After hearing a thunderstorm on a recent BBC nature program I wanted to buy a CD of a similar quality to evoke the same feelings.
I did my usual search on Amazon and came across this and I have to say it is very good. Some other CD's I found and sampled sounded very inauthentic and almost computer generated and you could tell the sound was on a short loop with the same rumbles of thunder repeating themselves. This, on the other hand, sounds fresh, natural and full of depth and there is no discernable looping to my ears.
The underlying rain sound is very soothing and the rumbles of thunder are atmospheric, add mild drama and break up the track. This plays for an hour as one long track and it is great to listen to at times of stress or when trying to sleep.
I recently played this to help me drift off to sleep on a long flight and it worked a treat.
If you are looking for a high quality, natural rainstorm recording then this is very good indeed and well worth a try.
