Review

Despite Yoga and Meditation's assurances to the contrary, there's nothing unique about the music it includes. These are by-the-numbers contemporary instrumental compositions by unknown performers that use every option in the new age playbook, from contemplative keyboards and spacy synthesizer beds to airy flutes and wind noise. There's no imagination or distinction to its title, and the song titles are even more generic -- "Shooting Star," "Floating Shadows," "Oriental Sunset," "Believe." It's possible these recordings will aid in relaxation -- after all, they're sleepy and slow. But Yoga and Meditation doesn't stand out among the hundreds of new age, relaxation, and meditation compilations on the market. ~ Johnny Loftus
