My favorite PMG album right now. .... My Imaginary Day CD got stuck in my 9 yr old car CD player and I’ve been listening to it everyday !! Interesting, I’ve come to appreciate every tune in the album. Especially ’Heat of the Day’ which I blast at high volume. But perhaps it was also the most interesting, intellectually, of PMG albums. So, I Wiki searched the album. This was ’ world fusion’ bringing in many cultural music themes. Here’s Wiki description. ::::: The album leans heavily toward world fusion, drawing upon a variety of global influences. Indonesian styles are particularly pronounced, with Balinese gamelan music appearing in "Imaginary Day" and "Into the Dream". "The Heat of the Day" demonstrates repetitive hints of Iranian folk music. Imaginary Day also showcases the Group’s first (and thus far, only) forays into rock music and drum and bass with "The Roots of Coincidence". In "The Awakening", the album concludes with strongly Gaelic melodies.

Bookmark and Share Naut. ... Now that’s a good one !! ::)). I proudly say I’ve never touched Kenny G or Yanni albums, which are rightly described as smooth pablum for the masses. Back to ID, in the late 90s I was a little lukewarm about the album and it seems to take some intense listening to really appreciate it. Now, it’s my daily fare and I never seem to tire of it.

Bookmark and Share Yo patsfan: ID has been the hardest for me to appreciate over the years, but I did listen to it recently and found a lot to like, for sure. Pat’s synth solo on "The Heat of the Day" is pretty amazing. Hey, at least you didn’t get Yanni or Kenny G stuck in your CD player!
