Album Review: Tibetan Freedom Concert

You've got your dogma and you've got your rock. And never the twain shall meet, right? Wrong.

USA For Africa asked artists to "check you ego at the door." Adam Yauch and the organizers of the Tibetan Freedom

Concerts asked for and got the same, but what they also got was an amazing cross-section of both the world's biggest

and/or most important contemporary rock stars putting their heads down and playing earnest, if short, sets for a suddenly

hot cause. And now, removed from the excitement of the events themselves, comes a three-CD Tibetan Freedom Concert

album showing off some of the best music played during the '96 and '97 shows.
