CD Reviews

Wonderful harmonies, mello & soothing
Catvision | Fort Collins, CO United States | 01/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great blend of Nakai's Native American melodies on flute and Eaton on guitar and several string instruments he designed and built. The result is a melodius interplay of harmonies and rhythms in a variety of instrumental sounds and some chants. Very calming, soothing -- great for relaxation or meditation."
THE ESSENCE OF DREAMS
Unlucky Frank | Lalaland, CA United States | 04/28/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"By far, Nakai's best recording. This is the most haunting and beautiful CD I own. Wonderful for meditation, painting, relaxing, or drifting off to sleep. What dreams this man conjures. This far surpasses anything in the often incoherent genre of New Age Music and should not be classified as such. Nakai is in a realm all his own.On the rare occasion this CD leaves the player beside my bed, it's usually in the player in my painting studio.BUY IT NOW!..."
Stirring and Thought Provoking
Trent M. Nicholson | Yucca Valley, CA USA | 02/17/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nakai produces a romantic, healing, while vaguely haunting music that gently transports you back to a time when music was more than just entertainment. Nakai emulates the traditional music of his Navajo-Ute in a way that is both touching and mystic. Be prepared to be taken on a journey where you will be introduced to the feelings an impressions that Nakai himself experiences. He will show you through his music what the world around his means to him, and he will instill that awe of life in you.Nakai doesn't fall into the trap of giving the musical tourist exactly what he expects. There is no chanting or jingling bells, no corny sound effects or war cries. Instead he simply taps into that inner peace that we all look for. Perhaps that's the reason so many people have come to appreciate his music. The universal understanding of, and need for, peace and insight."
