Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

From the very first notes, the juju music of King Sunny Ade is instantly identifiable. The musicians lock into a groove and don't let it go until the song ends--and given that the tracks on this album give all musicians a chance to stretch out (unlike, say, 1995's E Dide), that can be a while. But it's a pliable, irresistible groove, powered by the percussion and talking drums, which also pop up to punctuate and accent the music, while the Hammond organ and pedal steel guitar take most of the solos with King Sunny himself at the center of things, singing and directing his large band. It's a joyful noise they make, often quite literally, as a number of these pieces are "praise songs," part of the juju tradition ("Congratulations (Happy Birthday)" offers an idea of the praise song in English.) This is his most enjoyable record in a long time, better than the excellent Odu, and if you can resist the urge to dance, check your pulse--you might be dead. --Chris Nickson

5.0 out of 5 stars King Sunny's return to top form October 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally a recording that is as good as Juju Music. This is high praise from me. I love KSA, see the band whenever they come through town, and own all of his records I can get my hands on. But, for me, the best recording of his to date was Juju Music. This is as good. And, believe me, that is a very high standard. Joyful music with all of the elements of great Juju. Appreciation is my personal favorite song on this record, but song after song, these are beautifully sung and performed tunes. Excellent pedal steel performance, and amazing talking drum work. I wish it didn't end.

5.0 out of 5 stars KING SUNNY ADE HAS DONE IT YET AGAIN June 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
WITH THE RELEASE OF THIS ALBUM KSA IS DEFINITELY IN A CLASS OF HIS OWN IN WORLD MUSIC. MY FAVOURITE TRACK IS APPRECIATION. HOWEVER, ALL THE TRACKS ARE GOOD. THE ALBUM IS MORE MELLOW THAN HIS PREVIOUS CDS, ODU AND GET UP. MY GUESS IS THAT THIS ONE IS CERTAINLY ANOTHER GRAMMY NOMINEE IF NOT EVEN A GRAMMY AWARD. THE TUNES ARE A BLEND OF HIGH LIFE, SAMBA, AND JUJU MUSIC ALL BLENDED TO GIVE LOVELY HARMONIOUS MUSIC FOR LISTENING AND DANCING.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of Cool January 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I would have to say I like this CD, but it is certainly not as good as some of Sunny's previous work. I do listen to this disc often, but I mostly put in on as background music. The songs just don't hold my interest enough. The instrumental hook on the first track is pretty catchy, but after that most of the songs just seem to blend together. The musicianship throughout is quite good. There are great vocal harmonies, and cool Nigerian percussion grooves. I do have to commend the production crew. Sonically everything sounds great. It's recorded and mixed so that you can really hear every nuance, and there's a lot going on so that's an accomplishment. The only real drawback here is just the songs. It's not that they're bad, just not great. I liked Sunny's previous CD, "Odu", a lot better.
