The RajMan Review
The latest album by Lia Scallon is supposed to channel the crystal keys to the bodies, hearts, and minds of listeners. I don’t know anything about crystals or their healing powers, but I do know that the music on this CD is captivating and soothing and provides a therapeutic experience in itself.

Each of the tracks is named for a particular type of crystal. I don’t know the significance of a specific melody or sound or vocal accompaniment by Scallon to a given crystal. That’s a matter best left to crystal experts and enthusiasts, who no doubt will understand and appreciate what Scallon has offered up here.

However, the important thing underlying all of this is the music, and in this respect Scallon’s undertaking is accessible to all, crystal aficionado or not. The background music is created with keyboards, synthesizers, didgeridoo, and other modern and traditional instruments and stands on its own. Scallon’s hypnotic, otherworldly vocals add an extra, ethereal dimension to the music that both transforms and transports the listener. Also, rather than actual lyrics, Scallon’s vocals are more like sounds and utterances, intonated in a soft-spoken timbre that comforts and reassures, setting the mind at ease.

So even if crystals are not your thing or you know nothing about them, but you’re looking for a relaxing mental getaway and like tranquil instrumental music and exotic vocals, you can’t go wrong by this album.

From MainlyPiano
"Crystal Keys: Songs to Awaken and Heal" is the ninth release from Irish-born new age singer/songwriter Lia Scallon. Singing and chanting in her own “Language of Light,” Scallon tells of the healing energy within each of ten Master Crystals, giving each of these crystals their own track on the album. Scallon says that these songs carry coded Messages of Light from the crystal kingdom which have the power to unlock the doorways to your heart and soul, helping the listener to awaken and heal at the deepest levels. “In ancient times, these Light codes were available in the sacred sound chambers of Egypt and the legendary Crystal Healing Temples of Atlantis and Lemuria, where priests and priestesses used sacred sound to unlock the healing energies, information, and Light held within the crystalline realms.” Scallon’s goal with this recording is to make these crystal Codes of Light available to us again. I have to admit that this is all a bit over my head, but I’ve been enjoying the music nevertheless. Scallon’s voice is strong yet soothing, and her melodies are graceful and often compelling. She is accompanied by an impressive group of musicians that includes David Jones on Alchemy Crystal bowls, kalimba, drone, Indian bells, Tibetan bowls, floor tom, gongs, and Om chimes; Mark Mannock on keyboards and piano; David Hudson on didgeridoo; and Nigel Pegrum on flute and keyboards. The liner notes include an insert that quotes each of the Crystal Masters, telling their stories - a very impressive package.

The first crystal to “speak” is “Pearl,” representing innocence and purification. Ethereal and uncomplicated, it’s a truly refreshing piece that includes a rhyming poem in the middle spoken in Scallon’s mysterious language. “Sapphire” brings truth, peace, and calm, and its song is also very soothing. “Amethyst” represents humility, and Scallon’s voice reaches to the heavens in this one supported by minimal accompaniment from the other musicians. “Clear Quartz” represents light embodied, and this song is hauntingly beautiful. Piano and keyboard washes add color and depth to the almost mournful vocals. “Ruby” is the spiritual warrior, and this piece is strong and passionate. “Diamond,” light body, has a very spiritual song that is accompanied by the ringing of bowls. Very hushed and understated, listeners should be in a very deep state of relaxation as the album comes to a close.

"Crystal Keys" is a very interesting and enlightening musical journey. Check it out!

Review excerpt from Music & Media Focus (www.michaeldiamondmusic.com)
The album’s subtitle – “Songs To Awaken & Heal” goes a long way in describing the intent of its creator. The soul-stirring sound of Lia’s crystal clear voice at times evokes the ethereal ambience of fellow Irish-born recording artist Enya, although with it’s own distinctive quality and sense of purpose. One will notice right away that the chants and lyrics are not in English, nor are they in any other language they might be familiar with. Lia describes her inspired vocalizations as a “Language Of Light.”

Supporting Lia’s vocals are a number of talented musicians with extensive and impressive music industry credentials that collectively include touring or recording with Yanni, Tina Turner, Annie Lennox, Joni Mitchell, British folk-rock group Steeleye Span, and more. Although used subtly and sparingly, instrumentation features keyboards, flute, didgeridoo, Tibetan and crystal bowls, gongs, chimes, and a variety of percussion.

The album is divided into ten tracks, each of which focuses on a different crystal or mineral such as sapphire, amethyst, clear quartz, emerald, ruby, etc. From the powerful, grounded, earth and fire energy of Ruby to the warm meditative glow of Citrine, as well as the more lyrical, Native American-like rhythmic chant of Sapphire, and my favorite, Amethyst, with it’s longer dreamy sounds and harmonic overtones, each song, like the stone it represents, reflects diverse facets. As mentioned earlier, there is a sense of purpose to this music. It is not created for “entertainment” as much as it is intended as a tool for inner attunement and uplifting the spirit. If this is the kind of experience that appeals to you, Crystal Keys may just unlock the doors of perception and provide a glimpse beyond.

REVIEWS NEW AGE

Soberbio trabajo!.
Nos adelantamos al noveno lanzamiento de la afamada cantante, compositora y artista New Age Lia Scallon y os presentamos Crystal Keys, un nuevo CD donde descubrimos un interesante punto de inflexión en las composiciones de Scallon. Al igual que en sus primeros trabajos, los temas son de una duración bastante extensa, pero como diferencia destacable, este se compone de diez piezas y posee una gran carga melódica. Recordamos los primeros temas de Lia como una combinación de dulces monólogos indefinidos y sonidos etéreos; en este último CD, Lia apuesta por instrumentistas que acompañan a su voz más musical (algo realmente fantástico) y que forma parte de los instrumentos que interpretan las nuevas y placenteras melodías; Crystal Keys es la llave de paso hacia nuestro Yo interior. Recurriendo a los nombres de los minerales más conocidos, Scallon ofrece una música diferente para cada uno de ellos, pero siempre siendo fiel a su objetivo; mantener al oyente conectado consigo mismo en un contexto de paz y bienestar gracias a su mística y poderosa voz.

"Pearl" es la obra maestra de Crystal Keys. En esta emocionante composición Lia ha encontrado el punto exacto de sentimiento con su voz y los acordes perfectos en los distintos instrumentos que le acompañan. Uniendo sus inconfundibles y alentadores monólogos con la maravillosa melodía, la cantante no consigue tranquilizar al oyente, más bien lo emociona. Increíble y magistral!. Wow!. Mi preferida de todo el álbum.

Teclados y flauta nativa abren "Sapphire", otra muestra del cambio establecido por Lia en su música. Con aires nativos americanos, Scallon entona una música llena de calma pero convincente, dueña de un bellísimo misterio en donde flauta, teclados y voz encuentran el momento justo para surgir. Me gusta!.

En "Amethyst" se deja por unos minutos la carga de instrumentos para dar fuerza y protagonismo a la propia voz de Lia. Acompañada por algunos sonidos brillantes de teclados muy sutiles y de escasas notas, Scallon entona una melancólica y desgarradora canción sin letra definida. Mágica!.

El digeridoo presenta "Smokey Quartz" una obra en la que la voz de Lia se torna encantadora y tierna. La melodía es acogedora y cálida, capaz de hacer olvidar cualquier preocupación y centra al individuo en un mundo lleno de fantasías. Otra de mis piezas preferidas!.

Aparece un instrumento de cuerdas para abrir "Citrine". Son momentos de regresar a la reflexión y a la meditación gracias a esta hipnotizadora pieza. La penetrante y soporífera voz de Scallon, el rasgueo de cuerdas y el sonido de campanillas atrapan al oyente con fuerza y lo arrastran a una profunda serenidad.

En la composición más extensa del álbum, "Clear Quartz", surge el sonido del piano, un instrumento llamativo que sirve de acompañamiento a Lia junto a diferentes sintetizadores. En esta ocasión, la cantante dobla su propia voz en diferentes tonalidades que van alternándose en la melodía.

Otra de las grandes piezas de Crystal Keys es "Emerald", la pieza más rítmica de todo el álbum, un ritmo amable creado por una guitarra que golpea acordes junto a una flauta que aparece en contadas ocasiones, ambos, sirven de base para Lia, quien canta siguiendo el interesante acompañamiento. Fascinante!.

"Ruby" es misterio y llanto. Una composición rica en instrumentos que se unen para acompañar al apenado canto de Scallon, dejando por unos instantes abatida el alma. Es grandioso el poder de este tema.

"Gold" es la música perfecta para la práctica del Kundalini Yoga; cuencos tibetanos, sonajas y campanillas son la única compañía de la que disfruta la voz de Scallon. Serena y extremadamente simple con respecto a las piezas anteriores, esta consigue dejar al oyente inmerso en un apacible trance.

Con "Diamond" Lia pone fin a Crystal Keys. La pieza que cierra el álbum prescinde por completo de toda la base instrumental antes utilizada y regresa a la misma técnica compositiva de los primeros álbumes; un tenue sonido que acompaña al sedante soliloquio de Lia.


Interesante y muy altamente recomendada es la profunda escucha del último álbum de la magnífica cantante Lia Scallon. Cada nota de Crystal Keys que vuele y llegue a los oídos, logra acariciar los sentidos y seducir el alma. El nuevo enfoque que Scallon hace de su música le abre un campo más amplio de seguidores que aseguro, disfrutarán de lo lindo con este grandioso álbum que ayudará a visionar la vida con optimismo y mucha paz interior. Soberbio trabajo!. Crystal Keys es un álbum muy altamente recomendable!.

Writings by Serge Kozlovsky / http://sergekozlovsky.com
Among the hopeless emptiness and darkness
A voice is heard that awakens spirit

This music is penetrated with myriads of thin vibrations intertwined into a transparent lacy cover. It wraps around you and begins a delicate healing of your suffering soul.

These divine melodies help you to attune your vibrations and to harmonize them with space vibrations. And the enchanting vocals of Lia Scallon play the most important part in the rehabilitation process. You can achieve total relaxation in which the deeper states of consciousness are accessible.

But it would be hardly possible without the unusual musical background. Soft keyboards, meditative Crystal bowls, Indian bells, Tibetan bowls, hypnotic didgeridoo and many other unique instruments create perfect surroundings.

The music of “Crystal Keys” opens the space channel and connects you with it. You feel yourself a single whole with the entire Universe. You are just an integrated part of existence, a piece of God.

I’ve often wondered how spiritual music can be described. The answer is easy and at the same time very difficult. Listen to the “Crystal Keys” and you realize what spiritual music is.
