5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous collection October 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These CD were originally advertised on the TV. I thought they only selected the best tracks to promote them with but liked the tracks so I purchased them anyway. To my surprise, every track was great and the entire collection is a real keeper. I have since purchased two more sets for gifts and the recipients love them too. Well worth the money. Great buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a Time/Life "as seen on TV" collection? wow December 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even though it's got the "as seen on TV" label on it, I figured I'd pick this up since the reviews were good. I can't give it a 5 star rating since the audio quality could be better. Not that it's poor, it's just not as good as the classic mixes that are on the highly-recommended lists. But then, don't get nearly as much as is packed on this set for $10. It's a really good survey of classical, a lot of standards on here, and for the most part, they're recorded/mixed very well. I doubt anyone will like everything on here, but you'll definitely get your $10 worth with this collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing?.....Ah, Not So Much July 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I guess people's definition of "relaxing" is not quite universal. I was looking for something calming and perhaps even something to play while I was dropping off to sleep. This is not it. Many of the selections may have "relaxing" segments, but often they have rousing segments in the same selection. So, just as I am nodding off, whoosh, I am wide awake again.

In addition to the rousing segments, this CD has very poor audio quality. Reminds me of the old monotone 45 singles or 33 lp albums from my childhood. The vocals on the #9 and #10 selections on the first disc had the sound of an off pitch church choir--truly irritating and not at all calming.

If you are looking for music to relax and perhaps sleep by, either a spa-like, slow jazz, or Gregorian chant CD would be better choices. But...make sure the audio quality it good, or it will grate on your nerves.

The reasons for 3 stars and not lower? Well, it really was quite inexpensive, so at less than 20 cents a tune, I guess you can't expect too much.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Relaxing September 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD was not relaxing at all. It has quite a few pieces of very loud and upbeat music. It is not a good quality recording either. There were also places where the musicians were playing out of tune or too loud! This is not a quality product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not relaxing at all! July 16, 2011
By Jose
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Too many of the selections are ANTI-relaxing - some are agitating! I returned this set. There are other CD sets with far better selections for relaxation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Medicine After A Heart Attack! December 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I could get all long winded here. But unlike me, I will let my title of this review speak for itself. Don't want to get myself all worked up again right? :-)

Actually, never thought I would ever live to see the day I could ever even listen to 2 minutes of this type music. And almost didn't. That said, I have to admit it has really been a joy to "discover" all I have been missing. And to also discover how much on TV and in advertising has been a rip off of true classical music! Live (thank God) and learn I guess....You just can't beat this for the money. Cheaper than a hospital bill too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what the Dr. ordered January 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have trouble sleeping and don't care to take prescription medications, my Dr. suggested I listen to soothing music to relax and perhaps that might help me sleep. This music did just that. I drift off and if I wake up I just hit the button on my CD player and drift off again. I have been a life-long insomniac and this is great for a reasonable night's sleep. It even seems to help my dogs!
