Delta's Tranquil Moods: Drift Away features mellow contemporary instrumentals by Hadley Hockensmith. Hockensmith's pieces mix elements of jazz, folk, pop, and new age into a soothing atmosphere, exemplified on "As the Deer," "Friendly Bossa," and "Dreamy." Some pieces, such as "Devotion," sound a little too bland and generic, but for the most part Tranquil Moods: Drift Away offers pretty and relaxing mood music. "For My Friend" and "Montsanto Park" are some of the other highlights of this collection, which manages to express many moods and still sound focused yet relaxing.
