Customer Reviews

Not as profound as other albums, but decent Budd nonetheless.

It can be at times difficult to assign ratings to Harold Budd albums because they are quite similar in content. I have greatly enjoyed Budd's playing on albums such as "Ambient II", "The Pearl", "Translucence/Driftmusic", "Song for Lost Blossoms" and "After The Night Falls". This album, "Candylion", is good although not quite as good as those others. The reason why I give this three stars instead of four or five is purely subjective. It is because of the impression the music makes. When I listen to my favorite Budd Albums there is a sense of seriousness and solemnity. This album feels a little more casual, a little more haphazard. The mood leans from "uniquely reflective ambient" towards "yoga studio new age music." This is not to say it's unenjoyable. It contains several enjoyable tracks ("Ships that Sail Away" is great) and is just as good for studying or reading as any Budd album. Overall it's not Budd's greatest but I am sure it will please other fans of ambient music at least as it did me.
