I thought I had listened to good music throughout my life. Boy was I wrong.

Now that I've heard PFC3: Songs Around The World, I don't need to find new music. This is it. I would prioritize this album alongside other survival essentials such as fresh water, antibiotics, and nutrient-rich foods.

Seriously, anyone who looks past this album and doesn't give it a listen is scientifically proven to live a less happy and fulfilling life.

Thank God for Playing For Change.

The first two Playing for Change albums are brilliant. Without hesitation I purchased this one based on the excellence of the first two. I didn't even look at the track or artist list. I assumed it would be good and I wanted to be surprised. I put in the DVD and, song after song, I was delighted with the song selection and the musicians for the most part. "La Bamba" -- fantastic version of this song. "Words of Wonder" -- strong song, but I could do without Keith Richards on it. "Reggae Got Soul" -- ok, but nothing magical. It lacks the energy of the original and is my least favorite song on the album. Then with the final four songs the magic of the first two albums began. "Down By the Riverside" featuring Grandpa Elliot is ridiculously good. Then my socks were knocked off. "A Better Place" is quite simply amazing. Glen David Andrews absolutely kills it on this song. What a performance! Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" is next. I wasn't sure it would be possible to do justice to such a great song and sweet voice as that of Marvin. PFC manages to do just that. Such a great rendition of a great song. Closing things out is an extended version of "Guantanamera," featuring 75 Cubans from around the world. In true PFC style they make it work wonderfully.

While I think that the first two PFC albums are stronger than this third one, the songs on PFC 3 are still really good and the album is easily worth 5 stars out of 5. It would have been nice to have two or three additional songs as well. Of course that is just me being selfish since I love the music of PFC so much. Also, by all means be sure to watch the DVD. Seeing the musicians and the background visuals add a tremendous amount to the songs and provide good context. Big thanks to the PFC crew for their continuation of this awesome project. I look forward to Playing for Change 4.

This is it. I mean, I love music, there is a lot of music I like. Now here comes real music, from all over the world. My favourite is Guantanamera, played and sung by Cubans from around the world, just great. But then there is also La Bamba, Down by the Riverside...... all those alltime songs we loved, performed by fantastic artists, definitely dancable, also with a lot of soul (not only reggae got soul :-) ), I just can't stop listening to this CD.

I do recommend to also get the DVD, when you see these people playing/singing you begin to know what music is all about. I have met these people before on PFC2, and that was great, this one is even better.

This is it, yep. One love.

The least "authentic" collection from PFC yet. Less street sound and more "famous names" sound. Overall comes off as a pretty good jam by a pretty good band, but nothing special. Their formula of taking fairly well known songs and embellishing them with a number of distinctive musicians and styles is not working particularly well for them on this release.

There couldn't be a better combination of both music and children's benefits all over the world.

Playing for Change is a world wide non-profit.

After hearing the first CD, I bought the 3rd, thinking it would be the same great music. Was I surprised !
I gave it a chance, listened to each song. I will be re-selling mine. I feel bad giving it only 1 Star so I gave it 2.
But its a stretch.

Great music. The best, rousing and rocking version of "Down By The Riverside" I ever heard! And the CD comes with a DVD that shows the recording of several cuts, plus a couple that didn't make the CD.

On top of all that, part of the profit goes to help build music schools in poor countries around the world. For so many questions/crises, education is the answer. And surely music education enriches the heart and soul, along with its other benefits.

This CD is definitely not up to par with PC1 or PC2. Where the first two were quite enjoyable, both 5 star rating for me, and found myself listening to repeatedly but this one just did not rock my boat like the former ones. I still do not regret purchasing the CD as it very much serves a very worthy cause
