AllMusic Review by

Dolphin Music for the Inner Child combines the talents of flutist/composer Christa Mitchell and keyboardist/composer Mike Rowland into a suite of gentle instrumentals inspired by the rhythms of water and the wisdom of dolphins. Simple and unobtrusive, tracks such as "Tranquility," "Dreamtime Dolphin," "A Gentle Message of Hope," and "Crown Chakra" certainly live up to their names with their undulating flute and synth melodies and dolphin recordings. The liner notes also include a bittersweet Finnish story about a mermaid who falls in love with a young fisherman and tells him the secrets of her people, with tragic results. A pretty, soothing album, Dolphin Music for the Inner Child is an above-average collection of new age instrumentals.
