Michael Stearn's compilation of IMAX film scores and other pieces is a harmonious masterpiece that has so much to offer. His music is rich in ambient themes that are both haunting and powerful. He starts his cd with a track that sounds as if it could have been a part of the film 2001; he uses a chanting choir which eventually extends into a powerful theme. His Baraka theme is equally impressive, as is his Paha Sapa theme. My personal favorites, however, lie at the end of the cd, where he has included three beautiful songs from the film CHRONOS. The CHRONOS soundtrack has been long sought after, for it is out of print. The Chronos main theme is simply beauty itself. I reccomend this cd for anyone who is into beautiful ambient space/film music.

If you have never purchased anything from Michael Stearns buy this album first. This is the tell-tale of all of his albums. In my opinion he is the modern day Mozart of ambient music. His music can provoke strong emotions when listened to. There are many perfect compositions on this album to relax and meditate to. If you are a fan of classical music or other new age artists (i.e. Vangelis, David Arkenstone, Yanni etc.) buy this album. Some of the best ambient music in the world has been written buy Mr. Stearns. Many have recognized his compositons in IMAX theaters. This collection contains such work.

I'm very pleased with this CD. I have a number of Stearns' other projects (Thematic, Textural and Lost World) and this is by far the best. The organ selections are deeply moving and all of the cuts (except #3) touch my soul. #3 has some tribal chanting which doesn't particularly appeal to me but the instrumentals (natural and electronic) on all of the other pieces are very well done and consistent with the "sacred" theme running throughout.
I would describe this album as a "lite" dark ambient with a touch of deep space.

Michael Stearns is one of the leading IMAX composers. "Sacred Site" was named after a seven minute IMAX film, "Sacred Site." It is was filmed in Ayers Rock, Australia during the apparition of Halley's Comet. The sountrack is beautiful and was not available until the release of the CD. "Sacred Site" also contains some other soundtrack work from "Chronos", "Baraka", and other films. I highly reccomend this CD for lovers of Space Music

I think that albums of this genre should be of a coherent theme. That's why I think that the last song - Escalator Theme - is a complete and total misfit for this CD. You're sitting there kinda' zoning out on the rest of the disc then comes along that track that sounds like something they play at the baseball park. I also have his CD Lost World, which is also good to close your eyes to and let your imagination go, while not being rudely interupted by any ballpark music.
