Let Go by Christoph Berghorn
- posted by Lillian on 8/20/2019

Christoph Berghorn is a bright new talent out of Germany, who has created a stunning debut new age recording (Let Go) that has 22-tunes and 71-minutes of amazingly-wonderful music featuring piano and lots of saxophone plus occasional synth, cello, flute, acoustic guitar, flugelhorn, harp, percussion and drums. While a great composer and keyboardist, his most amazing talent is as an arranger. His co-producer Clemens Paskert has produced other top new age acts (Uwe Gronau, Luna Blanca). Between them they have created a well-produced, excellently-arranged and highly-melodic album that has wonderful combinations of instrumentation such as piano with sax, or piano with cello, or piano and oboe. This is lovely instrumental music with a depth of feeling that reaches into the listener’s soul.

Hushabye by Rick Sparks
- posted by Gena on 8/20/2019

New age music fans have come to love the soft, dreamy music of Rick Sparks and his trademark sound featuring piano, string sections and soft angelic choirs doing wordless vocalizations. It is like jumping into a feather bed with a cumulus cloud as a pillow. Now Sparks is back with a new album of gentle lullabies, absolutely perfect new age music, titled HUSHABYE. This is extremely peaceful, relaxing music. The compositions (nine originals and two covers) can be used to calm children or help them go to sleep, make adults unwind after a long and stressful day, or serve as sounds to assist with meditation, prayer or contemplation. This is simply beautiful music that will make anyone’s day better.

Seventh Chakra by Crystalline Dream
- posted by Steve Sheppard on 8/14/2019
Best new age album released for many years!
The best testimonial you can get for an album like this is from someone who has worked with the Chakra system for many years, and understands the nature of ambient new age music, so as a Reiki Master Teacher since 2005 and presenter of this style of music since 1998, I guess that qualifies me to say that this is one of the best albums, based on what could be described as the spiritual nervous system, I have heard for some 20 years.
Crystalline Dream aka Richard Ross has brought to the world something truly special here, for those of us who offer healing and understand this system, it is a total gem of an album that could be used not only for the benefit of others health, but for meditation for oneself too.
Listen to Sensual Waters, which features the incredible Peter Phippen on flute and you will see exactly what I mean, then allow yourself to be centred with such an illuminating offering like Inner Will, which features Korey Ross on guitar, making the whole composition so truly ambient and fluent.
The Cello of Dr Alex Kelly features on two tracks, one of them my favourite piece Inner Voice, a composition that enjoys its multi instrumental structure; the added vocalisations on this piece create a dream filled oasis of musical mastery.
I believe without hesitation that this is the best work so far by Crystalline Dream; Ross has manufactured 7 tracks of heavenly balance, and in doing so honouring the Chakra system at the same time.
Ross whose amazing talents stretch wide and far on flute, recorders, keyboards, and even vocals, will be remembered for Seventh Chakra, as possibly one of the best new age albums released for many years, it is without doubt a timeless classic indeed.
