AllMusic Review by

The Trance Planet Box Set repackages the first four volumes in the Trance Planet series as a four-disc box set. While the sound quality and track listings haven't been altered, it's a handy way to acquire all the recordings at once. The emphasis here is not on the electronic dance style known as trance, but rather on various forms of world music aimed at creating trance-like, meditative states in their listeners. It's a fascinating study in comparing and contrasting different -- yet similar -- musical approaches from around the world.
