Buddha-Bar Presents: Amnesty International 40th Anniversary

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
The cause is one well-worthy of support, as Amnesty International celebrates 40 years. And the music here is set to appeal to what is probably the organization's core following: the baby boomers. The music has a hip edge, mixing electronica and world music, especially on the first disc, without being overpowering or threatening; sometimes, in fact, it seems more like the soundtrack for a meal at a fashionable restaurant rather than music for serious listening (to be fair, it is called Peace). However, the final five tracks on disc one have some real meat, beginning with Nitin Sawhney's take on the Asian underground. Egyptian star Amr Diab brings new flavors in with his ...

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
The cause is one well-worthy of support, as Amnesty International celebrates 40 years. And the music here is set to appeal to what is probably the organization's core following: the baby boomers. The music has a hip edge, mixing electronica and world music, especially on the first disc, without being overpowering or threatening; sometimes, in fact, it seems more like the soundtrack for a meal at a fashionable restaurant rather than music for serious listening (to be fair, it is called Peace). However, the final five tracks on disc one have some real meat, beginning with Nitin Sawhney's take on the Asian underground. Egyptian star Amr Diab brings new flavors in with his sha'bi style, and Mo'Horizons turns on the Latin beat before semi-classical diva Sarah Brightman chills it out with some Rachmaninov. Disc two, which is "blended and mixed by Frank Nigel", is more upbeat, but ends up being even more anonymous (and at times extremely annoying, like the stuttering repeated beat on "Thierr Mi Ti Ai"). In part that's because it falls between two stools. It's not music for the chill-out room, intended to be calming and soothing, but neither is it really meant for the dancefloor, so nothing's booming and banging. Most dance music -- and it's certainly true of the majority of the 13 tracks here -- isn't made for listening. There are exceptions, like Dorjee's "Mantra Chanting," which brings in Tuvan throat singing to help satisfyingly fill out the bones of the track. Overall, it's a mixed bag, a little too smooth and slick to be completely musically successful -- although, perhaps ironically, its very smoothness will help it find its audience. And, the bottom line remains the fact that the cause is good.
