4-0 out of 5 stars Reverent, beautiful
After criticizing Windham Hill in the past for often recycling the same songs over and over in various collections, I have to hand it to them with the new "Prayer" CD. It's a fine set of all-new acoustic versions of hymns or spiritual songs, plus a good number of original compositions. Producer Dawn Atkinson has done an excellent job of lining up a bunch of top-drawer people for "Prayer," and in working with the artists on the song selection.

Things get started with Tim Story's lovely piano rendition of the "Sanctus" from Faure's Requiem. The quiet and reflective tone of that piece carries throughout the CD. Other highlights include Paul McCandless's moving "Lord's Prayer" version and Steve Erquiaga's "Ave Maria." "Prayer" is a perfect disc for background listening if you're engaged in some activity that needs harmonious yet unobtrusive accompaniment. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So rich and full of color
Well,I'm not an expert in "chill music",I'm just starting to explore it,but this cd has the quality of reminding me of a vacation I had when I was a teenager,were everything was sofisticated,wordly,charming,we would spend all day at the beach,chill out at sunset,and then spend all night in hot spots and cool nightclubs.
When I listen to this cd and close my eyes,I can see my self on a beautiful beach,having a great time,and I think that sometimes,that's more than enough to make a cd worth it's price,when you can be transported to a great place and relax a little,without leaving your place beside your stereo!!.
I recommend speacially the songs "Talking with myself '98" and "Transfatty acid".

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
This kind of CD you just need to have. Picture this: Room with dimmed lichts, fireplace,Wine,Cheese and the lady you love arround you! Cafe del Mar Collection, in total 6 cd's is a Must Have, buy without listening. Nice songs, instrumental pieces, always with the smooth sound of synths.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's Not lounge
If you surfed your way to this page, chances are you like Downtempo, Lounge, Chill style. This CD plays in a different register. The tempo is more on the outskirt of Dance music. Jose Padilla's vocal choice on songs # 9, 13 and some others is anything but original. It even emphasize the Dance tempo. I wish if it was more subtle ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Cult following
This is a CD that a German DJ (Caterina) gave to David Smith on the finale episode of Joe Millionaire 2 (it took a sharp-eyed viewer to recongnize the CD cover from a brief showing). Many followers of this show REALLY want to know about this woman- she is from Berlin, Germany and is involved in the DJ/music industry there. This is my introduction to this type of music and I look forward to listening to this CD many more times. I like to make my music fit my mood- not vice versa. Definitely good relaxing music!

5-0 out of 5 stars soft chilling
Great music to unwind to on a weekend day. I own most of the Del Mar series and Volumes 3,4 and 5 are where its at. Takes me back to the poolside bars in the Greek Islands where I was first introduced to this series. ... Read more

Another Day on Earth is an ambient song cycle that is full of yearning and a mood that Brian Eno has called "brave and resigned." Even in song, Eno is a master of ambience, creating detailed soundworlds and lyrics that don't so much make sense as create a feeling. It's taken him 15 years to create a new vocal album, and the songs span that time, with the welcome reprise of "Under," a devastatingly beautiful hymn of loss and redemption that dates back to 1991's aborted, unreleased My Squelchy Life album. It's turned up before on the Cool World soundtrack and Eno Box II: Vocals. Joining "Under" as one of Eno's most sublime songs is "And Then So Clear," a paean of wasted longing and hope with its cycling rhythm, ethereal guitars, and pitch-shifted vocal harmonies. You can hear Eno's love of gospel music on "This" and "Bottomliners," and can almost picture them in a particularly pensive Baptist church with his double-tracked vocals emulating a solemn choir. But it's not all minor-key reflection. Eno also unleashes a couple of fractured tunes, like "Bonebomb," which is from a project in which he mutated the meter of poets reciting their works. Another Day on Earth is a more personal album from the ambient avatar, a recording of rare and meticulous maturity. --John Diliberto

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for practice at home
I first heard this CD at my power yoga class at the gym. The tracks coordinate well with a one hour class, to a mellow smooth beginning, increasing beats and intensity in the middle and then a soothing ending perfect for sivasana. This is one of my top yoga CDs, highly reccomend if you are having trouble getting motivated to practice at home. This makes it so enjoyable!

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST have for yoga instructors
This is better suited for active yoga classes, but the flow and tempo of this CD is outstanding. The rhythms are enchanting and you will find many students tapping theirs toes and letting lose. Not good for gentle, slow or relaxing classes, this is best for active yoga and magnificent for flow style yoga. The theme expressed through the entire CD was power and softness, the true hatha. Nice ease into the practice at the beginning of the CD, very nice transition into a heat building portion of the practice, and one of the best transitions I've ever heard from a yoga CD into cool down and Sivasana.

A must have CD, I lost the first CD and this is one of the few that I'm replacing out of the entire 20 CD case filled with Yoga music I had lost.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yoga Rhythm
I really like this CD, great beat throughout. I teach "Active Yoga" and this is perfect to keep the class moving but it is also meditative, the music will not interfere with class instruction. Perfect for teaching and good listening music. ... Read more

Amazon.com essential recording

In 1973, fed up with Bryan Ferry's domineering in Roxy Music, Eno leapt into a solo career that would find him championing the "art" in "artifice." This record is a who's who of the then-burgeoning English art-rock scene, featuring Robert Wyatt, Robert Fripp, and every member of Roxy Music except its leader (thus answering the musical question, "What if Eno had helmed the third Roxy record instead of Ferry?"). Warm Jets sports a lightheartedness that was a refreshing antidote to the pomposity of Yes and ELP on the dark side of art-rock's spectrum, with nonsensical, sound-based couplets such as "Oh headless chicken / How can those teeth stand so much kicking?" This debut is a milestone not just for Eno, but for all rocking music. Listen to Fripp's furious guitars on "Baby's On Fire" and "Blank Frank." It's incredible, Velvet Underground-inspired rock in a scene that had forgotten what rocking meant. --Gene Booth ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic album but buy the remastered edition
"Here Comes the Warm Jets" stands as one of Eno's best solo albums. Later he would venture into more ambient territory but here Eno rocks out with a vengence. "Baby's on Fire" with Fripp's stuttering guitar solo is one of the stand out breaks. While Eno never had a great voice, he does a pretty good job overall singing the material. His singing improved greatly with each successive album.

Although the remastered/reissued edition doesn't have any bonus tracks, I'd recommend it over this edition. The DSD remastered sound captures much more detail, depth and, well, ambience than the originally issued CD. This isn't a bad mastering job, it's just dated sounding compared to more recent reissues.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning, and almost entirely contemporary
There are people on this page who know all about Roxy Music, Eno's musical career, and Robert Fripp doing the guitar solo on "Baby's on Fire." I am no expert in the first two, and just learned the latter fact by reading this page.

But the fact that I didn't know the background story only further emphasizes what an incredible, visionary record this is. I had a roommate who played this lots, after hearing it in the 70s from his older siblings. I was hooked immediately. The production is occasionally slightly dated, as are a couple songs ("Cindy Tells Me" especially) but even at it's "worst" it's still fascinating. But at its best??? Simply put, I don't know that I've ever heard a record like this...it's utterly vital sounding in 2004, 31 years after its release. And for my money, if I had to pick the single catchiest guitar riff in history, it's the title track. If you've heard it...you know the one.

I came of age listening to indie rock in the 80s and 90s - yer Pixies, yer Pavements, Yo La Tengos, all dat. And this record sounds like it could be released today up against any of them. Buy it NOW!

5-0 out of 5 stars a very funny record
A terrific record - definitely groundbreaking, probably influential (it sure influenced me), and extremely funny both lyrically and musically (check the spot-on Bryan Ferry impersonation in "Dead Finks Don't Talk," the lyrics of "Paw-Paw Negro Blowtorch," or the sound of robot chipmunks in heat during the instrumental break of same).

The new remaster marginally improves the sound of the original CD release (to my ears, anyway), though the tinny, early-70's studio sound is still very much in evidence. For some reason the LP cover was butchered on the original CD (bad cropping job) but for the remaster Virgin has restored the original sleeve illustration to its full, weird glory.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great remastering but no bonus tracks, bootlet or notes
"Here Comes the Warm Jets" announced Eno's intention from the first track; make groundbreaking, melodic music in the Roxy Music vein. The irony is that, for all intents and purposes, this was Eno's version of Roxy Music. If he were the lead vocalist, main songwriter in the band this is the material he'd be putting out there. It makes a great companion piece to Roxy's third album "Stranded". Ferry and Eno, in retrospect, compliment each other very, very well. As Ferry himself stated, he now wishes they had kept Eno and added Eddie Jobson. I couldn't agree more.

The improved sonics are the chief reason to pick this up. The detail is better, clarity is better (even on a cheap stereo) and the warmth and atmosphere of the original recording becomes evident from the first guitar chord. The packaging is another matter entirely. I like the digipak design but do wish that there were some comments from Eno and his band mates about the making of this classic album. The reproduction of the original artwork seems pretty darn close to the original vinyl version for the most part.

From the stuttering Robert Fripp guitar solo for "Baby's On Fire" to the odd chord progression of "Driving Me Backwards", every track manages to capture your attention. This is Eno's candy store and he's displaying all his sweet wares for the first time. Later albums would focus on other elements but here his talent burst forth in full flower.

Another minor complaint--where is "Seven Deadly Finns" and the material from Eno's only charting EP? It would have made a perfect addition to this album (even if it was released as a two disc set keeping the original albums intact and separate). It's a pity. Still, the DSD technique for transferring these priceless recordings captures the vibrant sound and impact of the original recordings without the sterile atmosphere of CD. Well worth picking up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hitting The Ground Running
Recorded in just 12 days after being squeezed out of Roxy Music, Eno's "Here Come The Warm Jets" (think Golden Showers) showcases all those eclectic interests that were just never going to fit with the languid, jaded oevre Bryan Ferry had his eyes on. Awesome "Frippertronics" guitar, lyrics that showed clever could be funny and an instinctive feel for "catchy" songs that leave you feeling enriched rather than cheapened, Here Comes The Warm Jets rocks hard, fast and hilarious. From the sublime 60's sound of "Cindy Tells Me" to the dark mystery of "Driving Me Backwards", Here Come The Warm Jets just refuses to date, pall, or wear out its welcome. Subsequent releases by Eno have been uniformly impressive but never again would he quite capture the magic of that first assault on popular culture. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good...but could be better
Richard Dorfmeister takes a short hiatus from K&D to collaborate with Rupert Huber on their second effort, "Suzuki." I have not listened to their first("Opera")so I cannot compare the two. What I CAN do is compare it to Dorfmeister's collaboration with Peter Kruder. In this respect it falls short.

Unlike reviewers before me, I think Pearl In (track 1) is entirely appropriate. It pearls in (pun intended) to the rest of the disc and at the end (Pearl Off) is the perfect backdrop to the music, creating a well-rounded sound.

The Disc itself showcases the innovative and mixing talents of the two artists (now I know who contributes the dubbing/echoing sounds on K&D's music). The tracks are mostly average with a few standouts: Suzuki, Honey, Boss on the Boat, and Ocean Beat. Others fall short of the completely mellow sound that we, or rather, I, have come to expect from talents of Dorfmeister's caliber.

I like the CD, but I was expecting more, hence the 4 star rating. Still, if you want the complete collection of the artists' work, go ahead and buy it. In retrospect, you will come to enjoy the entire experience.
:-)

5-0 out of 5 stars More like 4.5 stars...
A great downtempo album, full of minimalistic bass and beats that have grown on me as I continue to listen. Thoughtful pinches of jazz and bossa flavor the album throughout.

I first heard of Tosca off a compilation album with the track "Honey", a very pretty song. When I read that Richard Dorfmeister (of K&D Sessions fame) was behind this music, I knew I had to check it out.

The tracks are nice and consistent, but sometimes too similar; you won't find yourself always able to easily distinguish tracks from one another. You may not easily remember the names to too many songs.

Tosca's first work, Opera, seems a lot more jumbled and much less smooth than this music.

5-0 out of 5 stars SUZUKI
The best relaxing music journey that will take you to another world like the white sands of the tranquil beach where the ocean's whispers embrace your soul.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tosca's best work
The smoothest treble, the funkiest bass, and all manner of silky, sliding beats and noises in between give this Tosca album a style and quality yet to be reproduced by the duo.

After hearing tracks from this album and "Opera," on the internet radio station Monkey Radio, I felt it was my duty to find out who this mysterious 'Tosca' was. Turned out it was made up of Richard Huber and the latter half of Kruder & Dorfmeister, a duo for which I already had much respect. The choice of Opera and Tosca was a tough one, but after listening to both, I can say Tosca is the more solid effort.

Though not as gritty as Opera, Suzuki effortlessly moves through many worlds of sound, keeping a consistently funky beat going for each song. Each song on this album has a beat that will creep into your head without knowing it, and before long you'll know which beat, rhythm, and theme goes with each song on the album.

Even though Dehli 9, Tosca's next original album after this, contains two CDs, don't let twice the CDs fool you. With a second disc containing what sounds like Huber hungover, stammering on the piano for an amazing beat similar to what opens and closes Suzuki, Dehli 9 boils down to one CD with some good highlights, but overall a drag for the latter half.

If you're picking and choosing for the Tosca album to be happiest with, and don't mind missing out on Opera's Chocolate Elvis, Suzuki will keep you in a very happy place for a very long time.

4-0 out of 5 stars New to me and Great.
I had never heard of Tosca before Amazon recommended this to me. I was happily surprised. The first half of the CD is highly textured trance using layers of original vocal percussive sounds and wordless spoken syllables on top of solid, balanced harmonies. The music gets progressively more jazzy as the CD goes on moving into a unique acid jazz/bossanova/trance mix. It has great character and rhythm, and importantly excellent dancibility. If you enjoy Underworld, Orbital, and/or acid jazz then try this out. ... Read more

Using the same exotic, sly production style that made 2000's impressively resourceful Freaks & Icons such a hoot, Dzihan & Kamien's Gran Riserva is filled with sensual, unpredictable sounds and the occasional ass-shakin' beat. After a remix record that further explored the Freaks material (the hit-or-miss collection Refreaked), D&K have emerged with an entirely new set that slips and slides all over the map of trip-hop, lounge, house, and jazz. While the sunny, sexy "Basmati" plays around in the surf, other tracks, like "Drophere," live in a quieter, ambient space. In fact, the duo seem to have a hard time bringing their tone back up after breaking out the excellent but mellow vibe of "Where's Johny Sabatino." Happily, the gorgeous blip-pop loops of "Gutenmorgenduft" come along to give the record a sweet coda, though the track cries out for an extended remix. Mixing Kruder & Dorfmeister-like inventiveness with a restrained up vibe, Dzihan & Kamien create deep, thoughtful music that's fun at the same time.--Matthew Cooke ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Thought my CD was skipping; no, that's just how D+K get down
Subtle, yet in your face, classy, yet raw, vintage-laden, teched-out, scratched-up, plain sick acid-jazz/disco/funk miscellania and minutia like you have not heard before.

This CD is so hot and raw that you can't help but squint and grin when you hear it... only if you're down with the REAL cheesecake, that is (that would be this album, of course).

'Basmati' and 'Sliding' are by FAR the two standout cuts on this album. 'Airport' would be my next pick of the choicest cuts, albeit, if not in the same category as the latter two. I won't waste any time describing these tracks 'cause words won't do them justice, imho.

As a part-time funk musician/composer (piano and keyboards), i must admit that, in general, the only credibility I lend to any piece of music is that earned by its 'groove,' if you will. Some people may use the terms 'drive' or 'beat' instead. With this kind of music, lyrics only matter to serve the groove; it doesn't really matter what exactly they are saying, long as it sounds good with the music; that's why the best lyrics in funk are often just plain scatting or pure nonsense.

This CD is only for people who 'get' what good acid-jazz is; if you don't know the difference, then this album will sound no different to you than the other 50,000 or what not garbage wannabe acid-jazz compilations that pollute the shelves of the 'Dance/DJ' section of your local record store or the virtual ones of Amazon. Perhaps if more people knew the difference, we'd have less garbage to sort through to find albums like this.

5-0 out of 5 stars bloody excellent!
Seriously, these guys, most popular for their song "After", have really hit it with this album. I bought it last night and listened to the whole thing. I never hit the skip forward button on the cd! Honestly, every track was worth listening too. How rare is that? Especially on a cd that's mostly instrumental. To sum up the sound of this cd - it's like a cocktail party with chilled drinks, cool people, and the casual flirtation leaving you with endless possibilities for the evening....for those of you who understand something like that, you'll highly appreciate this album. Buy it now!

5-0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favor....
.....dzihan & kamien sets the standard in downtempo electronica. I picked up Gran Riserva, mainly for the hypnotic track "Thrill" and was very impressed. Not one bad song. Freaks & Icons is very smooth as well.

Others to check out: Afterlife, kruder & dorfmeister, Micatone, grand tourism, and koop.

any other recommendations greatly appreciated at kwalitee@juno.com!

4-0 out of 5 stars yeah... tasty beats!
I'd been eagerly awaiting for D&K to put something new out. I was (and still am) completely enthralled with "Freaks & Icons". "Gran Riserva" dishes up plenty more of those highly addictive middle-eastern flavored beats that I just can't seem to get enough of! My favorite track is "Dundadeova". The musical components are so jazzy & fluid , elastic & funky. I love its 30's syle rag/blues vox layered with lotsa bass and riddim. I couldn't get it out of my head for a week straight and that's saying a lot for someone with musical A.D.D.! "Basmati" is super-sexy... feels kinda like Cleopatra kickin' it in Ibiza! "Sliding" is starting to grow on me with its harder-driving dub textures. Excellent tunes... keep it coming, guys!!

5-0 out of 5 stars the new standard...
It's been a long time since a cd gave goosebumps song after song.....I put this cd on my car and went for a drive, it was an exquisite experience, from song 1 till the end, it was beatiful, danceable, smooth, every song was better than the one before...
After this you have to stop calling them the next K&D, and start calling some new comers "the next Dzihan & Kamien"...all ready a personal all time favorite...just listen to Airport and you'll know what I mean.....enjoy... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I feel liberated
Either I was mislead in thinking B-Tribe to be something they weren't or I started at the wrong place in their career because 'Spiritual Spiritual' was my first CD by them and I was very disappointed in how mellow the songs were. It was hard to distinguish one track from the other because, imo, they all begun sounding the same and there weren't many high moments for me. The lack-luster tunes left much to be desired, but despite that recent let-down I decided to give them another try with their latest release, '5', and I'm so glad I went with my gut instincts because this record truly exceeded all expectations, which were pretty small to begin with. Their latest achievement is a testament to the evolution of artistic growth and while I do hear the similarities to 'Fiesta Fatal' (based on samples, anyway) and 'Sensual Sensual' (my third purchase from them), this by far surpasses those in terms of greatness. Many might complain about the musicians taking a backseat to the electronic beats but I don't find that at all justifiable. If anything it only serves to augment the instruments (primarily their trademark Spanish guitar strumming), which are just as present as ever. The music simply provides the listener with a natural rhythmic flow that enhances the melodic grooves, which are just as relaxing as before but without lulling you to sleep. Or worse yet, boredom.

This formula may sound routine to those of you considering buying this but fear not. I've had my share of repetitive world albums that offer nothing new to support the record as anything worth giving your time to but these 11 tracks are some of the most stunning new age songs I've ever heard before. "Ode To Dolores Del Rio" reminds me of what Enigma used to be (before the changes of 'Voyageur', that is), but I've embarked on something really spectacular here and I must spread the word because I haven't heard anything as good or as original as this in a long while. Luna's sensual voice adds a wonderful touch to the already beautiful harmonies and everything synchronizes to compliment each other so please ignore any negative reviews because there shouldn't even be any!

5-0 out of 5 stars BACK TO HIS ROOTS?
German native and now Ibiza resident, Claus Zundel also known as B-TRIBE has done it again and so glad to hear that he has gone back to the roots of FIEST FATAL.

On his latest creation titled 5 which is CD number 5, he has taking a bit of each and every one of his past creations, making this one a full B-TRIBE sound that is just amazing.

Back are spanish flamenco guitars that seems to be crying out loud for the pain of a loved one or from life it self, electronic beats and ambient textures are back in full force with some opera & medieval them vocals make this a bit different from the past ones.

There are not many vocals tracks featured here once again, but does have plenty of those lament vocals that are already a classic trademark of B-TRIBE sound.

5 is about creating any type of mood and not just a certain one like in Sensual Sensual or Spiritual Spiritual. Enter the journey of B-Tribe and let the music guide you and not my review or others.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Old B-Tribe is Back!
The old sounds of the B-Tribe (i.e., those from their first 2 albums) has returned! I almost didn't purchase "5" after being terribly disappointed in their last couple of records. This album, on the other hand, far exceeded my expectations. It is a combination of the styles used in their first two CDs. If you like Spanish Flamenco and the Enigma style of music, this is the CD for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Takes you higher and higher
If music is a drug to some people than be careful because you might od from listening to this over and over again. Some music gets boring after awhile, especially from some of the "chill out" compilations but not to worry that that would happen here. I think it is the effect that B-Tribe music has on the human spirit; it is the calm after the storm. The music is hard to describe but it definitely has that otherworldly transendental feel, like floating on clouds to worlds unknown. Along the way angelic voices will come and go, combining with the rich electronic musings and stylish Spanish guitar solos, you are on a musical trip within the limitless boundaries of your imagination. There is a soothing fluidity to the music of B-Tribe, like a gentle wave of euphoria that takes over your body, beginning through your senses and enveloping your whole being. It is one of the coolest sounds around and ever so mellow. I like to listen to this disc while taking a morning walk along the local trails, the morning mist adds to the mystery of the sound, the clarity of the music is as sure as the sun rising over the mountains, the gentle thumping bass line is a metronome for my accelerated heart beat, the guitar licks move as swiftly as the river water flows to the city and B-Tribe moves me along observing nature from above, alongside and beyond. It is the song "Misterio"(Mystery), the Spanish sound of guitar and the evolution of a centuries old instrument and the gypsy spirit continuing its sojourn. The Arabic elements, the Asian influences and the Spanish all mesh together in an electronic rendering of spiritual world music that is better than most forays into world music.
" Mi Alma Espanol " is an extremely interesting piece that features the vocals of one, Susan Carrol, for a change of pace that takes you deeper into the cathedral within. Based on a Medieval theme by the twelfth-century nun, mystic and prophet , Hildegard of Bingen, the fusing of guitar and voice is blended with aural textures to create an ambience of another place and time. It is a knockout. This is one of those discs that sounds good most any time of day or night because it creates it's own mood, taking over whatever state of mind you might have been in before and flushing your whole being. It is higher music if you will, music for the soul that leaves you feeling refreshed. I would definitely recommend this disc for anyone that likes world music or Spanish chill out that is some of the most relaxing music being recorded today.

Geat CD. Very pleased. Great music. Would recommend it to anyone. Very relaxing sounds.

2-0 out of 5 stars Mr. Rogers Neighborhood Meets New Age
I love ethereal, ambient, healing New Age. I have at least 250 CDs of this genre in my collection. This will not be #251. Do you remember the electronic piano/casio electric keyboard sound of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood? It is in most of the songs on this album. The few songs that don't have this are decent, but if you want truly healing, contemplative music, try Liquid Mind, Anugama, Raphael or others like them.

5-0 out of 5 stars You can't believe how nice these are....
I am nuts over Mr. Halpern's music and uses for it. I just bought another one and wanted to mention how I loved it. It is called Music for Healing by Steven Halpern, Just came out this year and it was part of a box set called Sound Medicine. Nice and inexpensive for three CDs. Halpern makes great music and has a fan for life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Puts me to sleep! I love it!
I have been purchasing Steven Halpern's CD's for quite a while and now I have a nice little collection. This specific CD reminds me of a place you can go which is completely peaceful.

I love the healing compositions and the grand piano, electric piano, harp and flute. I really think the harp is what makes this so relaxing. It sounds silly, but you really think you are in heaven if you just close your eyes. This music just takes you away to a peaceful place. What it almost does is hypnotize you to sleep.

Dr. Weil also recommends music for healing. I can fell it working. If stress causes disease, which is does, then why not benefit from relaxing music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soothingly Peaceful
From the very first track, the music on this CD is soothing and calming, putting you in an immediately peaceful state. The music is created to respond to the seven chakras, the body's energy systems, providing harmony and relaxation to each energy center. A must have for anyone's music collection for healing and restoration. ... Read more

An oasis of calm amidst the turbo-fueled clubbing tornado that is Ibiza, Café Del Mar is the White Isle's original home of red-eye chill-out vibes and weepy sunset soundtracks. The series of compilations bearing the bar's name, meanwhile, have long patented that authentic sound of Balearic bliss (even claiming Madonna as a huge fan), and this seventh volume maintains the high standards. Founding DJ Jose Padilla may have long moved on, but his successor, DJ Bruno, is clearly well aware of the old adage about not fixing what ain't broke. There's the usual mix of names well known (Moby, Bedrock, Nightmares On Wax) and head-scratchingly obscure (Uko, Lux, Aromabar), but the sound of beautiful music for loved-up and lazy beach bums stays the same. Frankly, this sounds as good at home as it does on the early-morning terraces of San Antonio. --Calvin Bush ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Drifting and Dreaming
Of all the Cafe Del Mar CDs I have (3,5,6,7 and 8), I enjoy listening to this one the most. Jose Padilla has moved on, but Bruno clearly understands the definition of "chillout".
Lux's opener, Northern Lights, sets the pace, and is followed by a remix Afterlife's Breather 2000. Incidentally, Steve Miller has a hand in both groups, and both reappear on Volume 8. Apart from Northern Lights, Deep & Wide's Easy Rider, and Beautiful Strange by Bedrock are worth mentioning. Among the best tracks is Moby's Whispering Wind, which was later included on the Play b sides. I do not know why it wasn't on Play, because in my opinion, it is better that anything on Play. Nightmares On Wax have done an amazing remix of a song by Bush, Letting The Cables Sleep. Bush are a rock band, similar to Blur and Oasis, but this track fits seamlessly onto the album.
This disc is good after a long day, during an easy day, at any time during the day. You can listen to it, or play it in the background. It's not good if you need some solid music to get your teeth into, but otherwise, it's great.

The unique collaboration between Groove Armada's Andy Cato and left-field jazz/dance singer Rachel Foster that first premiered in the summer of 2001 gets an extended airing on the Pursuit of Happiness. The album is a decidedly laid-back affair, which never breaks above the "at rest" pulse of "Into the Sun." It's clear to see why so many have compared the Foster/Catto collaboration with Ben Watt and Tracey Thorn, as most of the tracks are strongly reminiscent of Everything But the Girl. "Best Days of Our Lives" and "Angel" also follow the pleasurable "spaced" style developed on Sade's Lovers Rock. Echoes of Groove Armada's infamous "At the River" feature heavily on "Jericho" and on the windswept album closer "Higher Ground." While all the stereotypical chill-out clichés can be used to describe the album ("lazy summer afternoon music," "4am post-clubbing soundtrack"), Pursuit of Happiness is perhaps three years too late, and although pleasant enough, serves as a quaint reminder of the summer of ‘99. --John Galilee ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome debut!
The pursuit of happiness by Weekend players is a pursuit well worth your time. As an Everything but the girl fan, I was really pleased to hear a similar type of feel. If you like Tracy Thorn's vocals, you'll love Rachel Foster's! She sounds like Sade in a couple of songs, which is not a bad thing at all. "Higher ground" is a track that will no doubt be this CD's best even though it's repetitive nature might initially turn off some, but you can't deny this track's sensual and chill nature. I've been told by a couple of married friends of mine that they love to listen to it because of reasons that you will discover once you listen to it. There are other standouts on this CD such as "I'll be there", "21st century" and "Best days of our lives" which sounds as if Sade sung it herself. I really loved this CD when I initially got it sometime ago as an import and this version includes 2 remixes. I definitely would recommend this CD as it definitely gets you going in all sorts of ways. They really have an excellent mix of chill and dance music that I really liked. I can't wait to hear from more of this duo!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pursuing Happiness - a good thing!
A great soundtrack for your drive to work, and a nice wind down for the ride home - sunny days only - windows down of course. This is definitely a cd that was meant to be played in the car, a soundtrack for warm sunny evenings driving home from the office - longing to be driving home from somewhere more exotic. I was expecting to be overwhelmed and blown away by an eclectic production (ala my first Everything but the Girl disc), but this was not the case. Instead I was presented with a solid, melodic, and inspirational journey with lots of vocals, smooth grooves, and an occasional easy beat to keep the ride interesting. And, I know I've heard some of these tracks before, but I dont know where...that kind of mystery always makes a disc enjoyable for me. If you like Zero 7, EBTG, Jose Padilla and the usual cast of downtempo, eclectic chillout artists, you'll want to go out and pick this up. Enjoy...and don't forget to roll the windows down. The warm breeze is nice this time of night, on the highway of your own pursuit of happiness.

OK, I was falling in love when I had the pleasure of receiving this as a birthday gift. It was really a wonderful soundtrack to have at the time. The music is simply hauntingly beautiful and can make your haeart ache (in a good way) It stays with you and has made very nostalgic wehnever I listen to it. This CD holds a special place in my heart and brings me to a place that I will always cherish. It was that powerful for me. I know it had a lot to do with timing but I think you'll understand when you hear it. I would say 8-9 songs are absolutely stellar which is rare. Buy and listen to it a lot.

Amazon.com essential recording

Eno first emerged as a member of Roxy Music, where thesynthesizer player electronically "treated" the band's otherinstruments, the first indicator that the recording process was itself Eno'schosen instrument.His subsequent career has been one of the most provocativein pop, for not only did he devote himself to such obscure pursuits as"ambient music," but he produced vital albums by David Bowie, TalkingHeads, and U2.Eno made a handful of relatively conventional pop albums in the1970s, andAnother Green World ranks with Before and AfterScience as his most enduring solo work.Another Green World findsEno mixing distorted guitars (courtesy of Robert Fripp) with a variety ofkeyboards and exotic rhythms to create a meditative wash of sound that isnonetheless awash with colorful touches.Particularly appealing is the bubbling"St. Elmo's Fire," with a stunning guitar part by Fripp, and"I'll Come Running," in which Eno shows that even a dedicatedexperimentalist can have a soft heart.From the strange-but-true file, PhilCollins contributes drums and percussion to three tracks. --John Milward ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Eno's best album
This absolutely unique, original work never gets old. Though the Ambient albums get more recognition, Eno's compositions on Another Green World are the best, most interesting music he's ever made. Sky Saw sounds just like its title, as do Sombre Reptiles, Little Fishes, and Spirits Drifting. Eno's band does incredible things with their instruments, and come up an album that served as a pivotal point in popular music. Eno doesn't have the most expressive voice, but it doesn't matter. In the context of these amazing songs, it sounds just right. Everything Merges With The Night is just a gorgeous song.

5-0 out of 5 stars EVERYTHING MERGES WITH THE NIGHT...
Brian Eno's solo material is an incredibly mercurial mix of styles - some albums are made up entirely of songs, some are more experimental and ambient, some are unclassifiable. This recording, originally released in 1975, is a nice mixture, giving the listener a gentle drift into Eno's world.

His releases have always been about much more than just the audio element - and I'm not referring to cover art, although some great examples of visual arts have graced his album jackets, and have been included as inserts as well. There is a visual quality to his music that is such an integral part of the sound that its presence is that of a powerful, almost subliminal force that is felt indirectly rather than in a more overt manner. The mood conveyed by the various pieces on this recording is tangible and real. With some artists, this effect is an illusion - with Brian Eno, it's a reality. His arrangements, while at times giving the impression that they are thrown together piecemeal, anyone who listens carefully to this music will realize quickly that this is far from the case - a great deal of meticulous care has gone into the works represented here (as well as all of his other albums), and the effect of the music upon the listener is deep and premeditated. This is not to say that this music is void of emotion, meaning and even humor - these and many other rewards fill his work.

Eno performs most of the music on this disc - with some help from several very respected friends, such as Robert Fripp, Phil Collins, Percy Jones, and John Cale. The track 'St. Elmo's fire' contains one of (in my opinion) Robert Fripp's most beautiful guitar solos - it starts right after the line '...and we saw St. Elmo's fire spitting ions in the ether', wonderfully illustrating the lyric. Fripp is also credited with 'restrained lead guitar' on 'I'll come running', and turns in a really nice performance on 'Golden hours' as well - the latter played in a more staccato style, as opposed to his usual sustained playing. Eno tailors the sounds of the various instruments to work them into the canvas of each selection - another example of the 'visual' aspects of his art. He's a master at this - and on this, his third album, it's apparent that his career was going to be a brilliant one.

There are several instrumentals included here, and they're great examples of Eno's creativity and imagination. Each one is imbued with its own distinct personality, and the images called up are striking and memorable. The songs have clever lyrics - oft-times mildly humorous, poking a bit of fun at the perceived elitism of 'artsy' composers and musicians - but the lyrics are just another facet of the whole presentation, and very often the vocals could easily be experienced as another instrument, rather than the primary carrier of meaning in the song. For example, in the first track, 'Sky saw', he sings 'All the clouds turn to words, all the words float in sequence - no one knows what they mean, everyone just ignores them', followed by several lines of apparent nonsense to make his point even further.

Although the album has its 'rock' moments, the overall mood is one of gentle, calm observation and experience - returning to the visual art metaphor, imagine strolling leisurely through an art gallery, taking in each painting at your own pace, undisturbed by the world outside or any issues or commitments that might be weighing on your mind. That's the best way to enjoy Eno's music - give yourself the time and space to be absorbed in it. It's a rewarding experience - it was that way in 1975, when I first heard this album, and each time I return to it, I find that to still be the case.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is just so perfect...so clean...so true...
I have listened to this CD numerous times. It just doesn't age, and doesn't grow boring. Friends come over and ask "wow, what is that playing..." and can't believe when it was recorded. This one was inspired by the muse. Top 100 of all time, in my humble opinion.

4-0 out of 5 stars Standout solo effort
Of all of his releases, save his collaborations with Robert Fripp and his duo CD with John Cale, this is the most listenable and the most engaging of the lot. What's true about all of these 70's recordings is that you have before you the blueprints for the aesthetics that Brian Eno would bring to the service of Bowie, Talking Heads, U2, and a host of others. Here are the building blocks that would infuse the sensibilities of Daniel Lanois, Peter Gabriel, both the new wave movement and the new age movement. What would become the revolution in recording evidenced by the Berlin-trio from Bowie is in its nascent stages here. Eno is nowhere near the songwriter of Bowie, Byrne and Bono, but his craft in the studio, and the edginess inspired by Fripp, took what would have been the end of any number of careers and found them new life.
This particular Cd has the best of his writing. Fripp plays as though he were co-writer, and Phil Collins still had something to prove as a drummer. Cale reappears as do a number of other colleagues, but essentially, this will come off as a Fripp & Eno project, with words and a dancebeat to it. Keep in mind, HEROES, FEAR OF MUSIC, LOW, LODGER were next up. GREEN WORLD lets you in on the revolution Eno was about to produce.

5-0 out of 5 stars From the Enoweb site...
Virgin has issued an official statement regarding the problem on the Original Masters version of Another Green World:

"Subsequent to approval of a correct version of Another Green World on reference CD, there was a DDP image file corruption which has affected the track 'Everything Merges With The Night'. Please take your CD back to where you bought it, and the retailer will exchange it for you. Although working as fast as possible to remanufacture, the new discs won't be ready until the end of next week."

So if you plan to buy the reissue, it looks as though you should wait until 11th June at the earliest. ... Read more

Like I said I only vaguely heard one person talk about the involvement with porn. Even though the fact that someone has a religious preference does deal with intelligence, the fact that someone tries to express messages or "various stuff" including "I'm a God-darned Satanist, and, if I wanted, I'd be in [t]his business too" (Alpha Omega). Save your comments for the forums.

4-0 out of 5 stars Inspired Analog Soundings
BOC use analog or analog mimicry to make interesting music that at times sound like old 70's/80's soundtrack's to corporate video promotional videos or old Moog type music for b-movie sci-fi and it works very well. The themes seem to center around the dreamlike wonderland state of children as their voices are featured in some samples. Interesting chill out trip hop that I found myself listening to again and again. I must investigate them further.

5-0 out of 5 stars the breakthrough album
I cannot but laugh at the review of the "music fan from USA" - it has nothing serious as an arguement against the music, in fact:
- BoC's "involvement with porn" is actually the sample on Sixtyniner on Twoism - a man talking about his first time, in fact the text is rather romantic; they have sampled porn movies for some songs, but it is wrongly suggested that this is what they did on Gyroscope on Geogaddi. So, basically, this is their "involvement with porn" - not making porn movies with the famous Super 8 camera, and DEFINITELY NOT on the CD cover, which is a classic;

- BoC use various stuff to make their music more interesting, they implement mathematical formulas, the golden ratio and other things that take a while to be done - so their songs are carefully and precisely produced, with subtle details that add MEANING to the music;

- references to "the birth of the satanic church, hypnotism, brainwashing, and cult movements" can only be taken seriously by a person whose intelligence is... ok, you get the point. Giving one star to this album is ridiculous - this is one of the best records ever made, and its double nature - the child-like innocence and the paranoia of adulthood is in the core of its brilliance.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good Music at first...
Well I thought the CD rocked at first. Extremely interesting music. I liked most of the songs on there. But the legal note in the song "One very important thought" talks about censorship and protecting our constitutional rights. It got me curious why someone would censor music like this. I searched on the internet and didn't find much except somebody saying something about their involvement with porn (Maybe on the CD cover ???). But What I Did Find was that almost all of their CD's are riddled with references to the birth of the satanic church, hypnotism, brainwashing, and the cult movements. Most are completely invisible to the human ear. Don't believe me? Look it up for yourself. The devil is in the details.

5-0 out of 5 stars A blend of enjoyable organic-sounding chillout music
Softer, subtler and more organic-sounding than Autechre and Squarepusher, this production by Boards of Canada provides the perfect blend for some nice background music to chill out to. Staying away from anything remotely similar to an ambient sound, the Scottish duo elaborates around some minimal loops without ever becoming too noisy or industrial, ocasionally adding some voice loops on top, to craft a piece of music that is fairly unique in nature. With longer songs (in the 5-to-6-minute bracket) intertwined around short ones (no more than 2 minutes at a time), the album gradually melts in your mouth, while you enjoy some good company and let the lights of your day be slowly dimmed. ...

What's most surprising about the Pure Moods series is not that it is so popular, but that the music on it actually represents some of the best New Age and modern instrumental music, rather than scraping the barrel. For every piece of Enya pop froth--like her "Only If," which opens the album--there is a deep and impassioned exploration like Sheila Chandra's virtually a cappella "Ever So Lonely/Eyes/Ocean." Yanni's bombastic "On Sacred Ground" is balanced by Moby's soulful trance groove, "Porcelain." Sometimes those juxtapositions don't work out well. The overwrought romanticism of pianist David Lanz's "Cristofori's Dream" can only suffer being sandwiched between the soul-searing vocals of Peter Gabriel's "Games Without Frontiers (Massive/DB Mix)" and the Geoffrey Oryema/Brian Eno hymn, "Land of Anaka." With more than a quarter of the album drawn from the 1980s, there are some influential early gems here for new listeners, including Kitaro's wistful "Silk Road" and Ryuichi Sakamoto's "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence." --John Diliberto ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Probably the best of the Pure Moods
I have to admit that at first I was a little critical of this CD, but after listening to the first two, I became more positive of Pure Moods. The Pure Moods I was erally good, Pure Moods II was okay, but Pure Moods III is the best in presenting some of the best music of the best New Age stars. Most of the music is from the newest releases of New Age performers, most being in the past 5 years, but even so, they still have old classics like "Cristifori's Dream", "Merry, Christmas Mr. Lawrence", and "The Velocity of Love". What I found to be especially amusing about this compilation is it begins with Enya, the New Age "goddess", and Sarah Brightman, "The Angel of Music". Sarah Brightman has done very well lately in the New Age genre, her beautiful voice never lets her down. Enya has been around for more than 10 years, and "Only If", reminds us that she will not go away soon. I might as well give a special compliment to each song. Moby's "Porcelain", which I've heard in commercails, has very amusing electric sounds. Mono sings sweetly in "Life With Mono". Peter Gabriel has been an important figure in New Age and Pop with Real World Records(good thing the makers of this CD included several Real World artsits). David Lanz's "Cristifori's Dream", not only is my favorite on this album, but brings great honor to the beautiful piano and its inventor. Another song by Geoffrey Oryema, "Land of Anaka", is included. Like "Makambo", its from his most well known album, "Exile". Sacred Spirit made a second album and Pure Moods III includes another one of their Native American interpretations. "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence", carries the same oriental moods of "The Last Emperor". "The Velocity of Love", is one of the best examples of the great keyboardist Suzanne Ciani. "Ever So Lonely" by Shiela Chandra is an example of the unique sounds of New Age. "Virtue" by Jesse Cook, is so reflective, lovely, and fun, just like Ottmar Liebert. The beautiful "Silk Road" by Kitaro, who recently won a grammy, is very peaceful and serene. Even though I've heard and seen much of Blue Man Group and commercials, I enjoyed the sophisticated sounds of "Synaesthetic". Yanni's "Sacred Ground", comes from his more recent "If I Could Tell You", and has many layered sounds and vocals, along with some electric sounds, making it a little different from his previous works. Once again, Pure Mods includes the great band, Enigma, with "Gravity of Love", from "Screen Door Behind The Mirror". I love the classical, opera background of the music. Finally, there is "Deliver Me", from Sarah Brightman's well known, "Eden". This song combines pop, new age, and gospel influence. I can safely say this album is worth listening too, and it shows the best of New Age today. If they make a Pure Moods IV, I hope it well include some older New Age wonders, like Mannhiem Steamroller and George Winston. For now, we have the music of today for our ears.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great addition to the Pure Moods family!
What can I say? The Pure Moods series has always had a knack for blending the best music pieces from around the world, and bringing them all together on one awesome disc.

This album features an impressive array of world encompassing songs, such as Enya's "Only if," as well as Native American music such as Sacred Spirit's "Dela Dela." Some songs like Kitaro's "Silk Road" even blend in a sound of the orient into this wonderous album.

One of the best features of this album is that it gives you such a wide range of musical items to chose from, and if you like a certain artist or song, the booklet included gives you all of the information you need to find out what original album/movie the song came from!

If you love New Age music, and if you love to listen to a broad variety of world music, you have to get this cd!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Album, Not Best If Series Though
This collection of Pure Moods CDs started with this CD and was definitely good enough to justify the rest of the entries in the series. These CDs start by taking pop songs, remaking them into semi-new age songs and then collecting them with other new age songs. They're nice and relaxing and just edgy enough to keep mainstream folks interested. Out of the series I would have to say that this is my thrid favorite. If you're heard the others then you should be satisfied with this album, if you're new to the series I would recommend picking up Pure Moods II.

2-0 out of 5 stars New-Age Mello Yello....
This is the kind of utter garbage they use to subdue wild boars in Papua New Guinea. An utterly wasteful collection of schlocky new-age pipey music, all under the guise of the "PURE MOODS" label.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure Moods is pure enjoyment
A friend gave me the original Pure Moods collection several years ago. I played it all the time!
When II was released I hesitated to buy it because I felt it would have to be a disappointment after Vol. I. But it wasn't. II was another delightful surprise.
Then III was released and I did not hesitate to buy it - and it did not disappoint. I see that IV has now been released and I can't wait to hear it! ... Read more

For some, outfits like producer Nick Bracegirdle's Chicane are not easy to swallow. Isolating the more jubilant properties of trance, the beat is a light bounce, levitating above club-dance brainlessness, sounding like a house music hybrid meant for sparkling sunshine instead of dark and sweaty warehouses. They exist in an idealized, pseudo-enlightened fairy tale filled with bright colors and youthful beauty. But that's not the problem. What rankles purists and picky fans is the audacity with which these "techno" artists go after the unconverted common folk, dragging electronic music out of its druggy, "in-crowd" pretensions. Bracegirdle and contemporaries like Olive, Sneaker Pimps, and BT (the last, most noticeably on his Movement in Still Life) are waging a turf war on the boundaries between techno and pop music, each using different tactics and borrowing from different sources. Chicane throws out an especially cutting salvo in the battle here, and it's a doozy. None other than Bryan Adams lends his raspy tenor to the subtle grooves and euphoric dreaminess of "Don't Give Up." It's one thing for Liam Gallagher to lend his pipes to a Chemical Brothers track, or for BT to tap Tori Amos for the ubiquitous club hit "Blue Skies," but Bryan Adams? Is this heresy? Or an ingenious use of vocal color that yields an incredibly hummable dance anthem?Maybe it's best not to analyze What It All Means. Just sit back and enjoy the summery grooves, trusting these ongoing musical inspirations to become whatever they need to be. --Matthew Cooke ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Blend of Techno and New Age
Chicane has done it, combining great techno beats with haunting vocals. Chicane combines the best of techno and new age to make some of the most creative music ever. Chicane gets the help of many people, one major name is Maire Brennan, on the songs "Saltwater", the singer from Clannad. Also appearing on the CD is Bryan Adams, on the track, "Don't Give it Up". However if you don't want the new age feel, there are some tracks such as "Halcyon" which are pure trance. The best song without singing on this CD is "Low Sun", it has a great beat and a interesting Island sound. Another track you may want to hear is "Overture", it is the opening track and gives you the feel of what the rest of the cd is like. Songs like Overlap and Andromeda have a upbeat sound and also are great to listen to when trying to do work or just relaxing, buy this cd now!

5-0 out of 5 stars a timeless classic
Here is a feature length album from Chicane. I recently bought this disc for two reasons: 1) my interest in dance music has revealed many songs that have either been performed or remixed by chicane, 2) many reviewers have given this album high praise. So it was with high hopes that I unwrapped this disc and pushed play. From start to finish, my ears heard one quality song after another. This is a true album and in this genre, I tend to listen to a lot of compilations as it is often very hard to judge the quality of an album by a pop single. Having heard many of the tunes already in compilation form, I gave it a try and a funny thing happened. I just kept playing it over and over. Must have listened to it entirely through about 20 times now and I still love it. Usually, I will buy a few discs and listen to them over a period of time before truly enjoying them, but this one blew me away right from the start. One caveat; as this is not a mix cd, don't expect it to flow as seamlessly as the dj discs do. Otherwise enjoy. I hope these guys have something new on the way soon because I want more!!

3-0 out of 5 stars an ok background filler
I was introduced to Chicane via a friend giving me a copy of the track Halcyon and I just loved it. So with a positive first experience and all the amazon online reviews raving about the album Behind the Sun I went out and bought it.
There are a few stand out moments such as Halycon and Don't Give Up but for me the rest of the album really fails to fly. Personally I find it a bit dreary and thats really what all these reviews are about, personal opinion. This album is also not helped by the fact a lot of it sounds like stuff I have heard before eg I listen to Saltwater and all I can hear is Harry's Game by Clannad.
For atmosphere I would rather listen to Delerium or Conjure One not this.

Wow!

Some kind of a cross between Dance & New Age with a great attitude.

The Critics say this & that about this CD......I am not really a Trance fan, but this CD works really well, with the beats used.

Dance, Spiritual, Meditation??? Does that really work together?
YES IT DOES!

For me I hear the music style of Flock of Seagulls, Enigma, Tangerine Dream & Enya...but again, you can do some serious clubbing with a few of the tunes as well.

I am very please with this CD..... I beleive you shall be too!

4-0 out of 5 stars Over the sun and rainbow
This album is simply beautiful to listen to, reminds me a little of Röyksopp. It's a slow album, relax-dance. Wonderful songs with good melodies. "Saltwater" is a good example of that. A hit the same year as this album came out. If you like it then you will like the rest too. "Low sun" and the dream dance song "Overture" are my favorites. There are 2 versions of both Saltwater and "Don't give up", one of them is with Bryan Adams. They are most famous for slow instrumental songs but that version is actually great. "Autumn Tactics" is not instrumenal either, it features a female voice. A pleasant album overall. ... Read more
