Exotic and uncliched
mike reider | san diego, CA | 11/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"yes, im using that word 'exotic', because this music is quiet literaly, exotic. Tracks like 'Essarai' drown out the empty noises at work and fill my head with visions of swaying green palm trees, milky clouds touching the amber red horizon that meets the island shores filled with white sand and windswept cliffs. Yes, I'm babbling, but I know im not the only one who feels the surreal beauty of this music.

Expertly crafted to be an unboring and sophisticated chillout music. Perfect for laying out in a hammock, lovemaking or staring at at distant sunsets."
Amazing, nigh perfect album. Only one thing keeps it from be
Chris Rutledge | The Sausage Bushes | 05/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"...Track 9, The Call. For me, it just doesn't jive with all the other songs, and keeps it from being a CD grail... a "fire and forget" CD. A CD that you can really just toss in and not have to worry about that one or two tracks that you always want to skip past to get to the good ones. I truly, truly wish it would have just been removed.

Apart from that, you have 9 smooth, downtempo, laid back tracks. Production values are high. Every other track are ones I can listen to over and over again. It makes you feel like you're on a secluded beach in the carribean or Bora Bora in a beachhouse on the back deck, looking out on the water as the sun sets. The lush beats, the smooth sounds, everything works together. A polished album.

Just perfect. In spite of track 9, it's perfect. I have 80+ CDs, but there's always a spot in my player for it. Buy it. Get a copy for your friends. I have. It's just that good."
Absolutely Brilliant

"Seldom do you see a recording get a full 5 stars, but this one is definitely deserving of it's current overall rating. My only complaint about Cantoma is that they only have the one CD!! If they had a dozen more titles, I'd buy them all. I have played this CD no less than 20 times, and I never tire of it. It's on the "top shelf" of my cd rack. Every track is as good as , or better than the one before it. If you like substance to your music, this is the cd! Chill/ambient mixed with a latin beat. Fabulous. I hope there is a follow up CD."
