I found it to be very relaxing at the end of a long day, and loved the entire album.

I had to review this despite usually not bothering. This album needs to get more attention than it has. It's simply a perfect collection of piano music. This sort of thing isn't my usual cup of tea. Classical music just seems too complex and long for me to sit and listen to it for long enough to appreciate it or even give it a chance.

But this is something else, everyone should have a copy in their house. It's the most relaxing and de-stressing experience you could ever ask for from a music album. I thought other easy listening artists were the perfect tonic to today's modern stress filled life but nothing can compare to the beauty of this lady's work.

Helen Jane Long has composed thirteen gems that flow over you and soothe you. I just put the cd on, lie back and relax. The thing that makes this so special is because although I don't doubt Long's skill as a piano player, she has composed tracks that sound (probably deceptively) simple. The music is repetitive and simple but this works a treat, it really helps you relax.
I'm sure many would argue it's too repetitive but this is what makes it relax you, if given a chance, it really does just lift you from the stresses of life.

The tracks may sound simple and repetitive but they also really are great at capturing and conveying emotions, moods or themes.
This really is music to make you think and relax. And if it doesn't do that for you, the very least it offers is some very relaxing background music for you while you're at home.

I'm a huge fan of another great pianist, Ludovico Einaudi, who also creates haunting, memorable and soothing music. I found Porcelain through a link of his albums. I ordered this album from the tiny soundbites that amazon offers and am NOT disappointed. I had outgrown George Winston's piano music years ago; it just began jarring on my nerves. Not so this album: it's fluid, not repetative, or boring. I enjoy listening to this both as background but also purposefully listening to it at night, by candlelight. I only wish she had more albums to buy. Highly recommend.

I heard Long's music first on my local classical music station, and found it haunting, poetic, relaxing, and more. It was unusual for the station, because it struck me as more Windham Hill than classical, but I enjoyed it even more than any Windham Hill recording I have. What a delight!

I heard many songs from this album on Pandora while at work. Everytime I toggled to my internet screen to see what beautiful song I was listening to, I started to notice that many of the songs were Jane's. The music is simple, not overdone, well-arrainged, and divinely beautiful. I'm a big fan of Yanni and Enya, and while their music tells stories, Jane's music is more emotion/state of mind. You won't be disappointed!

This piano/violin and cello cd allows you to believe,create and imagine visions within you own mind.
Like recalling a movie scene with a soundtrack, this cd captures how the lights shines on the first day of snow for me when I listen to it driving through Yosemite or sitting on my blanket near the ocean.
Relaxing sounds without being intrusive.

One day while I and my brother were listening to pandora radio while playing video games and the song expressions came on. It brought us both to tears literally with the emotion and feeling expressed as we listened to it. While slightly embarrassed both of us agreed that we had found a new favorite to add to our list of favorite pianists. Very rarely does music that doesn't have some form of actual nostalgic connection have the effect that her music did one me. Later we were blessed again to hear her song release as well. Both are perfect and while i have yet to hear the other 11 tracks I am confident from listening to embers as I type this that they will not disappoint either. For those who may want to listen first i suggest using grooveshark or pandora to listen before purchasing. I hope this review is helpful.

Edit:I recently was able to listen to both albums and was correct in my assumption well worth the investment.

There is good piano music, and then there is Helen's hauntingly beautiful work! If you have any interest in piano music at all, this should be on your list of things to purchase. I recommend that you pick up this album, at the very least it's great for concentration, musing, study and romance (heh heh! ;) ).

I just love this album and am disappointed to learn that Helen has no others to offer.

I am using this to stay focused as I work. It's so beautiful, and calming that I can work for many hours without distress.

I am rested. Thank you, Helen.
