All Music Guide - Tammy La Gorce
Countless fans have been introduced to Krishna Das through yoga classes, where his soothing rhythmic chants, preformed in a deep, rich timbre, complement instruction on the spiritual element of the exercise. Only those students inclined toward extra credit, though, are likely to know that the former Jeffrey "K.D." Kagel, renamed Krishna Das after years of studying alongside his guru, Mahara ji, in India, is a one-time rock singer from Long Island, N.Y. All One, Krishna's ninth CD, delivers inward-looking listeners that much closer to recognizing the chant master's unlikely background on their own, though.

All Music Guide - Tammy La Gorce
Countless fans have been introduced to Krishna Das through yoga classes, where his soothing rhythmic chants, preformed in a deep, rich timbre, complement instruction on the spiritual element of the exercise. Only those students inclined toward extra credit, though, are likely to know that the former Jeffrey "K.D." Kagel, renamed Krishna Das after years of studying alongside his guru, Mahara ji, in India, is a one-time rock singer from Long Island, N.Y. All One, Krishna's ninth CD, delivers inward-looking listeners that much closer to recognizing the chant master's unlikely background on their own, though. Essentially an hour-long melodic recitation of the name Hare Krishna set to accompaniment that ranges from Indian to classical to rock in style, the disc makes use of several rock & roll heavy hitters. Co-produced with Walter Becker Steely Dan, Jay Messina Aerosmith, and David Nichtern who wrote "Midnight at the Oasis", All One finds Becker on bass, Nichtern on guitar, and Def Leppard's Rick Allen on drums. Which accounts for why, even on more sedate tracks, a certain rock energy seeps through. That Krishna Das manages that influence without allowing the disc to become a mongrelized slab of meditation-lite -- it's quite listenable in a head-clearing sort of way -- is a testament, maybe, to the concept that his burnished, entrancing voice comes from a place purer than most.

    Makes You One With Everything

    This whole album rendition of Hare Krishna Hare Rama is an exalted spiritual experience waiting to happen. Each movement of this four part work stands on its own: an introduction building to a summit, with a graceful close. Yet each of the first three movements leads to and is connected to the next. The instrumentation changes from one to the next, and each one takes the listener higher. The final movement is a total celebration, a fantastic dance party complete with a trumpet, flute, other instruments, and a near-calypso sounding tapestry of outstanding percussion. This album is the fulfillment of my wish to have an extended chant with Krishna Das, and so much more. Its ebbs and flows, builds in multiple dimensions, and then relaxes. The result is a great work that leads the listener on an odyssey, exploring the many emotions of life, the many ways and times in which we call out to God. It’s well worth participating in this chant with Krishna Das, the sublime Kirtan Wala. As George Harrison said, “Everything else can wait, but the search for God cannot wait.” This album is a rewarding step forward in that great search.
