Quotes

Selected reactions to Lee Negin's "Hungry Ghosts" album:

"Mixture of ambient and electro pop. Very much a mind-bending trip of sounds. Outstanding album -- great on loud systems."

--Paul Readman, Music World Radio 1

"The whole album is a floating trip of sounds and vocals that takes you to another place."
--Demand Records, U.K.

"Lee Negin is hitting what seems to be yet another apex in his music career."
--Chris Constantino, SonicTribe Network

"Sometimes people who have had near-death experiences say that they are taken to a place where their entire life flashes before their eyes, and in 'The Dance,' that's what I felt."

--Sheena Metal, LATalkRadio

"A stimulating listen. So take some time to ponder intellectual relativity and the space aliens living in your inner ear."

--John Shelton Ivany Top 21

"Hearing this artist's expertly produced work is to experience a vision aimed beyond the realm of pop. ...Negin never offers the same sound twice, employing singers as ensemble instruments and working with sounds in a way that reminds us at times of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Wendy Carlos."

- Music Connection Magazine, April 2011

"Lee Negin is an eccentric genius. Not content with just (!) being a university professor and a globe-trotting life – Negin has lived in Japan, India, Poland and, currently, South Korea, since leaving America 21 years ago – he has spent over three decades producing experimental music to the point of (near) perfection. His new album ‘Hungry Ghosts’ – released February 7th – is a mad masterpiece....it’s addictive and blissful.

Author: Clive Rozario, AAA Music

And, in refusing to review it, the venerable New Music Express said it was "A bit too far off the wall for us."

Long time ago, goddesses concluded a pact with great Trees in the forest *** Since, they are one with them, guarding and protecting Nature so are the Dryads **** Have a sweet week end ♥

Il y a bien longtemps, des déesses ont conclu un pacte avec les grands Arbres de la forêt *** Depuis, elles sont en eux, gardant et protégeant la Nature ... ainsi sont les Dryades *** Passez un doux week end ♥

Love and be loved, the best wish we have in life ... some have known that, some still do, some will one day ... Beautiful Valentine's Day tomorrow to all, kisses and hugs from me to you ♥

Aimer et être aimé, le plus beau souhait de notre vie ... certains l'ont vécu, d'autres le vivent toujours, d'autres le vivront un jour ... Belle fête de la St Valentin demain à tous *** Bisous et câlins de tout coeur pour vous ♥

Today is grey and rain is coming ... perfect time for a walk on the moor ... maybe we can see the Lady living in these places ... for so long ... legend or reality ... it's up to you Smile Love ♥

Aujourd'hui il fait gris et la pluie arrive ... un temps parfait pour une promenade sur la lande ... peut être verrons nous la Dame qui vit en ces lieux ... depuis si longtemps ... légende ou réalité ... à vous de voir Smile Love ♥

Ocean in Winter is wilder, as it could live fully far from the crowded shores ... we just hear the sound of waves, the squealing of seagulls, and that is just wonderful ... Have a great new week dear friends ♥

L'Océan en Hiver est plus sauvage, comme s'il vivait pleinement, loin des rives surpeuplées ... on entend juste le bruit des vagues et le cri aigu des mouettes, et c'est tout simplement merveilleux ... Belle semaine chers amis ♥
