AllMusic Review by

Probably the most well-known artist on the SOAR label roster, Spotted Eagle has made a name for himself with an atmospheric take on Native American musical tradition that has found a home among the new age crowd. Though he's most frequently found scoring soundtracks for film and TV, Human Rites is one of his most accessible albums, with drum machines, synthesizers, and guitars mixed in with his gorgeous Native American flute melodies. A fine combination of ancient traditions with more modern musical elements, Human Rites creates a dreamy, meditative sense of weightlessness without all the vapid new age fluff.
