Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The primordial unknown--or the modern urban dweller's impressions thereof--has long been a staple of New Age music. So it was only a matter of time before some studio whiz got the notion to take the translation process one step further and bring that atmosphere to the dance floor. It's definitely authentic--the creators studied and borrowed genuine chants from African tribes--but just as importantly, it's remarkably seductive. The chart-topping signature song, "Sweet Lullaby," is indicative of what's going on in the grooves of the other nine tracks; ambient house beats burble pastorally while "multi-culti" samples ebb and flow gracefully, even romantically, through the mix. -- David Sprague

Format:Audio CD
This record is a must have, because it defined a new era of crossover-style music. It took Pygmies and put them to an Enigma beat, with an occasional broken English (Dutch syntax?) commentary. Sounds cheezy, but it really works.
The band describes themselves as not a band. "Deep Forest" is a project, according to its creators. Therefore, the album is a stand-alone work, except that it enjoyed such an unpredicted success that it spawned a series of projects.
I first bought this album as an import in the early 90's. "Sweet Lullaby" had been getting some pretty frequent radio play on the San Francisco alternative rock stations, and it was simply intriguing. Nobody had ever heard voices like this. Mix in ambient jungle sounds. Synthetic beat. What a combination? Sound strange? It's not that different from what we hear today from Fatboy Slim and Moby, except of course with Pygmies. I don't think many have dared to replicate it.
Now, it's become a near-desert island CD for me. I've memorized the Pygmy chants. I've lost several copies of it--ex girlfriends, auto-thefts, etc. . . Always, I replace it. That's a pretty strong recommendation.
I've heard Deep Forest collaborations with Enigma, and Peter Gabriel, which are works of merit. Frankly, I think that this is still their most ingenious work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Techno Bell December 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Deep Forest back when i was in high school, working at Taco Bell. We listened to Muzak's "Hitline" satellite program there and they used to play track #1- "Deep Forest", all the time. I was fascinated by that song....I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be techno, dance, ambient, or whatever. I wasn't even sure what language they were singing in. It took me a while to track down the artist and CD and 11 years later I am *still* listening to it. Marta's Song from Boheme also rocks....

5.0 out of 5 stars Into Another World October 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This music speaks a language that is new to our ears, yet familiar in a way that can't be named. The first time I heard it was in a shop in Santa Barbara, CA over a decade ago. I immediately went up to the counter, asked what was playing, and purchase it. Years later, one of these songs would turn up as the theme to the reality TV show, Survivor.

If I go too long without listening to this CD, I am drawn back to it like a missing link.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal debut! March 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first became familiar with Deep Forest after being amazed with their 1999 live album release "Made in Japan". Although it wouldn't happen until a while later, I later checked out their regular studio albums and finally got a hold of their self-titled debut album and I must say that this is a really amazing album and as it was ground-breaking back during 1993 when it came out, this album still stands out amongst the countless jabs at blending world music and modern New Age rhythms with mainstream dance music because it remains the only album I'm aware of that blends African Pygmy chants with Euro dance, New Age, and Pop in such a successful way. Even today, this album still has the power to take you to a place of harmony that is entire universes away from a hellish life and unkind world that seems to define reality. The album overall has a remote yet vibrant sound that is very natural and earthy in sound. Even the darker parts have a positive mood. Four Tracks on this album are actually two tracks in two separate versions.
The international chart topping hit "Lullaby" is what most Deep Forest fans are likely familiar with, making it's way onto several New Age and/or world compilations with it's light hip-hop beat but if you're going for it on here, you may have limited luck as the version on the album is quite different and must I say very unique too. There are two versions on this album. One is a 'regular' album version. This version is a bit darker and more ambient in nature than the single edit found on let's say the "Pure Moods" compilation. To me, this was a bit of a surprise but albeit, a very pleasant surprise. The second version towards the end of the album is called the "Ambient Mix" edit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eco-Techno-Mondo Funky May 22, 1998
By L
Format:Audio CD
What an interesting an bizarre concept that really just seems to work! One can almost detect the primordial ooze seeping though the CD player! Pygmie chants and synth music make DEEP FOREST (and pretty much all their subsequent CDs) an "eco-friendly" listen full of dancy tunes! This project is a product of today's interests and is a happy look into some cultures that may never have given the listener an open door into which he/she might peer. It is unique and definitely worth a listen. If you are into Deep Forest, you might also want to consider other CDs by groups such as Enigma and Dead Can Dance, which are a bit less peppy but great for the unique way in which they all fuse many different sounds into a thoroughly modern mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Global music mix-Geniuses October 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the best cultural mix album I have ever heard. Simple lyrics and sounds are cleverly mixed with sophisticated musical instruments to create a musical product that just blows the mind. If you are a genuine music lover, you do not have to understand the language-you just feel the human emotion in the music...which is universal and therefore a common language across cultures. I have all of Deep Forest's albums but this album is definately the best-so far. I know Deep Forest has been criticized by others for using "unathorized" material. I beg to differ. There is no such thing in a collective society such as the one the forest pygmies have-"what belongs to me belongs to all of us." They would have been offended if they had been offered monetary rewards. Just by being recorded, published and heard all over the world is enough reward for these simple and wonderful people. Some things just cannot be measured in dollars and cents. I am sure the pygmies themselves would agree. Even if this is not music from the forest...it could have been from mars, or anywhere in the universe...I still love it. And I am glad Deep Forest has a good ear for recognizing good music, the creativity and motivation to do something about it...and most of all, to bring it to the attention of the world. They should be encouraged rather than be discouraged by bad press. Love you DF!Keep up the excellent work.
