Overview

The rock world again shows its philanthropic side on the Mantra Mix collection. Sixteen pop artists, ranging in stature from Madonna to Leftfield, contributed songs to the compilation, royalties for which will go to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an aid organization for Tibetan refugees across the world. Although most of the tracks have been previously released, the music is as good as the cause. Veteran songbirds Sinéad O'Connor and Natalie Merchant are at their loveliest on "This Is to Mother You" and "Seven Years," respectively, while Madonna plays the geisha well on the Japanese-tinged electronic gem "Shanti/Ashtangi." Other highlights include a track from Scottish next big things Travis, the comely, Luna-esque "The Connection" (previously unreleased in the U.S.); Massive Attack's especially trippy trip-hop nugget "Angel"; Ben Harper's sweet, sparse "One Road to Freedom"; and the Chemical Brothers' pulsating, ethereal "One Too Many Mornings," plus remixes from Peter Gabriel and R.E.M. that are otherwise unavailable in the U.S., a previously unreleased song from David Byrne, and familiar tunes from Moby and Fatboy Slim. For spiritual and educational purposes, Mantra Mix comes with a bonus enhanced disc, which features a videotaped speech by the charismatic Dalai Lama, information about Tibet, meditations, and, of course, more music. This batch is more atmospheric, featuring a composition by Philip Glass, a chant by Namgyal Monks, and a prayer sung by the Dalai Lama himself. How's that for variety?

In support of Tibetan issues comes the solid various artists collection from Narada entitled Mantra Mix. This double-disc release includes a bonus CD that features a video of the Dalai Lama, and all proceeds will go to benefit the Tibetan refugee support organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). Certainly an all-star cast of music contributors, Mantra Mix features cuts from Travis, Madonna, R.E.M., Fatboy Slim, Ben Harper, and more. The bonus disc also includes previously unavailable cuts from electronic gurus Junkie XL and Chris Hinze, and material by composer Philip Glass.
