I highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes New Age music with a twist of electronica.
E. R. Thompson
It begins with a very misty sharp-sounding flute or other wind instrument and becomes a very dark and haunting track with African beats and strange ominous melody.
Distant Voyageur
I'm unable to put anything else down in words, as from today's music and style, Deep Forest's Boheme is really different to compare it to anything else.

'Music Detected' was my first CD by Deep Forest and, even though I loved it while most other DF fans were disappointed and some even appalled by their drastic change in sound, after listening to their highly praised 'Boheme' I now have a better understanding of why!
I still love 'Music Detected' and wouldn't dream of changing my rating, but after hearing 'Boheme' it simply blew me away and just might have affected the way I thought about MD if I had purchased this before that...
'Music Detected' has a more eclectic sound than 'Boheme' for (unlike this album) MD mixed an interesting, if not hypnotic fusion of world, rock, dance and soul with most of the songs sung in english, which must have taken a lot of die-hard Deep Forest fans for a loop because their initial style has a more ethnic-world sound with modern beats and ancient pygmy vocals that are rich (and yes, a little strange) but full of life and vigor!
Both are very good but to compare them is somewhat difficult for they're both so very different!
'Music Detected' will never dish up classic DF tracks like "Marta's Song" and "Boheme" but if you have an open-mind than DF fans will hopefully learn to grow with their expanding overflow of experimentations... I for one was completely enthralled with both albums and am deeply looking forward to checking out their other releases, which are probably just as amazing!
Aside from the god-awful "Bulgarian Melody" (which should have never been sung as a ballad), the rest of 'Boheme' is simply mind-boggling and all fans of world music should get themselves a copy...Pronto!

I was absolutely amazed with Deep Forests debut album. It was and still is one of the most groundbreaking world music albums of all time and it's a huge crime that it isn't carried by retailers. It is still an amazing CD to this very day. It blended Pygmy voices with modern dance and the result was a masterpiece. This follow-up to that album entitled "Boheme" raises the bar even higher by having Deep Forest travel from the remoteness of Sub-Saharan Africa, to the forests of Bulgaria and Eastern Europe and the result is beyond what I could give out and "Boheme" is in my opinion, Deep Forest's best album to date although "Music Detected" may offer competition. The album has a much darker and more dramatic undertone than their debut album does but I love it.
"Anasthasia" starts the album on a dark, eerie, and slightly ominous note with a very tribal sound with haunting flutes and a haunting ambience that gives the song a feel of like drifting through the forests of the Alps with nearby storms. Eventually the song gets more and more intense until it suddenly ends at just less than two minutes length. The echoes of "Anashthasia" perfect blend into the drama of my favorite track on this album "Bohemian Ballet". This is one of their best `studio' album tracks that they've ever created. At first, the clanging dance sound effects would imply a Latin folk track but it becomes a very intense, dramatic, and dark song. Things get even better when it becomes a vibrant and energetic dance song with haunting and bizarrely amplified Eastern European voices backed by the intense melody. This song is my favorite song on this entire album. "Marta's Song" is sheer beauty.

If you're thinking of buying this piece of music, let me qualify my generous rating by stating that I have owned and enjoyed their first album for several years now. This second work of theirs has much of what made me a fan of their debut effort: great melodies, lush orchestrations via synthesizers, groovy rhythms, and really cool use of sampled vocals. While the first recording primarily used samples of jungle peoples' folk tunes and chants, Boheme gathers voices from a variety of places: Hungarian folk tunes, Totowa Indian songs, a choir from China, even a (gasp!) live Eastern European female vocalist. The result is richer than their first CD, with more variety in terms of tempo, timbre (i.e., the sonic choices), and mood.

Like a fine French meal laced with treats from Asia and Africa, the Middle East and place in between, this Deep Forest CD is a treat for all the senses. Sensual, earthy and magical. As the creators note 'Afin que se balade, se tisse et se bataisse la rapsodie moderne de Bhoeme, nous en avons varie les sons, les provenaces et les orchestrations'. "To allow the wandering, weaving, and building of Boheme's modern Bohemian rhapsody, we have varied sounds, origins and orchestrations'.

Anasthasia has a middle eastern feel with deep string instruments and drumming, with a magical flute that tickles the senses. The way the flute and voices quiver is spell binding.

Bohemian Ballet is a song that I and friends literally get up and dance to, whether inside or outside on the beach or near our mountain stream. It is a happy song that has sensual rhythms that are intoxicating. Raise your hands and clap along as you do your own style of belly dance.

Martas Song begins with what sounds like a rain stick and a woman's beautiful voice, and evolves into an echoing style with yodeling undertones from men in an Indian or Chinese flare.

Gathering has a mystical sound and I could easily invision swirlkling in hympnotic circles. For me there were hints of northern Africa in the sounds of the men's voices. Although I could easily invision remote Greek villages full of men dancing in traditional Greek circles.

Lament begins with a magical flute group that slowly evolves to a man singing who sounds a tad Tibetain or Eastern European, and then just as quickly it seems as if a group of children from China are accompaning him. A slow almost lullaby beat.
