Pure Moods: Celestial Celebration

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Though Celestial Celebration seems like a title taken from the Big Book of New Age Buzzwords, the Pure Moods people do a nice job with this collection musically. There's plenty of big-name talent involved, with everyone contributing mellow material. From Charlie Hunter and Norah Jones running through a dusky jazz take on Bryan Ferry's "More Than This" to Röksopp's percussive ping-pong remix of the Kings of Convenience nugget "I Don't Know What I Can Save You From," Celestial Celebration helps make quiet the new loud.

The crashing percussion track is a nice touch.
