Like all of Daniel Lentz's music, On the Leopard Altar could not have been composed by anyone else. As an earlier reviewer put it, "[it's] not quite classical, not quite pop, not quite 'New Age'" But it is gorgeously melodic, dizzyingly percussive, and daringly presented.5/5(4).

All words and music by Daniel Lentz (Lentz Music, BMI), except for On the Leopard Altar, which has words by Daniel Lentz and Jessica Lowe, and Requiem, which uses text from the Latin Mass. This recording was released on vinyl by ICON Records in Cold Blue Music thanks Yale Evelev for his kind support of this CD.
On the Leopard Altar is an interesting recording that finds the composer perched midway between his earlier, energetically minimalist style and the increasingly new age-y tendencies of his later work. The sprightly "Is It Love" that opens the album, while immediately reminiscent of Philip Glass circa Einstein on the Beach, has its own quirky charms.
