ZEN WORLD

There must be something about this album that really appeals to me since I've listened to it almost five days in a row to the exclusion of everything except the CBC radio at work.

I can't say exactly what the appeal is -- perhaps the soft, romantic sensuous music coupled with female voices acting as instruments rather than singing straight lyrics (other than a few brief phrases on various selections).

Perhaps the liner notes sum it up precisely -- "how to slip into a pool of peace and serenity and get away from it all"
