Album Description

This authentic, digital recording of the ocean offers the most realistic reproduction of surf imaginable. Treated to the gentle sound of waves lapping onto rocks and sweeping across sandy beaches, the listener can escape to a solitary retreat on a remote shoreline. Ocean Surf is timeless and sublime, and is guaranteed to provide a therapeutic, calming effect when played quietly. Or, at a higher volume, the program can provide an invigorating and exciting marine experience.(Only the sound of the surf is featured here. There is no wildlife or musical accompaniment.) ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great surf.
This is a great ocean surf cd. It has great sounds all the way through and it's very long playing, too. It will definitely sooth and relax you. It doesn't bore *me*. Another great thing about this cd is that the sounds are quiet and NEVER LOUD OR VIOLENT AT ALL, which makes a great relaxation cd. I hope it won't bore you, either. If you like the sound of the quiet surf and don't mind nothing else, no music or anything, I think and hope you'll like this cd. I, personally, would reccomend you to go for it! It's a great relaxation cd for anybody.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Ocean
Great nature albums are so acoustically balanced that they don't need music, and this is one of those albums. It's not busy with the sounds of other animals, or of anything else for that matter, just the sound of the surf. The beach where this was recorded must have had a very gentle ocean, as the waves don't seem to crash as much as they roll. Sometimes the sound of trickling water can be heard, as the wave slowly washes away. There are no sudden changes in volume or dynamics throughout the album making it perfect to put on repeat and fall asleep to.

5-0 out of 5 stars pure perfection!
I love tranquil "white noise" and the thunderstorms are great. But I really enjoy this. It's straight rolling gentle surf. The water lapping on the shores, the rising and falling off the water. Great for relaxing, super mood-setter for writers.

There is music overlaid over this just straight surf...puts me in mind of moonlight stroll on white beaches in the Hebrides.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Way to Unwind
I got this CD almost 2 years ago to help during a time where I was experiencing a lot of anxiety. That problem passed in a couple of months, but I still listen to it every day. Not only is it a terrific meditation to have on in the background of your home, but I often listen to it with headphones on while I read. It is not distracting to my reading and I find the novel I'm reading is enhanced as it allows me to block out atmospheric sounds in the house(I listen to it with noise cancelling headphones on sometimes and I swear if I close my eyes it seems like I'm at the ocean). It is a terrific recording of just peaceful ocean surf and I would suggest it to anyone for realxation, stress relief, or even if you just love the ocean.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ocean Surf Solitudes Dan Gibson
This sounds like a ocean surf you would hear in the morning with lapping waves.There is no seagulls in this just the breathtaking sound of the ocean.This is the only ocean cd solitudes has that doesn't have seagulls.This is a good cd to wake up by as the waves are so soothing.You can also put it on before you go to bed at night.Also there's no music in this. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Ocean in your landlocked bedroom
I am a big fan of environmental sounds for relaxation. I often put the cd player on a timer for going to sleep if I am stressed, or use it for coaxing myself back to sleep if I wake with insomnia . The sad truth is that nearly my entire life, I've had trouble staying asleep the entire night. There is no time of night more USELESS than three am when you can't do anything that would wake up the rest of the house or else you really HAVE to sleep for a busy morning to come. Sometimes I get up and write, but recently, I've started playing environmental sounds to get to sleep and stay asleep. It really works for me.

The problem with many of the ocean recordings I've heard is that they are either too crashingly loud, or have a fake sound, or the repeat is too short, all of which disturb you from the illusion of lying on a beach, dozing off. The quality of this recording is excellent. I can also say that this recording is fantastic when stuck on a long flight back from the West Coast. Just put on the headphones, and drop off for needed sleep on the red-eye. Ahhh.

5-0 out of 5 stars East Coast Ocean Dreams
The peaceful rhythm of the waves make me feel like I'm camped right on the beach at night. Enough variety to sound like the real thing, but no fancy crescendos to shake you up. I play this a lot to go to sleep or relax after work, and just let the fantasy take over. With this CD I can close my eyes and be on my favorite beach in South Carolina. Great buy for the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rhythms of the Earth
I couldn't recommend this CD more highly. It's almost as good as lying out on the beach... your eyes closed... listening to the waves.

There may be other recordings every bit as good but there's none better. The recording artist used good equipment and placed the microphones just right on a wonderful beach where the waves break and roar and hiss and run up on the sand. You can hear the small pebbles click and tumble as the waves ebb and draw back.

I bought this CD hoping it would help me get back to sleep at 3:00 in the morning. It does that and more. I play it when I'm relaxing in the living room. I play it when I'm reading, when I'm talking with my sweetie on the telephone. It's like fire. Something in us needs it... those sounds... those rhythms of the earth.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great live recording!
It actually says on the CD sleeve that this is a real recording. I went to school for audio recording and find this to be a wonderful and relaxing recording of the ocean. The surf is a little strong at first, but appropriately gets softer as the CD progresses. I was not at all distracted by any 'static' (it must be noted, however, that when recording audio at the beach you sometimes get a staticy noise from wind--even with a filter). I highly recommend this CD which I currently use during self-hypnosis and eventually childbirth.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very soothing

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth 4 Starts But I Gave It 5 Because Of Price!
First let me say that this is a GREAT buy! You get 5 different nature albums in one collection at a decent price.. My only complaint is the ocean track.. It sounds more like static than actual ocean waves. I would have rated this at 4 stars because of this cd but for the price I gave it 5. For a more realistic ocean track I would strongly suggest that you pick up "Peaceful Ocean Surf" by Nature's Music..

The other cds in this collection are great! Pick one up and take a listen! You won't be disappointed!

5-0 out of 5 stars The bargain of the century, part 2
This is the second of three box sets of five discs each from the "Echoes of Nature" series. These discs contain all natural sounds and no musical accompaniment. The titles in the box are "American Wilds," "Ocean Waves," "Morning Songbirds," "Thunderstorm," and "Frog Chorus." All are well produced, as one would expect from this sries, but I find "Thunderstorm" especially wonderful because, unlike some other thunderstorm recordings, this one includes not just just the storm sounds but also the sounds of the local wildlife, just as you might hear them before and after the rain.

Run a search on any of the individual CD titles for more reviews of the individual discs; most amazon.com readers are as pleased with these CDs as I am .

Consumer note: I don't know what the person who wrote the December 17, 2000 review is talking about. Perhaps he/she received a mislabeled box with the wrong CDs inside. I own this box and, like the previous reviewers, can attest to the fact that there is NO music on it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great value!
Great deal, great CDs - how can you lose? =)

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Buy!

5-0 out of 5 stars I thought this CD was wonderfull
This cd had the most wonderful, relaxing sounds. My favorite was track 2 (thunder and rain). I would recommend this CD to anyone. One would love the soothing sounds of the rain.

4-0 out of 5 stars I only wish it were longer!
If you're looking for plain thunderstorm sounds, look no further. This is a very well-done recording of what sounds like a genuine storm. (Trust me, I live by Seattle - I know rain. ;) The volume is very good - it is constant throughout the CD, and even the loudest thunderclaps aren't too overpowering. The thunder isn't constant throughout the CD, but the sound of falling rain is quite soothing. My only real complaint is that it should be longer! =)

2-0 out of 5 stars This is NOT a cd of thunderstorms but showers
This CD isn't bad, just not of thunderstorms. It is a cd of rainshowers with some thunder. The constant rain sounds more like static, like when your cable goes out. I was disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soothing sounds of a storm
An absoultely fabulous recording. I listened to this every night for years to help me sleep after a hectic day at the office, now I use it to put the baby down if she's a being fractious. There is no sound that beats the heavy drenching rain with gentle rolls of thunder that consitute the middle (and majority) of the CD. Even the budgie loves the beginning and end with various bird calls - now there is one for the whole family!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good enough for a Massage
This CD begins with a nice, not overwhelming, birdsong. Then the CD enters a few tumbles of thunder, not realy a clap, but a strong rumble and several rolling rumbles. Then it goes into a pretty long rain shower, then rumbles a little more before it tapers off into the chorus of frogs. It has been intrestingly popular in my massage work. (I am a Massage Therapist who works in a Chiropractor's office.). I have a little boom-box that I use and the rain comes across more like static but the white-noise it creates, appropriately drowns out the office environment. I warn my clients that there will be thunder that occurs and once warned they realy compliment how they enjoyed the rain.The massage room stays open when not being used. I usualy leave the storm cd playing, people always ask where they can buy the CD. Anyway - that is what I thought about it. It is wonderful! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars beautiful storm!
I have several thunderstorm CDs. I love storms. There is nothing more soothing, more exhilarating. To listen to rain on a tin roof or up in the hayloft, hear the thunder roll was something I adored. I could never grow tired of it. Some CD just don't capture the true sound. This one does.

You hear rain on pavement, rising and falling. Sometimes is a nice soft pattern, other times near deafening downpour. The tree frogs chirping. Then lightning strikes and the thunder comes. Sometimes close, sometimes in the distance.

Just like opening the windows and listening to a good storm. Very relaxing.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites!
I've been looking for a high quality nature CD without music, they're hard to find. If you've never heard a CD by Dan Gibson, you've got to try this one. The thunderstorm starts from a distance and moves closer. Then when the storm seems to fade, you hear wildlfe. It's very realistic. No music. The sound needs to be turned lower or the thunder can be overwhelming. Read the other reviews, this is a good purchase!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thunderstorm In The Wilderness-Solitudes Dan Gibson
This is one of the best thunderstorm cd's there is and it doesn't have music just nature sounds.Thunderstorm in the wilderness is basically a thunderstorm over a lake with all kinds of wild life.The thunder starts off distant but as it gets closer rain starts falling in the lake which is peaceful water hitting water.There are also some streams on this cd and you can hear Dan Gibson peddling his canew thru the lake.The wildlife consist of toads,frogs,birds,loons and owls.The owls sounds really errie.There are actually 2 storms on this cd.The first one eventually stops and you just hear the wildlife but than just when you think it's over it you hear distant thunder which gets louder again.Like some of the other viewers said don't turn the sound up too loud because the thunder gets loud in some parts of the cd.It's like the lightning hits something close by and it's loud enough to wake you up.Dan Gibson risked his life to get out on a lake during a thunderstorm and record this.He could have been hit by lightning but he wasn't and he put this great recording on a great sounding cd.The sound quality is awesome.Some other reviews said this wasn't real but it was.He really recorded this on a lake during a storm.I'm guessing his equipment was covered up with something to protect it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Thunderstorm CD I've heard
This is definitely the best Thunderstorm CD I've heard. It's relaxing and the sound quality is amazing. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because I wish there was MORE of it! A few hours would have been nice, or two alternate storms would have also been nice. Other than that, incredibly relaxing CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars Now I know why Grandpa liked that lake so much...
"Thunderstorm" reminds me of spending the summers on grandpa's lake up in Minnesota, sitting on his back porch on a humid night watching the lighting off in the distance. There's a nice variety of sounds in this CD; they change gradually like they do in a real storm, and they do it without sounding artificial. There are some really nice patches of about five minutes or so with frogs and soft crickets, and the loons are well off in the distance -- which is good, because loons can be pretty obnoxious. I do find that I need to adjust the sound levels on my stereo whenever I play this CD because the thunder at the beginning can be a little too loud. Also, I wish there were more crickets. Other than that, I don't have any complaints, and it really is worth the slightly higher price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Serenity upon waking OR going to sleep!
If you love the sound of birds, this is IT! Happy, serene, relaxing, but it won't put you to back to sleep in the morning! As a bonus, it's fun to watch my two cats hunting around the room for the birds they hear! No music, which makes this exactly what I was looking for.

3-0 out of 5 stars Uneven in places
I bought this CD as background for meditation. I have many positive things to say about it. The birdsong and water sounds are relaxing. Because there are discreet timed tracks, it gives you the option to select a track for the time you want to meditate, and then you know when to come out as the track ends.

However, the sound quality is uneven, and as a result is not natural sounding. For instance, the first track opens with pounding surf and no birds. Then the surf sound fades to nothing and the bird song is brought up. So it sounds very managed instead of being natural.

Also, the "ocean birds" sound pretty strange to me. Not what I am used to. Maybe pacific ocean birds sound different to the Atlantic ones I am used to , but I doubt it.

One of the tracks has a waterfall that sounds a bit bathwater-ish and the rainfall sounds a bit like static hiss at the beginning.

But despite the mixed quality it is a relaxing set of recordings. And it's hard to go wrong at this price.

5-0 out of 5 stars No Ducks Here.....
What can I say,....Very nice sound quality, very consistent volume, and very relaxing (assuming your don't have ornithophobia). If you are just looking for sounds of birds then this is the CD to buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Songbirds
WONDERFUL cd! Bought previous birdsong cds and they had musical backgrounds; this one is natural. Not such soft sounds that you turn the volume all the way up and then suddenly get hit with 100 decibels when the music strikes! It's perfect for use in my alarm clock; nice waking up on those cold January mornings to birdsong.

5-0 out of 5 stars my parakeet loves this cd!
I own a very tame parakeet, but i'm at work six to eight hours a day, leaving my little bird all by himself. I now play this cd for him, and i cant even hear it over his happy chirping. When he is quiet enough for me to listen, i find it the most soothing of all the "bird cds" I own. I highly reccomend this cd for anyone with a lonely bird, or anyone who wants a nice, relaxing, soothing cd. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad but the one by Echoes of Nature is better
This 60 minutes rainsound cd, considering its very low price, is a great buy but it is definitely not the best in its kind.

The recording starts smoothly with incipient rain mingled with a faint insect drone in the background. Then peals of thunder are heard far off and the crackling sound of falling droplets becomes a rustle that now comes nearer the listener,now recedes in the distance. Occasional birdcalls enhance (or mar according to your personal outlook) this Wild World Symphony, accompanied by thunder explosions at regular intervals.

The whole diluvian episode would have been uncannily relaxing and refreshingly primitive but for the botched end, when the ugly, noisy world of human beings reasserts itself. The hum of traffic noise( or was it some ill-advised airplane?)suddenly breaks the spell. To drown it out, the "artists" have a peal of thunder resound mightily but too late: you immediately grasp that it is a gross apocryphal interpolation.

Scarcely have you recovered from the shock of civilization and managed to recreate the illusion of listening to the rain from inside a moss-carpeted grotto hidden on the flank of Mount Kilimandjaro when a metallic sound strikes your ear: the finishing rain is now falling on a misplaced bucket or drain pipe...

Yeah, what did you expect for less than three bucks?!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best: Thundering Rainstorm without Music
This doesn't contain music enhancement which is a PLUS (in my opinion) for those who prefer non-music enhanced nature sounds.

A fast summary would have to be: a great price, NOT enhanced with music (a definite PLUS for those preferring nature sounds only), 60 minutes and 13 seconds long, authentic to the point where I have to grudgingly admit this one now takes first place in my Thundering Rainstorm collection.

I was surprised to read the review where the sounds of a bird are mentioned, because I had listend to the CD over and over yet had not noticed it! I listened again and found yes, the reviewer is correct and normally that noise being present in a Thunderstorm recording would be annoying to me but the way it's done in this CD I don't find it annoying, in fact I hadn't noticed it. Guess it all depends on the individual reaction.

Longer Summary: If you're looking for a Thundering Rainstorm that happens to be primarily heavy rain interspersed with a perfect balance of ranges of rain (just like a good thunderstorm) plus rolling and heavy thunder also realistically balanced,without music enhancement, you cannot go wrong with selecting this CD. I noticed it at the site a while ago but kept thinking "you get what you pay for" (extremely reasonable price), then, based on other reviews, decided to try it and I'm so glad to have purchased this CD. The rain sounds ebb and flow from heavy to light, from sprinkling to pouring, even with authentic touches such as the rain tapering off so accurately you find yourself listening to that slight "tapping" raindrops make on the raingutters as they slide down them AND, again, it's perfectly balanced because the "tapping" is not overdone, either. It's so diffcult to find thundering rainstorms without musical enhancement that are done well, this is a gem. Sometimes, once in awhile, a product comes along that offers far more than the price would generally indicate. A great product at an outstanding value. The best recording I have ever heard of a progressive thundering rainstorm. I'm considering purchasing another one just because of the great productions values combined with the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best Thunder/Rainstorms with no music
I have about 5 CD thunder and rain only - no music - and I love this one best of all. I am a storm freak. There is nothing more soothing, more refreshing. To listen to rain on a tin roof or up in the hayloft, hear the thunder roll was something I adored. I could never grow tired of it. Some CD just don't capture the true sound. This one does. Thunderstorm in the Wilderness is very good, but this one is so much more real.

You hear rain on pavement, rising and falling. Sometimes is a nice soft pattern, other times near deafening downpour. The tree frogs chirping. Then lightning strikes and the thunder comes. Sometimes close, sometimes in the distance.

Just like opening the windows and listening to a good storm. So if you cannot spend the day lazying in the hayloft, this is the next best thing!

2-0 out of 5 stars Nice Rainstorm, But Bird Is Too Noisy!
I should have taken the advice of the other reviews. The thunder and rain sounds great, but it is ruined by that annoying little bird! Although I enjoy the sounds of birds, the particular bird here is obnoxious. It repeats the same high pitch sound over and over again and it's very distracting. I would be willing to overlook, if it was only 3 or 5 minutes, but it chirps for the entire 60 minutes! I'm going to search for another CD.

4-0 out of 5 stars Let it rain, let it pour!
Why oh why would anyone want a recording of a thunderstorm, no music background, just rain slapping vigorously then dying down, thunder rumbling on? If you are stuck on a long long plane flight (say, to the Far East) and you are wedged uncomfortably into coach, putting this on to block out the sounds of the plane and the passengers can lull you to sleep and trick your brain into thinking it's somewhere else. I have slept many hours on planes to this album, and every hour of sleep on a ten-hour or longer flight is a Godsend. ... Read more

It used to take me 30-45 minutes to fall asleep at night, even with soft music playing on the radio next to my bed. Now I pop this in the CD and I am sound asleep in less than 5, and I feel more rested in the morning, too. I think it puts me in a deepr level of sleep than I had been able to attain on my own or with just music in the background.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soothing and relaxing.
This CD has pure sounds of the ocean and nothing else. There is no music on it, and there are no other interruptions.

It's great for helping to relieve a headache, and is a wonderful tool for anyone who has trouble sleeping. This tape will help you drift off to sleep in no time!

5-0 out of 5 stars So relaxing, I've never heard the last few songs!
I say the above because I use this CD to fall asleep to...and I have yet to hear the last few songs, because I'm always fast asleep before the CD is over! There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of soft ocean waves and the tinkling of piano keys. Steve Halpern has done an excellent job with this CD. It is so relaxing that I've ordered it for my cousin, who has brain cancer and has trouble sleeping because of treatment. I am sure this CD will help calm her, and you.

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars 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.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Ocean in My House
Natural Sleep Inducement is not an ordinary cd. The music contained in the background with the ocean waves is truly relaxing. Although the waves get a bit noisy at times, it helps me go to sleep. Ignoring the loud waves will help induce sleep quickly. I shared this with many people who have troubles sleeping at night. When I listen to this cd, I find myself falling asleep in about 10 minutes. For insomniacs, this will really help.

5-0 out of 5 stars I've never heard the end of it..
I bought this at the baby store I work at. I am a chronic insomniac and could never get to sleep in under two hours. With this one I'm out in twenty minutes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Also a great baby CD
We use this CD every night to put out daughter (now 15 months) to sleep. It really helps her relax and I don't know what we would do without it. Unlike some "new age" CD's that can have fast parts or annoyingly loud parts, this one is really relaxing the whole way through and very slowly fades out at the end.

Also, the constant wave sounds make a little bit of a white noise background and help drown out other sounds.

Great CD, lives up to its title. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Brids and Music Come Together
The sound of chirping birds, combined with relaxing music; it can't be anymore relaxing. It is just the thing when relaxing, sleeping, or just going through the day. Close your eyes and imagine a whole different time and place; it will help relax you.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Gem
The Solitudes series of music combined with natural sounds is one of the best of its type around. This particular CD, which incorporates the sounds of songbirds, is a real gem. It doesn't sound like elevator music! It's well-written, beautiful music, played by real musicians on real, not synthesized, instruments. If you are stressed out, anxious, tense, or just want to unwind and take a vacation from the daily grind, this music will transport you to an idyllic, peaceful, tranquil place. This is healing music at its best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellence!
I love this Cd... I want to make sure you know that this is not a new age CD... But it's still very relaxing.

I agree whole heartedly with Sue... John Herberman is one of the best composers!

With wood flutes, bass flutes, and regular flutes, clarinets, guitars, oboes, english horns, and Harmonicas, this is one great CD. The Guitars and Harmonicas only apear in track 5.

Some of the birds featured in the CD include...

Wood Thrush
Rose breasted Grosbeak
White Throated Sparrow
Red bellied Woodpecer
Cardinal

I defenintly recomend buying this CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Solitudes Winner
I have a large collection of Solitudes CD's, and this is one of my favorites. Herberman is, to my mind, the best of the Solitudes composers. (Hennie Bekker is my least favorite.) The bird song is a charming addition to a wide variety of instrumental music, all of which is suitable for relaxation. No heavy rhythms or distracting percussion. I use these CD's for relaxing, active listening, meditation, and sheer enjoyment.

Excellent for home, work or walking. I wore out the first one and ordered another. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Repetitious recording
I had great hopes for this CD, given that it claimed to present over an hour of continuous rain recording without additional sounds. Unfortunately, for the discerning ear, it is clear the company has recorded only about 60 seconds worth of rainfall, then repeats this same track continuously throughout the CD (staggering the track occasionally). Perhaps this won't matter to some, but I was disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Rain in a CD
At the end of the day, when you come home from school or work, one can't say "I feel great." Rather than great, we are stressed and tired. The sounds of falling rain is evermore relaxing that this CD captures it it almost perfectly. I too, am always stressed at the end of a work day and have relaxed to the sound of falling rain; and it does work. It would also be helpful to listen to while sleeping. With quiet, natural sounds, it will have a soporific effect on its listeners and relax you.

2-0 out of 5 stars Lovely Rain
I have always loved the sound of rain. This CD has captured that sound perfectly--with no other sounds or music to distract.
The rain itself has different sounds--when the wind blows a sheet of rain, when the rain falls in the puddle it has created, when it rains very hard, when the rain is lighter. It's a lovely CD to fall asleep to.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad but play it in the other room to muffle the sharpnes
I am writing this listening to the CD. I am a Washingtonian, and we know rain. You may ask yourself why would a Washingtonian buy a rain CD, well being stationed in a fairly dry place for the last 2 years, I am in need of a little bit of home for sanity's sake.

The rain on the CD sounds like a fairly hard rain (about a 7), with big drops hitting, and/or run off hitting a hard surface, and standing water, in the area. The rainstorm has waves to it, so you will get harder and lighter sounds of the rain.

It is in stereo, without music, voices, or those irritating birds.

It reminds me of sitting on my porch at my grandfather's or at camp, during a heavy rainfall waiting to go out and play. An East Coast small town rain, it sounds hard without that soft Country sound to it.

To me this is not a relaxing type of rain that makes you want to snuggle up to your wife or girl friend. After a bit you feel like looking out the window to see how hard it is raining, then to see if the water might be rising. Adjusting the sound volume does help but it just makes the rain sound quieter along with those irritating drops hitting standing water/road. The day I received the CD I played it on the boom box in the bedroom. Playing the rain fairly softly. When my wife walked in she thought we had burst a water pipe. To make it sound better I found that adjusting the volume and sitting in another room makes it more muffled and less in your face (i.e. overbearing).

For a sound sample, open up your washing machine lid when it is filling up and you will get the same type of overbearing water sound but without the rain.

5-0 out of 5 stars So relaxing!
I often listen to this CD right before bed, because it helps me unwind after a hard day, and is great at helping me get to sleep. This CD is pure rain and nothing else. There is no music and, more importantly, no thunder. It's very relaxing to listen to, and is a great stress reliever. I highly recommend it! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars What is this?? definately NOT "natural sounds"!!
That was supposed to be sounds of nature?? I assure all you people who don't get outside much that that's NOT the way it sounds! Some of the sample clips sound like someone shot a computer and recorded the noise it made with clips of bird songs recorded over it. (that and the water sounds like someone recorded the water going down a toilet) Awful, awful. I don't think the people who made these "natural sounds" have ever been outdoors, much less to a rainforest!! If you are looking for CONVINCING nature sounds I recommend you look some where else!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Collection of Nature Sounds
I was looking for some nice background nature sounds to have playing while I work throughout the day. This collection hits the spot. Great sounds, great variety, great price!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Deal!
I work a full time job during the day and I go to school at night. I am a very busy person and I get a lot of headaches. This is the perfect sound collection to drown out all of the construction and lawn mower sounds during those short periods of time when I get to lay down and relax. I thought about purchasing an electronic sound maker but the selections are not as good and they run between $... and $... This was a great deal! I highly recommend it!

3-0 out of 5 stars More fun, but more distracting, than the first
I've owned this and the first "Echoes of Nature" boxed set for almost 10 years now, primarily as "white noise" to drown out distractions. This second boxed set is a lot more fun than the first, especially if you've never been to the jungle -- pardon the pun, but listening to monkey calls is a real hoot. Unfortunately, that reduces their value as white noise. "Wilderness River" is still great for that purpose, almost as good as "Ocean Waves" from the first set.

The other bummer is that the 5th CD is redundant if you already own the first set. But, at this price, you still can't go wrong -- just give it to someone as a gift!

1-0 out of 5 stars Nope

5-0 out of 5 stars Pulses With Life
I listen to this CD when I'm getting ready for work in the morning. The pulsing drums, nature's sounds, soaring flute transport one to a more elemental world. As mentioned in other reviews, one never expects drumming to be so relaxing but you will find your body, breath and heart moving to the beat of this wonderful music.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sacred Spirit Drums
My husband is First Nation and has played on traditional Pow Wow drums. The music on this CD seems very contrived. I think it is better to get real First Nation drum music rather than to turn it into this unrecognizable, synthesized and distorted electronic sound. It is being "passed off" as Native. To me it it is not Native. It sounded, well, sorry, but, it sounded tacky. I don't know if Mr. Gordon is First Nation. Some of it even seems to be somewhat African, which would be appropriate if it where meant to be African in nature. But, all in all, it's far to "Hollywood" for me. And we all know how "Hollywood" has mis-informed the world about our First Nation's history. But, I guess the bottom line for the producers of this type of CD is - this stuff sells.
The drum is the heartbeat of Mother Earth. Her heart is not heard with this rendition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great piece of work.
Nothing shy of great. Great music for the home or car.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Disc
I began studying Native American history and I decided to buy some of their music. I started with Sacred Spirit Drums and the disc from beginning to end is simply excellent.

The drums and the flutes perfectly balance one another. This disc is for all cultures. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sets the Spirit Soaring
I love this disc ! I use it for so many different things; meditation, bodywork, healing, sacred dance, ritual or just to relax. It really tocuhes the source of my being. David and Steve Gordon are true sonic masters, blending sounds of nature seamlessly with their incredible brand of native influenced music. I cannot speak highly enough about this CD. An incredible experience that shouldn't be missed. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Thurderstorm [Nature]
This is the best Thunderstorm tape I have ever heard. I ordered two; this one, and Echoes of Nature Vol. 4, and there is no comparison. First of all, there are no birds chirping, just a great real thunderstorm. No fake rain sound either. The thunder is real, and the sound quality is excellent!
Living in California we don't get the thunder storms like I'm used to from the midwest, so I was really looking for something "real."

All thunderstorm lover's get this tape!

5-0 out of 5 stars The best non-music thunderstorm CD I could find
I tried out many thunderstorm CD's and this one is the best. It also doesn't have background music which I consider a big plus.

The people who wrote negative reviews didn't seem to really want a thunderstorm CD in the first place. For those of us transplants who now live in California where there are no electrical storms, this CD evokes relaxing memories of childhood stormy nights in the midwestern United States.

1-0 out of 5 stars Like Indiana in the summer (okay, not really)
Why do I own a thunderstorm CD? I don't know. I guess I thought it would be something different, something ambient and *natural.* This disc has one long, poorly-recorded thunderstorm, followed by 23 lighting strikes. None of it is worth buying or hearing.

5-0 out of 5 stars THUNDERSTORM ON REQUEST
The sounds of thunder building up in the distance and the thunder as the storm arrives are very realistic. I really enjoy this CD, I turn a fan on and with the speakers right next to the bed it makes it feel if a storm has just rolled over the house and everything is cooling down. There are about 4 thunder claps that are really loud, well actually only two will wake me up (I suppose I could turn the volumn down), but if I program my unit to play thunderstorm right before the alarm I wake up cheerful and relaxed. This CD is for anyone who really loves good natural thunderstorms especially during a drought or a really hot summer.

1-0 out of 5 stars I'M GOING TO ASK FOR A REPLACEMENT...
When I purchased this Thunderstorm CD, one prior review was available and the customer sounded quite satisfied. Now, the review available to me was from 2000, so perhaps what we are experiencing is due to the same CD BUT from possibly a different production sequence. So, upon opening and playing this product it came as a dismal surprise to discover very discordant levels of noise: on the CD we received are stretches of time where no sound whatsoever is detected and so we would turn up the volume and at least twice almost keeled over from the suddenly overly loud thunderclap sounds that would decide to peale out at the exact moment we turned up the volume -- this is the most we have ever paid for a Thunderstorm CD and yet it is the worst so far of any we have purchased. I will be asking for a replacement just on the odd chance this one is defective. Will report back on sound values of replacement CD. One note: it is not music enhanced (a plus for us) so if you are looking for music this is not the one for you to select. Oh well, hoping for better listening...soon. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Thunder By The Sea
When I found this in a bookstore I had to buy it and try it out and I'm very satisfied.It's what it says it is a thunderstorm over the ocean.The thunder is easily heard over the surf.The waves don't pound like they do in ultimate seashore but they still get choppy from time to time.I couldn't hear no rain falling over the ocean though maybe I didn't listen enough.This recording is just nature sounds no music is included.If you like recordings with thunderstorms and ocean waves at the same time I also recommend seascapes from the solitudes series.The waves in seascapes start pounding hard when it starts thundering a true marine experiance.Also the same company that put out thunder by the sea also has a cd of Niagara Falls.If you can find it I highley recommend it.It features the roar of niagara.

5-0 out of 5 stars SURF AND THUNDER
Thunder by the Sea was the first nature CD I purchased and it has been played almost every night for seven months. It begins with the distant roll of thunder claps over the surf and for nearly an hour it improves. One hears surf, thunder, rain and not one item is out of harmony. In two or three places a sea gull is heard but it doesn't distract one bit from the soothing atmosphere. In the dry hot summer just add a small fan to the room and instant cooling storm. This CD has Not been "enhanced" with music so you can enjoy Mother Nature in all her glory without a band jolting you awake. The CD includes thunder and surf for a small price, well worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars God is the greatest composer
It is a measure of my disenchantment with contemporary music that CD's like these about all I currently listen to. And this is one of the best I've ever heard. The sound is clearer than most and the combination of waves and thunder is wonderfully relaxing. It doesn't beat a live performance(you can't top God's light shows either), but if you love a good thunderstorm, buy this. You can't beat the price. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't give up!!!
This is a wonderful all-purpose CD! When I first put it on,it sounded TERRIBLE! The 'rain' sounded like popcorn popping;the birdcalls sounded like kids screaming. I was tempted to pop it out then and there. But I gave it about 5 minutes,and it improved! A relaxing rain rhythm began and more birds started singing. I sat and listened to the entire CD!
There are 3 tracks: Tropical Rain(my favorite!),Jungle River(I hate this one- but then I never did like bubbly water noises),and Birdsong(boring but relaxing). The entire CD is about an hour long,so it's hard to get tired of!
Get this CD!You'll probably want to take it everywhere with you! A tremendous value!

5-0 out of 5 stars Relax and Concentrate
I find this an excellent CD for creating my own soothing environment at the office. It drowns out office chatter while not creating its own distraction as music sometimes does. It has that "white noise" unobtrusiveness but at the same time is not completely monotonous -- rain, rushing water, and bird calls flow along. Great for when you're trying to concentrate. ...

Loved the CD. The drums are very relaxing and soothing and at the same time upbeat depending on your mood when you listen to it. Will be checking out other music by Steve and David Gordon.

5-0 out of 5 stars My spirit soars !
I picked this CD up because of a magical dance/music production of Native American talent on PBS. I hoped for the same kind of enchantment and musical fulfillment in this CD. I found it! If you like nature, drums, and beautiful, upbeat music that "takes you away," I can't say enough about this CD. When I listen to this enchanting music, my mood is immediately elevated.It makes me want to dance with the spirits, fly with the birds. Joy, joy, joy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful Drum Beats & Natural Sounds: Awaken Spirit
This is one of the most harmonic and balanced CDs ever produced. Spirit touches spirit as the journey of the Shaman is transmitted through the drum beats, flutes, Incan panpipes, rattle, guitar, synthesizers, combined with the sounds of Nature. The soul of the Shaman resonates with the listener on this sacred musical journey. The Ancient Wisdom of nature creates energetic spirals ... illuminating one's personal path.
Most highly recommended music. Erika Borsos (erikab93)

5-0 out of 5 stars Sacred Earth Drums is an absloute gem !
This premiere native-influenced title from David and Steve Gordon is a classic gem of the genre. A variety of native drum sounds from around the world are combined with Native American flute, Incan Panpipes, Guitars and Synthesizers along with an amazing array of nature sounds and animal calls. The Gordon brothers artfully blend this ecclectic mixture into an incredible sonic landscape that is certain to delight and inspire. Each listen to Sacred Earth Drums takes the listener on a deeper journey, exposing new and delicate dimesnsions of the lush and vibrant world of the Gordon's musical imagination. Superb !

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
I bought this on a whim...completely unheard because I enjoy drumming...This is a wonderful recording...I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys drumming.
