SECRET GARDEN - Earthsongs

Album: Earthsongs
Year: 2005
Genre: New Age,World,Celtic

The amazing duo Secret Garden consisting of Norwegian keyboardist/composer Rolf Lovland and Irish born violinist Fionnuala Sherry return with their fifth studio album..Earthsongs is a curious title for an album that is unrooted in the firmament and seems far removed from any traditions therein. Instead, the duo make music lost in a gauzy haze of nostalgia and sentimentality. On Earthsongs, they move further from the safely exotic, Celtic-meets-New-Age sound in which they forged their early successes and float down an easy-listening path. With this album, Secret Garden takes a seat in the faux-classical lounge, a room occupied by artists like Percy Faith, Bert Kaempfert, 101 Strings, and other forgotten meisters of orchestral pop who were washed aside by the breaking waves of rock in the early '60s.

Earthsongs is a refreshing magical listen with mesmerizing melodies that will take the listener to a far away place!!
