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."
