My first and still my favorite
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 07/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1985, I walked into a bookstore in Lewiston, Maine, and thought I was hearing music from the heavenly spheres. They were playing "Ki", and I became a Kitaro fan from that day on.
Of all my many Kitaro CDs, "Ki" is still my favorite...the one I have 2 copies of, as it's one of the 8 CDs I keep in the car.I'm one of those that tend to prefer the "pre-U.S.A." Kitaro. Of his recordings, and sadly many are out of print at this time, "Oasis" (track # 4 on "Ki" is same glorious track # 10 theme of the "Oasis" CD), "Asia", "Full Moon Story", and "Silk Road Vol. 1" fill out the top 5 choices for me, and "Ki" of all of them succeeds the best in being a continuous flow of exquisite, soul-filling melody.The enclosed leaflet says that on this recording Kitaro plays Korg, Roland, Yamaha, Prophet and Mini Moog synthesizers, acoustic guitar, slide guitar, mellotron, drums, percussion, tabla, and Irish harp. The remastered sound is good, and total time 44'12.
Kitaro was a's thought that he was the first to create "New Age" as a musical category. He has had many imitators, but few equals. If you want one of his finest CDs, "Ki" is one to consider buying."
Music for humankind and gods alike...

"I have extremely few "favorites" of anything... but, *Kitaro *Ki is my undisputed favorite musical entity... no other can arouse the humanity and spirituality, I experience from this musical "gift". It is sad that many, many more people never chance across such fulfilling "human exchange"..."
A Glorious Album

"This is a wonderfull album, made during Kitaro's peak. Melodic and flowing, this album is more like a single unit, than a collection of songs. I've been listening to Kitaro since the seventies, and this is one of his last really great studio albums. Unfortunately, this is out of print. I highly recomend this to any Kitaro fan. Hunt down a used copy if you can, especially the original Japanese version."
