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."

The seasons come and go inexorably. Winter is dying and already the sounds and smells of the new period are present ... Farewell Mr Winter .... It is not without nostalgia I see you leaving ...



Music by Lish Grooves



Les saisons se suivent inexorablement . L'Hiver se meurt et déjà les sons et les odeurs de la nouvelle période se font présents ... Adieu Mr Hiver .... ce n'est pas sans nostalgie que je vous vois partir ...

Brillant, moving, greatly performed by a very good casting, I recommand this movie, about Queen Anne, (from 1707 to 1714) in fact first Queen of Great Britain, after the unification of Scotland, England and Ireland. Respect to Olivia Colman, playing this unfortunate and suffering Queen in a wonderful way ♥

Brillant, émouvant, superbement interprété par un très bon casting , je recommande ce film sur la reine Anne (de 1707 à 1714), en fait la première reine de Grande-Bretagne, après l’unification de l’Écosse, de l’Angleterre et de l’Irlande. Respect envers Olivia Colman, jouant cette malheureuse et souffrante Reine d’une merveilleuse manière ♥
