Unlike some nature recordings, Peter Roberts' Tropical Sounds is unencumbered by manmade add-ons like hissing keyboards or moody synth soundscapes. Instead, it is a bare field recording featuring the self-explanatory sounds of tracks like "Tropical Beach" and "Howler Monkeys." As an additional perk for nature lovers, the liner notes to Tropical Sounds identify the types of birdcalls heard throughout the album.
