New Age Bliss
K. Glenn | Arizona, USA | 11/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kevin Braheny's masterpiece, "The Way Home," deserves 10 stars if you like new age music. If not, it still deserves the 5 stars given. I've had this album since it was released back in the 80s and I will never get tired of it. The music is spacious, peaceful, and gorgeous. It is ideal for meditation but I also put it on for background music, letting it float in the air, adding a sense of comfort to the atmosphere."

"I have listened to the CD since it's release and find no equal in the space music genre. The music awakens emotions in me that I was previously unaware of and the experience of both pieces is always moving and deeply satisfying. I have recommended it to may friends, one of which is a healer & therapist who has used it to great effect with a number of patients. I highly recommend using a good quality set of headphones for the best experience. I am simply in awe of this creation."
True romantic space music.

""The Way Home" is one of the first space music releases I ever purchased. I bought it (on cassette) as an "experiment," i.e. I had never heard it or anything else by Kevin Braheny. When I played it the first time, I knew that I had found something that transcended description by ordinary standards. Here was music that went deep to my core and touched something buried in my soul. the sheer beauty of Kevin's playing (especially his trademark EWI-electronic woodwind) nearly brought tears to my eyes. Listening to it now, about eight years after I first heard it, is still a revelation. This is true romantic space music. If you are unmoved by this recording, then you are a cynic of immense proportions. The flowing synth washes, the EWI gliding effortlessly along, the plucked-string synths-all combine in the two songs on this release("The Way Home" and "Perelandra") to produce a musical experience sublime and exquisite. warmer than the warmest Serrie, more melodic than Roach at his most accessible, more deeply textured than all but the best space music releases of this decade, "The Way Home" truly earns the designation "classic." The title trackis the warmer and gentler of the two peices, although those comments are deceiving. This release is one of my favorite "late night" recordings, idealfor drifting off to sleep or relaxing very late in the evening. The music of the title cut gently ebbs and flows, with slow patient synth washes counterpointed by Kevin's achingly beautiful EWI playing. "Perelandra" is the "spacier" of the two songs, much more electronic in nature than "The Way Home." Still, the warm, friendly, approachable nature of the recording is maintained. Less "organic," than the previous piece, "Perelandra" has a hint of the celestial to it, in all the best meanings of the word. If you enjoy space music that envelops you in warmth and invites peace and calm, as opposed to the darker elements of deep space, you should get this CD. After all these years, it still weaves a magic spell over me. Maybe the same will be true for you. Review by Bill Binkelman copyright 1998 Wind and Wire"
