Looking for the archetypal sound of new age? You’ve found it.

On Spiritual Beings on Human Journey, Anael again provides ethereal vocals, occasionally in French or Hebrew, to give voice to Bradfield's melodic and soaring compositions. (Her voice sounds eerily similar to Enya's and in fact, many of their tracks echo the Celtic fusion sounds of the noted Irish new age thrush.) In other words, this is music for people who enjoy traditional new age sounds typified by the likes of Yanni, Medwynn Goodall and Nicholas Gunn, archetypal examples of music that are synonymous with the new age genre, the edges and definition of which remain clearly and definably intact.
