albums, Kiosk again try to remain current regarding all the issues and obstacles in Iran, although the band has been mainly based in the U.S. since 2006. Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani is a stinging satire regarding internal hindrances — including mismanagement, poor economic situations, energy issues, etc. — as well as external policies, as expressed by opposition groups in Europe and the U.S. and its Administration. There are also couple of ballads, such as the primarily waltz-like songs "Charkhesh e Pooch" and "Livaanha, Botriha, Gaalonha." Consisting of ten songs in total, Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani flows from the beginning to the seventh track, "Gerogaangiri dar Baagh e Vahsh," sharing the same critical and satirical stance, until the arrival of "Charkhesh e Pooch," a late interlude, and the following "Yaarom Bia," a nicely arranged piece and revisited dance song, a famous cover from Persian folklore with the same title, featuring one of the most controversial of Iranian singer/songwriters, Mohssen Namjoo. Bagh e Vahsh e Jahani shares a variety of styles from blues and Gypsy jazz — as the band prefers to call it — to folk-rock and waltzes, so it may sound somewhat different from Kiosk's previous works.

Customer Reviews

Kiosk Rocks!!!!

These guys are getting better and better with the release of each of their albums. I just love the sound of their music and their lyrics. I would buy any album they give out.

Lovely

I don't like some sounding technics that make it hard to understand the lyrics, otherwise loved some of songs like Pragmatism e Eshghi. Lyrics are fantastic like always. Merit a "well done" to Kiosk.

More Musical, Less Social/Political

I'm one of serius fans of Arash and the band.
As he said himself, Amore' de la Velocidad smells more like Tehran and I can feel it in all songs (other than Agha Negahdar) that they're paying more to music than to lyrics in this Album.
Technically I really believe this one is the best till now and the band is stablishing its new identity (Than an imitation of Dire Straits, which was itself a nice and innovative way of imitation).
Agha Negahdar, Kafsh and Yarom Bia are the best songs in this album respectively and I've given 4 stars to it overall.

The main trait of Kiosk is using slangy, informal, and humorous language...
