One thing I find puzzling from some of the reviewers of this music is the failure to understand that this is not Qawwali music,is not under any pretence that it is and quite clearly,is a collaboration of differing influences. Why criticise it from a
Qawwali viewpoint afterall he did this knowing full well what he was doing and what's more he did it twice!Does that tell you something? Is it possible that some western Qawaali fans have decided that since discovering this music they have also discovered myopia(you can't touch my)dddegeneration.Now that's off my chest I would like to recommend some of the finest music to hit my ears.It's strange how it came about but I purchased Night Song well before I acquired Mustt Mustt and found that recording to be,as good as it is,(especially My Comfort Remains)quite different.As another reviewer pointed out Night Song has a more ambient feel and the influences appear to come at different levels .You can see Nusrat's intelligence through a willingness to explore on both of these recordings and as a result has created in my opinion truly great music, not forgetting Micheal Brook and Peter Gabriel etc.As for Mustt Musst as soon as I had the chance to listen a few times I felt that this is my favourite of the two.It seems to be richer in instrumentation especially percussion with more things happening and definitely more upbeat than the latter Night Song.At least that is how I felt.It should be realised the importance in bringing the extraordinary talents of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan closer to many more people who otherwise would not have had the benefit of experiencing (including myself) and I suspect a defining influence in how some music is approached these days.Like many no doubt, I find it sad that the man has passed on but fortunately he left us this along with his Qawwali.

This CD is interesting, thought maybe not a great introduction to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and qawwali. Many of the tracks are experimental versions of NFAK classics-- such as the title work "Mustt Mustt". The cadances are different from much of his other work and the instrumentation is interesting- lots of electric instruments and sound effects. If you are interested in mixing the contemporary music of the west with contemporary qawwali this would be a good choice. If instead you want an accessible, yet fairly authentic introduction to the style that made Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan famous, get "Akhian".

This is the first of two (three, if you count the collection of techno remixes released at the time of the artist's death) collaborations between one of the most amazing vocalists this world has heard within the last century and Canadian guitarist/composer Michael Brook, the 2nd being 1996's "Night Song".
>
Both are fantastic recordings, though this collection retains a bit more of the traditional central Asian sound heard in Nusrat's older recordings, and for that reason I prefer "Mustt Mustt". The sounds are evenly represented...some tracks include more Western "augmentation" than others (and in the case of the Massive Attack remix, a still-further Western deviation from an already very hip-sounding groove).
>
If the score from "Dead Man Walking" whetted your appetite for further examples of this great qawwali master's talent, I can't suggest a better starting point than this CD. "Night Song" is great as well, but I rate it a great ambient recording that owes more to Michael Brook's handiwork than the talent of the singer, who is given more of the center stage here.

i recommend this album for one reason: the song "Nothing Without You" is one of the most beautiful songs i have ever heard

it's hard to tell from the brief sample here on Amazon... but the song is pure beauty

i first heard this song (Nothing Without You) on the local Pacifica radio station some years ago... the sound engineer played it between shows... i was so enthralled by it, i immediately called up the station and asked the engineer what he was playing... i wrote it down and at first opportunity sought it out... i was lucky to find the album at my local Tower records (or did i have to special order it? i can't remember... this was pre-internet)

this is one of the songs that sometimes brings tears to my eyes just from its sheer beauty

(some others: Madame George by Van Morrison, Das Lied von die Erde by Mahler, Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers... for comparison, in case you wonder what moves my groove)

your mileage may vary... art, afterall, is a matter of taste...

but... this is a profane song, it's a profane album -- Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan usually sings sacred music... i personally think this is the closest a love song ever comes to rivalling the most sacred of sacred songs, irrespective of religion or belief system... from this one song alone, i consider him to be a holy man

This CD presents the magnificent voice of the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and some of his regular musical family playing with Western musicians, and treated to the "enhancements" of studio technicians and DJs. For those unfamiliar with him this may well be a knock-your-socks-off experience. However, for those who have been followers of Nusrat's career this is watered down stuff indeed. It is ironic that after the usual diddling/remixing which seems a necessary part of pop music recording today that the result should be such a limp product compared to his "old fashion" performances. Clearly producer Michael Brook simply wasnt up to dealing with the incandescent power of the real Nusrat. If you think this slick production is great stuff - listen to his untampered with qawwali recordings and have your heart medication handy, 'cause you ain't heard nothin yet!
