My quick review of this great new album:

`Awake' has a very unassuming beginning but finishes with an energetic flourish. `Two Paths' provides a nice rhythm with some faster paced lines seemingly fading in and out of the background that really adds some energy. There is also some fantastic percussion in a track that is really befitting it's name. `The Same Sky' is beautiful, flowing track that makes the perfect soundtrack for watching clouds go by. `The Crossing' has a deep mysterious feel at the beginning and then opens up about half way through with some big percussion and another strong finish. `For the Fallen' begins quietly enough but then builds up to an emotionally strong second half. `The Lesson' offers a very intriguing change in instrumentation and layers that creates an erotic-type of mood, further developed by the guitars that make their entrance early on. This track has a sound unlike most of the others on the album. `To the Ends of the Earth' begins and ends with a very ethereal mood, but in between the rhythm really ramps up, giving the feel of an action movie score cue. The album finishes off with `Lifted' which, not surprisingly, is a very uplifting track with a nice positive vibe. A great way to finish off the album!!

What I really enjoyed about the album is the ramp up of the energy and really strong finishes in many of the tracks. So many other albums seem to want to put you to sleep by slipping from one track to the next, but this one puts you at ease at first, then they bring on the power and the goose bumps. Just like their previous album "Treasure", this is no ordinary new age album. Unfortunately, like many of the albums of this type, the sound samples will not even begin to do it justice. So just pick this one up anyway, you won't be disappointed!

Both David Helpling and Jon Jenkins as solo artists put out truly remarkable, magical albums, the former wiht "Between Green & Blue" and "Sleeping on the Edge of The World", and the latter with the eerie "Flow" and foggy-urbanite "Beyond City Light", all of which are magnificent CDs of their own nature.

Yet came 2007, the two artists brought their magical styles together to create what I considered at the time, and still do, among the best New Age albums of all time, "Treasure" which was totally different from either artists solo albums and yet took me on a journey into a totally different sonic landscape, or should I say deep chasm, of beauty and spirit especially during foggy or rainy nights on the edge of civilization.

Three years later, low and behold, a deeply anticipated follow-up "The Crossing" is released and WOW! I never thought they'd be able to but here, I think they even managed to surpass "Treasure". "The Crossing" I've had for only four months and already, I can sense that this will become perhaps among my top twenty favorite New Age released of all time. The previous CD "Treasure" had a dark, late night, feel of leaving civilization as a whole or as the cover portrayed, going into a deep cave beyond daylight and into the unknown. "The Crossing" on the other hand, has a slightly brighter but at the same time, colder mood altogether. The mountaintop poking through low clouds at sunset perfectly defines the actual mood of "The Crossing": Gray, evening, sunset, wintry, and very cold in feel yet exhibiting beauty of a rare scale.

The opening notes of "Awake" almost sound perfectly identical to the echoing notes of the ending of "The First Goodbye" from the previous album only for it to begin and culminate in an intense and urgent-feeling track.

From the moment I first heard David Helpling's "Sleeping on the Edge of the World" album I was all in. The music Mr. Helpling creates is very ambient and moving. It is not background or elevator music. It is very deep, complex, layered, and wonderfully produced music that is tops in the genre.
The latest album,"The Crossing", is a wonderful and beautiful album, just as their previous album, "Treasure".
If you are into the ambient, new age type music, these are two of the top artists making some great music with production that compares to none.

Just when you thought David Helpling & Jon Jenkins were at their heights with the album 'Treasure', the album 'The Crossing' has surfaced after 2 years of waiting. And what a stunning album it is!. And I always thought 'Treasure' would be unbeatable, boy how wrong could I be. With 'The Crossing' they have pushed their creative musical ideas and inspiration to the next level. The album itself is a highly melodic synth journey, very similar to 'Treasure', only this time there is an ever deeper (and somewhat darker) melodic feel to it. All the tracks are incredibly well structured, and contains some of the most gorgeous sonic soundscapes I have ever heard before. Both the synths and the percussion plays a very important role in this album, with it's melodic themes washing over you on most of the tracks. It is so lush and infectious that you will want to listen to the album on repeat, again...and again!. With tracks such as 'From the Smallest Seed' and 'To the ends of the Earth', these artists have eclipsed themselves. These tracks are a synth feast for your ears and contains the most stunning synth sequencing I have ever heard in my entire life, no doubt about that. It reminds me alot of tracks such as 'This Day Forward' & 'The Frozen Channel' from the album 'Treasure'. Brilliant melodic atmosphere!. Other notable tracks are 'For The Fallen' and 'Not Forgotten'. There's a sense of depth and mystery to them and will surely evoke your deepest inner feelings. Another moody yet melodic piece is 'Two Paths. With this track you will be in for another highly cinematic treat!. It builds very slowly with echoing guitar textures and lush synth work, and has tons of atmosphere to it. It's another melodic soundscape that washes over your ears in a very delicate way.Read more ›
