From the exotic world-music flavor of Enigma's "Return to Innocence" to Enya's weightless, ethereal "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)," to the deeply moving "Theme From 'The Mission'" by Ennio Morricone, the songs on this compilation are mostly mood-enhancing instrumentals that complement each other perfectly.
With it's rich variety of material, PURE MOODS is the perfect album for those without multiple cd changers. It touches on the lightly jazzy (David A. Stewart's "Lily Was Here"), the strangely surreal (Angelo Badalamenti's "The Theme From Twin Peaks-Fire Walk With Me"), and the spiritual (Sacred Spirits' "Yeha-Noha [Wishes of Happiness & Prosperity]"). Artfully arranged and thoughtfully compiled, PURE MOODS is a deeply satisfying collection of atmospheric music.
