Among the myriad of Greek-themed new age albums, the collection Relaxing Greece is a sun-drenched slice of azure, Mediterranean bliss. From the ever-dependable Lifescapes Music label, this 12-song instrumental collection of enchanting classical guitars and gently hissing waves plays out over a bed of tranquil synth pads sure to hush your anxieties and palpate your chakras. Take a much-needed holiday with warm, drowsy tracks like "Hotel Mystique," "Lustrous Moon," and "Ancient Sands." You can almost feel the late-afternoon breeze rippling through sun-dappled cypress trees on "Cascading Waters" with its serene flute melody and languid hand percussion. Prepare to be transported to the sunny shores of the Aegean for 55 minutes and return revived and at peace.
