Classic recording by this New Age artist -- it's a keeper (I bought an extra copy just to share!)
Early Oystein Sevag Work
D. Stephen Haynes | San Francisco, CA United States | 03/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is the only Oystein Sevag album that I wouldn't suggest to first-time Oystein listeners/purchasers. I am a fan of Oystein's work; however, this album showcases Oystein's early sound. A good bit of it reminds me of Yanni, and I get the sense that Oystein wasn't quite sure of his direction on this album. Once Link came about, it's apparent that his sense of direction was more established.
Don't get me wrong, this is definitely an Oystein Sevag album. You can hear elements that are used later in Link, Global House, Bridge, and even Caravan. I would recommend this album for fans of Oystein, for people that want to hear his earlier work, or for people that are already familiar with his more recent work."
A World of Pleasant Surprises

"I bought this cassette in 1991, because I heard Gaia on the radio. It's still one of my favorite songs.
Something I really like about this album is that it is really tough to predict what sound you will hear, unless you listen to the same album endlessly. There are some extremely fast rhythms, and there are some sections when you just simply feel the drawn out emotions without realizing it until after the fact. There are also some sounds that you don't hear many other musicians play; it seems to borrow elements from the Middle East and blend them with traditional jazz.
When I play this for most people, they seem to really like it. The only negative feedback I ever received was a friend of mine who, at the time, was really into standard radio easy listening music (like what you hear on "Smooth Jazz" radio stations across the country today). There aren't very many objectionable sounds. Of course, if you insist on listening to music with words, you WILL be sorely disappointed."
