Customer Reviews

On my computer it sounds like very quiet, almost inaudible hissing.
Karen
I would recommend it if you are having trouble sleeping or waking up a lot during the night or if you just want a more relaxed slumber.
Kelley Hunt
This might very well just be me since so many other people seemed to get such good results from this music.

This cd is supposed to put you into a deep sleep (called "delta" sleep). It worked for me. When I got the cd I put it on the cd player just to hear it and it made me very drowsy even though it was about 4 hours until bedtime. I play it all night and I wake up less often. I also remember more dreams after listening to it all night. The music is a kind of subtle, low-pitched white noise, but it's a musical white noise, not like a toned-down radio static white noise. I would recommend it if you are having trouble sleeping or waking up a lot during the night or if you just want a more relaxed slumber.

I purchased this CD along with the others in the series...Classical, Natural and Soothing. I am not sure if there was a flaw in production or what the deal is. I have a CD alarm clock next to the bed that I listen to the CDs on. For the other three the "right" volume is 4. To even hear this one I have to turn it 7 or 8. I am not sure why there is such a big difference.
But once I get it to where I can actually hear it, I do like the CD and it does help me fall asleep. I like it a whole lot better then the "Soothing" which annoys me to pieces.
Would be great if it was recorded at a decent volume.

I was wondering if this will work since i have diffculties sleeping. Within 15 minutes I was gone!. You could have called and shaken my bed and I wouldnt even move. You go into such a deep sleep that you wake up still floating. Works as good as ambien!

I recently purchased a set of these CDs by Dr. Thompson: ambient, classical and natural music for sleep. I've had on and off insomnia for my whole life, and NOTHING has every helped like Dr. Thompson's CDs. My husband and I listen to them almost every night, and we both noticed a marked improvement in the quality of our sleep. (He wasn't having insomnia, yet he is sleeping better anyway.) After about a month, I have found myself needing less sleep, because I am sleeping so soundly and waking up refreshed.
For the people for whom the CDs didn't work, well, you have to have an open mind and "play along" and allow yourself to become relaxed while listening. Laying there thinking "this isn't working" will probably prevent you from falling asleep.
The "music" isn't great itself, it's more of a soothing soundscape than music, so don't buy this CD if you are looking for general music to listen to. It has one purpose, and that is to lull you into a good night's rest.
I recommend the ambient music CD (new agey and light) and the natural music CD (crickets and such and ambient music. The classical music CD is a little distracting, although they are beautiful pieces and worth owning on CD, however I find myself listening to the progression of the individual pieces and not falling asleep as quickly.

Before I bought this CD, I would sometimes feel like I didn't sleep very deeply and was easily woken up. Not any more. We used to sleep with the television on for some background noise, but now we put this CD in and use the repeat function so that it plays all night. I sleep very deeply now and rarely wake up in the middle of the night. My husband has been sleeping better too. The tracks fade into each other so that you can't tell where one ends and the next begins. The music on the first track is an almost underwater/in-the-womb sound. I can't tell you what the other tracks sound like because I usually don't stay awake that long! And like another reviewer stated, I remember my dreams more and they seem much more vivid, but then again, I wasn't remembering them very well before so who knows. I plan on buying the Delta Sleep System (also by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson) for some variation.

This is just one more example of how good this doctors CD's for stress and sleep problems is. I put it on continuous play and sleep soundly with wonderful dreams that allow me to wake refreshed and in a marvelous mood. Highly recommended, along with all his other CD's.

I bought this cd because after a full 10 hour day of work as a customer service representative my mind is gone. I feel so stressed after the day is over and I need something to help me unwind. When I am ready to go to sleep I pop this cd into my surround sound system and let it play. As you listen it is like drifting into an angelic cloud of beauty. I fall alseep everytime. I know some people have complained about the type of sounds on it but to be fair it is called Ambient music. If you are not familiar to this type of music. Ambient is very subtle sounds with minimalistic changes in chords. It is meant as background music and is not very melodic. If you are looking for more relaxing music I suggest checking out yanni or something like that. But if you want to drift to sleep fast, give this is a try. Keep an open mind and this will work.

It's a big stretch to call this music. A more descriptive title would be Ambient Sounds. It's more like variable white noise, or a low, almost inaudible base monotone with hissing. It may work if you want background sounds all night, but I prefer to listen, relax, and then turn it off when I'm sleepy.

I bought Peaceful Music for Sleep for our daughter's naps. It's also by Jeffrey Thompson, and it is music-like a gentle flute and piano duet. It certainly seems to help our daughter sleep, and puts me in a restful and peaceful mood too.

I expected Ambient Music to be similar, so I was very disappointed. I can't listen to this CD long enough to find out if it works. I suggest you listen to the sample if you can. (I didn't.) On my computer it sounds like very quiet, almost inaudible hissing. That's what this CD is like. Obviously it works for some, but if you want relaxing music, try Peaceful Music for Sleep instead.
