It's been a long time coming, their last album was in 2005, but the new album from Christendom's leading exponents of world music mashups was well worth the wait. It is a great example of their unique style of music fusing styles of world music - particularly Eastern or more specifically Middle-Eastern styles - with break-beats. However I did find that the tracks on this album jumped around in style a little too widely. Nevertheless the meaningfulness of the two raps stands out as racism is decried as we are reminded that Jesus wasn't white and western involvement in Iraq is criticised. Throughout the hypnotic up-tempo ambience of these tracks is imbued with rich ethnic styles to great effect.

Great offer, Vince! I got the CD just now and will listen soon. I hope it goes well for you.

This album still free to anyone who asks. So ask!

The album is still available as a downlaod from all the usual downlaod sites or on CD from some of them. The cheapest way to get it on CD, though, is to just ask us and we'll send it to you free of charge.

Still available, still free. Get it on CD from me or free download from Bandcamp. Lots of other free albums there too!

Hi Vince, if this is still available for free could I have a copy please? If so, how do we go about this?
Many thanks
