Issued by Legacy (not the Sony BMG imprint), this edition in their Tranquil Moments series is simply an hourlong recording of a "roaring log fire." No more, no less. The liner notes on the back request that you listen at low volume to get the maximum benefit, and maintain that these sounds are "joyful, uplifting and relaxing." They also claim that by listening to this CD you can transform "your atmosphere into a more restful, spacious one." Who knows? Maybe they conducted the proper research, finding a bunch of stressed-out types who needed such a thing, or courted urban listeners who were unlikely to go out somewhere to start their own roaring log fires. You be the judge. The one thing we don't know, hence no real rating, is that we have no idea how it stacks up against other "roaring log fire" albums. Perhaps they've just invented a genre.
