Best Independent Artist of 1997. "Michael Salerno is a composer whose music is filled with heartfelt honesty. It's power and emotion are guaranteed to lift your spirits and fill you with hope".
-Judy Markworth, Wind and Wire Magazine
The musical concept of “Enter When Ready” was about taking chances in life. Hence, the cover… a door in the middle of a road – symbolic of course but it certainly makes the statement. The music is all-instrumental except for a few vocal phrases near the end to close out the CD. Because there are no other lyrics, the music can take you wherever you want it to take you. It’s really up to your own interpretations based on your own life experiences. So close your eyes and open up your mind. Like life, this music can take you on a journey if you’ll let it.
"On the road of life there are many doors. But there is only one way to find out what\'s on the other side... Enter When Ready".
Very well done!! I love the rich subtle textures. This is one of those albums that sneaks up on you and feels better every time you let it in. A good door to enter!!

This is a definite must have! "Enter When Ready" is music intertwined with a passion for life, for love and one's self. If you have ever been to heights and you find yourself standing and at awe with it... you are ready... this music brings you there.

I really enjoyed this CD. I work in a stressful environment and when I played it, I got comments from most everybody, asking what CD I was playing.
-Joanne, Natick, MA.
Although this has some Yanni overtones it is still unique in it’s own way. I like it! Will definitely add it to my collection.
