Nothing can describe the feeling when you FINALLY find out the name of this album, and that piece of music that has been haunting you for MONTHS finally has a name.

Australian readers won’t be familiar with this album, but if they were to hear it, it would be instantly recognisable. Why? Because they’ve heard “Ameno (Remix)” time and time again in the Optus “The Power of Yes” advertising campaign on television. If you’re ever wondered what that bit of music was, then you really should buy this CD. I myself searched for months for what this was – and even went to the stage of calling the company that ran the advertisements to find out.

There’s nothing I can do to describe this album, other than to mention what I do with it. It’s one of my favourite albums to put on, and then sit down, close my eyes and be truly lost in the ambient and yet strangely epic sound. Listening to this album, choruses well up around you as you listen, and the sound is so full and rounded that you almost feel trapped in such a beautiful piece of art.

I can’t recommend this CD highly enough. If you like albums such as Deep Forest or especially Enigma with their “epic” quality, then give this a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
