4 stars This record is released on the Private Music label, a label dedicated to the dynamic New Age music in the second half of the 80's, like Yanni, Eddie Jobson and Tangerine Dream, among others. The Jerry Goodman's sensitive violin is very appropriate for the often melancholic & melodramatic moods involved. The style of the music consists in dynamic & rhythmic New age with progressive elements. The music is sometimes lively, sometimes sad & nostalgic, but it is neither dark nor obscure. Maybe the tracks are sometimes floating, but the ensemble is certainly not linear nor monotonous. There are very good intense and relaxing modern streams of keyboards. The keyboards may also be very percussive, producing charming textures. There are lots of percussions, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, and obviously modern keyboards that can be very melodic and rhythmic. There are some beautiful, visceral and emotional electric guitar/violin solos, truly giving a hard rock style to many passages. The overall sound seems not too artificial, despite the many modern keyboards involved: on the contrary, it amazingly sounds acoustic and natural, a bit like Andreas Vollenweider without the harp. The easy drums and the catchy melodies make this music pretty accessible.
