Award-winning New Age composer Louie Andreas lays down a set of quiet, romantic tracks on his new release, Magickal Nights. Piano and synthesized flute feature heavily in the seven tracks here, dancing their way across light pads. It’s a beautifully made album that unfortunately is just too light for my personal tastes. There’s not a lot of difference, track to track, so the whole things leans toward the repetitive side before too long. It’s pleasant enough at first but without any real dynamic it loses its flavor well before it’s done. Listeners more in tune with very light New Age instrumentals/healing music might find more to take hold of here. I kept waiting for something more to happen. Samples are available, of course, so have a listen.
