Epic and entrancing

"When Silk road came on TV I was In High-School. After seeing the first episode I was already fascinated by the music that complimented the amazing photogaphy flawlessly. I had never before heard of Kitaro, but by the time the series finished I owned volumes 1 and 2 (on vinyl Lp's).
Kitaro's work over the years had ups and downs. The entire Silk Road albums (all 4 of them) are among his best music ever. The theme melody is explored in subtle re-interpretations throughout all the albums. The mood changes with the geographical imagery that it is associated with, and does so in a profound and subtle way. It showcases Kitaro's excellent compositional skills.This music is evocative, diverse and soothing. It has none (or very few) moments of sickly sweet new-age overtones that have plagued many of his later work. Instead it is very well tempered throughut. Silk Road 1 features the wonderful title track of the series. But all four albums are up to the same level of musical excellence, yet each has a unique and very different feel.
After over a decade this is one set of Kitaro albums that I still play a lot. The other one is KI. If you only ever plan to get one Kitaro album, Silk Road 1 is probably THE one to get. It is truly beautiful and timeless music."

"The CD was missing music, like it was a pirated copy, and part of the missing music was the most sought after music from Kitaro. I own an original CD of the Silk Road CD's and wanted an extra copy of the first side, but the missing music was a shock. I had never ever had this experience before with music ordered from Amazon."
