5.0 out of 5 stars The best and most powerful of the Klezmatics genre June 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, the best of all the Klezmatics CDs. Both upbeat and sad. New and old. I loved how the Klezmatics create new melodies with the flavor of the old. The first track "Shprayz" is a rousing melody that builds up your expectations for the rest of the CD and delivers! "An Undoing World" is a beautiful modern song that pulls at your heritage strings and ties you to the immigrant generation. In the middle set is a score from "The Dybbuk", a group of songs with a common theme. The incredibly sad "Fradde's Song" had lyrics so powerful I cry everytime I hear it. The lyrics were too painful for my wife though, as they call to mind events where we wish the dead could join the living. No song has ever affected us in quite that way before. But the flow from that track into "Der Shvartser" will lift your spirits again. I have heard this CD literally hundreds of times, yet it affects me the same way every time! Powerful music with the Klezmatics at their best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Textured and beautiful April 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm mainly writing this review because I was surprised to read some of the others, and thought I would offer forth something of a different opinion. I've discovered Klezmer music over the last two years or so, and this is definitely one of my favorite albums. The Klezmatics really shine here. I personally find the English-language ballads, with lyrics by Tony Kushner, to be heartbreaking and beautiful. "Dispossession by attrition/is the permanent condition/that the wretched modern world endures", from An Undoing World, is just one of the lines that resonates with me. The fiddle playing of Alicia Svigals is, as always, mesmerizing (though as far as I know, she is no longer with the Klezmatics). The instrumental tracks range from frentic to melancholy, and the whole of the album is a joyful listen. The liner notes by Tony Kushner are also worth the read. I would recommend this album to someone familiar with Klezmer, to someone who has never heard Klezmer, and to anyone who likes a well-written song. Some of the slower songs may take awhile to grow on ya', but in the end, I believe you'll find that they do, and that the power they possess (no pun intended, a-ha, ha-ha) make it well worth the time spent listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny, poignant, mystical, terrific! March 31, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite cds, in any genre. I especially love Lorin's clear voice and Alicia's violin. The songs range in tone from boisterous to contemplative to hypnotic. My kids (ages 12, 9, 4) love it too. The Klezmatics are so good at making it eclectic and yet retaining the essential Jewishness of their music. Another terrific cd, the Klezmatics collaboration with Chava Alberstein, "The Well."

5.0 out of 5 stars contemporary & traditional May 3, 2002
By Nadine
Format:Audio CD
This album is an amazing approach to tradition in a most creative, original and modern way. It is, at the same time, full of life, joy and haunting memories. The "Dybbuck" songs are the best stage music written for this play; with a sepulchral and contemplative quality, the music enhances this classical legend in a way that could be matched only by an expressionist vision of staging it. The other klezmer songs are funny and full of vitality in the way they address a humble past in the "shtetl", with people toiling for their lives, always in debt, whose revenge and solace were a few drinks on Shabbat.
This CD is food for the mind and the soul. It even made the long, long drive from NYC to Buffalo on the New York Thruway a breeze!

Agreed that this is one of group's most dynamic albums. It also gets bonus points by having original pieces by Tony Kushner in it.
