Mantra Mix

By David Kenney

Free Tibet–buy the CD. Conscience motivated, fair-weather music fans finally have the proper mantra to guide them. Mantra Mix, a Tibetan Refugee benefit album, is half about the rock with prayer time accessible at the switch of a disc.

Electronic acts such as Massive Attack and Moby grind the beats, and Kulashaker and Ben Harper get psychedelic, forging a full hallucination. But nothing compares to the interactive Dalai Lama section. That Dalai, he’s so cool. This concept, however, seems just a wee bit unholy.
