5.0 out of 5 stars Kyrie January 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've always been a dedicated fan of Anderson's spitiruality. Not only through some of its lyric but also by the way he put faith in music. Angel Embrace is an absolute masterpiece. Not only for the wonderful short intro Myo Maya (an opening anthem) til the last note of the CD.
I discovered the power of this album when I played it, in my church, one evening after evensong, when everybody was gone, and I was alone. with the space, the candles, the altar and the cross, and when the music started.....the magic happened.
It was like if the whole choir of heaven was rehearsing Angel Embrace ...Like if some beams of music were filling the whole church, Like a new pentacost, a musical one...
It just sounded like if a new hymnal book from Heaven was being played in my little church... WAOH! that's all I can say in human language....It was probably the strongest religious experience I ve ever made in my carrier as an Anglican minister..
So, go, buy it, turn the volume up, dim the lights in your living room, lighten a candle and enjoy ....A gift from Heaven to Mankind

5.0 out of 5 stars Anderson Transcends "Prog" Genre (Yet) Again. February 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you've only ever heard Jon Anderson in Yes, this album will be quite a shock to you. Jon has laid down a very beautiful album that consists of primarily instrumental music.
Relying heavily on synthesizers, Jon crafts a very "realistic" sonic landscape. The listener doesn't so much as hear this music as experience it.
It's almost minimilist, but it's also very emotional: two qualities that are very difficult to pull off together. Turn the lights down, get a good, hot cup of tea, and let this music wrap you in Jon's Angel's Embrace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Soothing September 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I found this CD to be very soothing. Had a bad day? Just put on this CD and feel the tension flow out of you. Not a lot of words to distract you. And what words there are give you a feeling of peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glimpses of beauty November 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a 'slow' album in the best sense of the word - slow to get into perhaps but once you do you'll begin to appreciate the way it slowly evolves. The strong but subtle melodies unravel and develop so gradually that you have to adjust your way of listening so as not to miss them. Which of course makes this perfect music for relaxing or unwinding to.
The album is mostly instrumental, played on keyboards, with warm textures and the occasional gentle song. The songs don't break the mood but complement the instrumental pieces in style and theme.
While certainly more suited to late night home listening than the car, 'Angels Embrace' is rewarding listening, whether in the foreground or background, and offers some glimpses of genuine beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jon's Adventures in Space April 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Breaking new ground for Jon is nothing new. "Angles Embrace" is sonic, airy (almost spacey), meditative, soothing and totally relaxing! His occasional vocals only enhance the overall effect. Synthesized music leans heavily on tonal blendings and harmonics and less on rhythm. Nature sounds blend perfectly into the background. Play this CD in repeat mode and it's hard to tell where the last track ends and the first begins. A excellent addition for Anderson fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lilting melodies, meditative song... October 13, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This contains some of the most beautiful and healing music I have heard. On first listen, it instantly became my favorite New Age music CD, and I find I listen to it often. The music is primarily meditative synthesizer, with the ethereal vocals of Jon and children bringing one to an other worldly state. Truly a gift from the divine!

4.0 out of 5 stars A spiritual and relaxing energy! June 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
With the music of Angels Embrace Jon Anderson manages to create a loving and relaxing atmosphere that fills your entire body with calmness and piece. As a fan of both Yes and New Age music in general I find this record to be very suiting for relaxing and dreaming. Jon manage to put a more spiritual side to the music at the same time as it's relaxing like the New Age music from Steven Halpern and Vangelis. With the mixes of the typical Jon Anderson melodies like we find in songs like "Change We Must", and an overall instrumental spiritual sound that really has no melody but a spiritual, relaxing and light sound it fits perfect to get your soul and heart lighter after a stressful day!

5.0 out of 5 stars take the time June 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As an artist I paint while listening to music. I ordered this only because I knew of Jon Anderson's music. I had no idea that this would become my favorite CD. I almost can't concentrate on painting as I listen to the rich, full, beautiful sounds. If ever there was music from heaven this is it. How anyone who takes the time to listen could not be transported to another universe in peace is beyond me. I wish I could thank Jon for making life richer for me.

The Album is up to Jon's High Standards. Suitable for a lazy Sunday afternoon, or on a rainy day. Don't drive listening to this.
