AllMusic Review by

Take one part electronic rhythm throb, courtesy of jungle, and one part bhangra, slam together and get shaken mightily by the end result. The ten-track collection is an initially interesting mix-up, with a great many of the reggae elements of bhangra exploding forth from the thunderous jungle rhythms (the Indian elements of bhangra tend to get woven into the rhythms), but it starts to get a little more wearing than likable somewhere aorund the midpoint. The style itself is interesting, with a lot going on, but it's guaranteed that it won't fit the tastes of everyone who's into either bhangra or jungle. The best showings here come from Pammi ("Sarke Sarke") and Shava Shava ("Southall Wich Nachdi"), but your mileage may vary.
