"Mr. Wild successfully creates a soothing and calming atmosphere which could be an excellent addition to ones nightly sleep regimen." William C. Dement, M.D., Ph.D. Director of Sleep Disorders and Research Center Stanford University School of Medicine
"The titles of the first seven Liquid Mind albums have honored values important to me on my life's journey. This eighth album honors the need in all of us for a healthy and regenerating rest each night. I hope you'll enjoy my music, and use it in good health." Chuck Wild
Music in the Liquid Mind series changes little from one recording to the next--good news for contented fans of the long-running bliss-out series created by keyboardist/composer Chuck Wild. The former Missing Persons keyboardist and studio colleague of famed producer Ken Scott (David Bowie, Supertramp) has evolved into a premier space-music specialist whose relaxing, gentle soundscapes artfully evoke the softer side of the cosmos. His eighth Liquid Mind installment, subtitled Sleep, is a lovely, slo-mo spacewalk through serene, gravity-free realms that consistently yields a sustained sense of well-being and calm. Deserving of a spot at the head table with ambient music's most sophisticated sound designers, Wild creates slowly unfolding, universe-at-rest textures using few of the supplemental sonic dimensions (space winds, angelic voices) often employed by fellow stargazers Jonn Serrie and Jon Jenkins. And he sidesteps the small dramas and mysterious fractals that sometimes add a hint of uncertainty to the otherwise like-minded works of Brian Eno or Harold Budd. Happily, you'll hear no new-agey crystal bowls or plucked harps, either; just a warm, resonant, faintly classical glow skillfully designed for relaxation and peace. Pull up a cloud, lie back, and enjoy. --Terry WoodSee all Editorial Reviews

I enjoy several of Liquid Mind's albums, and this is no exception.
I work in a high stress job--don't most of us? I'm also an author, traveling around the country for conferences and signings. When I was in town, I would listen to Soundscapes in the evening, but it just wasn't providing the relaxation I wanted. Then Liquid Mind played on Soundscapes. I can't remember which one. It doesn't matter. As far as I can tell, they're equally amazing. As the music began, I felt that same wave of relaxation I get when I slip into a hot bath to soak or when I go for a massage. I immediately (well, when the song finished playing) got on my computer and ordered all Liquid Mind's CDs from Amazon, and I've played them every night since.
I have to warn you, though, that the music is addictive. I was recently traveling and forgot to take my MP3 player along. For two nights, I tossed and turned, something I never do at home.
