Cosmo Frequency is unique and inspiring. The soundtracks are relaxing and unlike anything I have ever heard. With layers of synthesizers, native flute, funky piano, and even dance beats, Cosmo Frequency brings a whole new level to New Age music. I am very happy with this CD. It is beautifully mastered and mixed, with upbeat harmonies. When I listen to the tracks, I feel uplifted. Each song is equally beautiful, which is quite rare for an album, and I can honestly say I love every piece. It is hard for me to even pick which track is my favorite, but I will touch on a few that really stand out to me. Apollo Skies is exquisite and reminds me of a voyage through space. The Gift could be well suited for an Olympic theme song with its inspiring trumpets. Chillaxin has a mid-tempo rhythm with haunting vocals. The dance beat in Classic Story Light Years Away reminds me of a time warp. I visualize the rich colors of a setting sun when I listen to Horizon. Canyon Chant takes me on a scenic hike through the mountains. World of Light has a dreamy melody and inspirational lyrics. The soothing sound of Winter Solstice would be perfect to listen to while getting a facial or a massage. If you like Vangelis, you will love Cosmo Frequency. I can't wait for their next album.

The debut album by Cosmo Frequency, "Soundtrack to Life," like life itself, is diverse and includes a variety of interesting elements and musical styles. The songs range from relaxed ambient excursions, to upbeat electronic grooves, and some mid-tempo pieces in between. Instrumentation includes synthesizers, Native flute, drums, bass, trumpet, flugelhorn, electric guitars, piano, percussion, background singing, and much more. Paul Martinson and Brent Vincent are the principle members of the group, which also includes lovely ethereal vocals by Lisa Wegener on some of the tracks.

A track called "The Gift," begins with a percolating synthesizer sequence in the style of Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, or Jean Michel Jarre. The Electronic Wind Instrument (EWI) plays a trumpet-like part as orchestral elements and the sound of a solar wind are added to the mix creating a grand cinematic air. One of the things I appreciated most about this song and a number of their compositions is the way they incorporated the analog-style of sequencing heard in many classic electronic music albums and put their own spin on it with the layers and effects they added to it. Brent Vincent's background as a club DJ is clearly heard on "Classic Story (Light Years Away)." After a brief symphonic intro, synth bass and four on the floor drums propel this upbeat tune into the stratosphere as a bubbly sequencer adds to the momentum on this danceable track with classical influences. On a track entitled "Canyon Chant," that we get to hear another side of Cosmo Frequency that is more laid back. Although the sounds of Native flute and tribal drumming bring an earthy ambience, there are still enough electronic elements for this song to fit comfortably into the style of the album.

After more than two decades apart, lifelong Utah natives and childhood friends Paul Martinson and Brent Vincent (the former a new age musician and the latter a dance club DJ) reconnected and found themselves on the same musical wavelength again. After they added Lisa Wegener's vocals to their eclectic mix of keyboard and synthesizer sounds, Cosmo Frequency was born.

Even though this is their debut album, the trio sound like old hands in the studio. The production is very slick and refined, with crisp, clear sound.

The group takes its name from Carl Sagan's landmark television series Cosmos, primarily because of the music composed by electronic artist Vangelis, who is famous for his iconic score to Chariots of Fire. The inspiration of Sagan's vision can be found in the grand, epic scope of the compositions, and the influence of Vangelis heard in the highly polished and crystalline sheen of the synthetic sounds.

Cosmo Frequency and their soundtrack to life are the nexus where humanity and high-tech meet, and from a musical point of view, that's not a bad spot to find yourself in.

The samples don't give a full picture of how good this album is. If you love New Age music with a tighter structure, this is for you. Each song tells a story and will bring in the good vibes.
