Wax Poetic Nublu Sessions

The production on Nublu Sessions is decent and it starts off with a stellar tune-"Tell Me" (featuring Nora Jones)--but Wax Poetic's latest album comes off as a really bad attempt at contemporary world music. "Oriental Wind" is one of the worst offenders-it starts off with a pi pa (a traditional Chinese instrument) before segueing into a shehnai (a traditional Indian instrument) solo with a house beat that sounds like it came straight out of the box-more like the presets. On Nublu Sessions, Wax Poetic strives for mass appeal but just ends up with mediocrity.
