Without You Review - Sami Yusuf 2009
The highlight of the album is the track "Forever Palestine", a heartfelt song expressing the courage and endurance of the Palestinian people in these times of hardship and suffering. "Of the other songs in the album, Sallou is a beautiful synthesis of four different languages taking a different angle on the Danish cartoons controversy, while He is There, Without You, and Anything For You, all written by renowned British singer and songwriter Conner Reeves are songs that remind people of what they sometimes forget in their busy lives. A Thousand Times is a song about real friendship, while Not in My Name is an explosive song denouncing acts of violance - both written by Bara Kherigi. The song Never Never is influenced by Indian music and beautifully combines English, Hindi and Turkish. Salutation is a soft and meditative acapella track. The album also contains the hit single Asma Allah - the melodious ballad that was pre-released with a music video. All the songs in this album were composed by Sami Yusuf.
