I almost passed on this LP. Thinking, because of the title, that it would be upscale retail pop that one hears in “eclectic” new age mall outlets. I’m glad I didn’t. While this Karl Verkade work is ambient and meditative, it does have a sonic texture that doesn’t allow it to be stashed in the background. As the artist states, it is an “accompaniment” to any meditative or introspective down time for body and soul and it does envelope, rather than follow behind you.
