All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
Atlas' second solo record -- for some strange reason never released in America, where the first and third were -- continues in her vein of excellent Arabic singing combined with a wide variety of musical traditions, modern and ancient. Working with four distinct cowriting/production groups this time around, including her collaborators in Transglobal Underground in one group and, in another, Killing Joke mainman Jaz Coleman pursuing his other interest in orchestrations, Atlas again creates an intoxicating series of love songs, all sung in Arabic but with lyrical snippets printed in English. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most technological and dancefloor-friendly numbers are ...

All Music Guide - Ned Raggett
Atlas' second solo record -- for some strange reason never released in America, where the first and third were -- continues in her vein of excellent Arabic singing combined with a wide variety of musical traditions, modern and ancient. Working with four distinct cowriting/production groups this time around, including her collaborators in Transglobal Underground in one group and, in another, Killing Joke mainman Jaz Coleman pursuing his other interest in orchestrations, Atlas again creates an intoxicating series of love songs, all sung in Arabic but with lyrical snippets printed in English. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most technological and dancefloor-friendly numbers are done with the Transglobal crowd, who work on about half the album's tracks. "Moustahil" and "Amulet" both feature shuffling dance beats and loops along with a number of performers on such instruments as oud and dharabuka, plus energetic backing vocals from duo Sawt El Atlas. Coleman's tracks, "Enogoom Wil Amar" and "Andeel," equally deserve notice for Atlas' vocals and his own striking, lush arrangements, while her collaboration with Egyptian musician/orchestra leader Essam Rashad, "Ya Albi Ehda," is a beauty in the vein of older Arabic popular music. No matter who's working with her performing what, though, it's Atlas' show all the way, her singing shimmering out with all the beauty one could ever want in a vocalist.

    The best of the Atlas Collection!

    This album is truly amazing! You can listen to it from start to finish at least two or even three times. Great album to bellydance to. It's enchanting, energetic, mezmerizing, and very exciting to listen to. The lyrics are beautiful and very poetic. The type of album you listen to when you are in love, enchanted, and want to have fun.

    Natacha Atlas - ''Halim''

    A truly great record by an amazing artist. I first heard this record in a music store (by pure chance) and I have been a fan ever since. ''Halim'' blends middle-eastern and electronic music using both traditional, and modern instruments in a tastefull and provocative style. What realy makes the record however, is the smooth, passionate, and wonderfully exotic vocal style of Natacha Atlas. This record is a must for fans of Arabic/middle-eastern music and a great introduction for those who are not too familiar with the style. A+
