An African inspired improvisation, rich with ululations and glottal stops, opens 'The Other Side,' and immediately communicates a message that the music you are about to hear is rooted in another cultural evolution. We are presented with songs of rootlessness, the exploitation of the displaced, a hope to become a community, the difficult path of the stranger, revolution and finally emerge into love. At the end of our journey through this spirit of struggle we are exhorted to go back to the foundation of our existence in the service of the Lord. In the final song, "Tomorrow," the summary of a life journey through this veil of tears is presented with a hopeful melancholy.
