The follow-up to the multi-platinum Pure Moods and Pure Moods II, PURE MOODS III contains more best-known songs by an impressive array of multi-platinum international superstars, including "Only If" from Enya and "On Sacred Ground" from Yanni.
The PURE MOODS compilation series is the place where ambient music, new age, and what can only be called "contemporary instrumental" intersect. While this collection moves through a widely varied batch of styles and artists (who would've imagined a paradigm that embraces Enya, Moby, and Blue Man Group?), the common theme is one of tranquil moods expressed through soft, flowing sounds.
From the soft focus, new age watercolors of Suzanne Ciani and David Lanz to the electronic oriented sound of Moby and trip-hoppers Mono, the overriding theme is one of lush tranquility. PURE MOODS III manages the difficult trick of maintaining a theme without becoming monochromatic.
