The genre can be hard to define with all of its sub-categories. The free-flowing, spiritual movement is a network of believers and holistic practitioners who stand together in the same circles. The New Age music movement may be difficult to describe but the music movement shares a cohesive philosophy and experience. The top ten is an amazing line up to be in and they all sound like winners and destined to be the art of the ancients for infinite generations. The new age genre is designed for presence leading to a distinctive atmosphere surrounding the body or atmosphere. Luminous it it’s quality it is a genre of divine intention and maybe not looked upon as music to meet everyone’s tastes, well maybe not in this lifetime anyway but maybe in the next one.
In the top position is an old soul Enya’s Dark Sky Island, on the chart at number 18 is now in the hot seat of musical contention. It is the eighth album from the Irish complexion grounded in middle English mystical remembrances and of auric dimensions with a very wide following. Dark Sky Island was released November 2015 by Aigle Music for Warner Music. It is a masterpiece and essential for diving deeply for people with special sensibilities. Dark Sky Island refers to the island of Sark, the first place to be designated a Dark Sky area designated for night sky wanderlust. The community decided to hold their technological spoils aside and leave it to the wild just so the night views could go uninterrupted by lights and noise from heaven to earth.
Number two goes to Sensual Chill was written by Yanni to be an unassuming journey of emotion that would translate internationally. ”People are more alike than they realize, from grandfather to his son, from father to grandchild.” Yanni wanted people to be able to hit repeat on their players and go on about their daily life with his music as the back drop. The album was released in January of this year speaking of new beginnings.
Number three. The Piano Guys, an American group, leapt on the chart in 77th place and have moved without a doubt in response to their fans higher and higher. It is the fifth album to be released in 2014 by Portrait Records. Wonders is earthy and soulfully willful. So good for unplugged Sundays and the grounding substance that comes with cooking dinner. Music to put on your quaint apron, kick off your work shoes and chop vegetables, stew meats, and sip some wine to. Let the sprites come out and dance and change the air. Run bubbles in the bath, dog licks on your face, let down your rock and roll hair.
Fourth place, Live from Carnegie Hall Audio +Red Rocks Concert, sold out. The Piano Guys Live! Portrait/Sony Music Masterpiece. They are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints also known as Mormons.
Fifth place, right in the middle of the Top 10 and the next three places in it is Armik. La Vida the 27th studio album from Armik. You would think might show tendencies of watered down layers but the opposite is true. Van Halen isn’t the one that can make a guitar talk.
Armik’s Romantic Spanish Guitar is sensual and passionate soul tingling romp. Lips wet with wine and wickedly flirtatious summonings. “I would eat thy flesh as a delicate fruit.” The album is a flame that devours do not go into this one lightly. “I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair,” be prepared. Did I forget it is in at number six.
Armik does it again. A little Romantic Spanish Guitar can go a long way to sequester the heart and seventh place. Let us run off to that magical someplace. Like a woman’s skirt as she twirls and shifts direction, the intangible vibration is enough. People admire the things they cannot explain.
8th place, 40 Hymns for forty Days Paul Cardall. Nature gave us all we need. This album gives rise to the higher vibration that is everything in the universe, every atom, and every elemental particle taunts the soul to remember the glory. Illustrious, preeminent and notable. Each song is short and lends to the lighter, divine ambiance by placing it within reach.
9th, Asian Meditation Music, 101 Songs. There is a kind of hush to this aural delicacy. Rich with musical silences it is a definite for those who are enslaved by the material world. Sound therapy at its healing finest released in 2015 by Music Paradise. If it were left to me to decide this would be number two possible one. It is a marvel. Released in 2015 by Tobacco Music Edition by Winter Hill Records.
10th place, Music for Deep Sleep by Various Artists. Release date 2004 by Genius Entertainment. If setting the mood for sleep is what you desire the lilting, falling, dropping presence of each note is calm and relaxation.
