Product Description

Amazon.com

New Age music, ambient electronica, and spiritualized hip-hop received their first major, K-Tel-like treatment in 1996 when Virgin Records assembled Pure Moods. The "As Seen on TV" compilation quickly became a hot seller, and it would be nice to think that its popularity has as much to do with the music as the marketing. To be sure, Pure Moods offers genre hits aplenty: from Enya's "Orinoco Flow" to "Sadness" from Enigma; from a dance mix of the "X-Files Theme" to edits of vintage electronica from Mike Oldfield (Tubular Bells) and Jean Michele Jarre (Oxygene). Beyond other selections of beat-enhanced chants and a few other popular themes ("The Mission," "Twin Peaks"), the album, refreshingly, also includes a few selections noteworthy only for their originality and quality. A three-track section near end of the 70-minute disk features affecting soft African chants from Geoffrey Oryema, followed by "My Wife with Champagne Shoulders," a dollop of regal, faintly ethereal romanticism from master film scorer Mark Isham, then a robust piano workout, "The Promise" from Michael Nyman (The Piano). With so many elements of interest on its 17 tracks, the album's broad diversity is sure to have broad popularity. --Terry Wood

A couple of years ago I saw a commercial for this on cable. I very was interested, though I didn't get the CD. My father, however, gave me one of Enya's CDs and I really liked her music. I later got CDs by other New Age artists and I started to really love New Age. I finally got this CD and I must say, it is amazing. Each and every one of these songs are great. There are energetic songs by Enigma, Enya, and Sacred Spirit and there are also soothing tracks, such as "The Last Emperor", "The Promise", and "Tubular Bells". I also really loved "Oxegene IV" which is great for anyone who likes 70's New Age. My favorite song on this CD is "Adiemus". It's one of the greatest songs I've heard in a long time! This CD has really great music. It's a worthy buy.

I once saw a commercial for this CD way back when it was the first in the series. I became very interested in the way that the CD's songs were so different from anything else I'd ever heard before. Then, as time passed, I saw how popular this series was. I realized that I was missing something big.
So I started listening to samples of songs from the Pure Moods series, and then I knew I had to get it. I decided to start with the first of the three CDs.
And WOW! These songs are incredible! This is not pop, rock, rap, or anything you'd hear these days. This is just plain COOL. I like every song, but my favorites are "Adiemus", "Yeha-Noha", "Return to Innocence", "The Last Emperor", and "Crockett's Theme". When I heard "Crockett's Theme", I knew I had purchased a great CD.
Every one of these songs seems to carry you away to another world, where you're lost in your own dreams. You simply forget everything around you as you listen to the enchanting harmonies and distinctive melodies. Even if you can't understand what they're saying, you love how it's so different from whatever you hear on the radio these days.
You haven't heard great music until you've heard this CD. I can't wait to get the next one in the series.

This CD is actually what it claims to be: "Pure Moods". I bought the CD and was amazed by the diversity and flow of the songs. All of the songs are moody, without being depressing. Enya, and Enigma, in particular highlight the songs. The last song is my favorite, "Lily was Here" by Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics fame). This CD is perfect for rainy days in Seattle, or background music while hanging out around the house. Worth every penny!

This is an absolutely wonderful CD! I would say that this is a must have for all new age fan. Every penny I spent on Pure Moods was worth it! I totally fell in love with it. Here are the songs I thought were the best:
Enigma - Return To Innocence: My favorite song on this CD. It has a great tune and very meaningful lyrics.
Enya - Orinoco Flow (Sail Away): Hey, if it's Enya, it's good!
DJ Dado - X-Files Theme: Who can forget this great theme?!
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells Part 1: This song always reminds me of the movie, "The Exorcist" and it's very chilling. That's what I like about it!
Enigma - Sadeness: Again, great tune. I just think Enigma is EXCELLENT!!
Adiemus - Adiemus: A terrific sounding song. Makes me feel like I'm in some sacred place, hard to explain.
Jan Hammer - Crockett's Theme: What can I say? Sounds pretty good.
Sacred Spirits - Yeah-Noha: An Indian song, I think. It's OK and I enjoy listening to it.
Angelo Badlamenti - Fire Walk With Me: This song is very calming. I like it!
Geoffrey Oryema - Makambo: Great!
Mark Isham - My Wife With Champagne Shoulders: Very soothing.
Michael Nyman - The Promise: I really like the tune of this one.
The songs I didn't really like were Sweet Lullaby, The Mission, The Last Emperor, and Lily Was Here. But still, the CD is very excellent and I recommend it to everyone. This song is very soothing to the soul. :)

About two to three years ago I saw the "Pure Moods" CD advertised on TV and I was at first attracted by the very popular "Return to Innocence" by Enigma, though I did not but it. This last Christmas I received it from a family member, and I'll have to say I was not dissapointed. This CD was everything I hoped it be. It's basically a sampler of various New Age and World music artists. "Return to Innocence" is perhaps the introductry to the rest of the CD, though its pop-rock style does not always agree with the rest of the CD. It has great variety, with the bouncy "Orinoco Flow", the strong chorals "Sweet Lullaby" and "Adiemus", the African chant "Makambo", or the electronic "X-Files Theme" and "Tubular Bells Pt.1." There are a few oddities on the CD, however. Though it is definitely New Age, "Oxygene Pt. 4" is also definitely not worthly of the rest of the album. The jazzy "Lily Was Here" is not 'pureley mooded.' "My Wife With Champagne Shoulders" may be a pretty song, but it's not the New-Agey type sound the other songs have. Though there are a few reservations, over all this is one of my favorite CDs and I strongly recommend it to anyone who likes to take a musical journey.
