'Owing to my prior ignorance of Abu el Leef's up-to-the-moment sweepingly postmodern Egyptian pop...I don't know what I thought it was. A comedy album? Some sort of Weird Al of Arabia? No. It's actually a sha'bi record...the music, though, is less sha'bi and pure, unadulterated, inventive pop...el Leef is a relatively late bloomer, having recorded his first album in 2010, when he was 42. His music divides audiences: in Egypt, you apparently love him or hate him.'
