I have not heard this CD but the idea that listening to Classical music in the womb has been disproven by legitimate scientists for a long time. A simple search found the following...
"The Mozart Effect is an example of how science and the media mix in our world. A suggestion in a few paragraphs in a scientific journal becomes a universal truth in a matter of months, eventually believed even by the scientists who initially recognized how their work had been distorted and exaggerated by the media. Others, smelling the money, jump on the bandwagon and play to the crowd, adding their own myths, questionable claims, and distortions to the mix."
"The idea for the Mozart Effect originated in 1993 at the University of California, Irvine, with physicist Gordon Shaw and Frances Rauscher, a former concert cellist and an expert on cognitive development. They studied the effects on a few dozen college students of listening to the first 10 minutes of the Mozart Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major (K.448). They found a temporary enhancement of spatial-temporal reasoning, as measured by the Stanford-Binet IQ test. No one else has been able to duplicate their results. One researcher commented that the "very best thing that could be said of their [Shaw's and Rauscher's] experiment-were it completely uncontested-would be that listening to bad Mozart enhances short-term IQ" (Linton). Rauscher has moved on to study the effects of Mozart on rats. Both Shaw and Rauscher have speculated that exposure to Mozart enhances spatial-reasoning and memory in humans. "
Note that the only scientific tests were performed on college students.
If you want to listen to Mozart, great. Just buy a CD that does not insult your intelligence by making ridiculous claims.

I am a music teacher and a parent of two young children, so I have particular interest in this recording. First, I would like to strongly support the well written liner notes which explain the strong effect that Mozart's music has on the young mind. It has been proven in numerous studies that music, particular that of Mozart, stimulates brain activity in unique ways.
As for the recordings on this CD, I too was taken aback at first by the arrangements and instrumentation of this CD. After a while though, I found myself almost compelled to listen to the music. The melody is clearly separated from the harmony by the strange instrumentation, and I found my own brain activated by listening to this music. Far from Mozart 'Lite,' I believe this CD surpasses authentic recordings in its ability to stimulate the mind. Most importantly, my children love this CD and listen to it over and over.
There are many fine recordings to choose from for an adult who wishes to enjoy the music of Mozart. When it comes to thought provoking, stimulating music for children and adults-"The Mozart Effect" delivers as promised.

This collection is such a good idea (assuming, of course, that the research is right and classical music does enhance learning) that I couldn't wait to listen to it. Unfortunately, the arrangements and performers leave a lot to be desired. Many of the tracks feature the sound of a high pitched flute or whistle, making this sound like Mozart "lite". Personally, I think this produces a watered down effect that can turn the listener off to classical music for good. Also, I think the claims on the labels that listening to these CDs "increases verbal, emotional, and spatial intelligence; improves concentration and memory; inspires right-brain, creative thinking/processes; improves body movement and co-ordination" etc. are exaggerated and probably unsupported. It's a shame because people who are not classical music fans will pick up these CDs for their children, but it's not likely either they or their children will be drawn further into the wonderful world of classical music by listening to The Mozart Effect.

While the high pitched flute may not be for everyone, theconcept is outstanding, and the children's minds are responding.Claims of superior spatial reasoning, brain development, coordination, and musical ability have not only been proven, but are widely and absolutely accepted and practiced among concerned, educated society. For further information, look up music education, early child development--music, or Montessori teaching techniques. While these selections may not be the most asthetically pleasing to some, others consider their children's future more important than their own music preference. "You can please all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time. But you can never please all the people all the time."--Abraham Lincoln

For years, I have used Classical Music in my middle school science classroom as background. If the music is not playing, my students ask if they may start it again! They ask for the Motzart Effect more than any other of the classical selections I play. Especially at times of testing and written evaluation, they most often request "Relax, Daydream, and Draw". I do think it is important that we listen to the voice and choice of our young people when evaluating musical presentation created especially for their age groups! Now I am purchasing this set for my 2 month old grand-daughter so that she, too, may enjoy it.
