2 stars The Unbearable Lightness of Jon Anderson.

This is a collection of atmospheric soundscapes, not terribly unlike, but slightly better than Frippertronics.

It appears that Jon sat in front of his synthesizers and created light, airy sessions of choral waves and keyboard washes and released them as new age mood music. He even went as far as adding the sound effects of birds and water noises to show us how pastoral these compositions are. To me that adds an annoying feature to what may have been nice background music for falling asleep.

There is on actual song on here, Prayersong, where Jon and Jade Anderson sing a prayer to whichever god it is that they believe in.

If you need to have all of Jon's work get it (after you get that enormous boxed set he was offering on his web site), otherwise, it's not necessary.

Evolver | 2/5 |
