Editorial Reviews

Worlds Within is a deep dub groove based transglobal journey into the mysterious downtempo moods of Govinda. This exotic exploration weaves in and out of pure blissful electronica alongside worldbeat trip hop arrangements as sexy chilled beats create a backdrop for the inner musings of a true musical pioneer. Always pushing the envelope with his unique sound, Govinda shares his creative talents as violinist, poet and groove gypsy on this sound sculpted erotic caravan.

Infused with elements of the gypsy violin and sounds of far eastern passions this stylish foray into western modern music invites us into the worlds within of Govinda.

4.0 out of 5 stars Govinda is evolving... January 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Although the most recent offering from Govinda can barely hold a flame and keep it lit next to such masterpieces as 'Oh Earthly Gods', 'Entwined & Entranced', and maybe even 'Erotic Rhythms From Earth', I am happy to report that 'Worlds Within' is a step above Shane O'Madden's last studio recording, 'Echoes of Eden', which to me sounded rushed, uninspired, and rather disappointing to my biased ears. Coming from some other artist I probably would have enjoyed what I heard a lot more but in his case I have come to expect a certain standard of excellence and knew that he was capable of doing much better.

It was with the release of 'Erotic Rhythms From Earth' that I started detecting a slight shift in sound. However, after a brief hiatus, he emerged like a butterfly with a complete musical transformation (not to mention a new label), only he hasn't fully spread his wings yet. Now, I don't know whether that has anything to do with the change in style or not but if you were to listen to one of his earlier albums along with one of his newer ones back to back, you'd swear they were completely different groups (and please be aware that there are in fact two Govinda's here on Amazon). The only recognizable feature is his trademark violin playing. With 'Worlds Within' he seems to have put more effort into his work, though, as it sounds more thought-provoking and evocative. The chilled electronic beats are served fresh with some exotic gypsy/western (mostly Indian) influences, as well as the occasional female cooing that sound less like a watered down version of Karsh Kale and more like an evolution into something grand, and I am more than ready to embark on this journey.

The genious within multi-faceted Shane O'Madden has thus returned and is prayerfully here to awe us with further musings of enticing beauty and hypnotic world grooves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Govinda's Magical Worlds Within March 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Wow....I don't think an album has entranced me this much since the first Enigma album from 1990....no, change that: since 1994's "Pure" by The Golden Palominos....Anyway, I'm a total newbie to the music of Govinda (real name Shane O'Madden). I came across "Worlds Within" while it was playing in a music store recently, and I was instantly hooked on it. This is a *fantastic* album: hypnotic, seductive, sensual, hypnotising, atmospheric....in other words, the kind of music I absolutely go for. The way Govinda weaves dub, electronica, world, pop, and new age into one glorious tapestry of music is just breathtaking. I can't even spotlight a single track for you: "Worlds Within" comes across to me like a single, 53-minute musical opus divided into twelve parts. All I can tell you is that this is magnificently sensual music. Govinda is a brilliantly talented musician, composer & producer, and I definitely plan to check out some more of his work. In the meantime, buy "Worlds Within." Turn out the lights, and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intoxcating Grooves October 7, 2004
By Max
Format:Audio CD
What a brilliant record! The downtemponess of this record infused with ambient electronica gives me chills. You have got to give this new Govinda cd more than one listen. The more you hear it the more it grows on you. An excellent blend of worldbeat elements with downtempo violin chillout allows this album to breathe from beginning to end. This is a journey into intoxication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip, Sexy & Cool October 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Govinda's for quite a fwe years now and have followed him from record to record. This is his newest cd release and by far this one encompasses the past as well as the present. A masterpiece of highly crafted songs with enough eroticism and hip selections to make this one of the best chillout downtempo records of this year. If you are not familiar with Govinda's work, then at least listen to some of the music on this cd. From the first track, Charming the Serpent to City of Peace and onto the sexy track Feel You, this record is an all around excellent release. Toss aside all your other ethnic based chillout records and let Worlds Within by Govinda make you a believer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Artist making Amazing Music March 1, 2006
By Charles
Format:Audio CD
Ok..case point Govinda...the master of sensual groove poetry. For those of you who have not seen his live show or heard of him, this musician is truly gifted. Worlds Within is a perfect Govinda sound for those who want to hear what the hype is all about. The blend of electronica, worldbeat and mood make this artists music hip and stylish. I wish more people understood what Govinda was about. Listen, Hear, Tune In and you will know what i am talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars SPLASH OF EMOTIONS November 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
As all Govinda's previous albums, this new album is a splash of emotions. From the moment you insert the CD in your player until the end of last track you'll explore different/unusual feelings. All tracks runs like one continuous adventure. The title for this album is really true - you will visit the worlds within... yourself?

Govinda has truly evolved. This new CD is amazing. The way Govinda combines seductive voices, gypsy violin, and down-tempo beats really moves me. I cannot stay away from this cd. It also inspired me to create again. Thank you Govinda

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite album by Govinda! March 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Shane O'Madden's fifth album under the moniker of Govinda is my favorite album that he has released so far in his highly prolific career. Those who liked "O Earthly Gods" may need to give Worlds Within a good listen as this is nothing like the debut from a long time ago was but those who loved "Erotic Rhythms" will love this one. In fact, Worlds is as the title says, worlds better than the debut. In fact, I almost find it hard to believe that this is the same artist who did the eerie and bizarre tracks on the "Gods" album. "Love Glitch" is a beautiful groove combining electronic sound effects with a beautiful 70s sort of R&B sound. "Charming The Serpent" is a Dallas Texas on a hazy sunset afternoon theme as is it's following track. There is no other album like this.
