Review by octopus-4
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR RIO/Avant/Zeuhl Team
4 stars I was in a record shop while somebody was buying this LP. The guy asked the shop's boss to give it a spin (it was still usual in these times) and this was my first time with the music of Andreas Vollenweider.

I remember that day very clearly. The winds opening the first track and the orchestral chord which follows made me think immediately to the PINK FLOYD of Meddle, then a friend who was with me said: "Hey, that's a harp!".

It was enough for me. I asked for another copy and this is how it began.

This is the first true progressive album of Andreas Vollenweider. Even containing some newage elements and featuring the German guru Buedi Siebert, also known for an album totally made of the Tibetan mantra "Om Mani Padme Um", has a symphonic flavor and the cleanness of the sound makes me think to progressive electronic even though the instruments are almost all acoustic.

As usual the harp acquires a bluesy taste in the solos, but what matters is that all the tracks flow like a symphony where all the single notes are carefully dosed. Going ahead with listening the first floydian impression disappears. The soprano who closes "Hall of the Stairs" takes the distances. The oriental bells, the winds which introduce "The Glass Hall" move from Asia to the Ands and back in few passages. If I should compare this album to something else Kitaro's "Dream" comes to my mind. There are similarities betwenn those two borderline artists sometimes considered newage, even thoug Kitaro is one of the minds of the psych Japanese band Far East Family Band.

I tend to consider "The Glass Hall" the main theme of the album, so "The Woman and The Stone" is like a different chapter of the story. Very melodic and relaxing with the oriental flavor still present in the winds.

A little bit of darkness is brought in by "The Stone". A sort of interlude based on a single minor chord with strings and soprano vocals making variations on it. Another artist I can compare this track to is LUCIA HWONG.

The sudden end of the track, similar to Soft Machine's "Palace of Glass" gives the start to "Phases of the Three Moons". This title let's intend that the Seeker of the album's subtitle is not seeking on this Earth. As track is a typical Vollenweider's track which fades into the kind of fusion tempo of "Flight Feet And Root Hands" which is my favorite album's track, moving from a light-jazz mood to a very melodic chorus.

The far east is back with the Gamelan bells of "Brothership" joint with nauture sounds. A dream in an Indonesian wood, this is what this music brings to my mind. "Sisterseed" is only formally a different track. Darker than the previous is still performed by oriental instruments but now are strings instead of bells, so it's strange when a concertina sends us back to the Alps with "Trilogy". The tracks fades out with a reprise of the main them transposed into minor chords, then only winds and a thin bell. The Seeker's journey is finished.

I suggest you to take this journey if you are looking for relaxing ambient music. The dreamy album's cover represents well the spirit of the music inside.
