1.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better, October 12, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Oasis (Audio CD)
I've listened to and loved my share of new age/space/cosmic or whatever you want to call it music, but this simply is not soothing, not relaxing, and doesn't "put me in another place". The individual tracks ARE good and melodic for the most part, but the absolutely jarring blending/mixing of one track into another ruins what could have been a 5-star disc. For a moment I thought I'd might rip the tracks onto a computer and re-edit them, fading in and out the tracks without the song before or after. Then I realized how pointless that would be since the individual songs are so short. Just as one song gets going and you really start get into it, BAM the next song barges it's way in. Sometimes that technique works well, but not on this CD since the following song clashes with the preceding one. It's like listening to a piece by Mozart, following it with something by Led Zeppelin, then following that with something from 1940's Frank Sinatra. Granted, it's not as extreme as that, but hopefully you understand that once a mood is finally established, it's shattered.

After listening to Vangelis and Tomita, I'd heard so much about Kitaro that I searched for this CD as well as Ki. What a disappointment both were.
