Reviewer: Distant Voyageur "Nicholas Computer" (Io)
This is a nice collection of songs with strong Native American sounds fused with jazzy New Age sounds. Being Native American myself this album is paradise to listen to. It is nowhere near as powerful as lets say Robbie Robertsons 'Music For The Native Americans' and 'Contact From The underworld Of Redboy' but this ablum is pleasant to listen to.
The Crane, Answer Mother Earth, Tsali, and To All My Relations are my favorites.
This CD is a hidden gem. Go and check this one out.
Stonecoat "Native Trance" is a remake of "Cheroke Myth", September 26, 1999
Reviewer: Brian A. Kempski (West Seneca, New York USA)
If you like Deep Forest CD's you will like Cheroke Myth. Be careful though, having owned a copy of C. Myth (1997) I was excited to see a "new" Stonecoat CD called "Native Trance" (1999)only to find out when I played it at home that it was the same list of songs just rearranged. There was no indication on the 1999 CD that the songs were previously released. Not a total loss however, I sent Native Trance to a friend.
This is much more "newage" than "world"., June 13, 2000
Reviewer: "amberose" (FL USA)
"Native trance" is similar to but not as intense or dance driven as Sacred Spirits or Spirit Nation. Despite it's name it is not a Native American trance/techno cd like Medicine Drum either.
Although bearing *some* resemblences to Douglas Spotted Eagle this is very contemporary instrumental music with a very newage but not ambient style (e.g. It isn't deep, dreamy or etherial). The thing is, one can't tell right away that it's nessicarily Native American inspired music except from the flutes maybe. Really, it could incoorperate any culture into the music and still sound pretty much the same. It's great backround music as I find it quite easy to tune out since it is very subdued and light. There isn't a whole lot of emotion or "soul" to the music so don't expect it to "move" you much like Spirit Nation would.
Although this album is far from bad or clumsy, there isn't anything about it that really stands out.
