Door of Faith

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Krishna Das continues his spiritual albums, mixing Indian inflections with a Western base which comes in the way the songs are constructed, often owing a lot to folk music. Produced by Rick Rubin, this has a wonderful, full sound with some excellent touches, like the emotional cello on "Sita's Prayer." It's a very slow album -- the pieces blooming gradually like flowers -- intended to give its pleasure over time rather than in a single play. While this is obviously a commercial venture, it's also a labor of love and devotion. And make no mistake, it is a truly lovely disc, accessible in its structures in fact, "Shri Hanuman Chaleesa" would be a rock song if it had a drum ...

Produced by Rick Rubin, this has a wonderful, full sound with some excellent touches, like the emotional cello on "Sita's Prayer." It's a very slow album -- the pieces blooming gradually like flowers -- intended to give its pleasure over time rather than in a single play. While this is obviously a commercial venture, it's also a labor of love and devotion. And make no mistake, it is a truly lovely disc, accessible in its structures in fact, "Shri Hanuman Chaleesa" would be a rock song if it had a drum kit and its style, thanks in part to Rubin and his experience. This would be excellent as a meditation aid, but it also transcends that to become a fascinating listening experience throughout. Das sounds like Tom Waits without the voice cracks, which is no bad thing -- his voice is somewhat hypnotic, as befits the music he's making. The underlying sample a processed voice? on the last track adds texture to what's really a country song in disguise, altering it completely. A record that's an experience in every possible way.
