CD Reviews

Don't waste your money on this one!
Mom of two | Franklin, Tennessee | 01/15/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I am a mother of a five year old and a three year old and I love Mozart. My five year old has listened to Mozart CD's during her naps since birth, but I used to wish for a specially-compiled Mozart CD designed for sleeping that didn't have any sudden loud passages. I was hoping that this CD was the one I've been looking for, but it was a big disappointment. First of all, it reminds me of classical "elevator music". The lackluster musical performances on this CD lack richness and depth. The whole reason that Mozart and other classical music is supposed to stimulate the brain is due to the intricacies in the music, and this version just doesn't have it! Also, even though it is called a "Sleepy-Time" CD, there are parts in it that wake my son up every time. I had to listen to it through the baby monitor while I slept (we play classical music at night, too, because he is autistic and we figure that any extra brain stimulation is good!)and it bothered me while I tried to sleep. So while I think it is a great idea to play classical music to help kids sleep (it drowns out other noises that might wake them up and is good for them, too!), I would definitely look into other ones. I have had better luck with The Mozart Effect Music for Children, Volume 2-Relax, Daydream, and Draw and the Mozart Effect - Music for Healing. They both seem to be good quality, relaxing music for sleeping."
Buy the real thing - not this CD

"I have a 3-yr-old autistic son who loves classical music. This CD is not real music - it's simulated. The description indicates various artists - there is only one. The only reason it rates 1 star is that it's Mozart. My advice would be to buy a CD with orchestra, violin or piano!"
Oppenheimer reinvents the bomb

"In truth, this recording deserves negative stars. It might be the worst interpretation I've ever heard of Mozart. You will not be doing your baby any favors by playing it for him or her before bedtime. It is difficult to ruin Mozart, but Max Oppenheimer does a good job by plunking it out on synthesizer and performing way under tempo."
