Best Instrumental Album I've Heard In A Long Time

"Rarely have I heard a CD as evocative of such solemn nobility and warm beauty of both the earth and mind. Put this CD on when you have a chance to lay back and listen to it with no interruptions. I defy you to NOT be transferred to a higher plane! From the beautifully somber and powerful opening of 'Earth Link', through the friendly and welcome melodies of 'Sunset/Moonrise' and the joyful sounds of 'Anahata'...absolutely wonderful. And I hope when I die I hear music as warm and comforting as 'Sound of Light'! I'd never heard of this group before, but they came near to perfection with this album. Their other albums seem to center on different genres - 'Chakradancer' is the one to get if you want their best!"

"Released on CyberOctave, a Higher Octave label, "Chakradancer", Alain Eskinasi dispenses with the didgeridoo featured predominately on their first release and replaces it with crystal bowls played by Derk Mulder. The bowls, along with the "haunting moods, the subtle voices, the repetitive and mesmerizing percussion all are ingredients which culminate in one of the most enchanting instrumental releases in recent memory." Of the eight tracks on "Chakradancer", my favorites are "Earth-Link," "Give-A-Way," "Vishuddha"-with its magical use of whale sounds and Sanskrit vocals, "Sound Of Light," "Crystalline," and the CD bonus track, "A Voice Inside." All tracks are over seven minutes in length with the whole CD running at close to an hour. After listening to "Earth-Link," and "Give-A-Way,"-with their hypnotic beats, the distant, haunting chants and the layers of "synthesized atmospherics," it wasn't hard imagining myself walking the streets of ancient Sumer with Enki in some long forgotten age."

"A calming reassuring CD bringing rest and tranquility to the spirit. Eskinasi and Mulder have created an organic sensual experience using synthesizers and middle eastern instrumentation. This album is based on Chakra music theory. That being sound imaging to energize the spirit. The sensuality lies in the energized tranquility within his music. Imposing a relaxing psychological effect upon the listener."
