Love this and every single 2002 CD. Such deep, full, rich music that is ever so relaxing. Great for bible study time and prayer time.
A musical tapestry of elegence

"I stumbled across this CD quite by accident in a 'Natural Wonders' store several years ago. I was intrigued by the cover art as well as the brief desrtiption of the music as "hauntingly beautiful" and bought it.
That chance encounter-which could have happened later as the genre of this music appeals to me, turned into one of those rare and great musical treasure discoveries.
Unlike some music which has to be heard repeatedy for the listener to attain common ground with the artist(s), 'Chrysalis' draws one majically from the very first playing into a mystical experience that transcends the earthly realm to a level of serenety, joy, and at times melancholy that is at its very least beautiful, and at its best a rare masterpiece.
Like all great albums, the whole is a theme of individual tracks that weave consistently from one to the next, and there are no weak songs. At the end, you wonder where the time went and are wanting for the experience to never end.
Interestingly, it was a couple of years before I searched out their other works, and found them to be equally worthy.
Following the timeline of 2002's works is like watching something very mystical, rare, and beautiful come of age. Each album has a coherent theme,(this one the metaphor of metamorphasis of caterpillar to butterfly-say that 3 times!) and usually a myth or ancient legend behind it as inspiration-which reveals that there is an intellectual depth behind the music that on the surface is quite pleasing to the unsophisticated ear, but at the same time- for the disciplined and discerning listener each time listening reveals deeper layers of elegance and beauty that is obviously the product of gift, discipline, and mostly a lot of hard work.
All great creators-whether musical, artistic, or literary- are inspired by the majestic, profound, and sometimes deeply sad mysteries of this journey we call life, and as each uses their chosen medium to fulfill their endless need to create-whether as a medium to convey their deepest feelings to others, or simply for the release of the life energy within, they leave great works that awe and inspire others long after their time on earth is done. 2002 is worthy of that billing. I highly reccomend their work."

"I first heard a song from this album on a cable TV audio channel. It was my introduction to 2002. I quickly wrote down the information about the song, which was glorious, and later found it at Amazon. I can say wholeheartedly that this album is one of my favorites. I was really lucky to hear it on that TV channel. It opened my eyes to the world of 2002. Now I own Land of Forever, This Moment Now, River of Stars, Chrysalis, and Across an Ocean of Dreams. Do yourself a favor, lovers of New Age music, get all of the 2002 you can, starting with this album."
