    I don't rate music very often, but this album is genius. The compositions have a timeless folk quality that would lend themselves to a wide variety of occasions, helped by the wide variety of acoustic instruments that they are played with. You can imagine hearing this music at weddings, funerals, wherever human emotion is at the forefront of proceedings.

    Pretty good stuff here. Even more enjoyable than his previous two.

  1. Another stellar song collection.
  2. The potency of AHAAH's genres of choice are both the album’s difficulty and strength; if you aren’t partial to Balkan brass, klezmer or mariachi, abandon all hope of sticking this one out.

    Vivid, diverse and faintly trippy. [Nov 2006, p.99]
