Music for Love
This music has an enveloping, dreamy quality where the textures are very soothing and uplifting, and yet it is somehow quixotic too. 'Heal your heart' and 'Free yourself' feature classically trained singer Susanna, and are vaguely reminiscent of Madonna in her more holy incarnation, whilst the magnificent, anthemic, trance-like 'Return to your soul' recalls Enigma, but with a hint of a Spanish folk melody combined with a baroque adagio in the mix! 'Goldenheart' could almost be a duet sung by Dolly Parton and and Kenny Rogers, and 'Angel of the south' is a lilting, languid, innocent instrumental that conjures up a warm beach somewhere, as the sun goes down. The whole effect is very relaxing and sunny, almost fragrant, and the melodies are entirely memorable and attractive. Lyrically, Asher has penned some very accessible songs here, but invariably with cosmic themes, and one feels given to... even bestowed upon, somehow. It IS music for love... for love of life, higher love, love of fun and love of beauty. The producer here is James Asher, himself a formidable new-age instrumental and percussion artist, and an internationally successful library composer. First released a decade ago, Music for Love is re-released here with new artwork, and retains a timeless appeal.
