Rick's Perspective
The third of the trilogy of the "Airs" and as mentioned before, all three need re-recording. Night Airs and Sea Airs were both recorded during the same period of time which in retrospect was also a mistake.
Wakey's Verdict
As said before, wait until the re-recordings!
Little Known Trivia
All the "Airs" were conceived from walks on the Isle of Man and all mostly around the Peel area which is still one of the most beautiful spots and coastlines anywhere.

It`s a piano album, without electronic keyboards. New Age? May be, because music is elegiac and a little bit melancholic. But melancholy here is very light. "The Sad Dream", "Twightlight", "Night Owls"... The music fits the titles. Bach, Chopin, Rachmaninov, even Satie - you could find here influences from different epochs of piano classic music But it`s not that academic serious - here`s Rick! There`s no agression feelings in this music, and it is easy to listen to it. If you are lover of classical music - it would be intersting to compare Rick`s taste with your own. If you are true rock fan - may be this disc would be for you a door into the realm of classic music.

A sequel to Country Airs. Not as good as that one but if you like it you should get this one too.

Solo piano meets ambiental New Age music. In the world of electronic sounds, it is a refreshing experience in its intricate beauty and purity. Scintillating piano work, chromatic richness and nevertheless, great balance between the ambiental and essentially melodic character of the music.
