Forest Bathing is an ancient Japanese ritual of walking in the forest and bathing in the resonance nature gives off that they believe rejuvenate the body and ward off disease. This various artists collection, which stretches back to those at the birth of the label 30 plus years ago, is music for walking the in the woods and giving your mind a rest. These tracks were dandy in their original incarnations, and they work well here as a repurposed whole. With some of the top names in New Age on board, this collection lets you meditate whether you want to or not and there ain't a smidge of hippy dippy woven anywhere into it. Well done from top to bottom.
