Excellent recording - except for crickets

"I purchased the CD hoping this would be what I had been looking for: a CD with ONLY the sound of falling rain. Well, that's "not exactly" what I received. Though the sound quality is exceptional, gradually you will hear more and more crickets toward the end of the CD. On a good sound system, you might even start looking around the house for the crickets as the recording quality is very good. In fact, I had to turn off my sound system more than once to confirm that the cricket sounds were indeed only from the CD. Also, towards the end of the track, you will hear faint bird sounds. If you're looking for a CD that realistically creates the "being there" effect of a forest during a rainstorm, this CD is for you as the sound quality is exceptional. However, if all you want is the sound of falling rain with no crickets/birds/etc. you may want to look elsewhere. Finally, there are no sounds of thunder - only rain falling with the muted background crickets."
A total ambient experience

"Since I was given this album two years, it has easily become my most listened to disc. Not only during those times of the day when you just need to gear down a bit and collect your thoughts, but at night when it's not uncommon for me to put it on when I go to bed and have it recycle all night long. It really helps me to fall asleep and stay asleep all night long. I like to imagine I'm bunked out for the night in the protective cover of my tent and as a gentle rainshower falls outside. The dynamics of the recording allow you to use your imagination for the ambient experience that you want."
Rain with crickets and birds

"As one reviewer said this rain CD has the sounds of crickets and birds towards the end. If you are looking for only the soothing sound of rain with no birds, crickets, thunder or other annoying things, I recommend "Sounds of the Earth: Rain in the Country". The "Rain in the Country" CD is a clear recording of a steady rainshower. It is so relaxing that I bought 3 copies of it just in case they ever stop selling it."
