AllMusic Review by

N'Dour's ongoing quest for a truly global African pop spurs his smoothest -- you might say most homogenized -- disc yet, one that basks in assimilation and transformation. He is becoming to mbalax what Milton Nascimento is to Brazilian, which means a gain in sophistication but a certain loss of directness.
