Combining new age music with the instruments typically associated with Indian music, Mystic India is a bizarre collection. Certain songs, like "Raga Hansadhwani," are very in tune with traditional Indian music. These are the strongest tracks, letting the music speak for itself without any goofy additions. But then, on other tracks like "New Kafi." the music is given added keyboard and drum machine parts. This in itself is not so bad, as the songs tend to warm up to some of the additions. But on several of the tracks, including "New Kafi," the added music is bad elevator jazz. These tracks are hard to stomach, because it moves from authentic to absolutely cheesy in one foul move. Still, the album has enough good material to keep it from getting too bad, but it definitely is not a great album by any means. Those looking for the general sound of Indian music without getting into the actual thing should give this a listen, but otherwise this is not recommended for true fans of the genre. ~ Bradley Torreano
