Take an amazing audible journey...
I came across this album searching for "Cahuita" which I had discovered from the Cafe del Mar series. After sampling a few songs I decided to buy the entire album. No buyer's regret for me! This album was a wonderful discovery for my collection. From beginning to end, ambient syths, guitar strings and piano keys will take you away on a soothing ambient journey. Want to relax? Buy this album.
I can't say enough about this album. It transcends the "new age" genre and is a brilliant instrumental composition that should be up there with the the most famous classical compositions. That it isn't recognized as such I can only attribute to its being pigeonholed as new age massage music, but it's much more than that. I've always liked Oystein Sevag, and this is his masterpiece. The lovely, haunting passages in this album take the listener to quiet, contemplative worlds and evoke mossy, dripping forests, cold arctic landscapes, and no doubt other peaceful places specific to the listener. If I had to live on a desert island (or preferably an uninhabited island in Washingon State's Puget Sound) and could only take one album with me, this one would be it.
Totally lovely & enduring
One of the most enduring albums I have. Although ambient in nature and up for countless listening without wear I have managed to overplay it at times. Just short of intense and brooding. Beautiful sound production, the guitar recording is impressive, warm, clear, powerful. Sevag takes a quiet role in the background, creating ambient space for the guitarist.
Wonderful for treatments, yoga classes, and "serious" spas.
