3.0 out of 5 stars far east meets too much WEST?, 20 July 2013
This review is from: Chants (Audio CD)
A mixed bag this album. No denying the haunting appeal of Tibetan throat chanting albeit requiring a bit of a mixup to make it appeal to most western ears for an entire album. I can't help feeling that this addition of dance type beats and rhythmns is somewhat overplayed on occasions and less would be more if that makes any sense? The album is undeniably quite a dreamy, soothing affair and hard not to like if you are in any way a new age music fan. My main reservation with this concept is that it has all been (pretty much) done before by Enigma over twenty years ago when he experimented with American Indian, Gregorian chants and on occasions a strong eastern leaning. I own a lot of Enigma albums and the music here continually reminds me of his sound which I do find mildly annoying.Not a ground breaking moment of enlightenment to be found here but a quite nice relaxing sound for the headphones whilst laying sunbathing on an exotic beach.

Hello Archie

Give a listen to 'Sacred Tibetan Chant' by The Monks Of Sherab Ling Monastery (2003) for the real deal.

A strange and wonderful musical experience!

Regards

Wolfie
