Long before the words “Chill Out” and “Mood” were used to sub-categorize music that was groove induced but decidedly laid back, NuSound aka Ivan Kopas was producing music that was hard to describe, yet reminiscent of things heard before. It was warm. It was comforting – it was cool and it was most definitely hip. While not overtly 'erotic' - one thing was for sure, the music was indeed sensual and erotic in its pulse and delivery. Descriptions galore were to follow. It sounds like Mannheim Steamroller teamed up with William Orbit and set their music to a tribal backdrop. Well whatever the conclusion, the music, the series and now the collection, have set the “mood” for countless sessions of romantic encounters. Sensual, Dynamic, Intriguing, and Exciting – Erotic Moods The Collection brings the first 3 volumes of the series together in one package.

it's really interesting to find out that there may be two artists that are so alike, but maybe it's not that either. Well, this CD is fabulous, and in fact, reminds me of one that I found at this location.

You will find them to both be vital and helpful for you in your search for true and divine sensual and sexual release.

Erotic Moods Vol. 1 & 2, March 28, 2002

Sensual...pleasing to the mind and senses!! I just purchased these two and my husband and I listened to them all night long! It made our evening perfect...a little wine...incense...candles and this music! It should have warning lables..."Content will provoke romance!"
While I wasn't sure what to expect from a disc that promised "erotic moods," this collection of rhythmic compositions proved surprisingly satisfying. Whether chant-like, full of echoes, soundtrack-like, techno, jazzy, new age, heavenly or just soothing, each piece has a strong pulse. It offers a charming combination of tunes by male and female vocalists and instrumentals that's sure to please, no matter what your mood.
Each and every one of the 15 musical selections has a lot to offer. Although this disc proves somewhat similar in nature to my tried and true mood music (Yanni, Enya, James Horner and Vangelis), Erotic Moods will certainly get the heart pounding and emotions flowing in a pinch.
The Very Best Of features pleasing sounds under exotic titles such as "Sahara Sun," "India," "Of Life and Love," "Morocco," "For Want of Her," "Etude Amour," "My Beloved," "On Wings of Angels," "Shadows of the Day," "Breathe With Me," "The Heart Given," "Majorca," "Pacifica," "Hush" and "Visi D'Arte." These selections were chosen from NuSound's previous releases, Erotic Moods 1, Erotic Moods 2, Erotic Moods 3, Holiday Moods 1 and Holiday Moods 2. These tastes will certainly inspire a listen to the originals.
I must admit, the more I listened to this disc, the fonder I grew!
