Album Review

It can be easy to dismiss a Kitaro album as more "new age fluff." Indeed, many reviewers have done so, thereby depriving their readers of an honest appraisal and an opportunity to experience the sheer joy of this music. Silk Road, Vol. 2 is the second collection from Kitaro's soundtracks for the Japanese television series of the same name. These light, symphonic synthesizer pieces are elegant and glamorous. Kitaro approaches his craft tenderly and lovingly and it shows in his gentle touch. The ebb and flow of these pieces is warm and friendly. Kitaro is in the elite class of new age artists. Fans of Constance Demby, Suzanne Ciani, Dean Evenson, Lisa Lynne, Steven Halpern, and Tingstad & Rumbel will enjoy this CD.
