CD Reviews

Rhythm of the Ocean
buddnj | Piscataway, NJ United States | 10/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having lived in Hawaii 20 years, I can still remember where I was when I first heard Heiau on the radio there several years ago. While the entire album is excellent, the pleasant mix of the modern, youthful island sounds of voice and music, especially with some traditional instruments and a few breaks to ancient chant, is just outstanding. I carry Heiau with me in my portable CD collection, and everyone who hears it for the first time always asks about it. I wish a sample were available here, as I have no doubt about your buying the CD after hearing it. Also, the lyrics to all the songs is in the box, making it more enjoyable."
Pretty goood, a mix of selections

"I think the CD was good, not just because it had traditional hawaiian music, but it also had music that was a mix of modern pop with hawaiian themes and sounds"
Hawaiian Music at its best...

"I cannot reinforce enough how good this CD truly is. The music quality is at the top of its game, and it reflects the island soul. I love how HSB mixes traditional music and modern tones together, how they include history in their music as well. I honestly cannot say which song I love the most... E Holo Kai, Heiau, or After the Storm. 'Heiau' was the song that struck me first... it's just a very powerful song. 'E Holo Kai' is another amazing song... about the journey to Hawaii, probably my all time favorite Hawaiian song. 'After the Storm' is a very touching tribute to the island of Kauai after Hurricane Iniki passed on 09/11/1992. If you love Hawaiian Music, and you want to hear the music at it's finest, with a touch of modern style put in... Hawaiian Style Band's "Rhythm of the Ocean" is for you."
