The Most Relaxing New Age Music In the Universe has been on the bestseller lists since Kin-Kou Music released it in January 2005, as a part of their Most Relaxing series (which also have opera, classical, jazz piano ect. in the catalogue). The series has sold over 800,000 copies in the U.S. alone, and the new age edition is perhaps the most successful compilation. The latest edition is The Best of the Most Relaxing New Age Music in the Universe from 2012.
The original collection consists of 2 discs with songs by Kitaro, Mari Fujiwara, Hideo Shimazu and others. I like this collection for its focus on more classical sounding new age music. But rest assure, fans of electronic music; there are some ambient synth songs here as well – like the opening track, Kitaro’s classical Message from the Cosmos.
Is this the most relaxing New Age music in the universe? Well, I’ll let you decide. But is a more classical approach to New Age music than we are used to around here.
