AllMusic Review by Carol Wright

On The Secret Garden, David Sun offers two extended tracks for relaxation and inspiration. His "Butterfly World" includes musical tones (similar to a reverbed harp or Hawaiian guitar) in predictable arpeggio patterns. What makes the track magical is the sonic environment: layers of bird songs, angel choirs, flitting flute melodies, and windchimes. "Gateway to Nature" includes carefree clarion and synth string arpeggios and melodies, sprightly bird songs, the murmur of a brook, and wind chimes. Clarinets or oboes seem to mimic bird calls, and the whole has an piquant Oriental flavor. Pleasant, but not particularly expansive or original.
