Editorial Reviews

Global superstar Yanni s new album, Sensuous Chill, is a lush sonic experience featuring 10 brand new tracks. The album once again sees the visionary musician exploring new realms of sound and creativity inspired by his seeming infinite world travels. Tracks like the ecstatically rhythmic "Desert Soul" and the bhangra-spiced "Dance For Me" are among the most physically stimulating of the Grammy Award®-nominated composer s remarkable canon, offering a new sonic perspective on his adventures and experiences amidst myriad aspects of global culture.

Yanni, accompanied by a fifteen-member international orchestra, will celebrate Sensuous Chill with a major U.S. tour starting in early February. The tour will see Yanni performing classic compositions from throughout his career alongside music from the new album, favorites and special surprises.

Coming in March, PBS will air a new Yanni special, The Dream Concert, filmed at his recent history making concerts at the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.

Yanni is truly a global artist - a multiple Grammy Award®-nominated composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and performer whose extraordinary body of work has both pioneered contemporary instrumental music and re-imagined the live concert-going experience. Since making his solo debut with 1984s Optimystique, Yanni has seen no less than fifteen albums reach #1 on the Billboard s Top New Age Album Chart, more than any other artist ever, and has amassed over 35 platinum and gold records throughout his career.

Yanni has had a long music career starting back in the 80’s. Try as you may to put his style of music in a “box” it is something not easily done. From his electronic keyboard compositions of his early work, his piano solo album “In My Time”, the grand concerts with full orchestra of Acropolis and Tribute, his diverse and cultural sounding “Ethnicity”, the calm of “If I Could Tell You”, to Yanni Voices and on and on..Yanni has been one to push the envelope and take the chance of trying something new. His new album “Sensuous Chill” is another (somewhat) change in direction. It’s a mixed bag of beautiful songs and keyboard melodies...to compositions with a modern driving (kind of seducing) techno beat. I have my favorites: “Thirst for Life”, “Seeing You Around”, “A Little Too Late”, the exotic “Dance for Me”, “Drive” and “Rapture” (which reminds me of the music and mood of the TV show Miami Vice) I think the only draw back is the addition of some previously released tracks from other albums. The album as a whole, I think, achieves what Yanni said he intended…a sit back and chill, be in the moment kind of feel. Let it flow…and chill out ☺

I've been a fan of yanni for over 25 years, attended 5 of his concerts, know how to play nearly every one of his songs on the piano by heart as a professional musician. I am a lover of Yanni's music but this album is a negative departure from his previous albums. Heavy electronics, repeating simple piano phrases, predictable harmonies, recycled songs from past albums. I was ecstatic when this album arrived in the mail but my excitement quickly faded after the third track. I didn't even have to complete most of the CD because I've heard over half of it before. I'm not asking for Live at the Acropolis or Tribute, but I am asking for fine musicianship that was seen in the albums I had just mentioned, In My Time, Dare to Dream, and If I Could Tell You. I want to hear YANNI on the keyboards and piano. Where is the 7/8 meter or 5/8 meter. Creativeness heard in songs like Keys to Imagination, Nostalgia, Felitsa are no where to be found. I'm disappointed... :(

A departure from his normal work. Normally I think it's great for artists to try to grow beyond their traditional sounds. But this one just doesn't do it for me. Too much electronica, processed sounds, drum machines and recycled songs/themes from past albums. As a long-time fan who has most of his albums, I was predisposed to liking this album before hearing it. And while there are occasional songs that I enjoy, I am not into the overall style that he is exploring here. The busyness of it all and the overabundance of sampled effects and electronics leave it sounding sterile, artificial and shallow instead of having the depth and warmth that is usually present in his recordings. I commend him for trying something new, but I hope this does not represent a permanent new direction for him. If so, I'll wish him well and just continue to enjoy his past recordings.

We're all thinking it. "Sensuous Chill" for an album name is somewhere between plain silly and outright atrocious. But even more unfortunately, if we're going to be titling albums with literal on-the-nose names, "Creative Fatigue" would be a more accurate one.

I was excited for this album, but ultimately very disappointed by the sheer amount of mediocre tracks recycled from previous recent albums Voices/Voces/Truth of Touch (7 total: "1001," "The Keeper", "Whispers in the Dark", "Orchid", "Our Days", "Can't Wait","I'm So"). These compositions and songs were not very remarkable to start off with, so it's annoying to see them continuously popping up in new releases. "Whispers in the Dark" is an exception as it's a very nice listen, but even then it's an already released track (from the "Voices" album) that is a remake of an earlier composition from an era when Yanni actually put effort into composing ("In My Time" album). Think about how many degrees of lazy that is.

Of the actual new releases, three are cheesy, melodramatic Chloe-centric songs. I will not be listening to the thoroughly uninteresting "A Little Too Late" or "Test of Time," the second of which doesn't even merit a release considering how similar it is to the much better "Kill Me With Your Love," which even then I still don't listen to. "Seeing You Around" is an interesting sound for Yanni to try, so I appreciate the attempt, but if I'm in the mood for blues, I'd go listen to real blues instead of a sterilized computer-sample-heavy version.

I almost didn't buy this album after reading other peoples reviews but decided to try it since I like Yanni's music so much. After listening to it, I wonder why other people don't like it. He has gone back to his original style and I like it very much.

Unlike most of the reviewers here; my friends and I just recently "discovered" Yanni. We're young (late-20s and early-30s) and the most I remember about Yanni from his "golden years" described by other reviewers is that my babysitter listened to Yanni tapes when I smelled funny stuff downstairs after I was supposed to be in bed. Fast forward 20 years: we heard Live at the Acropolis and it blew our minds. Crank it up on a pair of bose headphones and you're in a different world. We even bought tickets to a concert it was so damn good. So, take my review as something of a fresh look:

This album is totally different; I love full orchestra Yanni and I sincerely hope that I get to see it in concert. But as much as Sensuous Chill may be a re-hash of old Yanni compositions and (over)produced, I played this album for a group of friends who have absolutely no idea who Yanni is... and they LOVED it. What's more, they loved it for all the loops, drums, electronica, tribal influences and "non-Yanni-ness" that others here hated. Hell, for the most part I loved it. This music soothes the soul.

I don't think Yanni is selling-out. Electronic music isn't a passing fad and I don't think Yanni "did it for the money," he's getting older and has a smart producer that helped bring him into 2016. I'll put it this way: Live at the Acropolis is never going to make it on a 21-year-olds' playlist; but Sensuous Chill could find its way into DJ booths across the country and bring Yanni to a whole new generation of listeners who truly like this kind of music -- leading them to eventually discover the classical influences that created it.
