NEW AGE: New Age, WORLD: World Fusion

One of the deepest, most moving works since Peter Gabriel''s Last Temptation of https://www.tradebit.comitching compositions. Reach [es] back through the aeons. The mix of ancient acoustic, and cutting edge digital instruments create [s] a timeless quality. A journey of discovery to mystical places, encountering magical characters. A discovery of self and of history.

An ambitious and successful project. Vibrant, flowing, and ecstatic, this sonorous masterwork should be listened to without interruption.
P. J. Birosik, New Age Retailer

Sure to fuel the imagination with its richly impressionistic soundscapes. Hot desert winds seem to blow through selections featuring Omar Faruk. Brian Keane contributes elegant acoustic guitar, and soprano saxophonist Marion Meadows wails like an ecstaic dervish. Dense synthesizer textures and dreamy electronic effects...make Muse of the Round Sky feel lke one long luscious mirage.
Linda Kohanov, New Age Journal

"How sweet it were, hearing the downwards stream,/With half shut eyes ever to seem/Falling asleep in a half dream!" Tennyson''s "The Lotus Eaters" could describe the music of Paul Avgerinos. [It] evokes the archetypal mythis of those most ancient days.
New Visions

Unlike anything I have previously encountered. A fine album, defying categorization. Try? Well, how about early Tangerine Dream meets Peter Gabriel''s Passion. Close, but not quite, and that''s meant as a big compliment.
The Name [London]

Wow! A really incredible project. Atmospheric music painting a rich sonorous landscape, tinted with Greek and Arabic overtones, drawn from a haunting, soulful palette. A space music classic. Highly recommended.
Tom Farrell, Music Connection

Avgerinos draws on his Greek heritage more successfully than Yanni and Vangelis. Beautifully recorded, relaxing and thoughtful. A great soundtrack for your own private movie.
