Review by DjBatman
3½ stars out of 4

"Babylon" - the perfect title for a project contemplating a world respected Hebrew vocalist collaborating with electronic act The Black Dog and a bunch of mad remixers (among them Jimmy Cauty of KLF fame in his most recent alias "The Scourge Of The Earth").  There are two cds out there (too bad I was able to put my hands only on a promo of cd 1, 'cause cd 2 has 3 different versions one of which is again "infected by The Scourge Of The Earth").  The first cd has the original "Hammurabi" version, recorded between London and Israel, with breakbeats, some radio noises and the full vocals, followed by a Peter Lazonby reworking with less words and fewer beats, for an ambient trip to the "Hanging Gardens" of Babylon. Finally, the trademark Cauty sounds explode, in a triumph of vocal samples, lots of radio voices, a choir chating the "Miserere" and jungle breakbeats. Sort of "The Magnificent meets F**k The Millennium  vs. Ofra Haza". That would have been a good KLF-ish name for this mix.
