All Music Guide - Stacia Proefrock
Aided by nearly two dozen guest musicians, this effort from the Afrocelts aka the Afro-Celt Sound System veers off in a slightly different direction from previous releases.

CMJ New Music Report
An example of what can happen when cultural bridges are crossed, and borders erased...Seed supports the universal truism that there's more to be gained by unity than division.

    Excellent!!

    This is an amazing cd, in some ways even better than those before it. I've been continually amazed by the new sounds the Afrocelts present. It's like an adventure. I can't wait to hear what they come up with next!
