(1 out of 5 stars)
"This CD is David's first album, so it is worth listening if you want to know how he began his musical career. It is not good and the songs just repeats itself for about 2 or 3 times. When I firt listened to the first song, I thought it was good at the begining but later it gets really boring. I mean really boring. I don't think you will like it."
Very early Lanz.

"David Lanz's style had not yet matured when he recorded this. Though some of it reflected the style of his later works (his quiet ones, anyway), a lot of the pieces have a kind of meandering tunelessness to them. Valencia, the first track, is a perfect example: the main theme consists of a major scale going straight down for two octaves. A lot of it is kind of repetitive, too. My favorites are Dream Field and Rosario, which echoes his later work Prelude to the Dance. Heartsounds is also nice, but there's a much better version on Return to the Heart. If you're a Lanz fan, I do recommend this CD just because it's an interesting glimpse into the beginning of his career. Most of it's quiet and mellow, making good background music for relaxing or reading or enjoying the weather. (Unless it's a thunderstorm. Then you want his Skyline Firedance!)"
