5-0 out of 5 stars More effective than a tranquilizer dart
Has a song ever stopped you in your tracks?
5-0 out of 5 stars Love it! Love it! Love it!
The vocals do it for me. The first time I heard " In the waiting line", I knew immediately I liked them. It took me two years to figure out who they were.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic !
Yeah, this is a pretty mellow album, but it has a presence. Very clever song-writing, correct vocal appointments. In a strange way, it sort of reminds me of Freakpower, with a little more lessness ! If you like music, buy this ! All tastes should be satisfied here. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Naturopathic Tool
I've used this particular cd in my home and in my work as a doctor of naturopathy, and the results have always been good.I've seen people and animals calm down almost instantly, and visibly become more relaxed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Another great one for Reiki!
Another CD that my Reiki clients adore whenever I use it for them!

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent CD to add to your relaxation collection
Whether you are new to this type of music and art or a firm believer of the inner workings of the relationship between the mind and the body and the spirit, this CD is a must.The CD is a great complement to Halpern's "Chakra Suite".

4-0 out of 5 stars It pays to have a roommate with good taste in music
"Play" was my first introduction to Moby. I remember when I lived in Milwaukee in 1999, I had lived with three other people. One of my roommates had bought the original version of "Play" (which the version of the hit "South Side" did not have Gwen Stefani on vocals). My roommate would have "Play" on his stereo non-stop. It did not take me very long to fall in love with the album. I eventually acquired my own copy of "Play". Personally I think this is Moby's best album I have heard. After picking up few more of his cds, I noticed that "Play" picked up where "Everything is Wrong" left off with the gospel-infused techno sound. The majority of "Play" is good but there were a couple of misses. I hate saying this but Gwen Stefani has an annoying voice. I find her voice quite shrill. She totally ruins "South Side". I much prefer the original version which did not include her on the track. I was not really too keen on "Find My Baby" or "Bodyrock". Personally I absolutely loved the gospel infused "Why Does My Heart Feel so Bad?". It is a gorgeous ballad. Techno music rarely sounds emotional but in this particular case, the heartache in the gospel sample shines through. As overplayed as "Porcelain" was on various soundtracks and chill out compilations, I still love the beautiful melodies. The techno tracks are easily the best tracks on the cd while the more guitar orientated tracks were not as good. Nevertheless, I still consider "Play" a classic album in the electronic genre.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
"Play" is an excellent piece of work and a turning point for Moby as it introduces us to his ambient side.Certainly one of the best electronica albums in recent memory. The CD begins with a bang but the 2nd half flows to a mellow chillout state of mind.... Lately, there has been a great crop of electronic ambient releases, among them: Amethystium, Blank & Jones and Digital Moodz --all are highly recommended

5-0 out of 5 stars Impulse Purchase - Nice Surprise for a non-Moby fan
I purchased this CD a couple of years ago on a whim, after having read the reviews and being bombarded with his name during some election periods.While I don't agree with his political stance and methodologies, I don't let that affect my likes/dislikes in music.

Editorial Review

Ulrich Schnauss is a German electronic artist who is influenced by forebears like Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk--but unlike retro-space artists, he doesn't sound like he just emerged from their dusty studios after being marooned there for 30 years. Instead, his synthesizers bristle with contemporary electro-rhythms, a bit of New Wave romanticism, and melodies you want to last forever. Schnauss has perfected a balance between quiet yearning and joyful heroism in his music, with sweeping major-chord progressions that are triumphal without being ostentatious, expansive without being pompous. For someone who is so rhythm-centered with crackling snares and electro-glitches, it's ultimately the melodies that draw you in, turned on glistening, bell-like timbres and space-organ sustains.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT MUSIC!!!
I stumbled onto this artist by accident when downloading music.This album is amazing.I listen to this at work and it is relaxing and fluid. (I work in accounting and like music that is not distracting) I can't wait for Ulrich more to be available.Definately a great purchase!

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the greatest of all time
i first found this album whilst sifting through the likes of Boards Of Canada, Leggo Beast, Bonobo and the like, but never before have I come across an album that is so absorbing,a nd so refreshing to listen to.
5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect album for a lazy day off!
This is ambient for grown ups! Like the soundtrack to a Michael Mann movie without the violence, sort of....The perfect album for one of those days off that you occasionally get, but that you haven't really planned (yes, I know, they are rare, but they do exist) Just ripp this straight into your iPod and don't do anything useful for about 85 minutes! If you like this, you should check out www.ulrich-schnauss.com forhis free MP3s of demos/early versions! His album "A strangely isolated place" is just as good. If ambient with an urban rhythmic twist is your cup of tea, I also recommend the OSA to the movie "Code 46" by Free Association, it's quite magical! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Optimum Health
For years I have been falling into a blissful restful sleep while listening to Steven Halpern's beautiful musical artistry. The Chakra Suite can also be used for healing, balancing and meditation. What I have also noticed is that the day after I fall asleep to this music, I wake up refreshed and have a much better mood all day long.
4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Music
Understandable that Mr. Halpern is considered a Master of Sound.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great artist, great relaxation, great value...
Some chakra-balancing music can be at first challenging to listen to. Such works, like Jonathan Goldman's Chakra Chants, earn their appreciation by acquired understanding of the music's intention. With this work by Steven Halpern, even if you can't distinguish a chakra from a hole in the ground, it won't matter. This CD will make you feel SO relaxed, if nothing else! I would imagine that small children would like it, too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Eno and Byrne score a hit
I first bought this album on a whim since I'm a big eno fan, but not so much of David Byrne. This album was a quite nice surprise, with its beat driven rhythms and guitar of David Byrne, and pulsing ambient textures of Brian Eno. Originally released in the eighties, this album stands the test of time and is still one of the better collaboration albums in Eno's catalouge.
5-0 out of 5 stars What about Amos Tutuola?
I don't understand why no review ever refers to Amos Tutuola's amazing book, from which this album's title was taken. Try reading it and then see how it relates to the album!

5-0 out of 5 stars What really happened in the eighties.
Albums like this one are what makes me grit my teeth when people talk about how vapid 1980's music was. If only they knew how much they missed that was brewing below the surface (The early Butthole Surfers and Big Black, for example).

5-0 out of 5 stars still great 6 years later
I bought the "Mozart Effect" CD and a few other classical CD's; Bach and another Mozart after my daughter was born in late 1998. We had a difficult time getting her to sleep at night and decided to try playing music to soothe her.The "Mozart Effect" CD worked every time.As soon as she heard the Toy Symphony play she would relax and just listen to the music until she fell asleep.It's been more than a year since we played the CD, and recently when she was ill, she asked to listen to "her music".It still has the same calming effect.Regardless of the controversy surrounding Mozart's ability to make babies more intelligent, I think this music is very comforting and enjoyable.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful CD
I received several classical music CD's as gifts before my daughter was born, and out of all of them (also including classical CD's I had already owned) this is definitely my favorite.It stands out because it is not full of simply "traditional" arrangements but rather is very light and playful - there are all sorts of cute little chirping and whirring noises that add to it as well.It is just a lot of fun, and provides the perfect background for cuddling with your new little one.4-0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised-
The Mozart Effect - Music for Babiesis a pretty good disc. Admittedly not the best Mozart recordings around, but then my child is not exactly picky. I prefer Genie's Angels All Around as a lullaby CD but either The Mozart Effect or Angels All Around would make excellent baby shower gifts. ... Read more

Editorial Review

One of the fundamental criticisms of New Age music is that it puts people to sleep. Here, Steven Halpern, one of the founding fathers of New Age, makes that his mission and, as you might expect, does an effective job of it. Drawing on catalog material from the early 1980s, Halpern builds an attractive collection of delicate, lighter-than-air sonic textures that nicely serves the intended purpose--to fill the silence with something prettier than white noise. Halpern does so by blending electric and acoustic piano, plus additional keyboards, to create soothing, improvisational, cloudlike musical abstractions that often convey the tranquil randomness of wind chimes in a soft breeze. The liner notes also promise your subconscious will be exposed to a series of subliminal, sleep-encouraging affirmations along the quiet, unstructured way. This may sound like so much frou-frou to the unconverted, but for anyone sincerely interested in a sleep aid, Halpern's disc is a certified snoozer, a New Age music box. Other New Age discs may accomplish the same purpose as Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sleep Soundly CD - Works for Me!
I don't usually have trouble falling asleep, but on occasion wake up during the night and can't get back to sleep. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give this CD a try. I love it! It's soothing, and the best part is - I've never heard the entire CD as I'm asleep!

4-0 out of 5 stars great for people who have problems going sleeping.
This CD is recommended for people who have problems getting to sleep. Now you can go to sleep freely without the use of drugs or sigarites! The track listings on the sampler is the old one. here is the new one.
5-0 out of 5 stars Musical Lunesta!
I'm assuming that, if you're reading this, your goal is a really good night's sleep, and not unearthing a musical masterpiece.This CD has that classic new age/soothing/synthesized/touchy/feeling quality to it -- but I have to admit, it really does possess some magical "lulling" effect on the mind.It seems to almost interfere with the busy brain talk that keeps oneawake and staring up at the ceiling.Perhaps that's why some reviewers got irritated with it, because it does seem to coax the busy little brain to sleep, and if your mind fights it, it would be annoying. But I found it very soothing. I only made it to the end of the CD once and I was mostly "out" by then. I figure it beats taking some prescription drug to mechanically knock the brain out. So if you're not sure, give it a try- if it doesn't put you right to sleep, on a minimum you'll feel very relaxed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Album!
I got this album about 2 years ago at a mall. What made me get this great album was after hering a song of a music channel playing a song titled:"Building Steam With A Grain of Salt". After hearing that awesome song, I instantly knew I had to get the cd. I listen to every song on the cd and all are very goog indeed. Right now, "Building Steam With a Grain of Salt", "What Does Your Soul Look Like" (Part 4), and "Midnight In A Perfect World". Im sure I left out a couple, but still, all of them are great. Recommendeed to anyone. Enjoy this great artifact.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sonic Alchemy
This record is a perfect example of how a sampler can be used as a instrument to make a album. Midnight In A Perfect world is my favorite track on this album and is probably one of the 25 best songs written or composed in the 20th century. If you see this record missing from someone's collection or know someone who hasn't listened to it , you need to step up and turn them on to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best BoC album, with appeal beyond the usual IDM crowd
Honestly, I don't even particularly like IDM (Intelligent Dance Music), but I find myself listening to this album constantly.From the title of the album and its various tracks ("Roygbiv," "Sixtyten," "Pete Standing Alone"), it's pretty clear that the major theme of the album is childhood.BoC juxtaposes warped and distorted sounds from old gradeschool documentaries from the 70's and 80's against hip hop beats to capture the feelings of uncertainty, mystery, and fear associated with childhood.Don't ask me how it works, but it does.
4-0 out of 5 stars Hypnotic, interesting
Music Has The Right To Children (great title, by the way) is a strange album. For one, its very long, and full of loosely structured electronic beat-driven "songs" that dont pull any of the usual emotional strings (well, most of the time anyway). The sounds are very textured and layered, and the melodies are quite unconventional, built on strange note sequences that can sometimes be jarring or dissonant, but are more usually oddly beautiful.

The novelty was stripmined from ethnobeat pop long ago, and this skin-deep confection is surprising only in its lack of edge and invention. On the plus side, the melodies are textured and lush, the beats entrancing, and a parade of gifted singers--Kristy Thirsk, Jacqui Hunt, and Sarah McLachlan included--bill and coo impressively. Lead single "Euphoria (Firefly)" has spark and spirit, while "Enchanted" and "Duende" are strong vehicles for Thirsk and Camille Henderson respectively. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Simply Excellent!
"Karma" is a great CD and next to "Enigma's MCMXC A.D." (the best) is one of the top new age ambient electronic CD's of the 90's.Karma does hold its own and is enchanting from start to finish! "Relax" from Blank & Jones and "Levitation" from Digital Moodz and Conjure One's "Extraordinary Ways" are also great newer choices.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than all the artists they rip off
They rip off everyone, from Enigma to Deep Forest to Dead Can Dance. And the result is much better than any album by any of those artists (with the exception of Dead Can Dance, of course). There are moments of spellbinding beauty in songs like "Duende" (my absolute favorite) and "Forgotten Worlds", where they sample Lisa Gerrard's voice. And the Sarah McLachlan collaboration is exceptional. If you are into the Enigma/Deep Forest/B-tribe genre, this album will blow you away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Every nerve like a firefly...
In all honesty, I'm fairly new to the new age genre.I only first discovered an interest in it about a year and a half ago, with the purchase of Enya's Watermark album.Since then, I have also discovered some very talented artists like Vangelis, Loreena McKennitt, Sheila Chandra and personal favorite Enigma.One thing about all of these artists is that their music has truly stood the test of time. In addition, they've been known to transcend their genre from time to time, often adding in new elements not before seen in the world of new age.However, there is one more artist that could very well be the most innovative of them all.That is Delerium.

4-0 out of 5 stars Building a Mysteria
If you are a fan of Enigma, Achillea, Ameythsium, Lesiem or Delerium (hmmm... that's a lot of "-ums" :) ) you will enjoy Mysteria's CD.
5-0 out of 5 stars Open Your Eyes, Enter Mysteria
Right off the start Tempting the Muse is a mighty big sounding record expanding musical horizons in the genres of chill out chant, electronica downtempo or enigmatic expressions. Great from start to finish, every track finds a way to build on the previous one as the musical prowess of M. Allison clearly has matured over the years. Being a fan of Enigma, Era and groups like Lesiem i found the music by Mysteria to be top notch right alongside the other artists mentioned. Almost like a passing of the torch from the those who came before. The overall feel captured on tempting the muse is a celestial vocal chilled mix of beats, electronica textures and late evening relaxing moods. A very enjoyable record overall. Great work!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another classic from the mind of Mark Allison
One of the highlights of my chill out listening of the late nineties was when I saw a very interesting cover on a CD in a used CD shop.I was then intrigued by the name of the artist and CD:The Spirit Level, "Of Earth and Sky".That began my journey into Mark Allison's creative, ethereal, beat-driven soundscapes.I continued this magical, musical journey with his masterpiece, Phobos.This is a classic and one every aficionado of great chill should own.Mr. Allison then ventured into the world of atmpospheric dance music with his gem,"Star Machine" which displayed his production prowess and gift for big beats.Now, our journey continues with Mysteria.

4-0 out of 5 stars Say Unkle!
Well first off, this is not exactly what I expect when I see a box set, 6 tracks? But as discouraging as it might seem, this is a very impressive set of remixes from some of the best producers out there! Incorporating remixes by so many unique and innovative artists was a smart move, each mix is totally different from the last and never gets boring in my opinion. Definately worth buying!

3-0 out of 5 stars Too many remixes of the same tracks
I am all for remixes and alternate versions, but dozens of remixes of the same 6 tracks gets tiring after a while. And considering that this is a 4-disc box set, itwould have made more sense if there was a wider variety of material. I mean, do we really need 15 remixes of "Reign" including the original version, which can be found on "Never, Never, Land?"At any rate, it is still somewhat pleasing to hear some "newish" Unkle output until their new proper CD comes out later this year. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars MOBY/18
Although from the beginning Moby could be classified as muszak for the 90's (I actually heard his music played in elevators on a number of occasions & it provided the background for a number of tv commercials), this CD is different. It is more personal, more heartfelt, and more enjoyable. In the jacket notes the artist states that he "played around with Marxism" but then returned to Christian, gospel roots. Certainly he seems almost militantly a-political at this stage. The CD as a whole seems to represent a lyrical minimalist synthesis of different styles on each track. And it somehow works in its depth of simplicity on one hand, and sometimes an expression of great sorrow and loss on the other. The gospel singers are great, but it is blues gospel--and this is what makes these particular songs so good. Give it a chance.
5-0 out of 5 stars Sad but Beautiful
With the exception of the uplifting 9/11 inspired opening We Are All Made of Stars and the bouncy Jam for the Ladies tossed into the middle this has to be one of the saddest albums ever made.From Track 2 In this World(Lordy don't you leave me all by myself)to One of These Mornings(One of these mornings won't be very long I'll be gone)to At Least We Tried this cd is filled with anguish and loneliness.Having said that nobody handles melancholy material better than Moby.Using different vocalists from Jennifer Price to Sinead O'Connor and beautiful atmospheric music to back the songs 18 has plenty of variety and breaks your heart more than once along the way.Moby took a big chance and probably lost some fans he gained with the more upbeat Play.Fortunately though his gamble pays off with some ofthe bleakest but most gorgously haunting music you'll ever hear.

4-0 out of 5 stars Shout out
This Swedish electropp dup is still pretty low-profile, though the Knife seem to be following in the footsteps of Broadcast -- eerie, atmospheric, pretty pop music.Third album "Silent Shout" returns to the band's root sounds, after the harder techno of their last album, and it's a breath of electronic fresh air.

Editorial Review

This Scottish duo's third album is their most shoegazer-y and gorgeous. For the first time, acoustic and electric instruments intrude on their landscape, which brings them closer to the work of artists like Four Tet and M83. But there's an intricacy to their beats and a strange, underwater quality to their samples that's strictly BoC. It's weird woozy music that's lovely and alien. "Dayvan Cowboy,"for instance, is a slow-paced bit of moody psychedelia; the drums don't even kick in until two thirds of the way through. The hypnotic, analog synth-driven "Farewell Fire"sounds like some lost tune by space-kraut pioneers Cluster. This is music you listen to when drugs don't work anymore; it's more reliable and a whole lot cheaper besides. "Oscar See Through Red Eye,"one of the more percussive songs, is perfect for languid late night dancing, but most of the album is sublimely made for the bean bag chairs. Read more

Very Nice. No gravel, traps or dumb trips here. So far my favorite BOC release and I have been listening since the mid 90's. If you can grasp this then you should also check out Rapoon.

This has been on heavy rotation at the office and it just gets better every play. If you are famliar with their sound this cd ia a must have... Tony

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazment.
I first heard BOC on an internet cartoon short. It was a song called "Beware the Freindly Stranger", from Geogaddi. I was immediatly intrigued by the strange melodies; and even though short, how thouroughly the song was conducted. BOC is a band I hold high in respect. Each time you listen to one of their pieces, you find something new within the song. A new sub-melody, a new noise here, some reversed speech here, and all sorts of easter eggs of musical sound. While songs from any other band will tire and become overplayed, the always fresh and new BOC will keep you interested.

Once a roving maverick who skipped from euphoric rave to speed-metal to ambient soundscaping as if just to prove he could, recent years have seen Richard Melville Hall relax into a comfortable--and yes, lucrative--niche. On the surface, Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars 2 and 1/2 stars for disc one.4 and a half for Ambient CD.
It really hurts to give such a low rating to one of my most treasured music artists.Mobys CD was a let down by all means. I tried, I tried so hard to love this CD but I have not touched it in three months or longer.The songs sound like pop songs with catchy lyrics, maybe for some people.I hope this is'nt the direction Moby continues to go in because I absolutely love his other music.Im sure these songs sound somewhat better live, I have found that to be true with much of his music.
4-0 out of 5 stars Quite beautiful, haunting and dreamy...
I hesitated for so long to get this.Having followed Moby's rise since circa 1994 it has been amazing to watch what an impact he has had on music and on various cultural media over the years.I like his early techno/rave stuff and have enjoyed the gift he has for using electronica to score some beautiful and haunting hymns.But I wondered: has Moby gone soft?has he sold out?I was pleasantly surprised.

Eno's theory of the "discreet music" he called ambient was far from the modern chill-out room: the idea was that it should function at very low volumes, unobtrusively coloring the atmosphere of a room. Evolving by tiny gradations, the long pieces of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great title, great music...
If my memory serves me well (which is usually does), critics hated Brian's ambient albums, calling them self indulgent and pretentious.They are neither.I love this album.It has a great title (one of the greatest ever), and the music, especially the first two pieces, are amongst the greatest things Eno has ever recorded.This and Thursday Afternoon make a great double bill.Majestic and beautiful....

5-0 out of 5 stars Seminal work
This is one of the very best ambient works ever made. Arguably the Godfather of Ambience, Eno created music that was complex and deeply moving, while at the same time keeping everything withing a minimalist context. This is NOT New Age / Muzak kitch, which has been passed of as ambience more than once. On the contrary, this ambience is real, legitimate music and should be considered as a genre worthy of the highest respect.
5-0 out of 5 stars Don't "think," just GO WITH IT...
All the fellow reviewers are correct.Please let me just add that "1/1" is absolutely the finest music I know of to act as sort of "white noise" when one wishes to drown out all..."sounds of pleasure" when one is making love enthusiastically. ... Read more
