One of the best albums in the last 10 years. Its creative, intelligent, and focused. If you were to compare it to any top 40 rap music of today you couldn't. Its far superior in overall quality.

Dustyfoot philosopher was a master piece(songs like: In the Beginning, smile, Voices in my head, struggling, blues for the horn, My old home were among these best songs ever!!!) then again this year!K'naan suprised every one with another amazing stuff! I also heard he is currently doing a collabo with Nas& Damian Marley a song called Tribal wars, he also doing a song with Keane...can't wait to hear his new work!...peace and more inspirational music!
