The fun doesnt stop with Shuffering though. Sade's track is a standout and Femi Kuti does his daddy proud. Buy this CD, your ears will thank you.
Every track on the album flows together so well. I especially appreciated the "interlude" tracks. From track 1 you are pulled in to the vibrant full Afrobeat sound and gradually shuffled through to the reflective Fela ambiance by track 20. I have immediately fallen in love with track 17/18, By Your Side (Sade) remix...just a beautiful track (by far the best remix of this song that I've heard).
If you can't tell by now, I highly recommend this album. I also recommend Antibalas' albums for some more "authentic" Afrobeat sound (of course Fela's albums aren't too shabby either ;-) I've also seen Antibalas live and they put on a great show!
Worth-while buy. It has yet to leave my disc changer. Mellow, captivating& inspirational.
