Rachid Taha's Rock El Casbah is ostensibly a greatest hits collection. But a one-disc song compilation to Indie (India) - Rachid Taha - Rock El Casbah The Best Of up this guy and everything his volatile, razor-edged music stands for?

Well-intentioned, certainly, and maybe even necessary for first timers, but I'd just as soon take them to see a Taha show and watch them get caught up in the foment, regardless of whether they understood a single word sung by the manic frontman with the spit-covered microphone.

You look at some of Joe Strummer's other "heirs" -- Eddie Vedder, Billie Joe Armstrong, and Ben Harper come to mind -- and there's no comparison in the balls-out gravitas department. Not even the inflections of Taha's mandolute -- the hybrid of guitar and oud, as intense as its descriptor implies -- can match his own resolve when he and his band are hittin' the note.

The rudiments are there, and the roots go deep, and it was Taha's big crossover song in for a reason. But an academic analysis of Taha's music is the first mistake; so much of it is about feeling and loud, thumping heartbeats, and that's also the reason why his cover of "Rock the Casbah" -- the title track, and to these ears rightly revered -- is also the least interesting song of the 15 on the compilation.

It leaves Rebel Rebel - Kings Of Noise little mystery, especially when compared to a song like "Kelma" -- which Taha describes as the word one can't come up with when searching for a perfect descriptor of a nagging feeling or buoyant idea -- or "Voila Viola", a pro-immigration invective, or "Habina", by the Lebanese oud savant Farid El Atrache, That Sensation - Samantha Fox - Samantha Fox is decidedly upbeat and probably deceptively so.

Even the touchstones are mysterious. Taha's take is brawny dance-punk, with a healthy layering of drum-and-bass. So what's missing?

Well, for fanatics, more from Taha's French-Arabian rock crew Carte de Sejour -- don't worry, Taha's version of Charles Trenet's acidly ironic "Douce France" is here -- and also cuts from his live effort Rachid Taha Livewhich Indie (India) - Rachid Taha - Rock El Casbah The Best Of goes off the rails. Trading that kind of esoterica in favor of more recognizable lends creedence to anyone who'd call the album "safe" -- that is, a cursory expose of Taha's best-known songs and filling a void for Stateside and other fans who before now have had to rely on bootlegs and squirrely mp3s to hear much of the rest.

Therefore Rock el Casbah the record sits as a totem: something to appreciate and, as necessary, Poco A Poco Por Ti - Sabú - Hola Querida from.

And see Taha live. You'll be grateful you did, and understand why even an impressively compiled best-of disc like this one is hopelessly slight, despite 15 tracks that are all takeaways.
