  • The Prayer Cycle is a surprisingly spiritual and moving album masterminded by composer Jonathan Elias, featuring an all-star cast culled from the pop, rock, and world music arenas (including Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Alanis Morissette, Perry Farrell, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Ofra Haza, Salif Keita, and more). The album is structured as a nine-movement suite, with each movement dedicated to a different spiritual quality. Elias' material elicits passionate, committed performances from the assembled artists, making it a deeply felt statement on bridging cross-cultural differences. ~ Steve Huey

There might not be a more moving, beautiful album in existence. Although it can take a few listens for its charms to fully take hold, it is well worth it. With some great guest vocals from the likes of James Taylor, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Alanis Morrisette (she has never sounded better), these songs soar, taking the spirit with them. And the most astonishing thing about this wondrous album? It's the brainchild of Jonathan Elias, the same guy largely responsible for producing the appalling Yes "Union" album. Guess he's learnt, because this is beautiful.
