Condition: Used: Very Good
Comment: Very good condition CD with jewel case, single page back tray inlay and the front multi-page notes from Philomel Records. The case is clean and it currently shows no cracking or chipping. The case snap closure works perfectly and the disc hub is intact. The notes and inlay are also clean and they have no cuts, tears, pen marks or punch holes. The disc has only a very light touch of surface level scratching, none of which caused any problems for me during playback. The inner band matrix identifier on the disc is IFPI 5100 (outer band is IFPI L336).

Editorial Reviews

Diana is a professor of psychology at the University of California at San Diego, and has a special interest (OK, an obsession) with auditory illusions. She knows so much about them that she can actually create new ones, and now you can enjoy her creations in the comfort of your own headphones. These two CDs, which are professionally-produced to a very high standard, are absolutely mind-boggling. Diana is, in effect, hosting a magical mystery tour of your own brain, and believe me, it's quite a ride. You will hear things that aren't there, perceive differences that don't exist except in your imagination, be befuddled by the auditory processes of your own brain, and listen as your own mind slowly transforms plain ordinary speech into melodic music. If all this sounds weird and wonderful and intriguing, well, it should.

Love the research/author.... Unfortunately the audio is lost on me. In other words, the science is fascinating (credit to Ms. Deutsch), listening to content/tones is not as much fun. Interesting, I find visual illusion to be interesting... seems not so much audio.
