Heartfelt and deep
This is such a great album - could listen to this every day (and did for a while!)

OUTSTANDING!!! This music goes strieght to the core of the spirit!
baba hanuman is the best thing i have heard in a long time
This is the best I have listened to so far. It's great when you need time to relax.
I've listened to most of KD's CDs and this is hands down his best. The production is amazing. It is saturated with love and devotion. The best tracks are Baba Hanuman (melts your heart), Kainchi Hare Krishna (blows your socks off), and Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya (very moving). The Hare Krishna chant is the best you will find anywhere- for its devotion and steady build up of energy. KD's voice is so deep and really resonates the power of these ancient mantras. Nothing airy-fairy here- the energy just blows through all the mental noise and inspires and strengthens the heart.

Krishna Das consistently comes in swingin' at the shell around your heart with a sledgehammer (in a yogic, non-violent sorta way), but this is really his best effort at igniting the joy in the listener's heart. Every track systematically reaches into every nook and cranny in there and pulls out bliss, longing for the divine, and awareness. I use it constantly in my yoga classes.
His greatest hits is an awesome introduction to KD, but this is a very close second. His other albums tend to be way more playful, or way more intimate, both of which are also great, but this one is just all love, all the time... Of course, you must go see him live when you get the chance, and get dunked in all that bhakti, but this will tide you over till then... Jai!
Not bad, but disappointing.

When I read the Rick Rubin was producing the next Krisha Das, I was intrigued and thought to myself... this is going to be a very interesting sound! Rubin, the ultimate producer (System of a Down, The Beastie Boys, Slayer, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond) working w/ Das!
This album is good if you don`t mind the same old Das. I didn`t give it more than 3 stars because it does not deliver as a Rubin production should.
Is Rubin to blame? I don`t know but a producer can only work with an artist as must as the artist will allow him to do so. Then again I was not in the studio but how cool would it have been to hear Das go a little more to the edge with his sound?
This album is good but its a little too much of the same old for me.
