AllMusic Review by

Madacy's Healing Garden Waters series is in conjunction with a fragrance line of the same name. Appropriately, this particular volume is "an uplifting soundscape specially created to enhance your enjoyment of the pure joy fragrance." The album makes no guarantee of such enjoyment; however, it does feature a breezy set of flamenco-inspired acoustic guitar numbers. It makes for an exuberant yet relaxing listen, akin to an evening dinner on the terrace of lively Spanish bistro. Despite its liveliness, Pure Joy doesn't really put down roots. At the same time, "Mon Bijou," "Take Your Time," and the percussion-heavy "Mucho Fuerte" are all strong performances with robust choruses, perfectly suitable for casual background listening.
