Egyptian Lover was so unique and a musical freak. Dude was long on talent and funkiness. I thought he was so original with his name too. Not long after everybody was "egyptian this, or arabian that". EL did borrow from other artists and their influence is noted in many of EL's songs (i.e., Prince), but EL never sounded like a retread.

This record Egypt Egypt started a movement in the hip hop / electro game. Between EL and Dr. Dre and the WCWC, I can't say more artists had the kind of influence this record had. And the great thing about it is that it's not his only superb jam. EL is very talented and has many more works to get into. Check him with Uncle Jamms Army as well.
