New Age has no foul language, nor does it have explicit content or any biased things, such as religion, involved in the making of this music. In short, this might be the purest genre of music out there, if not the best. Make a link to the song "Steps" by Secret Garden, and see what I mean.

"Make a link"? Don't you mean "google/search"?

Not really my style of music. It sounded nice but it's not for me.

Ah, I've got Secret Garden stashed somewhere in the multigenre chaos that is my iPod. Good stuff.

New Age can and often will have some sort of religious theme, usually a message of spiritual journey and enlightenment. The music is a hybrid of classical and folk music, so if you want to get nitpicky, it's really old-age music recycled to appeal to a wider modern audience...

It's criticized a lot for being repetitive, and having little room for development of the genre.

Listen to "The Rap", which, by coincidence, was made by the same group that composed Steps. It sounds like a happy ending tune of sorts.

I like Ali Jihad Racy's "Mystical Legacies" and "Ancient Egypt" albums. (Technically, they're Arabic music, but got filed into the new age category.) He uses traditional Arabic instruments in his work and the "Ancient Egypt" album was composed for the Seattle Tutankhamun exhibit back in the 70s. Careful when ordering them off Amazon though, as it took them eight months just to get ahold of a copy for me, but that was before the downloadable option was introduced. (I love you too, Amazon.)

Some new age musicians are independent labels without much publicity. So doing some research and looking around on your own might net you some treasure that might otherwise go unnoticed. =)

New Age music as in 1960s crystal moonbeam "Age of Aquarius" type stuff?

I find it dull but I can see why some folks dig it.
