Sanctity
In The Name Of The Mother The Daughter And The Holy Will
Liquid Light Records
www.ambientword.com


I have to admit, I had severe trepidation regarding this record. Anything that comes packaged with a few sticks of incense and a very simple incense burner kind of sends up warning signals to my very non-hippy self. The music fit abstractly with this metaphysical conceptuary, consisting mostly of downbeat ambient techno style tracks - a merging of world music with meditative Euro-trance. This is not necessarily a new concept, but it is one that has not been done very well since the first few Enigma releases. The tracks are inspiring and soft, perfect for placing the listener into a meditative state. There are beats on this record, but nothing that is heavy enough to pull one out of said meditative state. The songs are fairly simplistic, the lyrics whispered beautifully, the music floating along at a leisurely and relaxing pace. Lyrical concepts are based in dogma contrary to the basic premise of Anglo-Christianity and its worship of a male Godhead, instead expressing the sentiment found in song title (and album title) "In The Name Of The Mother The Daughter And The Holy Will". Regardless of your religious affiliation, the music is tranquil and immediately likeable. This is perfect background music for a set aside relaxation time, a bath, perhaps, or possibly for meditation, depending on how one practices.
