(3 out of 5 stars)
"I gave this CD only 3 stars because it contains tracks that, for me at least, are too variable in style. A little variety is fine, but I usually want to hear either "authentic" polynesian music or the more recent, quasi-Hawaiian style, depending on my mood. This CD starts out fine, in the quasi-Hawaiian mode, but then goes through a few tracks that sound like a night-club band (heavy on the piano and electric bass!), then switches to more authentic music, and ends with primitive sounds (music?) from Samoa and the Solomons. If you're looking for the broadest possible range of polynesian music, from primitive to contemporary, on a single CD, this would fit that need. But if you want a CD that fits a particular mood or conjures up images of paradise, you could do a lot better."
