Listeners get an introduction
to some Taiwanese "spiritual music" with this
album, titled "Ask Love", by Taiwanese singer
Huang Xi-Ting. It is an interesting amalgamation of
Buddhist chanting and pop music. The first time I heard
this album, it reminded me of New Age music, like Loreena
McKennitt's "The Mystic's Dream", as it also
combined singing and musical instruments played by lamas.
At first, this album stirs up all your melancholic feelings,
and then sweeps your spirit clean like a wave of pure
water. After listening to "Ask Love", a sense
of serenity arises in your heart, your worries disappear
and you feel free from the burdens and stresses of life.
