The music is, above all, very soothing. The vocals are smooth and relaxing, without being too babyish. The fact is, most of the songs are not kids songs at all. Its a wonderful mix of modern and folk singers, which blend to make for a nice addition to your evening routine.
There are a few surprises, like Barenaked Ladies crooning 'Close to You', or Bobby McFerren on 'Common Threads'. And I absolutely adore Keb' Mo'. Then you have a few of the more expected tracks, such as Allison Krauss singing 'Baby Mine'. It's a nice version, but I'm still scratching my head wondering why everyone feels the need to use this song on thier kids' CD. Love ya Dumbo, but been there, done that!
Bottom line: if you're looking for something to listen to while you're rockin' that bundle of joy, here's your ticket. It's a 'good thing'.
Many, many great arrangements on this CD, and a welcome break from Brahms and other overplayed lullabies. Favorites (for me and the kids) include Baby Mine, Over the Rainbow, and Good Night.
Some of the arrangements are beautifully poignant - and honestly, they occasionally bring tears to my eyes even now. I expect that when I'm in the "right mood" someday, as an empty nester I will pull out the baby photo albums, put on this CD, pour myself a cup of tea (herbal, of course) and have a good cry.

This is not a CD you will find in stores, but it is worth chasing down a copy. The overall mood of the disc is gentle and mellow, with artists that most of us 30 - 40 year old... Read morePublished on February 22, 2013 by Liza A. Lagman
