5.0 out of 5 stars Bedouin Soundclash delivers!!!
The fellas from Bedouin Soundclash produce a sonic amalgam composed of equal parts rhythm, melody, and lyrical genius on their new album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neither good nor bad... at this point.
There's no denying that "When the Night Feels My Song" is absolutely catchy, immediately familiar ("Say, is that Paul Simon?"), the type of song that catches your attention each time it plays on the radio. But I fear that some of the reviews here may be overhyped. (Seems the Bedouin Soundclash have some very fervent friends on the Internet, judging...

This review is from: Sounding a Mosaic (Audio CD)
The fellas from Bedouin Soundclash produce a sonic amalgam composed of equal parts rhythm, melody, and lyrical genius on their new album. They effectively deliver a series of lyrically rich tracks which satisfy their fans' ravenous musical appetite. Their sweet melodies leave once-starved listeners satisfied and searching for more of their "musical crack rock". Pengelly delivers delicious drum beats with a maturity and discipline reminiscent of a tibetan monk. Sinclair's thumping bass confronts the most passive listener and says "rise to the occasion or prepare for a hearty serving of sonic subordination, okay?". Finally, Malinowski's smooth vocals provide a lyrical adhesive like no other. In short, this album will knock you on your arse, place you in a musical chokehold, and then force you to confront many prevalent social issues. Are you ready?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous band, June 13 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sounding A Mosaic (Audio CD)
I originally heard this band at a Ben Harper concert. Then, I heard them again on the radio on CBC with Tom Powers. I have a CD deck that holds six CDs in my car. It never leaves the deck!!! Great music to sail to as well :)

This review is from: Sounding a Mosaic (Audio CD)
There's no denying that "When the Night Feels My Song" is absolutely catchy, immediately familiar ("Say, is that Paul Simon?"), the type of song that catches your attention each time it plays on the radio. But I fear that some of the reviews here may be overhyped. (Seems the Bedouin Soundclash have some very fervent friends on the Internet, judging from some sites and discussions.) I truly believe the album as a whole doesn't deserve five stars, especially when you compare it to, say, Amadou & Miriam's "Dimanche a Bamako" which came out the same year. This is not to pull a "Canada vs. Senegal" snub, but there is immediately identifiable filler on this album, whereas DaB seems to overflow with ideas and selections (and even runs longer). A good album (three stars) will help sustain a mood once you're already in it. A great album (five stars) is able to pull nearly anybody into the mood it wishes to convey, turning itself into something absolutely universal and not letting go until the album is complete. Here, only three or four songs leap out, including the leadoff track, "Jed Rand" and "Nothing to Say". But people who cherish reggae and dub styles most may find this to be one of the worthy releases of 2005 (It just doesn't beat DaB, truly a five-star album, in my book.) If it's any consolation, Bob Marley is best musically remembered by most people for his "Legend" collection. This gives the Bedouin Soundclash a window of opportunity: record eight albums or so, put the best on a compilation programmed for hot summer days and nights, and see how legendary it becomes (if you will pardon the pun).

4.0 out of 5 stars Quelllll cd!!!!, Feb. 5 2006
By 
This review is from: Sounding a Mosaic (Audio CD)
Wow, quel band! Bonne ambiance du début à la fin. Un disque à mettre à côté de "Travelling without moving" de Jamiroquai dans sa discographie. Ça groove; belle complicité entre la basse et la batterie, voix nous rappellant le défunt Bob Marley. Les mélodies sont recherchées.
Il est incroyablement intéressant de constater que la musique candienne peut autant se dénaturer et demeurer
autant envoutante!
Incontournable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never a bad time to listen to this CD, Nov. 1 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Sounding a Mosaic (Audio CD)
The music is simple and upbeat but instantly enjoyable. I can listen to this CD cover to cover and enjoy the whole thing. Warning, it's not terribly edgy or controversial if that's your thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cd from an excellent band, Oct. 6 2005

Alyssa (Northern B.C.) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Sounding a Mosaic (Audio CD)
This is an excellent cd from an excellent band. Their sound is so unique and easy to listen to compared to all of the other music out there. The drumming is good, as with the guitar work, but it's the bass guitar and the vocals that really stand out.
Sounding a Mosaic is great from start to finish with no weak songs. Among my favourites are: When the Night Feels My Song, Shelter, Shadow of a Man, and Nothing to Say
