Originally recorded in 1980, this assortment of dated electronic music was rereleased in 1989 when Yanni's career was just starting to catch fire. Recognize it for what it is: an historical document, an audio time capsule intended only for the most zealous of fans. It appears Yanni was in something of a Styx phase when he composed much of this music. It has its occasional charms, but they are sporadic. --Terry Wood
I have listened to a lot of neo classical new age/pop music. Yanni's music is different and distinct-He makes you feel and breath like a decent human being with your hope and faith restored once again after a long day at the office. Although I do not identify with the spirituality of New Age music, his music is one of a kind-a modern Tsaikofski-as they used to call him. His music is progressive as it gives meaning to my life as negative feelings are set aside and neutrilized everytime I listening to him.
I can't recommend this cd high enough. Hope He continues to write more encouraging music-we all need to restore our faith in humanity and the world.

At first I thought it was sad that it's only on physical disk at this time (July 2012), but it's well worth it to order the whole album, especially at these prices. It's nice to hold a bit of history in your hand.
