The great – and ridiculously prolific – Pakistani qawwali singer had already recorded half a dozen albums for Real World when he delivered this peach in 1996. Effectively the sequel to 1990’s classic Mustt Mustt, Nusrat is here reunited with the Canadian musician/producer Michael Brook and once again the partnership tests the emotional boundaries of the human voice. Timeless, state-less and, nearly two decades on, ageless. It wasn’t made in Detroit or Memphis, but this truly is soul music.
A quite sensational slow-burner of an album…
…Nusrats incredible vocal control and gift for wending his way round an evocative melody is bolstered by Brooks sensitive ambient, gently beat-based arrangements … no-one deserves the extra exposure more than this peerless singer.
