Indestructible Asian Beats: Urban Tigers
I remember seeing this nugget @ Virgin a cupla months ago, and I almost bought it. I really liked a few songs on it. They were what we in the music industry term 'winners.'
But, there were also a few complete crap-tracks that stood in the way of buying this compilation. Their presence on the this spliff totally ruined it for me, and I didn't buy it until I found it in the used bin @ Other Records, deciding the lowered price would make up for the number of times I would have to hit the forward button on my player.
Tala Quintet's "Na Da": I like it, but after 10 listens it starts to chafe. Skipped.
Talvin's "Jaan" makes it's ubiquitous appearance, but I've had enough of it. Skipped.
Punjabi MC's "Bheer": most people can't stand the cackling. Skipped.
TJ Rehmi's "Who Killed Bhangra?": I don't know and I don't care. Skipped.
Ananda Shankar's "Streets Of Calcutta": an Indian Austin Powers is funny only ONCE. Skipped.
