If you would like to fall asleep to the gentle sounds of the ocean, then this recording is NOT for you. Starting with soothing ocean waves, the listener is abruptly awaken about 15 min into the recording - awaken by some sort of loud, shrieking creature - I mean LOUD! 25-30 min into the recording, the listener is surrounded by a gaggle of geese, trumpeting away with their disharmonious honking. Then, a bit of thunder - nice, but whatever... Then the waves again... No consistency. In all fairness to the producers of this gem, the recoding is great if you need only a quick power nap - you'll be awaken within 15 min by that excruciating shrill!
