A good representaion of Kitaro's early works

"I always like Kitaro's earlier works the best, up to about the mid 80's or so. This is a nice, mellow,melodic, flowing album that was very much the style of Kitaro at the time. This is probably his third best studio album after Ki and Tunhaung. There are several versions of this album, but if you can find the original analog recording, you will be richly rewarded. The newest remixed/remastered version is a bit edgey and slightly bright, which does not help this otherwise relaxing album."
THE definitive Kitaro album

"If you only purchase one Kitaro album, this has to be the one. It is seriously PERFECT. It's gentle flowing melodies will elicit images and inspire you in a way you didn't think possible. This was the album that started my music collection. I remember I couldn't stop listening to it, it was in my tape player for months. Check this one out. If you like new age music, you will surely not be disappointed!"

"Oasis was, at the time, essentially a prolog to what many consider to be Kitaro's masterpiece, Silk Road. In some ways, the music on Oasis is even more representative of Kitaro's early post-Far East Family Band sound than any of his other albums. Kitaro doesn't possess the teutonic heaviness of Schulze, nor does he display the haute monde romanticism of Jarre; rather, it's the zen-like otherworldliness of his early work that makes such albums as Oasis and Astral Trip worthy additions to your personal intergalactic catalog of cosmic music. Kitaro's haunting lyricism (derived perhaps from classical Indian music) pervades many of the tracks on Oasis, and his--at the time unconventional--use of acoustic guitar and tribal percussion is still quite fresh for a music that has become incredibly conventionalized over the past few decades. Also, try the aforementioned Astral Trip and Full Moon Story, both of which are quite experimental and thus quite different than Silk Road and what came after."
