    SKYS draws from somewhat more of an electroacoustic palette than Danna's earlier SIRENS. The composer still favors a grandiose sound, letting out deep breaths of synth upon which the listener glides. But here he tempers the electronics with cellos, trumpets, and other acoustic wind instruments. Danna draws his inspiration from the majestic, looming skies of his Canadian homeland,
    Whereas Danna's synthesizers manage to capture the sky's yawning grace, a number of the different "Skys" that comprise the disc seem more earthbound. Danna calls SKYS "orchestral romantic minimalism," a phrase indicative of the variety of moods found here. Upon hearing these rich, melancholic arrangements, many would concur. SKYS is easy on the ear, for sure. But the added element of quasi-classical embellishments adds breadth to many tried and true New Age maxims.
