"Falling Awake" by Kirtana (New-Age/Easy-Listening artist from California (CA))

"Falling Awake" by musical veteran Kirtana is a refreshing, soul-pacifying collection of easy-listening/new-age tunes. "The Train Song" provides an excellent presentation of Kirtana's heart-felt vocal performances. Her soft, airy, and smooth timbre successfully passes on a mood of tranquility and peace. The piano-driven "Home" urges listeners to look within to find innocence, and to not define their self-worth by the words of another or even their own mood. Kirtana consistently treats listeners to motivational and spiritual lyrics that encourage healing and freedom from pain. Unencumbered production provides a perfect musical atmosphere for these songs, allowing Kirtana's angelic voice and the accompanying instruments to shine in their true beauty. If you enjoy inspirational, spiritual, new age, or easy-listening songs, "Falling Awake" should be at the top of your to-buy list!

"Taking Chances" by Celine Dion (Easy-Listening/Pop artist from Las Vegas, Nevada (NV))

After three years away from the English recording scene, Celine Dion is back with her first single, "Taking Chances," from her highly anticipated November 2007 release. This mid-tempo, highly melodic, inspirational, exploding-chorus single offers up all the signature elements that have proven to produce hits for Celine in her almost two-decade-long music career. Perhaps refreshingly, "Taking Chances" elevates to a strong modern-rock sound during its climax. Although many fans do not look favorably on this latest release (because it is not her song, but a cover of Platinum Weird's song), Celine tackles this sure-to-be hit with her trademark multi-octave, passionate vocals. This single carves a solid path, many would hope, for Celine to make the transition from her blockbuster Vegas show to the tour bus! Celine fans, look out for the release of her new LP hitting stores this November!

"Reflections" by John Paul Rudolph (Easy-Listening artist from Bloomington Peoria, Illinois (IL))

"Reflections" by the stunning vocalist John Paul Rudolph is a heart-warming reinvention of easy-listening and modern opera classics!

Wrapped up with solid professional production, "Reflections" comes across as the complete package.
