2 stars Although this album is nothing like Horizen, it still strikes me the same way: generic and uninspired. Add repetitious to that. On the other hand, it works as meditative music (the kind to which one does not really pay attention). Just simple synth lines with flute. No percussion and little or no recognizable guitar. I kept my cassette copy but never upgraded to the recent CD issue. No doubt going for the New Age market in the 80's.

2 stars Following my reviews of Jade Warrior, I arrived to the album "At Peace" appropriate title for the style of music portrayed in the album; three long pieces full of relaxation, peace, flutes, slow guitar riffs, environmental sounds, synthesizers ... at the end, very new age. The album is not bad, but nothing compared to other albums in their discography. Perhaps, the most relevant thing about it is the fact that it was the last album where the legend Tony Duhig, co-founder of the band, participated. He died one year later. So, definitely this album is a must for those Jade Warrior fans, who followed the band since their very first album.

1 stars Now for my first review on meditationmusicarchives, I will be discussing this 1986 album that went unreleased for a few years by one-off British duo JADE WARRIOR. Apart from the first track, which actually has a few clips of discernible melody congealed in its interstices, this is an ideal album to which to meditate, to drift off and be certain that nothing untoward will banish your mantra, or whatever you're using to stay on point. The ambient arrangements are gently imparted on amorphous synths, synthy flutes, and fluty synths, with loooooong loooong notes with no beginning and no end, never wavering thank Buddha. A few nature sounds ensure that you will be transported back to the last time you camped outdoors, but will act as calamine lotion to whatever bug bites you might have endured in passing. I would even add that one could overlay guided meditation imagery on "At Peace" without disturbing the titular promise one bit. Don't worry, there are ZERO drums to unbliss you! 4 stars for the opening track and 5 stars for the closing 2 tracks for a 4.5 star rating.......

Wait what? This isn't MMA? And JADE WARRIOR is a venerable prog rock group? Someone wake me now! No, let me sleep, it feels soooooooo gooooood. I'll rate this when I'm awake and can feel at peace with my choice.
