Nitin Sawhney takes his Indian-fusion one step further with HUMAN, infusion copious amounts of British pop-soul with the Eastern vocals. And it's semi-successful, even if it does get a slightly self-indulgent at times ("Eastern Eyes," "Falling," “Rainfall” -- what’s up with all the tracks with “fall” in the title?). But there are also moments of sublime beauty, like on "Say Hello." The more "authentic" Indo-electric compositions like "Heer" work better, in my opinion, than the other hybrids… the Indo-blues of “The River,” for instance. Compare that to the blues-inflections on “Chetan Jeevan.” Still, you can't blame Sawhney for trying... after all, he's only human.
