Overview

International contemporary instrumental (new age) superstar Yiannis Hrysomallis' first album of new studio material since 2003's Ethnicity finds the self-taught Greek composer returning to his instrumental roots, crafting a 15-track onslaught of blistering calm that will appeal to fans of his mid-'90s heyday. Like Ethnicity, 2011's Truth of Touch is built on a foundation of international rhythms, but Yanni's understated phrases and keen melodic sense help to keep the project squarely in the accessible zone. Devoid of any epics (the longest track is just over five minutes), Truth of Touch is a largely instrumental ("the operatic "O Luce Che Brilla Nell'oscurità" features a male tenor lead) pop record that deftly weaves in heavily cinematic (the dreamy title cut sounds like an extension of Toto and Brian Eno's "Prophecy Theme" from David Lynch's Dune) vistas laced with smooth jazz and tribal rhythms. It may not break any new ground for the pianist/composer, but it's hardly a step back, resulting in a fine return to form for the king of the Acropolis.

I'm always on the look out for new music for myself and for my Lil Man. Yanni's album has a mixture of slow pace to up-pace - or as up-pace as you can imagine for soft instrumental. The track I enjoyed most was Echo of a Dream. It's great for relaxing the mind. If you haven't heard the album yet, at least listen to a sample of it and you might enjoy it with a nice glass of wine.

Truth of Touch is a beautiful album. The best of Yanni so far. It has nice electronic touch, which is wonderful. The vocal songs by Chloe, Nathan Pacheco and Leslie Mills are great. My favorites are Truth of Touch and Nine. A MUST HAVE.
