The Best of the Best!!! | Midlothian, Texas | 12/02/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To those who follow "New age" music, Andreas Vollenweider is simply the best of the genre. And this album is the best of Mr. Vollenweider's catalogue (followed closely by Dancing With the Lion and Caverna Magica). I first heard this album in 1987, and was bowled over. At the time, I was interested in new age music, but it seemed that the albums I heard were either environmental noises backed by synthesizers, or cheesy elevator muzak ala John Tesh. They had no musical substance whatsoever. Then I heard Down to the Moon at a friend's house. What a magical experience! By the time Moon Dance, the second selection, was playing, I knew that I was listening to music that was different than anything I had ever heard before. Subtle complexities interwoven between magical melodies. I rushed out and bought it, and in the eleven years since, I have not heard anything better. If you're looking for ambient music played by a masterful musician, this is the CD to get. I would also look into his other albums (the only one which wasn't up to Andreas' usually high standards was Book of Roses). BTW, I got to meet Andreas last October when he played a concert at Caravan of Dreams in Ft. Worth. It was amazing to hear him recreate these incredible sounds live. He met with his fans and signed autographs after the show, and I found him to be a very generous and humble human being, besides being such a masterful musician."
As good as it gets!

"How I love this album! This was my very first choice for Vollenweider and I was simply mersmerised by its "beauty". Who can say about aesthetics without any comment for the ninth track "The secret, The Candle, And Love". This Grammy awarded CD is the best to date yet. I cannot see any better one still. Hmm... "Dancing with the lion" could be competitive. Never miss this masterpiece!!"
