The Wire magazine picked this spaced out gem from Native American folksinger and activist Buffy Sainte-Marie as one the 100 Albums That Set the World on Fire. On this psychedelic gem, most of the sounds are completely synthesized from Buffy's voice and guitar, and her vocals are completely electronically altered. The songs themselves are a musical tapestry that breaks down the barriers between folk music, rock, pop, European avant-garde music and Native American styles. It's an ode to Buffy's influence on music that an album like Illuminations can continue to intrigue listeners three decades after release.
