All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
David Arkenstone has been a master new age multi-instrumentalist who has taken listeners on numerous exciting synth-driven voyages over the years, most recently with interesting projects he's done with his wife Diane titled Trance World and Ancient Voices. David Arkenstone is on hand to lend his wife -- a composer, keyboardist, and vocalist -- support on keyboards, but it's clear very quickly that Diane Arkenstone is less interested in musical traveling than simply meditating and reflecting. Her music is lush and ambient, and some of those native vibes make the opening track "The Secret Garden" engaging as they mix with a choir comprised of her own voice. "The Angel's ...

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
David Arkenstone has been a master new age multi-instrumentalist who has taken listeners on numerous exciting synth-driven voyages over the years, most recently with interesting projects he's done with his wife Diane titled Trance World and Ancient Voices. David Arkenstone is on hand to lend his wife -- a composer, keyboardist, and vocalist -- support on keyboards, but it's clear very quickly that Diane Arkenstone is less interested in musical traveling than simply meditating and reflecting. Her music is lush and ambient, and some of those native vibes make the opening track "The Secret Garden" engaging as they mix with a choir comprised of her own voice. "The Angel's Voice" allows her solo operatic pipes to soar over a murky harp-like effect, while "A Gentle Touch" features a graceful flute melody. "Dreamscape" is, as its title promises, all mysticism and trance-inducing. Her focus is so much on gentle, mind-embracing atmospheres that the melodies don't really stand out. And there's not much rhythmic variation to distinguish songs from track to track. But maybe that's the point. Just pop it in, sit back, relax, and dream -- and for that it's a perfect soundtrack. The disc's title makes it clear, however, that she's interested in spiritual health, and you could view this disc as a journey toward that. It would just be nice if there would be a little more of interest besides cool atmospheres and standout elements from track to track.

    Healing Music

    Whether sitting back in a chair to relax or laying down to rest, the music from this CD will seem to calm and heal your troubled mind and spirit after a hard day of life. I play this CD back to back with several of Diane's other CD's. Her soft dreamy vocals blend perfect with the music, to create the escape you need. You will not regret the purchase.

    A healing dreamscape for your inner soul

    When you need to time to sit and relax, or to heal a troubled mind, body or soul, Diane has the perfect music in this CD. This is another CD you will listen to over and over again. You will not regret the purchase of this CD. I listen to this CD, along with Diane's "Aquaria" and "Jewel In The Sun" CD's back to back for hours of mental and physical peace after a hard day, or to just relax on days off.
