AllMusic Review by

A hard-hitting overview of a variety of gritty, hardworking Egyptian pop, it mixes elements of bazaar culture with Eurodisco technocraft. The disc is divided equally between uptown and street styles. It contains "Elli Shatr Enhaa Tgannen," the naughty newlywed rap that had Cairo's elders blushing.
