AllMusic Review by

Another volume of the Tranquil World series, Tranquil World: Mystic Easter Island mixes field recordings from the region with new age instrumental music. The collection is at its best when the music stays close to tradition and doesn't overpower the field recordings, as on "Han Makas, Vision of an Island," "Te Pito, the Center of the World," and "Mana's Curse." Despite some cheap-sounding keyboard textures on tracks like "Under Pandanus' Sails" and "Moai -- The Magic of the Giant Stones," Tranquil World: Mystic Easter Island is a soothing, fairly exotic collection that finds a harmonious balance between music and nature.
