Catching Up

Last week, the Jerusalem Post reviewed Adi Ran's recent release "Ma Yesh Lachem Lid'og."
Ran's vocal style is what George Thorogood might sound like when he first rolls out of bed after a long night - a sound well-suited to the album's mood.

The tracks range from thrashy fast songs about Ran's love for the Almighty ("Ani Ohev") to slide-acoustic-guitary mid-tempo tunes about Rabbi Nahman ("Mitbonen" and "Haniggun Hamushlam," which is reminiscent of 4 Non Blondes' 1992 mega-hit "What's Up") to slow, soul-ish numbers like the breathtaking Hammond organ-driven "Odcha."
