CD Reviews

Pretty good, but not what I had expected.
Thanos6 | Chapin, SC USA | 05/22/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When I purchased "Caribbean Surf" (billed as "The Relaxing Sounds of Nature") I had expected a CD along the lines of Dan Gibson's excellent "Solitude's" line of work--natural sounds with relaxing music mixed in later.Instead, this CD is 99% sounds of nature with just a hint of music occasionally drifting in and easing its way into your consciousness.You can't blame them for false advertising. The back of the case says, and I quote, "Close Your Eyes...Relax. Listen as the desolate sandy beaches are lapped by the warm inviting waters of the Caribbean Surf. Build a sand castle...Listen to the palm trees swishing in the tropical breeze. Let the stress of modern living dissolve to the soothing sounds of the Caribbean Surf."In other words, they made no claim about music, so it was my fault for expecting it. And it certainly is relaxing to listen to. However, the surf is occasionally just a bit too loud to relax to. Hence, this CD by the Madacy Music Group receives 4 stars."
The Best Surf CD
AstroNerdBoy | Denver, CO | 03/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best surf CD to sleep to and is also a great CD to play on a cold, snowy, winter day! The surf noise stays fairly constant (unlike "Ocean Surf") and the bird sounds are unobtrusive. There are two or three spots where the strains of a steel-drum band come through but again they are unobstrusive. I enjoy sleeping to it as there are no piercing or sudden noises to wake me up. I also enjoy listening to this when it's cold out. I can close my eyes and imagine the warm Caribbean sun while on the beach. I think this is a must have CD!"
A little disappointed

"Like the last reviewer, I carefully inspected the cover and it made no mention of music. I was disappointed to hear any at all. It's true that it's fairly unobtrusive, but I was looking forward to water sounds, wind in trees and perhaps the occasional wildlife sounds, not music.I'll keep looking."
