"It's difficult to review the ocean. This CD is a recording of the breaking surf. And that's it, for a full 60 minutes. Once released as a double sided LP, the CD does suffer from a slight editing problem where the sound "breaks" for a few seconds during the recording, but this flaw is barely noticeable. This is a wonderful CD for meditation, relaxation, and sleep. Definitely do not attempt extended "active" listening with this CD, as it does not contain anything but the natural sounds of the surf. It does not contain subliminal messages. It is meant to be played at a low volume as ambient sound. This tranquil recording is especially effective for insomnia. Setting your player on "Repeat" will give you a nightlong loop of sound to sleep by. There are numerous "Environments" recordings, some of which are out of print. I recommend them all, especially "Wood-Masted Sailboat," and any of the several "Rainstorm" recordings."
Perfect for getting to sleep

"This is a wonderful recording, excellent sound quality, only the seashore no music mixed in, I use this for sleep without looping it and I never hear the end of the recording!! It's 60 minutes of seashore waves, be careful not to play it too loud, you'll probably have to adjust the volume lower than you think."

"Normally I don't review environmental discs, but this particular one deserves attention. "Environments 1: The Psychologically Ultimate Seashore" was the album that started the whole series of environmental sounds albums, and I do mean the WHOLE series of them, including the various offshoots. Originally released on LP in the 70's (with it's flipside being the sounds of a bird sanctuary), this album is a genuine recording of a seashore, rolling waves and all, and it plays for a full hour. Put it on "Repeat," and it can go on as long as you want. Is it relaxing? You bet it is. Played at low volume, this album helps me to sleep on many a night when I can't, and it also helps to sooth me and clear my mind. I put on this CD, and I'm instantly calmed. In fact, I'm playing it right now....aah....I can almost smell the seabreeze....Every home, in my opinion, should have a copy of "Environments 1: The Psychologically Ultimate Seashore." It's definitely the Big One in the genre of environmental CD's, and it's the only environmental album you'll ever need to own. Put it on, and relax in your home by the sea."
