I felt this release above all the others (Sphere & Space Projections) had the most replay.
The other releases are not bad just more of a electronic sounding (and tempo) which i find distracting when used for getting in a creative head space or for yoga or meditation.
The 3 first tracks are awesome (according to me ;) ) and can wipe out any stress or anxiety. Feel like in a bubble, protected from any "exterior assault" :p
The only problem I really have with this album is track #6. It is completely not needed and is just a song with a piano on it, which is down right annoying and could never put me in a meditative state. Unless it's some ambient piano without any sharp notes changes so rapidly, I cannot listen to any instruments and especially piano. It's like listening to music that makes you "feel" melodies. I dont need to "feel" anything outside of a relaxed, calm, deep meditative state in which I will feel the places I travel to and NOT the music that is playing in the background. That's why these ambient sounds are so good. They make you feel calm, at peace, and gives you a feeling of oneness and positive, protective energy. Track #6 makes you feel sad, inspired, blah blah blah. You get the picture.
Other than this small little problem, the album is great for meditation. Get it if you are an avid meditator and love meditating to Ambient sounds with peaceful and relaxing background to it.
