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."

Second Full Moon in March, just before Easter, as usual ... Ram is the sign in this time and his energy is very strong ... as the older symbol The Lamb, in connection with Easter of course ... Strength, Light and Love ♥

Seconde Pleine Lune de Mars, juste avant Pâques, comme toujours ... Le Bélier est le signe de cette période, et son énergie est très forte ... tout comme l'ancien symbole du signe, L' Agneau, en relation avec Pâques bien sûr ****** Force, Amour et Lumière ♥

This week is very special for many people, but beyond our beliefs, we all go through difficult and painful times ... We have to know, that, in time, we can see the light , because, light is always there, and every tunnel ends to a clear horizon .... Wish you hope, love, light and peace ♥

Cette semaine est très spéciale pour beaucoup de personnes, mais au-delà de nos croyances, nous passons tous par des moments difficiles et douloureux ... Nous devons savoir qu'en son temps, nous pourrons voir la lumière, car elle est toujours là ... et chaque tunnel finit sur un horizon clair ... Je vous souhaite de l'espoir, de l'amour, de la lumière et la paix ♥
