Like its predecessor Amassakoul, Aman Iman successfully balances the upbeat with the plaintive, and density of sound with sparseness – although nothing is without the wonderful trademark desert drone. To the newcomer, the fact that there are four lead vocalists won’t be immediately obvious, as all have similar registers.

Their 2004 album Amassakoul ("The Traveller" in Tamashek) and its 2007 follow-up Aman Iman ("Water Is Life" in Tamashek) were released worldwide and gained the notice of celebrity fans including Carlos Santana, Robert Plant, Bono and the Edge of U2, Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Henry Rollins, Brian Eno, and TV On The Radio. The album later won the Award for Best World Music Album at the 54th Grammy Awards. In July 2011 the collective set out for a new world tour that included performances at the End of the Road Festival in September and All Tomorrow's Parties in December. Tinariwen appeared on The Colbert Report on November 29, 2011 with Adebimpe and.

On Aman Iman the guitars almost seem to chatter, the notes tight and clustered as they intertwine with undulating Arabic vocal lines and chant-like backing choruses. Producer (and Robert Plant sideman) Justin Adams, working again at Bamako’s Bogolan studio, captures Tinariwen in the raw – a minimalist collective playing a kind of lo-fi funk that’s both sleepy and at times jarringly jerky. Ahimana and Awadijen sound almost wrong to first-world ears, so weird are their lurching beats. As you might infer from its title, the album’s themes are broadly concerned with the realities of heat and aridity, along with the semi-nomadic existence of the Touareg people. The militancy of the band’s early (and outlawed) cassettes may be less in evidence, but the constants of thirst and emptiness remain. Water is life, say the Touareg, and milk is survival – a perfect message for our overheating planet.

Aman Iman, the third album of Malian desert bluesmen Tinariwen, sees the band suffer from a clear case of third album syndrome. Where debut The Radio Tisdas Sessions won listeners over on its raw honesty and beautiful simplicity, and Amassakoul stepped over to the mainstream through poppy hooks and rap sections, the 2007 album contents itself with rehashing old ideas, taking a very conscious – and very unpleasant – step back in the band’s sound. In fact, this album could be described with the utmost simplicity. Take Radio Tisdas, remove the inspiration and emotion, and you have Aman Iman

The song is included on this album, which they started recording the following day. This is an important time for Tinariwen. They have signed to a label best-known for rock acts such as Travis or Paul Weller, and there's clearly the hope that the band will now extend their appeal from African music fans to a wider audience. What's special about Tinariwen's latest desert blues is the way that their laid-back, rhythmic but gloriously tight and rousing songs are now mixed with spoken passages or more thoughtful, reflective pieces such as the semi-acoustic Nak Assarhagh

Prior to the release of Aman Iman: Water is Life, it seemed that few people had heard of Tinariwen. Formed in a refugee camp in the southern Sahara desert, this Touareg band have released two previous albums since 2001, garnering awards and critical acclaim around the world.
