Review by Kathy Parsons
Numinous was pianist/composer George Skaroulis’ second release, and is considered to be a classic in the new age/ambient genres. The title refers to the supernatural or divine, and of having a deeply spiritual or mystical effect, and that is certainly an apt description of the music. Introspective, a bit melancholy, and shimmeringly beautiful, Skaroulis creates a musical painting that will touch all but the most jaded of hearts. Skaroulis has been one of my favorite artists since I first heard his Second Nature album a few years ago, so it’s fun to go back and retrace his musical steps. His Greek heritage is apparent in some of the instrumentation and spirit, but the mood is quiet and serene, making this a great album for reading, relaxing, massage, or just letting go of the cares of the day. Despite the calm and soothing sounds, I found this to be a great album to wake up to. Give your ears and soul a treat! Very highly recommended! Numinous is available from evzonemusic.com, amazon.com, and cdbaby.com.
