All Music Guide
The fourth installment in the Sequoia Groove label's Buddha Lounge series continues with its warm, soothing grooves and funky, exotic beats. The emphasis here is on a worldbeat ambience that tiptoes up to the edge of New Age mysticism but avoids committing to it, instead staying firmly in the real world of solid (but not too assertive) dance beats and multicultural vocal traditions. Call it chill-out, or techno-lounge, it all comes down to the same thing, and you're lying if you say it never hits the spot. The tracks that hit the spot particularly nicely this time out are Achillea's "Cape Porcupine", Nasser Kilada's cool and dark "Samah", and the faintly jazzy "In for the Night (Buddha Edit)" by the Moontrane Conductors. Recommended overall.

The Gordon Brothers, David and Steve, deliver another carefully crafted collection of world music grooves, calculated for ideal postcool relaxation with Buddha Lounge, Vol. 4. There are so many different hotel-bar-lounge mixes available, trying to find the right one can be like walking through a crowded Marrakech bazaar at mid-day; a lot of them don't hold their style all the way through, or hold it too much, or make a late-inning switch to up-tempo house music, or, worse, plot through the same track after track. The Gordon brothers are in a class by themselves in this regard; they weave a continually moving and flowing mix that never stops exploring and always stays centered. The album opens gently with the dreamy slide guitar and backward wind chimes of Achillea's "Cape Porcupine." As in many of these tracks, a slow languid groove is gradually built up with layers of instruments and wordless vocals until a sweetly operatic crescendo is reached. TYA's "Why" adds a bit more of a techno vibe, with strong beats and spine-tingling synth phrases and a gorgeous female vocal that soars over it all like the memory of a Celtic princess long forgotten in the Irish trade winds. As the album unfolds, the dreamy "mountain wind blowing slow-motion through your hair as you look down upon the oceans" feel of tracks like Ginkgo Gardens' "One and Twain" mix happily with more world beat, bouncy stuff like Hands Upon Black Earth's "Bhajya Sahita." Buddha Lounge, Vol. 4 manages the never-easy task of constantly evolving while never leaving the couch. Whatever loving, contemplating, or relaxing thing you might be doing with this music, you don't want to be interrupted with the "what the hell is this?" moment that breaks the spell and has you fumbling for the volume knob. Steve and David Gordon clearly understand that. This music is never restless, never seeking, never lost or agitated, yet always moving. It always arrives where it started - in the clear sunshine of the morning of the soul.

Music Design In Review
With the fourth volume of their winning "Buddha-Lounge" series, the Gordon Brothers whip up another enticing blend of chilled world music with a euphoric flair. And like the previous efforts, this one is worth getting excited about; in fact, it's probably the best album in the series yet. Most of the songs on this album are pure bliss. For example, "One and Twain" from Gingko Garden... this song has beautiful atmosphere and great ethereal melody. Another highlight is "Northern Lights" from Stella Maris, a very European sounding track with sensual vocals and spacey synthesizer effects. Great transition work between tracks and a sublime lounge vibe across the board makes this one pop in your player anytime a little chilling is in order. Also featured is TYA, Althea W., David & Steve Gordon, Achillea and more.
