By William Merrill VINE VOICE on January 21, 2003
Format: Audio CD
This set does live up to the title, with some lush and romantic themes. However it is merely a collection of previously released tracks, not new material. The songs come from the Fresh Aire CDs, other Steamroller discs, and the Day Parts series. (Technically speaking the Day Parts cuts are NOT Steamroller music, since Chip Davis put those CDs out under his own name and not M.S. But since Davis is the guy behind MS, that's a fairly meaningless distinction.) Anyhow, the selections here are romantic, especially the beautiful "Nepenthe" from FA6. The song sequence was also thoughtfully laid out so that the songs flow from one to the next pretty seamlessly. Still, the lack of new material makes this not much better than a "mix tape" you could have assembled yourself. As a curiosity point I counted all of the M.S. collections of re-packaged material. There are now nearly as many of those (6) as there are Fresh Aire albums (8).

Chp Davis don't have any new complete record, from FA8 (it doesn't include the summer song and bird song records, most ambient than music. This one is onlya a compilation, if you have a FA and Chip collection, don't buy it. If you don't have any, buy it, is good.

This is collection of Davis' romantic melodies from other CD's and some added for this.
Especially fond of the beautiful oboe on "Bittersweet," "The Sign of Love," and "Nephenthe."
There is variety here, from some big-band type in "Slo Dancin' in the Living Room" for Chip's mom to nature inspired pieces of "Moonlight at Cove Castle" and "The Seven Stars of the Big Dipper."
Good mood music to set tone or just for enjoyable backdrop. These also make great special occasion pieces, as notes suggest some have even used at weddings, etc.

I have a lot of the Mannheim Steamroller CDs. I enjoy them greatly, however, this CD was disapointing. Instead of feeling in a romantic mood, it made me sad. Although, I still love the group, and will continue to buy their CDs, this one I would recommend passing up if you want a romantic evening. If you just like music for the sake of music, it is a great album.

Always following his basic instincts, Chip Davis never looks back but only to the horizon. This time the horizon is "Romantic Melodies", reminiscent of watching loved ones, birds in flight against a beautiful sky, standing before a forest of trees exploring what life is about and what is beyond. In my opinion, some of the most beautiful melodies ever written and performed by the Mannheim. Many cues begin with a light piano, percussion and moving strings---absolutely brilliant compositions.
Perhaps his greatest collection thus far, Mannheim Steamroller contains moments of quiet and almost dream-like cues, with driving rhythms mixed with counterpoints that lend to drifting over a beautiful sunset---seeing life for the very first time. Take for instance the opening track "SERENITY", blending and interwoven arrangements beautifully performed by Davis and the Mannheim gang. Chip sets his standards to the highest level with every composition---his impeccable inner feelings come through, which is the mainstay to all his fans.
Mr. Davis latest endeavor has captured the hearts of people who love good music. Found this album to be a tremendous help in my well being and state of mind. Life is so short on this planet of ours, time moves so fast we miss out on so much. When listening to "THE SIGN OF LOVE", gradually sink into total relaxation going back gently to reality, holding memories of long ago precious. Another cue is "TEARDROPS, RAINDROPS", rain as background mixes, plus the piano and synthesizers recapture the timeless moments of the past---as the listener appreciates the removable of thoughts from everyday events and concern.
As Chip has said..."Romance is in many forms in our lives".

Chip Davis and the Steamroller have put together a most relaxing collection of listening and dance music in the style made famous by Mannheim Steamroller: A mix of artistry, sound, and message that can be used as background for those intimate candle light dinners or even afterwards. This disc is not a sonic spectacular (as is some of their other work); rather it is a mood spectacular.

Beautiful music - all selections are nice to listen to - I use these selections in my massage practice and they are not too sensual - just very easy to listen to and enjoy, plus they are relaxing pieces of music.

Good news and bad news about this album:
First, the bad news-- NONE of it is new. If you're like me, and you own all of Chip Davis' previous albums, there is no point in buying this one. You can compile the tracks yourself and save some money.
The good news is that most of the tracks on this album are pretty decent, and if you are only familiar with Mannheim's Christmas stuff, this could be a good way to introduce yourself to some of their other works (though the 25 Year Celebration CD does a far better job of this.) Appropriately enough, the music here is all fairly slow and, well, romantic. It's good background music for a quiet dinner, so it succeeds in its intentions, I just would have liked to see some new material, rather than a cleverly packaged compilation.
