    Though Celestial Celebration seems like a title taken from the Big Book of New Age Buzzwords, the Pure Moods people do a nice job with this collection musically. There's plenty of big-name talent involved, with everyone contributing mellow material. From Charlie Hunter and Norah Jones running through a dusky jazz take on Bryan Ferry's "More Than This" to Rksopp's percussive ping-pong remix of the Kings of Convenience nugget "I Don't Know What I Can Save You From," Celestial Celebration helps make quiet the new loud. Flecks of Latin influence float in on a breeze, offering cuts from Kinky and Pink Martini; elsewhere, Sheila Chandra ("Crescent Silver Scythe") and Enigma ("Voyageur") offer a refined take on chill. The Dirty Vegas car advertisement hit "Days Go By" is reborn here as a spare acoustic ballad, and Sarah Brightman's "What a Wonderful World" ends the album in her overly dramatic yet atmospheric and rousing style. (The crashing percussion track is a nice touch). ~ Johnny Loftus
