"I strongly prefer Disc 1 of this 2 CD set, both its Rainforest Suite & Sea Suite being equal favorites. They're suitable for relaxing background music, or falling asleep by. Each piece is about a half hour long. If you don't hear anything at first, wait...the tiny cricket sounds of the Rainforest Suite gradually rise in volume and fall into the background of gentle musical notes. The ocean in the Sea Suite comes up in gradual washings of the shore. Some ways into the piece there are haunting notes reminiscent of whale song.
I've loaned/given these as gifts regularly, and the receivers have been captivated.
Disc 2 I am not so keen on, but know a few people who do like it. I find the sound effects distracting and the sudden change of tone (threatening stormy undertones to outright happy rain/rainbow)annoying."
