All Music Guide - Michael Ofjord
Lakota Piano is an excellent new age recording from Brule. Inspired by the pioneering group XIT, (the first Native American rock band signed to a major label) Brule has taken their melodies and transposed them to essentially piano and keyboard strings.

At other times gentle percussion is heard gently, but it never overpowers the main keyboard based melody. What also makes the music come across so strongly is the clean, clear sound of the recording; it simply has an excellent clarity of tone that jumps out at the listener, albeit it in a soothing, relaxing way. Although the words that inspired this recording often describe the struggles and plights of the American Indian, the music consistently soothes and relaxes, and at best touches the heart.
