“Few things are as delightful as when a truly remarkable ambient-electronic album crosses my path, and listening to Keith Richie’s “Ambient Highways” is about as sublime as it gets” – Candice Michelle – Journeyscapesradio.com
The multiple award winning album Ambient Highways represents some of the best music yet by electronic musician Keith Richie.
Starting with Neutrino and its particle like sequences that rise and fall through out the track and then being thrown immediately into a 1940’s noir like state with V Feeling (a homage to the classic Greek composer Vangelis), you won’t feel as if this album is repetitive at all.
The albums title song Ambient Highways comprises lush pads and a soft melody surrounding the listener in a blanket of symphonic electronica.
Additional songs on this release range from a melancholy like feeling to an exuberant state in their overall composition, yet pulls the listener through theses emotions with the albums crescendoing track Keeping The Dream Alive.
If you’re looking for some ambient-style music that is relaxing and easy to listen to, then check out Ambient Highways.
