David has done some better work, some worse. If you're a fan, it's worthy liostening to, but will not rank high on my most-played lists

"If you haven't been sure about the early Arkenstone albums, this compilation has so much good stuff it'll sell you on them (it did me). It's also handy when you can only play one CD and want a lot of Arkenstone (17 cuts) with some stuff out of the first three smallish albums."
A worthy compilation

"Clocking in at 74 minutes, this compilation--1993's Chronicles--draws from David Arkenstone's first five full-length albums, except for the piece "The North Wind," which comes from a multi-artist compilation by the name of A Childhood Remembered. Including "The North Wind," this collection displays 17 tracks that are not in chronological order. Valley in the Clouds (1987) is represented by "Ancient Legend," "Stepping Stars," and "Valley in the Clouds." Island (1989) is represented by "Ballet," "Passage," "Desert Ride," and "Hindu Holiday." Citizen of Time (1990) is represented by "Voices of the Anasazi" and "Out of the Forest and into the Trees." In the Wake of the Wind (1991) is represented by "Borderlands," "The Rug Merchant," "Firedance," "Papillon (On the Wings of the Butterfly)," and "The Southern Cross." The Spirit of Olympia (1992) is represented by "From the Forge to the Field" and "Glory." My favorite compositions are "Borderlands," "The Rug Merchant," "Papillon (On the Wings of the Butterfly)," and "The Southern Cross." The expansive "Borderlands" exhibits a majestic keyboard line. The well-crafted, plaintive "The Rug Merchant" provides a beautiful, touching beginning. The imaginative "Papillon (On the Wings of the Butterfly)" furnishes a stately, enchanting keyboard melody. "The Southern Cross" is nicely tailored and pretty. I am impressed with the CD booklet, with its informative history of Arkenstone and his albums. In addition, the music's sound quality is pleasing. Actually, I rate this album 3.5 stars. Arkenstone is a talented artist, and this compilation is recommendable."
