Album Review

Bernard Xolotl is one of new age music's true originals (he was Fortuna's first artist, dating back to 1979), although most of the musical transitions may not seem so original to the experienced ear. In fact, the musical journeys of Mexecho are like a travelogue through the various musical styles of Jarre, Lynch, Tri Atma and other familiar-sounding motifs of various genre maestros. Mexecho is part of The Edition Silent Beauty from Erdenklang, which, along with Koch and Krauser, are blessed with both a poetic beauty and an appealing commerciality.
