"I have used this CD many a time to send myself to sleep after a stressful day. The music is very calming and euphoric but the HUGE, MASSIVE noise of crashing waves and the violent tide can kind of keep you wide awake and alert. I reckon that Solitudes should have lowered the volume on the waves a bit. Whether thru speakers or headphones, the tide will always come through loud. If you can ignore this, you'll crash out."
The Pleasure of Falling Asleep Naturally & Drug-Free

"I use to lay in bed for at least one hour trying to stop my mind from racing and thinking of all the things I hadn't done in the day and all the things I had to do the tomorrow. I felt like a mouse forever running around in that little squeeky wheel ~ there was never a peaceful end in sight. I tried all the tricks (reading, warm bath, lavender scents and so on) but there wasn't anything I could find that could put me in a peaceful, calm mode to finally drift off.
Thankfully, to my delight, this is NOT a problem anymore since discovering this Solitude CD. Several of the reviews I read by others, complained about the loud roars of the waves and how they could be distruptive ... this is true for maybe the first 15-25 minutes (the very first time you listen to it) then I found it provided a soothing rhythem for my mind and body to fall into.
I can't say enough GOOD things about this CD ~ I've been using it for about six weeks now ~ I have yet to remain awake through the entire CD ~ which stll amazes me !
I also suggest playing the CD on a player in the room where it can surround your sleeping area and isn't enclosed on your ears, with a set of headphones or some other listening device. I believe this makes a huge difference even though it's only on very low volume ~ just enough so you can hear it.
It's sooo nice to be able to fall asleep again without tossing and turning and battling all the lists I had going in my mind.
It DOES work :)"
Wonderful balance of music & nature to lull you to sleep

"I bought this CD while travelling coast to coast every couple of weeks. It truly synchronizes your breathing, pulse and brainwaves to get to sleep quickly. It was even very effective when sick with the flu. Now my kids use it to relax and fall asleep. I don't think I've heard it all the way through. It's a great escape, especially for insomniacs."
I'd give it 10 stars if I could

"I couldn't sleep...the brain just wouldn't turn off. Maybe a quick nap of an hour or two at most. Try sleeping 3-4 hours a night (light sleep - not the deep sleep you really need) for months at a time. For those of you who suffer as I do, it's no fun. Tossing and turning. Walking and pacing. Trying herbs, hot milk, ANYTHING that will help.I bought this CD by accident. It was for the office, cubicle hell with many hallway meetings. From the sound byte it seemed a good candidate for white noise. Turned out it wasn't because it made me sleepy! That's when I finally read the jacket insert and found out what was happening.YOU NEED TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!! As an earlier reviewer noted, the waves are pretty loud...for good reason. You match your breathing to the waves, you listen to the music and begin to relax. Listen to the first song in repeat mode before going to bed and maybe shortly after getting in bed. Then put the CD on repeat and somehow the different tracks take you through the various sleep brain patterns.What a joy to finally sleep again! If you have problems falling asleep definately give it a try. If you wake up repeatedly during the night it may help. I find that it helped both problems but a friend (who had only the second problem) did not have as much success.I recommend purchasing a pair of small headphones that wrap over your ears rather than playing it over speakers. The quality of the music is better."

"I've been using this cd since March 2004 to help my 2 year old - now 3 year old to sleep. We play it on a loop right through the night, and it works like a charm. On the occasions that he wakes during the night, once his needs are met, he falls right back to sleep. The first few times I went to bed with this cd on, I felt like I was on a fabulous sleep "drug". I was revelling in the sensation of being lulled to sweet sleep by the relaxing music composition and soothing sounds of the ocean. My cd is almost worn out and I'm on-line right now ordering a new one! When I took my son to visit my family in South Africa recently, the first thing I packed in my bag was this cd - both for the plane and to help him sleep in a totally new environment. It was the most valuable item in my bag. I'm so glad I discovered the magic of this cd, as corny as that may sound!"
