Eschewing the standard dreamy, new age synthesizer music so commonly marketed toward meditation and relaxation, CC Entertainment's Soothing Yoga: Acoustic is a collection of popular rock and pop songs adapted and appropriately mellowed for acoustic guitar. It's a reliable concept, presented here over the course of ten somewhat random selections ranging from modern hits like Fun.'s "We Are Young" and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zero's "Home" to classics like Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are." While the playlist seems to have been culled from whatever was on the two guitarists' iPods at the time of the recording session, the music is decently played and just goes to show that almost any composition can be adapted to fit the right mood, regardless of its original context.
