CD Reviews

Superb blend of ancient harmonics & new-age techniques
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Reyes, with assistance from Steve Roach, has turned out the best CD in my collection. From the haunting chants of shaman-priests to the hypnotic echoes of sacred caves, he has created an atmosphere that takes you back in time to when the Maya ruled the new world. This is his best work, in my view, but his work with Steve Roach and Suso Sais in Suspended Memories is almost as great."
Surreal World of No Return

"Once you enter the surreal, shaman-spirit filled world of Jorge Reyes, there's no return to the mundane and ordinary so called "new age music". Of course, Jorge would be deeply insulted if you called his creations new age. It's ethnic ambiance with a mixture of ponderous and sometimes sinister sounding electronic manipulations. This album is a fine gem that introduces those spiritually inquisitive to his a sense, it is more or less a complilation of his other numerous works.. Enjoy!"
A great collaboration

"The Mexican Jorge Reyes, having started with a little-recorded Mexican rock band, decided to forge a solo career based on pre-Columbian music, enhanced (occasionally) with studio technology. On this album, he enlists the help of Steve Roach who, once again, proves that whether solo or in collaboration, he is one of the best synthesists in the world.Roach's keyboard electronics and Reyes' multiple native instruments and melodies work so well together that it is a real pleasure to listen to this album. The two also collaborated, along with Suso Saiz, on two albums as a group entitled Suspended Memories, and then again, much more recently, on the album Vine, Bark, Spore.This is a beautiful, haunting set of pieces that should be in anyone's CD library of ethno-ambient music."
