3.0 out of 5 stars Another nice Shadowfax CD March 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is Shadowfax's sixth CD. It is the first not on the Windham Hill label. It is 45 minutes long and has the trademark new age sound, very crisp and clean.

The CD starts out rather stale, with nondescript compositions that could have come from any one of the earlier five CD's. It is nice music, but we have already heard it many times before. And, the compositions are not as good as the best of the earlier albums.

Things start to pick up in the second half of the CD. Maybe that is because the tracks were composed by the new members of the group. They seem to breath new life into the group.

This is not a bad CD. It just retreads the music of the ealier works. If it were the only CD by Shadowfax, it would be something special, but the others are better. This probably deserves three and a half stars. The first half is in the 2 to 3 star range, while the end of the CD is 4 stars.

This is the Shadowfax CD that won a Grammy award. But, the Grammys are always several years to decades behind the times. Shadowfax really deserved a Grammy for one of the first 3 CD's for their contribution to a new musical style. Jethro Tull did not get a Grammy until the eighties, and it was for a mediocre album in the wrong category.

5.0 out of 5 stars Earned them a grammy, for good reason October 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In a few words: New Age world music meets modern dance.

The band wrote these songs for a now obscure dance performance of the same name. Putting their distinctively complex style and typically insane array of ethnic instruments to danceable rhythms made for an album of exotic new age modern dance music unlike anything put out before or after.

Like many of their albums, it has the feeling of a soundtrack to a great fantasy video game you've never played. It actually predates such soundtracks by almost a decade.

They won a grammy for this album when it came out, but it didn't seem to stop Capitol from dropping the artist. Now the album is out of print. Go figure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! August 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fantastic CD! I just love the incredible musicianship of Shadowfax. Hard to find bands around now who play such high quality music. This particular one hasn't quite grabbed me in the same way that some of their other music has but it is still music that you can listen to over and over so that it grows on you. I look forward to listening to it for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a monkey wondering the forest March 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD
One song is good, they nailed it, and they give you the feeling like you're exploring the wilderness as guilt free primal ape, touching things or experiencing things for the very first time.
if they would have kept the feeling without messing up the songs by adding layer upon layer of additional sounds, this would have been a great cd

5.0 out of 5 stars Folksongs for a Nuclear Village by Shadowfax March 15, 2011
By Patrick
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the only album by Shadowfax that you'll need to buy! If you purchase the collection you'll quickly learn the progression goes full circle. You need not go far before your back to where it all began. In the beginning there was "Folksongs for a Nuclear Village."
