5.0 out of 5 stars a guaranteed stress buster , BLISS, 2 Feb 2008
This review is from: Porcelain (Audio CD)
I had to review this despite usually not bothering. This album needs to get more attention than it has. It's simply a perfect collection of piano music. This sort of thing isn't my usual cup of tea. Classical music just seems too complex and long for me to sit and listen to it for long enough to appreciate it or even give it a chance.

But this is something else, everyone should have a copy in their house. It's the most relaxing and de-stressing experience you could ever ask for from a music album. I thought other easy listening artists were the perfect tonic to today's modern stress filled life but nothing can compare to the beauty of this lady's work.

Helen Jane Long has composed thirteen gems that flow over you and soothe you. I just put the cd on, lie back and relax. The thing that makes this so special is because although I don't doubt Long's skill as a piano player, she has composed tracks that sound (probably deceptively) simple. The music is repetitive and simple but this works a treat, it really helps you relax.
I'm sure many would argue it's too repetitive but this is what makes it relax you, if given a chance, it really does just lift you from the stresses of life.

The tracks may sound simple and repetitive but they also really are great at capturing and conveying emotions, moods or themes.
This really is music to make you think and relax. And if it doesn't do that for you, the very least it offers is some very relaxing background music for you while you're at home.
