2.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity, 20 April 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lullaby Classics (Audio CD)
We bought a few of these Baby Einstein CDs for our baby boy (so this review concerns all three titles) and to be honest I'm rather disappointed with the content. The tracks are mostly produced with electronic sounds which imitate their acoustic sources. There are a few acoustic solos but overall the sound is sequenced (and in places rather badly too). If I were after a cover of club/dance classics such production would be great, but here, we are talking about acoustic music. The Lullaby Classics CD would benefit from real acoustic instruments especially. I want my baby to hear these compositions as they were suppose to sound - perhaps with simpler arrangements than the original full blown orchestrations, as not to overload our baby's hearing - but nonetheless using acoustic instruments. So, not really 'Baby Einstein', but more like 'Baby Muzak'... I see myself compiling my own selection of gentle and soothing classical music compositions, which really don't need that electronic-computerised approach to benefit my baby boy. :-(

Totally agree that babies and young children need acoustic sounds (you never get them on Cbeebies!) There may be a place for very simple, bland collection early on but they deserve more than Baby Muzak. My 2-year old grand-daughter is transfixed by the real sound of a cello on CD - eyes widen, really listening, amazed that anything can be so wonderful. Also to string quartet encountered in Covent Garden! My other grand-daughters love Duke Ellington.There is so much that you can try with them when theyare a bit older - eg flamenco, Bach dances.
