After coming to California from rural Chicago at age 10, David immersed himself in all the music he could find. Spending high school and college in various bands and performance groups, he then criss-crossed the country several times playing popular music. He finally settled down to concentrate on developing his own sound, and when computers and instruments could finally communicate to each ... Read more in Amazon's David Arkenstone Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A Slight Change of Mood July 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This recording stands out from David Arkenstone's previous works in two notable ways. First is the addition of lyrics. David has written words for and performs vocals on three of the tracks. While they're not epic poetry, they do compliment the music and provide nice imagery. Second, the tone of the album as a whole is shifted a little more into a "minor key". Earlier albums included some playful tracks such as "Hindu Holiday" from Island or "Dances of Jankayla" from In The Wake Of The Wind. But as this was inspired by the passing of his mother, the pieces David wrote for this one are more contemplative, almost nostalgic. That's not to say they're swamped in moroseness; far from it. In fact the final track "Ride into Midnight" has a sense of urgency that develops through the whole piece, propelling it forward into that starlit night and has become one of my favorite songs.
Overall, the wondeful blend of acoustic instruments, synthesized sounds and simple vocals makes this an excellent CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick R. November 29, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If any artist can you give a feel of what the CD is like just by looking at the cover, David can. The icy blue cover gives you the impression that the CD has a celestial feel, and it does. Over very atmospheric soundscapes, David builds great string and synth arrangements to make this a dynamic CD. Even the vocal tracks are tasteful. moody, catchy, and more importantly, not overdone. For me, the whole CD is the highlight. Great for nocturnal listening, as well as day absorption. Take it from someone who has almost his entire catalogue, it's worth it! You'll save money on those meditation tapes if you did!

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall good effort by Arkenstone. November 11, 1998
Format:Audio CD
David Arkenstone puts in a solid effort on his album Another Star In The Sky, dedicated to the memory of his mother. Sure, Arkenstone's not a great singer, and he's only a mediocre lyricist. His real gift is melody, and there are plenty of strong tunes here, ranging from the Moody Blue-ish "Far, Far Away" to the Native American themes of "Canyon Of The Moon" and "Naked In The Wind". Nice!!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good album July 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Another Star in the Sky is David Arkenstone's sixth full-length album. It was released in 1994. There are ten compositions; three of these feature lead vocals from Arkenstone--"Far Far Away," "Voices of the Night," and "Taken by the Wind." The material is in a New Age musical direction. I like all of the tracks. Overall, the musicianship is gratifying and the sound quality is pleasing. My favorite pieces are "Far Far Away," "Voices of the Night," "Another Star in the Sky," and "Taken by the Wind." The serene, ethereal "Far Far Away" presents nice, ambient vocals from Arkenstone. The pretty "Voices of the Night" displays airy, charming singing and appealing fretless bass guitar playing from Arkenstone. "Another Star in the Sky" is an admirable composition that exhibits memorable piano work from Arkenstone. On the catchy "Taken by the Wind," a smooth and enjoyable job is done by Arkenstone with the vocals, the keyboard work, and the fretless bass guitar--there is also a notable, attractive refrain. Arkenstone is a talented composer, arranger, and musician; I like how he incorporates different instruments--orchestral and exotic, for example--into his work. His music has a lushness and earthiness that impresses me. The CD packaging includes an essay written by Arkenstone, the song lyrics, and several illustrations; also, there are some graphics behind the CD tray. The disc is just over 51 minutes. Another Star in the Sky is a recommendable album.

4.0 out of 5 stars The worst of some artists is better than others' best. February 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I'm in the process of collecting Arkenstone, having only discovered him a few months ago. What I've been missing! This is not the strongest of the six albums I have to date, and at first the vocal tracks irritated me (I had gotten used to thinking of him as an instrumental artist, and was not expecting them), but they've grown on me. "Pool of Radiance," "Canyon of the Moon," and "Ride into Midnight" especially are worth the price of admission. "Naked in the Wind" has my partner muttering, "I'm sure that's Cheyenne." Don't forget to look for more of Arkenstone's work under 'Troika' a trio that performs his compositions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good. July 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is kind of uneven. I don't like the vocal tracks much because of Arkenstone's voice and lyrics, but the rest are all good, a few excellent. Pool of Radiance and Ride into Midnight are very cinematic, and they are my favorites; Another Star in the Sky is also very good. If you like Native American themes in a New Age setting, you'll like Naked in the Wind. It's all good background music for reading or enjoying nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music for the celestial realm July 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the CD I have with me when I fly, because the music on it feels so right, the perfect complement to the clouds. From the opening piece on the album, you are transported. You look out the window of the airplane, and the music flows like a movie script. The first time I listened to it airborne, the cumulus clouds were several hundred feet in the air,and it felt like Mr Arkenstone had composed the music especially for my flight.

It's clear that Arkenstone spent a great deal of time looking up at the sky while he was composing this work. Some of it - if not all - was written in honour of his mother, who must have made a hugely positive impact on his life to have had this music created with her in mind. The music is atmospheric in the extreme, with airy voices in the lyrical songs and twinkling stars clearly painted in the instrumental pieces.

David Arkenstone is one of my favourite composer/musicians (he plays about any instrument known to man) and this album, which I come back to time and again, is my favourite flight music. It is soothing, imaginative, lulling; I intend to have it with me on a long transoceanic flight I am taking soon, and it doesn't get stale either. Beautiful, blue, radiant star/cloud/skyscapes, to illustrate your dreams and imaginings. One of his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Arkenstone Disk
very typical of his other works produced in this time and was an extension of what I really liked about his music of this era.

3.0 out of 5 stars PLEASANT CELESTIAL JOURNEY
This early 90s effort is certainly pleasant enough. Heavily synthesized with sweeping strings simulations, it's refreshing to hear 'real" instruments as well. Read more

Music is typical of what you can get out of the new age scene. Certainly not the best out there, but I won't say it's bad either. The only song I liked was the first one. Read more

This earlier work by Arkenstone and I enjoy it more than a lot of his later work. Not one of my top 2 CD's by this artist though: "Celtic Book of Days" and "Spirit Wind".
