ERA like Lesiem and Magna Canta sing in latin like Gregorian chants.
Best known for The Mass which is more gregorian than gregorian chants...
In Looking From East it is not latin but eastern language, Tibetian...
Quite intresting to hear in a latin like slant/Accent...
In Ocarina_Dream_Opera it is japanese Opera...
Evocative soundscapes in the tradition of artists like Enigma & Deep Forest would best describe ERA in their first ever best of CD. Universal. 2005.
The Best Music Video Set I Own, August 30, 2006
Reviewer: Brook Garrettson "bgarrett" (Sacramento, CA)
Excellent theme, depth and taste were employed in the music videos contained on the DVD. The subject matter was intriguing, beautiful, dignified and stirring. I can't think of a music video other than Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" that comes close to the level of vivid intensity that is contained here.
WOW! is the word, December 2, 2002
Reviewer: MoonGoddess (Ontario, CA USA)
"Ameno (Remix)" starts out with no music at all - just a male choir singing in latin. Before long though, female voices join in with the males to continue the album's flow of gradually climbing to a more powerful crescendo ... A solo female vocalist comes in next for a brief moment in the spotlight, and then a subtle beat begins to chime in, only to explode with an infectious Enigma-like dance beat. (Now if that doesn't draw you in, I don't know what will). . .
The initial sound of Era is something that's very akin to Pilgrimage and Lesiem: Gregorian-type choral singing with the occassional electric guitar and english male/female rock vocal, which is the factor that evidently draws in comparisons to Enigma.
I admit, Era does seem to be a bit over-hyped with boundless 5-star reviews, but as I sit here listening to this CD, pondering all of its possible faults, I come up empty-handed. Songs like "Mother" and "Enae Volare Mezzo" make this a very enjoyable album, and I highly recommend it to fans of classical-crossover, new age, and maybe even world music.
Nothing can describe the feeling...., November 19, 2000
Reviewer: Seumas Hyslop (Sydney, Australia)
Nothing can describe the feeling when you FINALLY find out the name of this album, and that piece of music that has been haunting you for MONTHS finally has a name.
Australian readers won't be familiar with this album, but if they were to hear it, it would be instantly recognisable. Why? Because they've heard "Ameno (Remix)" time and time again in the Optus "The Power of Yes" advertising campaign on television. If you're ever wondered what that bit of music was, then you really should buy this CD. I myself searched for months for what this was - and even went to the stage of calling the company that ran the advertisements to find out.
There's nothing I can do to describe this album, other than to mention what I do with it. It's one of my favourite albums to put on, and then sit down, close my eyes and be truly lost in the ambient and yet strangely epic sound. Listening to this album, choruses well up around you as you listen, and the sound is so full and rounded that you almost feel trapped in such a beautiful piece of art.
I can't recommend this CD highly enough. If you like albums such as Deep Forest or especially Enigma with their "epic" quality, then give this a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
