First-Ever Vinyl Reissue on 180g Double LP!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

First-ever vinyl reissue of critically acclaimed Saharan Tuareg group Tinariwen's third album, Aman Iman: Water Is Life. Released internationally via Independiente in 2007, reissued here on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl, the album was produced by longtime associate Justin Adams and features the voice and guitar of founding member Mohammed Ag Itlale. The GRAMMY® Award-winning collective perform a guitar-centric branch of Malian music known as Tishoumaren, a percussive, rock-oriented desert blues.

...although they're rightly lauded for their widescreen blues sound, what emerges most here is something they hinted at on the last record - they're a remarkable rock & roll band, too. The guitars, locked together in rhythm and lead, create a glorious syncopated noise that puts most rockers to shame. But there's a wonderful looseness to the sound (kudos to producer Justin Adams)...Recorded in the Malian capital of Bamako, these songs arrive with dust on their boots and a little thirsty. The studio touches are subtle, a little on the effects here and there, but never detract from the music...
-Chris Nickson,, 4/5 stars
