This new album is classic Kitaro, with many layers of synthesizer and orchestral textures stating the themes. There are more classical elements on this record, and a more "composed" feel to the songwriting.

    An Outstanding Performance That Takes You On A Journey!

    This albumn is one of of two that I rate the very BEST in all the hundreds of CD's that I have in my library. Kitaro completely takes your mind and puts it on a world journey and takes you through many events as the journey continues. Your mind is completely at ease as you arrive at different destinations in your subliminal journey. This CD can effectively be used to take your mind away from outside interference, frustrations (heavy city traffic) or to lie back on an international flight as you put yourself in the cockpit and align your compass with the stars. I have played this CD at least 3,000 times in the last 12 years. I travel on international flights frequently and I take this CD and the Kitaro "Tenku" albumn as my sole music relaxation to make the time go by. I can honestly say you will get every penny in return for your investment in these CD's. Kitaro is truly an unsung hero in the world of modern composers. He is from Japan and creates such an open door to releasing all your stress and frustrations. I currently own 8 Kitaro CD's. Please note that if you buy this CD, that you should buy the "Tenku" albumn as well!
