Jonn Serrie challenges himself

"There are some gorgeous tracks on this release, but his experimental tracks took me some time to appreciate. This is where Jonn took about a 45 degree turn in his musical style. "Winter's Chapel" is not only my favorite piece on this c.d., but is probably in the top three of my favorites songs of any ambient piece from any artist. It is a beautifully haunting piece with a slow, off beat rhythm and a subtly tricky melody, if you listen closely. The cover of the c.d. is beautiful."
Earth bound flight

"Unlike Jonn's totally SPACE releases, "Tingri" seems to have been the vehicle that he experimented with while refining his craft. Although the CD never really gets into space, it does contain more enjoyable tracks than flops. "Midsummer Century" is very similar (only more spacey) and makes a nice pair for collectors."
An underrated CD

"Jonn Serrie is best known for his space music and justifiably so as he is the best in the genre. This was originally, I believe, his third release back in 1990. While this is not the typical space music of his first two releases, And the Stars Go With You and Flightpath, his later two Planetary Chronicles releases, and the more recent Stargazers Journey, I believe it's his best work simply because it is diverse. Some Serrie "purists" may take issue with some of the tracks here as being a little on the commercial side, but the true fact is there is a greater range of music here than on any of the other Serrie CD's I have heard and all are done extremely well for their style. Serrie later did some romantic releases and the track here "Where Lovers Walk" may have been the springboard for those. Whether it was or not, it is a beautiful, well designed and crafted, and innovative composition. There are a couple of uptempo tracks here, including the title track, but the longer tracks like Tingri Maiden and Annie By the Sea come close to fitting the style of his space music. This is an excellent CD, and as I stated, I think underrated. While it does change tempo from time to time, it is a solid listening experience from beginning to end."
