Michael Stearns is one of the originators of a genre of music that emerged in the 1970s known as New Age. The sonority and magnitude of the soundscape are such that it was chosen as one of the "10 Super-Sounding CDs or Discs for System calibration" by Harry Pearson, editor, The Absolute Sound. The main theme of The Lost World and the feature track Volcano Eruption are really an ear-opening experience for all audiophiles not to be missed. This album serves as an excellent portrayal of Michael's achievement in creating a magnificent soundscape and sonic wonders of nature.
