5.0 out of 5 stars Unsurpassed 13 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
Until hearing this album (before I'd heard its immediate predecessor, Sapphire) I'd never been really enthused by anything from KM. I had for a while then sold Cherry Blossom which basically has only two outstanding tracks on it. This one though is utterly brilliant from end to end ~ no vocal tracks to pollute things and a highly imaginative blend of East and Western musical flavours, quite spine tingling in places. It's said that the mark of a true master is the apparent ease of accomplishment and that is surely never more so than here.

As much as the music, it's the sounds as well which make this so magical, not least thanks to bass guitar samples courtesy of John Patitucci, Marcus Miller and Abe Laboriel. Paul Taylor's still the man in the sax department with his somewhat tortured soprano sound, but fortunately there isn't too much of him. This is much better (in my book) than either Doll or Cherry Blossom and, from various reports, better than just about any of her early stuff. Great. The HDCD encoding probably helps as well. After this one, though, there doesn't seem to have been another to rival it so there can be no better place to start with KM than this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and soothing 19 Mar 2000
By Karl E. Balsara - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is awesome. I own 7 of Keiko Matsui's albums and this one is far and away my favorite. It is smooth and soothing all the way through, there are no vocals anywhere, and unlike some other albums, this one just gets better with every listen. Traditional Japaneese influences have featured largely in Keiko's music but with this album, she takes it to a whole new level. It is an almost new age feel that carries you through rolling tracks like Dream Walk, Presence of the Moon, and Tribal Boat. Bridge Over the Stars and A Cat on a Chimney maintain the jazz feeling while Mask and Valley simply knock you head over heels with their power. If you are a new fan of Keiko Matsui's music or contempory jazz in general, you should own this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite 14 May 2005
By Karen G : ) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent album--very relaxing and uplifting. Very different from the general run of "stuff" you hear nowdays.

I've called this my "favorite album I do not own". I've checked it out from the library for years because I could not find it for sale. Its time I had it. Thanks!! : )

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again dreamy magical music 23 Nov 2003
By Lorelle VanFossen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There is something haunting, mystical, mysterious, and yet up front and straight out about Keiko Matsui's music. She is a constant dicotomy, which is enchanting and inspiring all at the same time.
Dream Walk is as wonderful as the rest of her albums. The songs run the gamut of emotion and themes from bubbling cheery to haunting whispers of a dark night's mist rising.
Add this to your collection of Keiko if you are a fan. If you aren't a fan, you might want to start with Shaphire or her Live Album to get a well-rounded taste of the magic. This album is great for easy listening, inspiring listening, and eating dinner or just relaxing with a good book. She's done wonders again!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRIDGE OVER THE STARS! 12 Oct 1999
By JOHN BARTOK BASTIAN (johnbartok@webtv.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Unbelieveable tune from DREAM WALK. I have been playing piano 47 years and I have fallen in love with the way this woman plays.I happen to be a home theater designer in California and I have a full-fledged Dolby Digitalreference system here in my studio; I can hardly wait for the CD to get to me (I just heard it off FM KWAV (THE WAVE) and the price is worth it for BRIDGE OVER THE STARS alone.The engineering is perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars May be the best 29 Mar 2000
By Neil Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD and "Full Moon and the Shrine" are my favorites by Keiko. I am more partial to the latter, but it is a close call. As I wrote in my review of "Full Moon", this is one of the 1st four Keiko CDs I recommend to someone just getting started on her music (her Live and Collection CDs are the others). However, I own all 12 of her CDs and I enjoy listening to every one of them. Someone unwilling to stray from more traditional jazz, classical, or pop sounds may not like her music. It combines all of these styles and includes the sound of Japanese music. This blend, however, can be very appealing and seems to me to be worth experiencing.
