Al Hob El Kebir
Released: 2004
Location: Beirut, Lebanon
“Al Hob El Kebir” is another one of Ragheb Alama’s best albums (this superstar has released many!). Lebanese artist Ragheb has been at the top of Arabic pop music for about 25 years. Although it is pop/rock music, it is still “proper music” with meaningful composition, beautiful melody, proper arabic rhythms plus excellent instrumentation & exciting orchestration. Pan-arab sound (i.e. not specifically Lebanese sounding in terms of its rhythm selections & structure). Very powerful & exciting music. This album was released in 2005, and veers towards the “rock” end of the “pop” spectrum.
