My Spirit Flies to You

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jeff Tamarkin
This is not, to paraphrase an old car commercial, your father's chanting Buddhist monks. Yes, chanted phrases are at the root of this recording, but it's what's going on around those chants that instantly tags My Spirit Flies to You as something else all together. The opening title track, for example, was reportedly a huge hit on iTunes in Spain, where the Buddhist Monks Sakya Tashi Ling are based.

The opening title track, for example, was reportedly a huge hit on iTunes in Spain, where the Buddhist Monks Sakya Tashi Ling are based. Not because Spain suddenly developed a fixation on Buddhist chants, as one might guess, but rather because of the tune's insistent synthesized dance beat and perky female chorus: think the macarena meets Tuvan throat singing. The lyrical content of each chant apparently focuses on a teaching of Buddhism: taking refuge until enlightenment, ridding oneself of negativity, purifying oneself, loving all sentient beings, universal compassion. Hard to take issue with any of that, and if contemporizing the delivery method works to bring those lessons to the larger listening public, then that's a good thing. But getting to those messages via the layers of droning, hackneyed, over-produced, new agey electronics, scrubbed clean of any edge, is anything but a religious experience.
