CD Reviews

THIS IS THE ONLY MASSAGE MUSIC I USE!
05/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been a massage therapist for 3 years and I have tried other music, but I keep going back to this. My clients have told me that when they can't sleep they will think of my music and be able to begin the relaxing process. Silk Roads is my favorite song, and I say that almost every time (if I don't, my clients will remind me). That song touches my soul like no other!"
The Original Mellow Man is back!

"A "Kitaro field" is when you are hit with music that is intensely tranquil, and beautiful. You just slow right down, and relax. This is Kitaro doing what he does best: beautiful, slow music. "Koi" is particularaly nice. "Dance of Sarasvati" has a kind of Carribean sound to it, and it moves for a Kitaro piece. "Lady of Dreams" ushers Kitaro into the world of rock. Jon Anderson's vocals blend seamlessly with Kitaro's instrumentation. The Soong Sisters soundtrack is Kitaro's first soundtrack. I would really like to see the movie now. You can really hear a movie in this music. The style is very reminiscent of James Horner's style, particularly "Braveheart" and "Dances with Wolves." Another good example of Kitaro flexing his abilities as a musician."
Not the best in my opinion.

"I have 17 Kitaro CD's. When a "Best Of" comes out, you expect the best. Except for a few these are not. I could think of many better selections in a "Best Of". If not for the bonus cd, then my money would have been wasted. BTW the Soong Sisters is a beautifull cd in it's own right."
