To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Liquid Mind VIII: Sleep, Chuck Wild comes back with the new Liquid Mind XI: Deep Sleep, a set to get you ready for those REM cycles before they hit you. A soundscape that creates a wonderful, enveloping blanket of sound to insulate you from the clamor of the real world, the six tracks on board here will probably take several listenings to get through as it’s sure to send you off to dreamland … in a good way! Not measured by anything but Wild’s instincts, that visceralness is probably what makes this series so successful on its many levels. And it hits that chord again here. Reach for this as an alternative to your usual downers the next time the need strikes.

As a long time listener of Liquid Mind, aka Chuck Wild, I have to admit that there is something about the music that he composes that simply harmonizes with the body and mind’s natural vibrations and just allows you to relax and destress to a remarkable degree. That’s not to say that other artists’ music doesn’t accomplish the same thing at times, but with Liquid Mind compositions it doesn’t appear to be happenstance that each album reaches that goal almost naturally. In fact, I have come to expect that kind of reaction to listening to the music that Chuck Wild composes as Liquid Mind.
 
Wild’s latest release, called Deep Sleep, is no exception to that rule. This album is a follow up to an earlier Liquid Mind release on Real Music called Sleep and seeks to walk the same tonal path as the earlier release so as to offer a second CD specifically composed and mixed to enhance a person’s ability to drift into a state that will allow them to achieve a most restful night’s sleep. Most artists would find the fact that their music puts people to sleep as being less than desirable, but with Liquid Mind’s music that is high praise and I must admit that the songs on Deep Sleep will help you along that very path.
 
The thing about Liquid Mind releases is that I don’t think of them in terms of individual tracks, but rather I almost always consider Wild’s music as a whole project. Deep Sleep features six tracks that run for a total time of almost sixty-four minutes, but as I listen to the album, other than the short pauses between tracks, I rarely notice that the track has changed because of the way that the music is mixed. Even though the composition is different, it has many common elements with the other songs on the album so that nothing disturbs the flow of the music or the drift that the listener is following as it guides them out of being engaged with the world to a place where peace and sleep might be found.
 
As a reviewer I would ordinarily pick a song or two that sums up in my mind the heart of the album or that at least spoke to me in some special way, but I am not going to do that with Deep Sleep because I think that Wild has spent a lot of time building just the right movement to these tracks that to separate them and try to look at them individually would not do them justice, and that is saying a lot about the care and effort that has been taken through the creative process of making this Liquid Mind release. It is obvious that Wild has taken great care in composing the music and sequencing it in such a way that it accomplishes just what the title says, Deep Sleep.
 
The lush, serene soundscapes found on this release are carefully sculpted to avoid upper frequencies and any element that might jar the listener out of the state that they have entered into as the music plays. Wild, through his Liquid Mind releases, has become a consummate artist who purveys something that is sorely missing in a world that seems to always be on the edge of chaos in one way or another. And that something is an aura of peace which he bestows freely on those who have ever been fortunate enough to have purchased his music in the past, put it on, and listened to it as they’ve drifted off to sleep. If you are looking for music to put on just before bed, then look no further. But don’t overlook the fact that you can just as easily use Deep Sleep to allow your mind to be more receptive to what you are reading, or simply to separate the world outside the door to your home from the world inside your home.

I remember many years past being told about Liquid Mind and the magic at the hands of a certain Chuck Wild. Now I sit here listening to the latest release full in the knowledge that Wild, as they say, has still got it!
 
Liquid Mind XI: Deep Sleep is an album that will aid you to do just that, it floats majestically around you like a peaceful cloud of great calm. Listen to the opening track called “Night Whispers” and allow it to soak you with its charms. I found this track very moving and at times deeply emotional.
 
Within “Teach Me to Love” was a composition that continued the healing process I was feeling; several memories of times past drifted across the battlefield of my life and I found that this composition started to ease those moments of sadness, and turn them into moments of peace.
 
The lengths of the tracks are all long form, between eight and fourteen minutes, and are absolutely perfect for this release and its goal, that is to enable deep sleep. We can slide into the next piece called “Dreamland” with ease. Wild’s skill and ability to produce such beautiful healing and restful resonances is utterly amazing and through “Dreamland” I felt a sense of positivity forming within the musical sphere created by the artist.
 
I can’t believe it was 1994 when the first Liquid Mind album was released and since then Chuck Wild has been giving his music to the world with a genuine purpose of helping heal and calm the restless mind. Liquid Mind XI: Deep Sleep is a testament to his cause, to his artistry and we must salute that. The title track is slightly lighter, as we ease further down into the realms of night peace.  It is like we are now very gently floating on a warm sea under a star filled sky, totally calm and safe, utterly outstanding and blissful.
 
Our penultimate arrangement is called “Renewal,” again its soft refrain continues the resting, healing experience and Wild’s music now seems to be almost like the stroking loving hand of an angel upon your brow; there is a slight ethereal feel to this composition, as well.

This constant reverie of beauty leads us now to the final track called “Compassion.”  It is also the longest on the release. This is incredibly meaningful, an opus to the love that is being shared so deeply here.  This is a truly emotive arrangement, but doesn’t intrude and only seems to enhance the overall encounter, and slowly, softly, eases you into a totally idyllic, deep sleep.
 
Chuck Wild can be proud of this addition to his series of Liquid Mind albums that we have all grown to know and love, and in Liquid Mind XI: Deep Sleep, within its soft arms of musical sanctuary, you can be certain that you have purchased an album of complete and absolute quality. Thoroughly recommended.
