CD Reviews

Like Early Morning Bells and Afternoon Jacuzzi All At Once

(5 out of 5 stars)

"At my birthday party a couple years ago, everyone seemed to have the same idea of what to get me - soft, New Age albums. I'm pretty sure they were picking them out at random, because none of my friends enjoy New Age music the same way I do. But I appreciated it and thanked them and I took turns putting my new albums in the stereo as the party went on. Well .... this one was the winner of the group. Everyone agreed. As soon as this album came on, everyone said, "Oh, who got you this one? This one's beautiful." And I had to agree!This album is almost entirely instrumental - though some very pretty vocals show up sporatically. The album sounds like the colors "white" or "silver" - very clean, crisp music like early morning bells. But at the same time there's nothing "thin" about it. It has a soothing soulfulness that keeps it rich and spiritually rewarding, even through its bright purity. Some of the harp pieces are so soothing and honest, I can't think of any music that would be more helpful for comforting you at the end of a stressful day. I recommend this clean, lush album to anyone who needs something pretty just to help carry them away every now and then. And of course, I recommend it if you have a New Age or Celtic music lover for a friend like me, and you need to buy a gift. If you're picking one out at random, pick this one. "
Rich, romantic compositions for harp and voice
Brianna Neal | USA | 11/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The tone of this CD is warm and inviting, like a glowing hearth and good, home cooking, but with the hint and haunt of a chilly evening just outside the window. As a composer and arranger, Kim Robertson just keeps getting better! Her compositions have sweep and presence and, as always, the authenticity of true heart. Here, her virtuosic harp playing and ethereal voice are backed by a whole chamber ensemble of strings, English horn, oboe, French horn, clarinet, accordion, guitar and percussion. Robertson's next release, "The Spiral Gate", continues her intriguing evolution as an artist. If you enjoy Robertson's work, you might also like that of harpist and composer Thomas Loefke, in releases such as "Norland Wind", "Atlantic Driftwood", and "December Journey"."
