I have to give the credit to whoever compiled this album as most of the songs sound as if there were originally released together. I think this is clear when you observe the use of instruments in the songs espically the arrangments of violins. The album itself has a strange feeling to it. I don't know how to explain it, but let me put this way, they don't write songs like these anymore. Some of the songs sound as if they were taken from a 60's romantic film. There is a song 'Alkitaf' which with its vivid images sounds like it was taken from a musical film set in the time of harvest. The album includes two of Shiek Said Darwish's classics, everyone's favorite 'Tel'et Ya Mahla Nourha' and 'Zouroni' with which Fairuz ends almost every concert.
