"There is some interesting music on this CD. I might license some of it for a movie, but this really isn't the type of music you would listen to by itself. It's just too simplistic. In fact, it almost sounds like an hour of someone playing around on an expensive synthesizer. However, it did catch my attention. So, give it a listen. Please note, this is not the "new" flamenco music that Ottmar Liebert is better known for."

"What you might appreciate knowing - & what I didn't know - is that this is really not so much Ottmar Liebert as it is dance-club style REMIXES of his stuff. "All songs R taken from... 'The Hours Between Night + Day.'" Not even much musical variety (3 of the CD's 4 compositions are repeated in edited versions, if you didn't get your fill the first time around). Ya don't get much for yer buck. Comes off sounding very club, not very Ottmar, to those of us who have his earlier releases. Not easy listening, no, nor new agey. Not even very much guitar... Odd, for someone who writes that he "is the instrument, the guitar is the amplifier." (Don't ask me who the player is! Especially on this CD.) I'd say, on Euphoria, those are just raw ingredients for someone else to make a stew of. Fine, if you happen to like the cook... in these cases, the remixes are by Steve Hillage & Aki Nawaz of England, and Steve Be Zet of Germany. For me, although dressed up with all the bells & whistles, it's still fluff music - nice melodies but not very interesting or challenging to the ear more than once. But I guess if you're in a "club" frame of mind, you're not thinking about those kinds of things, are you?"

"I have listened to this CD several times over and everytime I listen to it, it adds a completely new dimension to music. A perfect piece to be enjoyed either alone or in company. If I could, I would allocate more than five stars to it. I strongly urge all New Age music lovers to buy this CD!"
