Liquid Mind X - Meditation

I have admired Chuck's music for many years now and with the release of his 10th studio album called Meditation I find that he continues to deliver music that fills you with a sense of calm no matter how stressful your day might have been. Chuck might be considered the poster child for taking a fast paced life and slowing it down to the point where life can be enjoyed minute by minute without skipping a single one. His early career with the 80's pop music group Missing Persons has long since faded in his rear-view mirror and he has found a home that is filled with music that allows him and the listener to move through their lives at a sustainable pace and at a pace that encourages living in the moment.
 
Liquid Mind X: Meditation is an album that is dedicated to a practice that more of us need to embrace as an antidote to the pounding we take every day by the pressure and stress of living in the 21st century. That practice is meditation and Chuck has appropriately named this latest offering Meditation as well as a tribute to a practice that more than any other thing in his life laid the foundation for the music that you will find on this album. The CD offers the listener a 61:00 minute journey of 6 tracks that flow seamlessly over the course of the hour allowing each person to spend time enveloped in an atmosphere of gentle washes that creates a perfect environment to let their mind slip into a healing state of meditation.  Chuck has perfected his music sensibilities over the years and this album shows that he is a master of creating soundscapes that will allow others to experience the peace that he obviously finds in composing and producing music such as this.
 
I would normally point out to the reader of reviews like this what my "favorite" tracks are on an album but with Chuck's music that is difficult to do seeing as how they function as a unified whole and to say that one track is preferred to another simply doesn't make any sense. The songs on this album are all parts of the body which is the complete album and to pull any one of them out for special recognition would serve only to take the focus off the totality of the work and shift attention to a particular piece of it. I would prefer to say that Chuck's meditative landscape stands as a world unto itself and that when the listener puts this album on they should leave themselves enough time to take the complete journey through this soothing soundscape. I would say leave yourself enough time to get the full benefits of the calming music that Chuck has recorded here and to really immerse yourself in the peace that I'm sure you will find via Liquid Mind's Meditation. As always I would recommend any of Chuck's Liquid Mind Series albums and I am glad to see that Real Music is making it widely available through their distribution network.
