(...) A work of great beauty ... an album for the ages, defying genre and solidifying Khan'’s stature as one of the world'’s pre-eminent singers (...)
(...) Michael Brook is...an unmistakeably original producer who knows how to put a great vocal instrument into a stunning new context...this is a truly great record (...)
(...) A quite sensational slow-burner of an album ... Nusrat’'s incredible vocal control and gift for wending his way round an evocative melody is bolstered by Brook’'s sensitive ambient, gently beat-based arrangements ... no-one deserves the extra exposure more than this peerless singer (...)
The late, great - and ridiculously prolific - Pakistani qawwali singer had already recorded half a dozen albums for Real World when he delivered this peach in 1996.
Effectively the sequel to 1990's classic Mustt Mustt, Nusrat is here reunited with the Canadian musician/producer Michael Brook and once again the partnership tests the emotional boundaries of the human voice.
Timeless, state-less and, nearly two decades on, ageless. It wasn't made in Detroit or Memphis, but this truly is soul music
