20 Best of Relaxation Review

by Johnny Loftus

This set from Madacy features contributions from Daniel Donadi, Jeffrey Smith, Howard Donenfeld, Curtis Lawyer, and Roland Hanneman. It's basic contemporary instrumental -- tracks range from the stately (Donenfeld's "Dance of the Maples"), to the gently whimsical (Hanneman's flute-led "Walk in the Meadow"), or solo instrumental (Smith's "Dance of the Dawn"). While music like this isn't supposed to take risks, 20 Best of Relaxation could have been a little more distinctive -- it follows the tenets of the genre pretty blindly. Still, it is rather relaxing.
