Here's what people are saying about "The Other Side of the Sky":
"72 minutes of upbeat, enjoyable, and thoroughly infectious
rhythms and melodies jump off the CD,
with music that warms the room and livens the
spirit...The uplifting listening experience on this CD is even more
in a live performance, where their ethnic
attire, exotic instruments, and high-energy music offer an engaging
gateway to African
history, language, and culture."
- Victory Review Magazine, Dec 2007
Relevant! Clever! Wonderful
musicianship! Like the others who have submitted a review about this CD I
but gush!! The music brings a smile, the words,
reminders of what is important in life, and immediately gets me on my
dancing. The combination of African rhythms and
western voices and lyrics is really well done. I highly recommend this
- Lynda Cole
"I listen to this CD everyday--It's the ultimate feel-good music!
love this CD, I listen to it everyday! The tunes are catchy, the words
simple but relevant, and there's a lot of variety
to the music. It makes me want to sing and dance
-- It's just plain fun! I like to put it on when I'm driving, cooking,
the house, doing the yardwork -- Pretty soon I'm
done and I've had a really good time."
- Holly Nelson
"WOW! This CD is pure JOY!.
I defy anyone to feel blue or down while listening. Now, this
is what "music therapy" is all about! Once was
not enough, the minute the CD ended I jumped up to play it again,
the house seemed empty without it's sound and
energy. The song selection was perfect, reminding me of the importance
and keeping life in perspective. I could
identify at some level with it all, many thanks for all the smiles
inside and out.
What a great group of humans "being" you all
are, so refreshing and spontaneously uplifting, there is HOPE! Heading
off to work for now with a warm fuzzy good

you for your voice! Tonight we were at a

really loved it! For me, as a writer, I love the
upbeat joy of the music and the simple profundity of your lyrics. Thank
for your voice, it is an important, good-hearted

Kite, I just want to tell you how much I am enjoying the new Fools CD -- I think it is absolutely brilliant.
I really like the two new songs, too --
especially "Maybe." Your singing is really honest and authentic, and
marimba leads are outstanding -- especially on
"Ecstasy." I really like Saffire's vocals, too, and all the harmony
vocals. And Noah's horn playing is just amazing.
I don't mean to gush but this CD is just really a tour-de-force of
music and brilliant musicianship!"
- Lawrence Howard
