Album Review

This melodic synthesizer music by Gerald Jay Markoe will have you floating on a cloud. Markoe begins the album with a just such a melody: its delicate harp seems to tiptoe past an angel choir humming a lullaby.

If some tracks in the album sound familiar, they probably are, as Markoe included three cuts from Sacred Music from the 7 Stars; they are slightly more spacious, melodic, and celestial than the album's more structured pieces.
