Album Review - Yanni Truth Of Touch

I was recently given the opportunity to review Yanni's new album, Truth Of Touch. This is Yanni's first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years and is a return to the genre Yanni helped create and advance.

Here's the 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

I enjoyed listening to the whole album, but there is something I really like about #2Echo of a Dream. The melody is so pretty and kind of surreal sounding too.

I'd love to play this album while I'm having dinner but with 3 noisy kids that's kind of hard to do at this time! However this is the kind of music I like to have playing in the background when I have some time to kick back with a book. I'll definitely be adding Yanni's Truth Of Touch to my playlist.

If you want to see Yanni in person, on March 22 Yanni launched a 40-date tour of the U.S. The tour will take him through theaters in major cities across the U.S. including Radio City Music Hall in New York City and the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
