This delicate, relaxing music makes good on the album's title MUSIC FOR HEALING. Like Eric Satie, Stephen Rhodes uses simple, repetitive piano patterns to induce hypnotic states of tranquility (especially on the first three tracks: "Angel of Healing," "Angelic Love," and "Divine Surrender"). Rhodes also employs synthesizer to create ambient atmospheres ("Prayer Garden"), which fit surprisingly well alongside the piano pieces. Overall, the music is wistful, airy, and deeply soothing, making MUSIC FOR HEALING a good soundtrack choice for yoga, deep meditation, or simply unwinding after work.
