5.0 out of 5 stars Dream stimulating music.... February 18, 2006
By Leja
Format:Audio CD
This album came across my hands in 1987. I was only 14 years old. I was used to listening to rock/pop or classical. When I heard this album, "Down to the Moon" I was exposed to a whole new world. This album takes you to a place of imagination and peace. With soft subtle sounds of nature and even some semi-spaceage sounding music. What Andreas has done with his harp and other instruments in this album takes you to another realm of imagination. Very soothing, however it's almost as if all the songs are telling a story. A seamless story. You will not be disappointed with this CD. When you close your eyes turn this Cd on it will be sure to take you to a place that only your dreams can imagine.

I have since replaced my cassette and now have this Cd. I regularly listen to it. In 19 years I've never gotten tired of listening to it. This album will truly be a treasure in your ambient/new age music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Best!!! December 2, 1998
Format:Audio CD
To those who follow "New age" music, Andreas Vollenweider is simply the best of the genre. And this album is the best of Mr. Vollenweider's catalogue (followed closely by Dancing With the Lion and Caverna Magica). I first heard this album in 1987, and was bowled over. At the time, I was interested in new age music, but it seemed that the albums I heard were either environmental noises backed by synthesizers, or cheesy elevator muzak ala John Tesh. They had no musical substance whatsoever. Then I heard Down to the Moon at a friend's house. What a magical experience! By the time Moon Dance, the second selection, was playing, I knew that I was listening to music that was different than anything I had ever heard before. Subtle complexities interwoven between magical melodies. I rushed out and bought it, and in the eleven years since, I have not heard anything better. If you're looking for ambient music played by a masterful musician, this is the CD to get. I would also look into his other albums (the only one which wasn't up to Andreas' usually high standards was Book of Roses). BTW, I got to meet Andreas last October when he played a concert at Caravan of Dreams in Ft. Worth. It was amazing to hear him recreate these incredible sounds live. He met with his fans and signed autographs after the show, and I found him to be a very generous and humble human being, besides being such a masterful musician.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets! February 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
How I love this album! This was my very first choice for Vollenweider and I was simply mersmerised by its "beauty". Who can say about aesthetics without any comment for the ninth track "The secret, The Candle, And Love". This Grammy awarded CD is the best to date yet. I cannot see any better one still. Hmm... "Dancing with the lion" could be competitive. Never miss this masterpiece!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "New Age" music for non-New Agers October 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
People often assign specific songs or albums as the "soundtrack" to eras in their lives, and for me, this album provides the soundtrack for much of my college life. I don't remember how I stumbled onto it, because I wasn't much of a "New Age" music fan then and I'm certainly not now. But my roommate and I played "Down to the Moon" over and over again. And today, after having largely forgotten about it for many years, I've rediscovered it and put it in heavy rotation on my iPod.

That's because this album is filled with good, catchy music that should be at least palatable, if not downright attractive, even to people who don't like stereotypical "New Age" sounds. No whale calls or pretentious "space music" here. Just well-written and well-performed sounds. Some of it is even, dare I say, danceable.

I've listened to some of Vollenweider's later releases, and they're not bad either. But none of them have hooked me quite the way "Down to the Moon" did. This is a CD you can play over and over as pleasant background music, or really listen to closely to enjoy the artistry of composition and performance. Either way, it works great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical Music in the 23'rd Century December 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have no dobt that this album will be in the Enterprise computer listed under "Classical Music". Hearing Andreas today must be like it was back in

time when people first heard the works of Bach or Mozart when they were new. I discovered Andreas, of all places, on the radio before stations that once played jazz and new age succumbed to hip-hop drivel. I began my journey with Andreas with "Down to the Moon" in 1986 and then bought everything by him I could find, and continued through the "Live" album.

One track in particular stands out as one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard in my life, "Secret, the Candle, and Love". As for the rest of the album, it should be noted that on his harp, Andreas plays rhythm, bass, and lead, all at the same time!!! He incorporates

so many different styles and weaves them together flawlessly. His music can be Middle-Eastern, Oriental, European, Latin American, and jazz at the same time, and it works! His music is truly world class and nothing short of genius.

This is the kind of music one either "gets" or does not. So when you see the Amazon "professional" review of Andreas' later album "Book of Roses", and you read where the author dismisses Andreas as "Tubular Bells of the 90's", consider the old saying, "Pearls before swine."
