These days life is lived at a hectic pace, and try as you might there is little in the way of relaxation, or rather there was - until now. In this six CD set, there is the ultimate in relaxation music. Forget your whalesong, what you need is this. Just put this on in the evening - or indeed any time you want to put your feet up - and let yourself be whisked away, as I was, to a land where things are done at a more leisurely pace. There is a mixture here of some cool soul, smooth jazz, and even some music bordering on the religious (but not quite), to bring your pulse rate down. The Mediaeval Baebes regale us with those soaring voices and Barrington Pheloung reminds us that Inspector Morse was hardly hurried, as his theme illustrates. Celtic music, choral music, and even some electronic sounds courtesy of The Penquin Café Orchestra and Tangerine Dream serve to sooth the fevered brow. There's even some more mainstream artists such as Sinead O'Connor, Talk Talk and Roxy Music, Spandau Ballet and Feargal Sharkey. So it can be done - this is better than the mythical chill pill.
