(c) 1992 by Celine Music/Synsound [BK 57840]
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

I recall laughing profusely as I skipped through the tracks. I did this a few more times. I made my friend come over and listen to it. We laughed profusely. Then we laughed and sang along with the music. Over time, we sang more and laughed (a little) less... and from there it is history.
This album reminds me of (one snippet) of my teenage days. It is great, unobtrusive background music that I find alternately soothing and nostalgically catchy. If that makes sense... music, so subjective!
(I lost my original disc quite a while ago. It made me pretty sad, but I eventually forgot about it. Then I found used copies that were really overpriced. Finally, I found a used one that was a great deal here on amazon. The case was banged up, but the disc and art are pristine. So happy!)
