Comments & Short Reviews
“I came across this CD many years ago and have returned to it again and again. It moves me in ways which I find hard to describe. The title is an accurate description of the effect of the music. Every time I listen to it I find my spirit literally soars. I use this CD to relieve feelings of sadness and/or grief, and I truly believe it would aid anyone suffering from a significant loss. As a reflexologist and counsellor I use this music with my clients. I think Clifford White must have been communing with the Gods when he produced this album.” – D. Cox, Australia.
“One of the all-time classics of gentle New Age Music…” – Mark Jenkins, Future Age Music Express.
“Clifford’s music is one of the nearest to the work of Vangelis the UK has provided to date – Ascension is a lovely album, featuring synthesized heavenly choirs and soaring strings that are stunningly melodic and spiritually uplifting…” – C & D Compact Disc Services.
“Ascension is Clifford White‘s first album, written before he was 20 years old. The melodies are simple, yet radiant; the synth orchestrations sound like an organs and clarion with the occasional angel choir. “Mr. Elemental” offers a nice touch with its funky bass line. By the end of “Eternal Dusk,” I was hooked into White’s dream world. “Music Box Lullaby” is just that, but with even higher pitches, perhaps meant for fairies’ ears. The album has that certain “something” — the dewy wisdom of innocence, perhaps — that makes it an enduring favorite. Charming.” – Carol Wright, All Music Guide.
“…a slice of New Age music history…” – Vee Van Dam, ‘DNA Door’ magazine.
“A classic New Age that everyone should own, I’m on my 3rd copy , on cd at last after wearing out two tapes ! What more can I say – just one the best ever chillout albums ever made – if you haven’t got it , now’s your chance!” – Andy, UK.
