A word of caution; this disc is a love-it-or-hate-it proposition. Having said that, I loved it. It is difficult to describe. You won't find any "singles" on this program, but you may well find the music staying with you. It creates an ambiance, or mood, but it's not mood music. It's not a 'concept' album, at least I couldn't find any message. It has Native American blood running through it, but it's not a 'message' disc, either. The music takes you somewhere. You almost have to listen to it, and listen to all of it, to know whether it's for you. The pieces are different from each other, but again, there is that mood, that blood, that common thread that you feel throughout. The sum of it is much greater than the individual parts. Perhaps the best recommendation I can give you is to look at the list of performers who wanted to be involved in this, and trust their judgment.

I've been a fan of Yes for many years, so when I found this CD and it said that Jon Anderson was on it, I adopted it immediately, figuring that it was worth the few bucks just for his contributions. Well, lo and behold - the entire CD is fantastic! Every song is well crafted and the guests were perfect for each one. The piece that's attributed to Jim Morrison is actually recordings of his poetry put to music, which is great. The native american artists are wonderful also. If you can't find anything on this CD to be happy about, then there's definately something wrong with your ears! The two songs that Jon Anderson sings remind me of his days with ABWH. I also found the bit that Martin and Charlie Sheen speak to be beautiful. I finally found a great buy in the cut-out bin!

I haven't listened to it carefully. I can't get past the lead vocalists lousy voice. I got it for the songs that Jon Anderson sings on. The one song, "Far, Far Cry" is great, really the only one I like so far.......I should have gotten the one song as a single MP3

In the genre (or sub-genre) of native American inspired new age this is one of the best CDs I've ever heard. It's not R. Carlos Nakai where it's almost all flute and drums, and to be honest probably more authentic. It's more ethereal and ambient. There are also passages of Jim Morrison reading poetry. In any event. I heard this as a cassette tape years ago and it disappeared, It's impossible to get on iTunes so I was happy to find a used copy on Amazon. If you like this kind of music nab yourself an inexpensive copy. Peace. Mitakuye oyasin.

I thought this was a phenomenal piece of work by artist such as Simon LeBon,John Taylor,Susannah Hoffs,Toni Childs,John Waite,Johnathan Elias and front man for YES,Jon Anderson.Songs like "Follow In My Footsteps" and I've Not Forgotten You" are very eclectic and stick with you over and over.It had been over 19 years since I heard the album again and have been searching for it everywhere.I went to so many record stores while serving overseas and in the states looking for it but was always told it was out of print.Found it on here,bought it and popped it in and right off the bat,after almost 20 years,still remembered word for word every song.I suggest if your in the mood for something not rushed and very relaxing,pick it up and you won't be disappointed.

Yes, this is art. It is a completely and beautifully put together project using many, many well known musicians that wanted to participate. I'm very glad that they did. Rarely does one come upon something like this. It is not to be looked at as a Jon Anderson or Jim Morrison piece of work. To do so is to make a big mistake. Buy this, listen to it as a whole, let it sink in and you will understand what I mean...and you will be grateful for each participant for making this come out as the piece of art that it is. I rarely say that about such projects, but I'm proud to say it about this one! Good work, people!
