Digital Box Set -- what a straightforward, no-nonsense title! Over the course of 40 tracks spread across four discs, Kitaro sucks listeners into the wondrous world of new age music. Call it the "metaphysics of sound," if you will. D.B.S. is a mix of previously recorded material and brand new compositions. As always, Kitaro is all about windswept soundscapes meticulously sculpted with synthesizers, strings and ghostly woodwinds unique to Japanese culture. This is some truly meditative music.
