Review: Pure Moods Vol. 3 (Audio CD)

This is Volume 3, another excellent edition, of the Pure Moods collection. It has various artists that comprise the new age and world music genres. You may hear New Age music if you take yoga classes, visit massage parlors, or listen to instrumentals that soothe the body and mind. World music is usually traditional and indigenous rhythms such as Celtic, Native American, Asian and other regions.

This album has some popular songs from famous singers and original motion picture soundtracks. I enjoyed Enya, Sarah Brightman, Yanni, Enigma and others. The cover art of the album reminds me of modern art by painters such as Rothko and Walinksky with the emphasis on horizontal forms and simple color design. I highly recommend anyone to purchase and listen to the entire Pure Moods collection. It is available to buy on Amazon.

Here is a sample video, "Theme from the Silk Road" by Kitaro. It has an Far Eastern folk instrumental tune. I particularly love the changing of the seasons and beauty of nature in this video. For the discography, click on the link below. Enjoy the song!
