Synopsis

Amazon.com
After a two-year break from recording, Swiss harpist Andreas Vollenweider returned with Eolian Minstrel, which marks a radical reworking of his music. The most obvious departure is the composer's collaboration with lyricists/vocalists Eliza Gilkyson (on most tracks) and Carly Simon (on one). In keeping with this conversion to the song form, Vollenweider has added a new perkiness to his music, so it sounds less like Yanni and more like Kenny G. --Geoffrey Himes

Vocals take Over!

(3 out of 5 stars)

"The female vocals on this album are mood-destroying, making
it sound less "ethereal" and more pop-schlock, which is not
what I personally want to hear on an AV album. The main singer
is not balanced to Andreas' style so it comes off as overbearing
to my ears. Sorry , I'll pass on this one."
