AllMusic Review by

Arabesque collects a wide range of music from electronica and worldbeat sources. The common factor among all the songs is either direct Arabic music influence or at least a strong Arabic feel. Songs by Alex Patterson of the Orb, MC Sultan, Natacha Atlas, and Steve Hillage (whose remix of the Stereo MC's' "Fever" is a highpoint of the disc) give listeners a nice introduction to the haunting and exciting sound of Arabic music.
