Product Description

Product Description

Pure Moods ~ Vol. 1-Pure Moods

Amazon.co.uk

New Age music, ambient electronica, and spiritualized hip-hop received their first major, K-Tel-like treatment in 1996 when Virgin Records assembled Pure Moods. The "As Seen on TV" compilation quickly became a hot seller, and it would be nice to think that its popularity has as much to do with the music as the marketing. To be sure, Pure Moods offers genre hits aplenty: from Enya's "Orinoco Flow" to "Sadness" from Enigma; from a dance mix of the "X-Files Theme" to edits of vintage electronica from Mike Oldfield (Tubular Bells) and Jean Michele Jarre (Oxygene). Beyond other selections of beat-enhanced chants and a few other popular themes ("The Mission," "Twin Peaks"), the album, refreshingly, also includes a few selections noteworthy only for their originality and quality. A three-track section near end of the 70-minute disk features affecting soft African chants from Geoffrey Oryema, followed by "My Wife with Champagne Shoulders," a dollop of regal, faintly ethereal romanticism from master film scorer Mark Isham, then a robust piano workout, "The Promise" from Michael Nyman (The Piano). With so many elements of interest on its 17 tracks, the album's broad diversity is sure to have broad popularity. --Terry Wood

I bought this to replace the much loved, lost original. The cover picture may be the same and certainly fooled me but the contents were not - less tracks and some different ones too. No doubt a good album but not up to the excellent standards of the original

Some reviews which appear here should belong to the 97 version of this album, because this 94 one does have the missing tracks, including McLaren's memorable 'Aria on Air'. Really, for the price, this is a mouth-watering collection of atmospheric singles and film/tv soundtrack pieces, from 'The Piano' to 'Inspector Morse', and from 'The Mission' and the mysterious 'Twin Peaks' theme to Brian Eno's 'Another Green World' from the late lamented 'Arena' programme. The album covers three decades of captivating mood music, from Mike Oldfield's 'Tubular Bells' to Enigma's 'Return to Innocence', and all for a very modest price. Music to relax/chill out to: you're sure to find a mood which hits that sweet spot.

I had the original on cassette (remember those) it's now long since lost. Great for relaxing to. Biggest critisism:- the removal of Malcolm Mclarren's Aria on air (British Airways Advert Theme.) I would pay for it all over again just for that track! I still gave the rest 4 stars though, so it aint all that bad.

I initially reviewed this on July 1, 2008. I first heard of this cd when it was first advertised on tv in the 90's but honestly thought nothing of buying it. However in 2001 I happened to spot this cd when I was stationed in Japan and am happy to have spent my money on this cd. Due to the variety of the songs I feel that this cd is good to listen to at work , when you are spending time with your loved ones, and relaxing and nurturing yourself when you are alone. Some of the notable tracks that really stand out in a positive way for me are

"return to innocence" by enigma
"orinoco flow" by enya
"sweet lullaby" by deep forest
"tubular bells" by mike oldfield
"sadeness" by enigma

There are other good tracks on this cd that are also enjoyable. This Pure Moods Vol. 1 album among the first in the pure moods collection lives up to its name in a positive way and is definitely worth purchasing.

I used to listen to this on a tape in the car on my way home after a stressful day at work. After years of doing this my tape sound quality deteriorated and I needed to replace it. That tells you how much pleasure I've had from listening to this music.

I was able to track down the 1994 version which has a slightly different track selection from the advertised one here. That tape had been my favourite in car entertainment in the 90s before it was stolen. This month I replaced it with the CD version, identical tracks. First, tremendous nostalgia and still very enjoyable. Second, what I noticed only now, was that a number of the tracks had drum parts they really did not need and might be better without. Clearly my tastes had changed since the 90s and perhaps one relevant factor is that in the last decade Classic FM, of course mostly drum free, had become my favourite in car entertainment. My wife's comment today: "they put all the elevator music of the period on this, didn't they?" Exactly, it's definitive of what it represents.
