Finally, I've got all three of the "Pure Moods" CD's! This is a superb series, featuring the very best of New Age music all over the world. In the third volume, Enigma and Sacred Spirits return once again with "Gravity of Love" and "Dela Dela", respectively. "Gravity of Love" makes me feel like I'm on another planet, and "Dela Dela" makes me feel like I'm watching an Indian ceremony. Other great songs include "Only If", "Porcelain", "Life In Mono", "Cristofori's Dream", "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence", "Silk Road", and "On Sacred Ground".
My favorite ones would be "Life In Mono" and "Cristofori's Dream". If you liked "Teardrop" from "Pure Moods II", you'll like "Life In Mono" as they are similar in style. "Cristofori's Dream", however, is a grogeous piano piece that builds up tension around the middle, and then slowly winds down like a music box in the end.
Unfortunately, there are some disappointing aspects with this CD. I don't know where "Synaesthetics" came from; it's overly long and repetitive, and it isn't even close to being New Age. Also, the interesting music of "Games Without Frontiers" and "Ever So Lonely" is underdone by the unimpressive vocals.
The first "Pure Moods" is the best one, and it's the closest one to New Age. However, "Pure Moods II" and "Pure Moods III" are welcome additions, as will be a "Pure Moods IV" if one is ever made.
