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."

Universe is beyond our imagination, but even if we don't know all places and all people living in, we certainly are connected and need each other ... that's why working for Peace is crucial, and Peace comes from Love ... Have a great week end ... dream and make your dream more real than ever *** Light ♥



L'Univers est bien au delà de notre imagination, mais même si nous n'en connaissons pas tous les lieux ni les êtres qui les habitent, nous sommes assurément connectés et avons besoin les uns des autres ... C'est pourquoi travailler à la Paix est crucial, et la Paix découle de l'Amour ... Passez un week end formidable, rêvez et faites de vos rêves une réalité plus vivante que jamais *** Lumière ♥

There was a time when ravens and crows were considered as maleficent and even bad omen ... superstitions die hard ... I love these birds so clever than many cultures used their figures to celebrate their fine spirit *** ♥

Il y eut une époque où corbeaux et corneilles étaient considérés comme maléfiques et même de mauvaise augure ... les superstitions ont la vie dure ... J'adore ces oiseaux si intelligents que diverses cultures utilisaient leur emblème pour célébrer leur esprit aiguisé *** ♥

May your week end be peaceful, happy, and full of beautiful sharings ... Happy Mothers Day to women in different countries tomorrow ... Mothers must be the first peace makers because they give birth and know the price of life **** With Love ♥

Puisse votre week end être paisible, joyeux et plein de beaux partages ... Bonne fête des Mères aux femmes de différents pays dont c'est le jour demain *** Les Mères sont les premières faiseuses de paix puisqu'elles qu'en donnant la vie elles en connaissent le prix **** Avec Amour ♥

Women like perfumes, since ages Smile It's a mark of beauty, attraction, sensuality ... sometimes when they find a perfect one, they never change *** Have a sweet day ♥

Les femmes aiment le parfum, depuis la nuit des temps Wink C'est une marque de beauté, d'attraction, de sensualité ... parfois lorsqu'elles trouvent celui qui leur convient, elles ne changent plus Smile Passez une douce journée ♥
