4.0 out of 5 stars Relax and Enjoy January 8, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'd call this a Smooth Jazz album before a New Age one; some of the cuts even sound more like excerpts from movie soundtracks, but it has enough esoteric and ethnic instruments and elements to have it qualify it as such. It may also have to do with the fact that the majority of the artists appearing on it are Asian- obviously as vehicle to showcase their talents. Not that it's a bad album- it's great!- just mis-labeled, in my opinion.

A few highlights from Disc 1:
Moonday: playful and engaging live piece from Andreas Vollenweider.

A Poet in the Afternoon: feels a lot like an extended tone poem, but very enjoyable.

Heart: alto sax, strings and piano combine for a romantic interlude.

Silver Spring Rain: mostly a piano/cello combo until a melancholy yet effective female voice shows up. Wonderful.

White Fantasy: slow, piano only piece; you'll really enjoy Watanabe's tinkling on the ivories.

Waterfall: another piano-oriented track accompanied by a few cameos of middle strings and some keyboards.

Disc 2:
Korea Idea: pan flute, xylophone, drums... very immersive! It's like taking a slow boat down the Han River.

Moon Healing: as sentimental and romantic a tune as you'll ever hear. The tenor sax and strings were beautiful, simply beautiful.

Japanese Roots: the intro definitely invokes imagery of a showdown between two bushido facing each other in a forest of bamboo- and gets drawn out too long- but it soon settles into its own groove. Reminds me of the work of Noel Pointer and George Howard.

Whether you're kicking back reading, exercising or just want a break from the world, this is a very relaxing, somber interlude that'll completely transport you to a quiet, soothing place. And for free!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Brilliant! January 13, 2013
By Rene
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I just started listening to the tracks and they are amazing. I just heard a few songs that reminded me a beautiful soul that came into my life. The songs reminded me of that precious soul I adore. This music placed me in a trance to gaze into the depths of my heart. Tears poured through my eyes before I knew it. Just an amazing set of tracks. They are easy to listen to, have a dash of fantasy, are soothing, jazzy and classical all in one.

I received this album free thanks to Amazon and so far I love it! Thank you Amazon, great work as always and just a wonderful product.

I am open to many genres and im sure this will touch your heart as long as you listen. It is composed quite nicely and hits you where it hurts the most, the confines of your heart and soul.

Thus far my favorites have been:

A poet in the afternoon - A shade of myself and a shade of everyone else, we are all poets at heart.
Rosy Sky In Winter - This one was beautiful and tragic to me
Heart - We are all valiant, we are just afraid most of the time
Silver Spring Rain - Piano is just wonderful!

I hope someone out there enjoys this review, it was a pleasure for me to write.

They are not kidding when they named this album "the most relaxing new age music in the universe". Now I can't talk for the universe, but the music on this album is good. It's an easy listen and well worth the download. Sit back relax and enjoy what your going to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Relaxing New Age Music January 16, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I shyed away from New Age Music because of the title; needless to say, once I started listening, I was hooked. I can't get enough of it. I listen to it in the morning after my first cup of coffee and begin my work at home and in the evening before I go to bed. I get more work done in the day without being all stressed out and find myself falling asleep much easier. Thank You Amazon for making this introduction to New Age Music available to me for free.

This is a collection to play in the background, which is what you expect with a new age offering. Pleasant but not memorable...

I was looking for meditation music and got elevator music. Why anyone could call it "new age" I don't know.
