whoever said silence is golden was wrong...,
This review is from: The Sound of Summer Rain (MP3 Download)
... very wrong, silence is tedious, incredibly tedious.
We have countless ways to distract the mind, with music and television all the way to infinity, but there is no more a pleasing distraction than the sound of nature at its most potent.
Now i simply adore a good british summer, not these manky dreary ones of late but those long hot summers that usually end up with rioting or rebellin of some sort. Their great, so why i find the sound of rainfall and thunder so charming is a mystery to me, but i find the sounds of rain and rain drops ever so relaxing, its a wonderful sound and sure to relax even the most hyperactive of people, of which i am one of those hyper types.
This really is a lovely recording, the sound levels are very good indeed, great through big speakers, equally great in headphones but headphones defeats the object of owning and listening to these nature sounds, they should be played in the background at a sensible volume, headphones have their place but their not for listening to nature on.
Anyhow, i love this recording, it gradually builds up, staring off gentle and slowly getting more climactic and epic, simply gorgeous.
