In a lot of ways it seems churlish to review this as a music release. It's a CD, it's for sale, but it's not a commercial release in the way so many are. Recorded in 2001 at Mickey Hart's ranch, it does exactly what it says on the tin. If you're familiar with the Gyuto Monks, you'll already know what to expect. If not, there is a deep beauty about it, although it's not for casual listening. It has to be absorbed, almost through the skin as much as the ears, and taken into the heart. It's not for everyone; it's slow-moving and many layered. But if it catches you, then you'll be hooked. At times the voices don't sound human as overtones clash and move, and overdubbing gives a huge sound to what's actually a very small choir and some percussion and horns. For some it will prove addictive; to others it will mean little at all.
"Soothing And Sacred!"
.."Accept This Offering!"..And let the Gyuto Monks of Tibet put your Mind & Soul in a Tantric Trance! (If you have never experienced Tibetan Chanting in person or on record; You are in for a "Real Trip"; And you don't even need an updated Passport!) All Praise to the White Swan Label for getting permission from the Gyuto Monks to even observe & then beautifully record them for posterity! Within the Mandala Symbol; There is Cosmic Unity and Only with Unity; Can we achieve World Peace!...by Grimmbo.
The Gyuto monks are radiating on this album. Such love of the divine and pure blessings fill the room when I listen to this. Mickey Hart does it again!
Beautiful and powerful
fantastic recording. There is something that feels so sacred about in the Monks voices.
