Chuck Wild's Liquid Mind series should be required listening at rehabilitation centers, mental health facilities, and anywhere that cooler heads are required. (It might even work in the U.S. Congress.) Many listeners and readers might remember that a hospital in England used to play one of Brian Eno's albums in its delivery rooms; the music apparently had a calming effect on the expectant mothers and fathers. Liquid Mind IV: Unity is more of the same -- thank goodness -- from Wild. These deep psychoactive atmospheres are calm and gentle respites from the highways and byways of life. Deep listeners will find themselves approaching the fetal position as they curl up and relax. Wild's sound design is in top form. These soundscapes and atmospheres are vast and deep. This symphonic new age CD is a wonder. It will appeal to fans of Constance Demby, Kip Mazuy, James Johnson, and Sean Washburn. It is a classic.
