Customer Reviews

One of the most amazing albums ever. Period.

If you haven't heard this ablum, please do buy it.
It is one of the most memorable, soft, beautiful albums ever.
So much emotion is put into these songs, and they are so well written.
When I first heard this album I was 13 years old, living in a farm house in the midwest
on 15 acers of land with a big pond. This CD so well descibes my time spent there as a kid.
It describes the peacfulness of the wide open fields, the windy days of rain, the days of sunshine
and big beautiful clouds. When I listen to this CD it puts me in a state of happiness and thankfulness
for all that I have. Brings me back to those peacful days living in the farmlands of Illinois.
I love Will Ackerman. This CD won a well deserved grammy, and has also won my heart.
Buy it!


Excellent. Well done!!!!

So many retreads from other albums....

First off, let me say I adore Will Ackerman's music. I am a huge Windham Hill fan, and gobble up all of Will's compositions. The emotion he conveys with simple melodies is unmatched, and makes my soul bleed.
The only complaint I have is that each one of his albums consists of at least 30% retreads from earlier albums. I already have the songs, so I never buy a new album.... Why do you do this Will? If I see one more album with The Bricklayers Beautiful Daughter on it, I will have an embolism. Please make an entire album of new material!

Will Ackerman has gained prominence both as a musician and a businessman, and at least one of those occupations seems to have been unintentional. Though Ackerman has played guitar since the age of 12, when he dropped out of college it was to become a carpenter, and his first company was called Windham Hill Builders. But Ackerman composed guitar music for Stanford University theater productions, and the encouragement of friends led him to record an album of his tunes, In Search of the Turtle's Navel,...
