Mercan Dede's 800 continues his merger of the ancient and the modern, as the title track shifts from a grand, classic composition to a downtempo Turkish rap. A vocoder takes center stage on "Yol Geçen Hanı." A gypsy influence creeps into "Mercanistan," while a French female spoken word slinks across "Kanatlar Kitabı." Some field recordings start off "Bilinmezin Elçileri" before the strings and horns take over. "Istanbul" is a travel advertisement in song form, and "Denizkızı İlahisi" has a gentle sadness on its waves. A soothing, enchanting album. Plus, it's cheaper than airfare to Turkey.
