5.0 out of 5 stars - A CD to be Heard
BySifu Zhouon June 23, 2000
To be honest, I purchased this thinking that many tracks would be the same as on the main albums, Track 4 is my favourite, catching a dark eastern atmosphere, followed by Black Elk. There are some tracks which don't quite hack it like track 2, sounding like an Arabic budget fairy tale series theme. It's all orientated to middle eastern new age, as you would expect, with spot-on cover art. A good mix of tracks are here giving a 'different' atmosphere - definately one for fans of new age or for unusual backing music. Some of these tracks could have easily been used in films like 'The Mummy'.

This is one of my favourite albums by Mars Lasar. I have ripped this cd to my mp3 player and I always make sure to carry it with me if I'm going on a roadtrip in my car. There's something quite amazing about this cd. It is Mars at his best and it's very easy to sit through several sessions of this if you hit the repeat button. It is that good.
4.0 out of 5 stars - Anyone remember Shen and Zhou's 1998 Olympic long program?
By Michael Schuron February 4, 2009
I became interested in mars lasar's music when I watched the 1998 World Figure skating pairs long program on television. The Chinese pair of Xue Shen and Zhou Hongbo used music from Tracks one & six off this album for their program. I like this album very much. The music is modern, very innovative and very exciting.
