Music for Relaxation: Singing Birds and Sounds of the Everglades is a relatively benign -- but very cool -- double CD of nature sounds with synthisizer "enhancements". "Singing Birds" does not need enhancements. The creators of this disc chose -- wisely -- to let the birds create the symphony. There are no attempts to rearrange the instruments into any kind of man-made structure. "Sounds of the Everglades," equally "enhanced", has a more ambient and minimalist structure. An underlying buzz from crickets and/or cicadas creates a perfect drone. Sounds from other animals and nature surround the drone giving it a natural enhancement. As these types of discs go, this one is a bargain and a diamond in the rough.
