Album Review

There are some things in life that you can count on. Every two or three years Madonna will find a way to get back into the center of public attention; Axl Rose is never going to finish Chinese Democracy; and when an album title includes the phrase "world peace," the music is going to be terrible. In general, you can assume that the more exalted the musician's extramusical goals, the less important the music will be to him or her (because after all, what do hooks matter when world peace is on the line?). But every rule has its exceptions, and here's the exception to that one. Dechen Shak-Dagsy has the kind of sweet, unaffected voice that cynical musos and dewy-eyed new agers alike can't help but enjoy, and her accompaniment on this album is a spare but elegant combination of guitar, sitar, and the occasional barely there keyboard or tanpura. The melodies are simply and heartbreakingly lovely, and the lyrics are all sung in Tibetan — but translations are available in the booklet, so if you want to hear about how all the animals of the earth may have been our mothers at some time, or if you want to be exhorted to "affectionate friendship" and "sincere helpfulness," you're all set. If, on the other hand, you want nothing more than to luxuriate in the heart-lifting beauty of the music itself, you can do that even more easily. Highly recommended to all Type A personalities.

Customer Reviews

One of the most beautiful albums

This is one of the most beautiful, moving recordings I've ever heard. I have listened to the album over and over again and often play it while driving or working when I need to relax. It actually seems to impart a sense of peace. Each song is a Tibetan prayer for peace and Dechen Shak-Dagsay sings each one with beauty and passion. Absolutely enchanting!

Angelic Voice

This is especially evidenced in the song titled "Balancing the Elements." In this album, she allows us to experience her gifted ability to make her voice flow so sweetly and clearly. While her previous album "Universal Healing Power of Tibetan Mantras" is more meditative, this one has a collection of songs that are more melodic and pretty. I am willing to say that I will buy any album she puts out--which is quite a thing for me (or anybody for that matter) to say.

Delicate and Graceful

So, so exquisite. I can't overstate how touching this music is.
