Ethereal and Captivating
Enigma | 04/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is rare to find myself captivated by a CD...I am a woman not easily impressed. When it does happen, when the music magically transports me to another plane, the experience is one of pure joy. Such was my reaction to The Music of Olympic National Park. This is one of those CD's that captures your full find yourself closing your eyes as you are cocooned within the music. My favorite tracks are Eagle Flight, Shi Beach Romance, Toleak Point and Sacred Land. Eagle Flight whisks you away to the heavens, to soar high above the clouds...I love the sound of the screaming eagle that is woven throughout this piece. Shi Beach Romance whispers of sand dunes, gulls and the gentle lapping of waves against bare feet. Toleak Point took me atop the hill overlooking the water, where I stood in breathless awe of the ethereal beauty of God's creation....this is definitely my favorite track. Sacred Land conjures up images of ancient warriors, dancing their primitive dance beneath the moon-kissed forest. Impressive, yes....and so much more."
Atmospheric and Synaesthetic

"I first heard "Shi Beach Romance" on a satellite moodscapes music station at work, and at the time, I only thought 'what a beautiful song.' The next day, during the downtime at the store, the song came on again, and I took the moment to really listen to it. The sounds of seagulls filled the room as Mars' guitar melodies conveyed a theme of quiet, unhurried love. Other atmospheric sounds soon joined the movement; waves, cicadas, the wind rustling through the palm trees. It was at about that point that I knew I had to buy a copy of this CD, for I had forgotten where I was momentarily.Since then, I've listened to this wonderful CD everyday after work to unwind, and it certainly does the trick. If you close your eyes and imagine as "Shi Beach Romance" plays, you can actually feel the misty breeze if you're perceptive enough.The CD opens with "Gods of Olympus" featuring harmonic chants over various sounds of wildlife and a synthesized bassline, then delivers you into the rest of the forest of Olympic National Park, and to me at least, it really did feel like a nature trail hike as I listened to each song.For nature lovers and meditation aficionados this CD is an easy five stars in my opinion."
Mystical and Surreal

"I live in Seattle and I get out to the Olympic Peninsula quite a bit. Before every trip I pop this CD in my car or laptop computer to get my mind away from reality. You close your eyes, here the music and suddenly the smell of a temperate rainforest fills the room. Or you smell the salt air of the wilderness coast with seagulls in the background. This CD is magnificently done. It stands only 2nd to actually visiting this beautiful national park yourself. This park sits on the extreme NW point of the contigous United States. Your best bet it to drive there from Seattle or Portland, Oregon while listening to this CD in your car. You'll soon forget all the nagging problems back at the office and be transformed into a new person as well as clean your soul with the fine music that Mars Lasar has created. Well Done Mr Lasar - well done!"
