Prayer for the Wild Things

All Music Guide - Steven McDonald
This is one of those albums that immediately bowls over anyone listening.

    discovered in the library and now buying it

    Both for the pleasure of hearing and deep relaxing effects. Tied to what I saw of the Rockies on last summer vacation. Creates an emotional climate of communion to wild landscapes those I saw and those I did not, but I imagine. Permits to think quietly, like a sort of meditation. I litteraly "entered" the music like the little boy entering the fairy tale in the book "never ending story". Is really worthy hearing to make your own idea. And whaouh! What a wonderful dream journey!
