Music Review and #Giveaway: Truth of Touch by Yanni (Ends 4/22) CLOSED

Friday, April 08, 2011 Posted by Dina N

I have been a fan of Yanni's for a while now. Last year, I got the Yanni Voices CD and it's still one of my top choices to play in the car. I was very excited to receive a copy of his latest CD, Truth of Touch. The album came out in February and was the first instrumental release of Yanni's original compositions in over eight years.

Here is what Yanni says about it: “I work the rhythms in this album... I was having fun with this album and that’s going to become apparent.” I agree - it's obvious that he enjoyed putting this CD together, and this joy carries over to the listener. The music never fails to lighten my mood and make me feel relaxed and at peace with the world. I love the entire album - my top faves are Truth of Touch, Vertigo, Voyage, and Flash of Color (this one makes me dance). Guilty Pleasure and Mist of a Kiss put me in a more of a pensive mood. O Luce Che Brilla Nell'Oscurita has some great opera-style vocals. To cut a long story short, this album is fantastic and worth adding to your music collection.

Here is the complete list of tracks:

1.  Truth of Touch
 2.  Echo of a Dream
 3.  Seasons
 4.  Voyage
 5.  Flash of Color
 6.  Vertigo
 7.  Nine
 8.  Can't Wait
 9.  Guilty Pleasure
 10. O Luce Che Brilla Nell'Oscurita
 11. I'm So
 12. Long Way Home
 13. Yanni & Arturo
 14. Mist of a Kiss
 15. Secret

And if you'd like to hear and see Yanni in concert - you are in luck. On March 22, Yanni launched a 40-date tour of the US. Check out the cities and venues here.
