Yanni Truth of Touch CD Review & Giveaway CLOSED

0 Shares

This is Yanni’s first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years and is a return to the genre Yanni helped create and advance.

“I work the rhythms in this album,” explains Yanni about the new material. “There is a beautiful complexity in these rhythms, a new sound design. I think the melodic content is very strong and very memorable. I was having fun with this album and that’s going to become apparent.”

On March 22, Yanni launched a 40-date tour of the US. The tour will take him through theaters in major cities across the US including Radio City Music Hall in NYC and the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

I am sad to say he is not coming anywhere near me.  My husband and I would have loved to have seen him in concert, but unless we are willing to driving hundreds of miles it just isn’t going to happen:(

You can purchase Truth of Touch at iTunes or at a variety of retailers nationwide.

My thoughts?

I have been a Yanni fan for quite a while.  My husband introduced me to Yanni back when we were in college.  We used to listen to Dare to Dream on a regular basis.  There is something inspiring and dream like within his music.  This new album, Truth  of Touch, is a mellower version of his earlier work.  But I find that fact to be a plus.  While I find Dare to Dream and Live at the Acropolis to be amazing driving pieces of music this new album is easier to listen to because of its low key nature.  I can listen to this album while I’m making supper and even keep it on DURING supper.  It doesn’t have the kind of distracting intensity of some of his other music and lends itself to more situations.

Most of the album is instrumental, however a few songs do have vocals.  The ones with vocals are my least favorite, as I prefer instrumental pieces.  My favorite song is #4- Voyage.  What a great name for a song.  I like music that lets me visually daydream while I’m listening to it and this is easy to do with Yanni.  This album reminds me of several Narada albums.  Narada albums are easy to listen to.  My husband and I love to play them in the car when we are driving on a road trip.  Without lyrics the music allows you to make up your own story.  Isn’t that what is most inspiring about music?

Overall I am impressed with Yanni’s new work.  I plan on downloading the CD to my Ipod.  It’s a keeper!
