Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This was the first "post-Cheb" Khaled recording, trimming down the Cheb Khaled name while beefing up his accessibility to the French, and soon American, pop music markets. Under the production wings of Don Was, the funk master, and Michael Brook, the mood maker, he expanded from the cheesy synth-and-drum machine sound of street level rai and made his first bid for international stardom. It's a mixed bag, with a few songs finding new turf for the gritty rai sound and mixing it up with some real American R&B. He tosses in some nice flamenco and Moroccan touches here and there, as well. Many others fail to capture either the raw energy of Algerian pop or Khaled's growing pop sophistication. --Louis Gibson

A friend of mine was stationed in Europe (1996) and some how he aquired Khaled's CD. At first I was a little skeptical regarding the language barrier. How could I possible enjoy Khaled's CD or Rai music if I couldn't understand the words? After listening to Khaled sing a couple of tunes, I was very impressed. Even though I didn't understand the words, (I still don't) the music has a voice of its own. I especially like the track, "Didi." Diffinitely club oriented and spirited in nature. I look forward to hearing more from Khaled. ( ^_^ )

Although this album was released some years ago, I don't think anyone has come close to making such a popular Rai album as this one. The combination of French and Algerian music and lyrics still sounds fresh and is nice to dance to. If you like this you should try Rachid Taha (although I don't think his voice is as good) and Natacha Atlas, who also mix Arabic sounds with western (dance) music.

everything this guy does is great. not many americans know about rai music, but i can't see how anyone wouldn't enjoy it. didi is the most danceable song i've ever heard. all his songs have more than enough beat to make you want to dance the night away, but the arab rythyms and singing are also pleasing enough just to listen to. great stuff.

A Kid's Review on December 2, 2001

Khaled is my favorite rai artist ever! I first discovered rai when my mom bought a CD with various rai and other north african artists, I started to LOVE algerian rai!!! Mauvauis Sang is soooooo cool.

I've been listening to Khaled since his "Cheb" days. While I'm kinda partial to his early stuff, I really like this CD. "Mauvais Sang" and "El Arbi" are just two of its gems. The whole CD is exotic - with western touches and lots of electricity! What a jolt! And Khaled's voice is so soulful and passionate - like no other in rai music. I listen to this CD while I exercise. It makes for an enjoyable workout that goes by quickly! Get this CD while you can!:)

This singer is really great, I never listen before singing like this, all songs are great, you will listen a modern north african music, Rai, pop-rock,spanish-rumba, all together with the incredible voice of Khaled.
