Blatant attempt to capitalize on flawed psych research

"This CD is an example of the rush to capitalize on a recent psychological publication which found increases in subjects spatial IQ scores after listening to 10 minutes of Mozart's sonata for 2 pianos in D Major (K.448). The choice of tracks on this disk must be based on some adhoc criterion as only one Mozart piece was investigated in the study and this doesn't even appear on this disk! Nevertheless, subsequent studies have failed to replicate this finding. Mozart doesn't make you smarter!"
"Nobody Knows Enough to be a Pessimist"

"I am an elementary school teacher and have played this CD in the background in my classroom for several years. I can't say that it has made my students smarter in math, English, or science, but it has made them smarter in music. And who knows...maybe it does stimulate the development of a certain area of the brain in young children that doesn't get stimulated by other forms of learning. It certainly hasn't made them dumber. The one positive thing I have noted about the affect of this music: my students are much calmer, more relaxed, and much more cooperative when it is playing."
IT doesnot matter if this makes you smarter its music.

"This is just over all great classical music, maybe it makes you smarter maybe it does not, but that makes no difference. This classical music is just excellent all around and deserves to be listened to for its quality more then what it may or may not do for you."
