CD Reviews

This music makes me wildly happy -- it's SO WONDERFUL!
L. Sammons | Seattle WA | 12/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The holiday music on this disk, composed entirely from animal sounds, seems "gimmicky" and to be honest that is what attracted me to it, because I love that stuff! But I've got my headphones on at work, it's December - I'm revving up for the holidays - and I'm struck by the wonderful emotions it's evoking for me! First, the holiday melodies are very witty and creatively composed and are a joy to hum along with - secondly, the true artistry of the production and subtle use of amazingly clear animal voices is astounding! It takes me back to all of my walks through the woods (alas, I've never heard a monkey in the jungle, but I bet it would sound like it is heard here) or hanging out by the lake listening to the birds... I gave this disk 5 stars because I encourage you to try it -- I know you'll love it! I'd like to thank Phil and Bernie for composing this great disk! Happy holidays . (P.S. My favorite track is #6: Shepherd's Rocking Carol... wow!)"
You might think this is too cheesy-christmas stuff but...

"PUT YOUR HEADPHONES ON AND LISTEN TO THIS THING! it's too cool, there are all kinds of animals mixed in there somewhere and making all kinda music. sometimes just animal noise. And the choice of Christmas music is great, some regular oldies with new twists and some lesser known sweet songs.it's great."
Melodic chorus of animal friends

"This collection is amazing - every single sound on it is made by an animal! I am completely awed that someone could take whale songs, sheep bleats, bird trilling, and other assorted sounds and create recognizable Christmas carols. I think this one's great for the kids - there is the occasional dog bark that amuses - but it's oddly soothing at the same time. Definitely different, strangely comforting and very sweet music."
