I didnt even know Cat had a new album coming out. what a surprise it was for me to see it listed on the page a few days ago. Just got the record today. It is astonishingly great from beginning to end. In just over 30 minutes, like the old records used to be, Cat sings of Love, Hope, the pain of being abandoned and seeking of a better life in goodwill towards others. His acoustic playing is second to none. I can't pick a favorite, they are all classics to me. The instrumental final track is a beauty, like a theme song to a movie. And All Kind of Roses is a man laying bare his soul...Love it.

This is a wonderful collection of songs with thoughtful lyrics - Yusuf/Cat Stevens' voice is still warm and strong. This CD is worthy of a Grammy nomination.

Really enjoyed the early Cat Stevens stuff and liked this too, though not quite as well. But its hard to compete with his early work and I haven't listened to this CD near as much, so over time it might grow on me more. Overall, I would buy this again with no hesitation.

Well, I guess I shouldn't have expected it to be like the 70's. I used to love listening to Cat Stevens and was rather mystified when he went off the religious deep end. I've missed him all these years and was delighted to see him on the Colbert Report, singing once again. Although I knew he was still strongly religious, I thought he had come back to doing music for the masses. And while this album is certainly listenable and not extremely heavy as far as making religious statements, it's just a bit too much for me. I suppose if you like listening to christian rock you might like this, since it's not exactly muslim-specific in its references. But as an atheist, it's not my cup of tea. Sorry, Yusuf, I wish you well, but we're on divergent paths.

This is as close to the 70's Cat Stevens as you will get. Excellent new effort!

Yusuf picks out thematic music from his past as Cat Stevens and answers in song. "Be What You Are" is an answer to "Sitting." CS fans will love this album for it tells of Yusuf's spiritual journey and shares the wisdom of a mature poet and shaman. Thank you Yusuf.

New Cat Stevens with an acknowledgement that time has passed but it's all good. Loved the one about choosing the road that you were supposed to. It's great for all ages - but especially those of us with things to look back on...

Being a Cat Stevens fan from my early days in high school, it was great to see him record again after nearly 30 years off the circuit. Besides the name change the music remains the same. If you are a true fan you must add this to your collection.

This is one of the best albums Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam) has put out since Tea for the Tillerman! A fabulous creation and so good to hear that strong voice, profound story telling and great accoustical guitar again!!! I love every song on the album and I hope Yusuf continues to go down the familiar path that all of his old fans identify him with. This album gets raves from me!I can't stop listening to it!

What a terrible waste of money, time, effort, etc. All the tracks sound the same: dismal, depressed, hopeless, without a touch of humanity. Is Yusef suicidal or just trying to drive listeners to extreme measures? Is it possible to rate this 0 stars?
