Jon and Vangelis - Page of Life

Artist: Jon and Vangelis
P: 1991 / 1998
No matter how you package this incredible album, it will always shine. This has a few perks that the original does not have, such as Change We Must and a great 5 minute Vangelis intro to Wisdom Chain. Wisdom Chain runs almost 5 minutes longer than the version on the Arista. It is a must for all completists, but if you are only getting one Page of Life, you need the import version which has 4 other incredible songs strangely not on the American release. Vangelis himself was very upset that this version was ever released. Some of the songs were remixed and do sound different from the originals, but, to be fair to Jon Anderson, it still is a masterpiece of an album. The song Page of Life must be one of the most beautiful songs ever written. Change We must and Garden of Senses are so inspirational and uplifting. It is hard to listen to this album and not feel more relaxed and inspired. I suggest buying both versions, you really can't lose. You here bits of music missing or hidden from the original release and Andersons voice is much clearer. My advice is to buy both discs, create a new CD - for personal use of course - with all the tracks from this release and the additional tracks from the original release. You then have a stunning 64 minute Jon and Vangelis Release which includes the wonderful 'Change We Must'....Enjoy..

Jon Palmer - The Source

Artist: Jon Palmer
P: 1987 - 89 /1998

"All is at peace as the mind is gently stimulated into visions of Eden. ...Great use is made of space leaving the imagination to fill in the detail. ...the tapestry of sound pulsating and ever drifting in a very delicate way. It is as if there is a breeze causing very faint undulations over a pond which the slightest disturbance would wreck. 'Cat Songs...' rounds off the album with very strange processed sounds... ...It lasts for just over a minute but maintains the ominous, eerie feeling that permeates the whole album."
From a review by David Law (Neu Harmony)

A compilation of Ambient/Meditational pieces from Jon's early releases, "A Wheel of Stars" and "Cat Songs to an Ancient Moon". The music has been digitally cleaned up and enhanced by Ian Boddy, one of the UK's most respected composers.

Jonn Serrie - Flightpath

Artist: Jonn Serrie
P: 1989

This is one of Serrie's masterpieces. In particular "Muroc", "Deep Spaceship", and "Glyder".
These songs are extremely relaxing songs which are great for meditation too, and for removing stress from one's life. Unlike Serrie's earlier work, this music has a more daytime ambiance to it. 
After the incredible success of "...Stars Go With You", this second outing by Serrie continues to demonstrate his mastery of space music - this time a little closer to Earth as we get a piece of stratosphere.
This is not a single-minded concept like "Stars", we journey into other atmospheric environments prior to the departure into outer space. After the CD clears some banal compositions (the title track and "Sky Safari" [a fusion piece relating the then cliche rain forest music and the sky, I surmise] the flightpath takes us to Muroc - strikingly peaceful and beautiful moments which should not be overlooked by anyone who enjoys good music.
The space music on the second portion of the album, anchored by the cosmic titan "Deep Starship" (cast adrift alone in space for the rest of eternity), is on par with any of Serrie's spacemanship to date.
In total, this 1989 work is magnificent and worthy of the highest accolades.

Jonn Serrie - Planetary Chronicles Vol. 1

Artist: Jonn Serrie
P: 1992

A terrific work that is worthy of the very best of the "deep space probes" of radio programs such as "Hearts of Space". Mr. Serrie delivers exactly what those who sit in their deck hammock on a cool night desire; a rich audio companion to the lights of the firmament.

Jorge Reyes - Comala

Artist: Jorge Reyes
P: 1989
The album Comala is inspired on the surrealistic novel Pedro Paramo by mexican writer Juan Rulfo. It's a short story where "Rulfo's characters emerge gradually from a landscape of death and decay, as his tale offers testament to the enduring integrity of the human soul."
The music is designed to submerge the listener in a state of consciousness where boundaries between life and death disappear and the use of acoustics and chanting will transport you to Rulfo's mythic Comala.
The remarkable use of pre-hispanic instruments and real native american ritualistic chanting mixed with futuristic sounds and synthesizers creates an atmospheric limbo of the afterlife.
The old woman chanting is Maria Sabina, a Mazatec curandera / high priestess that used to conduct ceremonial mushroom rituals in the 60's and 70's. Maria Sabina lived in Huautla de Jimenez, a small village in Oaxaca, Mexico.
John Lennon, Peter Townshend, Mick Jagger, and Bob Dylan are some of the celebrities who traveled to Huautla, seeking the spiritual guidance of Maria Sabina.
In any case, Jorge Reyes work of art combines past and present, the old and the new and transports the listener to a world that exists only in a space in time called Comala.

Karl Bartos - Communication LTD

Artist: Karl Bartos
P: 2003

Enchanting melodies, glamour and somehow embarrassing (but charming) lyrics in vocoder style. Everything we always loved Kraftwerk for.
"Communication" is surely not a great show, but an ambitious update of Techno Pop at his best.
This is the LTD Version with the Video as Bonus on the CD.

Kayanis - Synesthesis
Artist: Kayanis
P: 2001
Synenthesis is a much larger scale project. It is comprised of nine tracks that work together as a cohesive whole. Tempo and style changes are frequent--there are touches of classical, new age, progressive and even metal. Kayanis, accompanied by Jacek Szczepkowski, the sound engineer, entered the Keyamo Studio (built specially for the project) on January 2, 2001. The left it for good in June--yet still some work was to be doney at a mastering facility. More than a hundred and fifty musicians and vocalists participated in the recording. The album involves a good load of synth sounds, extraordinary guitar work, vocals, choirs and a chamber orchestra. The album is a union of styles--it cannot really be compared to anything, Synesthesis marks a new path in synth-based music: somewhere between EM, progressive rock and classical film music. Gentle yet extremely powerful at times, classical yet modern, passionate and strong but still melodious, sometimes even relaxing, this is an album of tremendous proportions. It won't leave your CD player for long once you put it on.

Keith Emerson - At the Movies (3CD Set)

Artist: Keith Emerson
P:  2005

All the Keith Emerson movie soundtracks in one package. Includes recent Godzilla "Final Wars" movie. Great to hear it all in one package. "Inferno," and "Best Revenge" are some of Emo's best work along with the "Nighthawks." As with soundtracks, some songs are filler, some with cheesy lyrics, but it is a nice package and would recommend it to any Emerson fan, he is an amazing composer and keyboardist. The liner notes are interesting to read.
This is Keith Emerson's music for Italian, American and Japanese films, one disc for each. Those films are:

Inferno (1980)
Nighthawks (1981)
Best Revenge (1982)
Harmagedon (1983)
La Chiesa (1989)
Murderock (1990)
Godzilla: Final Wars (2004)

Keith Emerson - The Christmas Album

Artist: Keith Emerson
P: 1995

From the fingers that fused 'Tarkus'; from the mind that molded maniacal music with keyboard molestations; from the honky who helped heave huge pianos end over end... comes one of the most creative Christmas albums of all time. There are incredible arrangements included within this collection as well as stellar performances from the premiere key-meister of our time. The album closes with the most soulful version of 'Silent Night' that you will ever hear. Keith has been called every name in the book from genius to prodigy to legend. Listen to this album, though and get lost in the inherent soulfulness of the season. Then call Emerson the bringer of peace-filled tidings.

Kelvin L. Smith - Galaxy Gate

Artist: Kelvin L. Smith
P: 1999
Kelvin has changed his style slightly crossing avant ambient and even space e.m. barriers, which upon talking to Kelvin explained that the composition was built around the theme of four books he had read on related subjects. The album is a 'concept album', and should be likened to and listened to in as much?
