You guys know I love tunes that make me want to sweatbut I also love chill tunes for cookingwritingand relaxing. As part of my February “take a daily mental break” goalI have been spending more time listening to music and reading at nightand it’s been great! So when I heard about these new CDsModern MeditationsI was super excited to give them a listen. And the company was kind enough to send me the albums to reviewbecause I had a feeling you guys would dig them!
So the whole idea is that as youngerhipper chicks (like us) might want to bliss out to music…but not want to bliss out with weird music that’s all New Age shit. I meandon’t get me wrongNew Age shit has its time and placebut I like the Modern Meditations “no pan flutesno wind chimes allowed” motto.
I reviewed three albums: Rock ClassicsModern Classicsand The Sounds of the Beatles. I listened to each album last week and I am loving them — they are so chilland great background musicbut when you hear the hookofsay“Clocks” or “Losing My Religion,” you realize how modern it actually is!
I made this little music video so you could hear a sample — this is the Rolling Stones! (This song is a bit slower than the others.)
My favorite album is definitely “Modern Classics,” but that’s just my taste in music. It has songs like “Hallelujah,” “Ray of Light,” and “Come As You Are.” YesI will stretch out to Nirvanathank you very much! Even though I’m not generally into rockthe Rock Classics album is still bad ass. And you can’t go wrong with The Beatles! There is also U2Coldplayand more in the works (Bob MarleyRadioheadand Indie Classicswhich I’m really excited about).
What I liked is that even though all the albums were super chillthey didn’t make me want to fall asleep at my desk. Definitely good for instructors (I’ll be adding these songs to my spinning playlists for the cool-down)but really just good for anyone who wants some background tunes while they are working but gets distracted by words or songs that get stuck in your head (like me).
