5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous well thought out collection., 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America - 1950-1990 (Audio CD)
A really beautiful collection of music that seems to illustrate a real sense of honesty and gentility towards the listener and the music itself. I've been listening to mostly modern ambient music for a long time and this album has brought a good few names to my attention and has re-ignited my passion for those names I already knew. The album really shows a sensitivity towards the subject of New Age music (which has such a stereotype attached to it nowadays) that makes you remember/realise the raw beauty of some of these early works; a sense of grandeur exploration and experimentation comes through from the pieces, and of course it has it's effects on you.

Contradicting a previous reviewers comments about the sleeve design (albeit it is cheesy and retains the New Age stereotype aesthetic), I personally really like it. It has been a while since I have bought a CD that someone has obviously cared a lot about, the booklet is well produced and very interesting and the whole package is rather nicely designed. I imagine the Vinyl edition is lovely to hold.

Anyhow, I would highly recommend this one, for journeys, for introspection, for meditation, for sleep......But most importantly, because there are some damn fine pieces of music collected here, that should be noticed and listened to with intent, once again.
