Reconstruction and mix translation of Sussan's masterwork "Madman Of God" by the legendary musical pioneer, Bill Laswell.
"Shy Angels" is Bill Laswell's reinterpretation of the entire "Madman of God" album, in which Sussan Deyhim presents her uniquely personal reading of divine love poems by Rumi, Saadi and other Persian Sufi masters.


Bill Lashell has taken Sussan Heyhim's brilliant Madman of God album, pushed the finally crafted traditional instrumentation down in the mix, and slapped on top a naff disco drum beat with no sensitivity to the rhythmical comlpexities of the original music and singing. The result is a travisty. Worse still, record stores now only seem to stock this monstrosity, and not the original version. Nevertheless, I urge you to steer well clear of this cd and search out the original.
