The pieces on this album reach into the netherworld between Eastern and Western musical traditions; the Hijaz melodies of the Midde-East, the Raga of Indian folk, the Tuareg blues of the Sahara, the spiritual sonics of Krautrock, and fuses it all with the power and the fury of rock.
Return To Bam Citadel, the opener, transports you half way across the world into a trek across the Sahara where a wrong turn suddenly drops you in the middle of an Indian Buddhist temple. While the first single off the album, Moroccan Dive Bar, is the perfect fusion between Tennessee blues/rock and the sounds of the Marrakesh nightlife. I couldn’t help but think Late Night Boat Across the Dead Sea felt like the end of a long romance that should have never began. A great stand out was also Mosquito Coast, a fast tempered song that resembles the beating of the rhythm of two lovers through time.
