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.

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


"Hungry Ghosts" and other songs are on iTunes, CD Baby, Bandcamp and Amazon.

Happy week end to all .... I leave you with Marie Antoinette ... in this special day ... because I can't approve the way so many people died at this time and her, 4 years later .... ♥

Joyeux week end à tous ... je vous laisse avec Marie Antoinette ... en ce jour particulier ... parce que je ne peux approuver la façon dont tant de gens sont morts à cette époque, et elle, 4 ans plus tard ......... ♥

Elle était juste une femme

Quittant ton pays
Et tout ceux que tu chérissais
Pour une autre terre
Pour un futur roi
Que tu n avais jamais vu
Quel était ton rêve
Dans cette nouvelle vie
Tu voulais simplement être aimée
Mais finalement tu t'es sentie si triste
Et te désespérais tant
Trouvant le bonheur
Dans les frivolités
Et lorsqu' arriva un doux amant
Tu as trouvé une raison d'espérer
Des jours meilleurs
Dans une folle passion
Alors vinrent les heures sombres
Qui pouvait comprendre
Que tu n'étais juste qu'une femme

Mysterious and ageless, she travels through time ... maybe you've met her, or you will ... and you'll never forget this Lady Smile

Mystérieuse et sans âge, elle voyage à travers le temps ... peut être l'avez vous rencontrée, ou vous en aurez l'occasion .... et vous n'oublierez jamais cette Dame Smile

Something refreshing in these warm days ... Far from crowded beaches, a quiet moment on shore , to admire waves ... Love ♥

Quelque chose de rafraîchissant en ces jours chauds ... Loin des pages surpeuplées, un moment tranquille sur le rivage , en admirant les vagues ... Love ♥
