This album is a con. From the information given it is impossible to tell that it is an artificial studio mix of sea and animal noises which have no relationship to the REAL SONIC WORLD of dolphins and whales. Anybody interested in this world of sound should go for SONGS OF THE HUMPBACK WHALE, which is a truly serious CD, with explanations about the recordings, and which is truly captivating and magical.
I didn't enjoy this CD at all if I'm honest. The dolphin clicks and whale songs are certainly interesting from a nature perspective, but I can't imagine when anyone would want to listen to this at home perhaps at a dinner party. It seems like the whales are just trying to communicate and not make music. They are often out of key and there is no rhythm; these animals certainly need some music lessons if they are going to make anything pleasing to sophisticated human ears. The dolphin that keeps making that horrible squeak noise from 10 minutes to about 20 would struggle to get past even the first round of X Factor. In fact, most of the sounds are just annoying. If other dolphins and whales find these sounds attractive and pleasurable to the ear, perhaps this hammers home why these animals are clearly inferior to humans. The only reason we don't eat whales and dolphins yet we do eat other sea creatures is because they are big and supposedly beautiful and intelligent. Any special treatment whales and dolphins get for a supposed 'singing ability' is totally unfair- these animals clearly have no talent. They can't even breathe underwater, and so have to keep coming up for air. If you are aiming to provide some interesting and soothing sounds to your dinner party or perhaps you are trying to woo a special lady, forget this one. These sounds may work as mating calls for wales and dolphins, but we are more evolved and intelligent than these fat ugly animals. Put on some Marvin Gaye instead.
