What helps to set Trance Planet, a collection of world music and artists, apart from other collections of world music is not that Tom Schnabel, a pioneer of world music radio programming, has compiled a four-star introduction to the new and established world music artists such as Ali Akbar Khan and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The difference is that Schnabel has compiled music with a common musical theme, a similar timbre. Each piece seems to flow together, making listening an uninterrupted musical journey. The 14 pieces by 14 different artists, which also includes Vox and The Tahitian Choir, prove music is our one common language. — MusD, All Music Guide
