1. Ocean Surf - Solitudes

Product Description

This authentic, digital recording of the ocean offers the most realistic reproduction of surf imaginable. Treated to the gentle sound of waves lapping onto rocks and sweeping across sandy beaches, the listener can escape to a solitary retreat on a remote shoreline. Ocean Surf is timeless and sublime, and is guaranteed to provide a therapeutic, calming effect when played quietly. Or, at a higher volume, the program can provide an invigorating and exciting marine experience. (Only the sound of the surf is featured here. There is no wildlife or musical accompaniment.)

I would recommend this product it is excellent and it focuses only on the ocean sounds of the surf and not added music. It works as a great relaxer for me and my dog falls asleep soon after he hears it :)

Most ocean cds are of the "Sound and Fury" type, which makes them basically unsuitable for their most popular use: that of a crooning lullaby.
This recording by Dan Gibson does not, contrary to the official review above, offer you the sound of gentle waves gently lapping on the shores of Oregon. The waves of "Ocean Surf" are big and powerful ones but they are slow-paced. "Ocean Surf" is a natural, oceanic Adagio. It is majestic and yes, soothing (IF and only IF you turn down the volume)...
All my friends and visitors are transfixed when they hear this cd and most of them then proceed to ask me if they can borrow it, which I always answer in the negative.
Purists will be delighted since this recording does not feature any bird or other disturbing musical agency, either natural or artificial. It is just waves and the rustling sound of flushed sand for more than one hour.
People who are looking for more variety in sound should buy the equivalent cd by Echoes of Nature or Waves by Scott Wyker. Echoes of Nature has seagulls, singing pebbles and other oceanic audio delicacies (but no music, don't fret!), whereas Scott Wyker offers you an outstanding recording that is both genuine, evocative and extremely beautiful.

This faithful recording is useful on at least two levels...play it quitely, and it is very soothing and relaxing; play it louder and you will feel almost as if you are participating in the ebb and flow of the waves on shore....Highly recommended for those who love the ocean and those who seek quiet relaxation! Note that the sounds are only those of the water; there are no bird sounds or accompanying instruments.

This is a great ocean surf cd. It has great sounds all the way through and it's very long playing, too. It will definitely sooth and relax you. It doesn't bore *me*. Another great thing about this cd is that the sounds are quiet and NEVER LOUD OR VIOLENT AT ALL, which makes a great relaxation cd. I hope it won't bore you, either. If you like the sound of the quiet surf and don't mind nothing else, no music or anything, I think and hope you'll like this cd. I, personally, would reccomend you to go for it! It's a great relaxation cd for anybody.

Trapped in Las Vegas, only one thing can keep me sane. Dan Gibson has created a place of peace for me. The sound of the sea is the eternal sound of the earth breathing. Without it there is no life. I know this when I try to water my long dead plants. I moved here from the Northwest, where the rain is relentless. Now the sun is relentless. What was I thinking? But there is solace in Gibson's recordings for the life I once knew. I play the CD and run my fingers through sand and shells I brought with me from the coast to Sin City. Sitting in front of an air conditioner and a garden statue of a pelican, I can close my eyes and I'm almost there.....

This sounds like a ocean surf you would hear in the morning with lapping waves.There is no seagulls in this just the breathtaking sound of the ocean.This is the only ocean cd solitudes has that doesn't have seagulls.This is a good cd to wake up by as the waves are so soothing.You can also put it on before you go to bed at night.Also there's no music in this.

I got this CD almost 2 years ago to help during a time where I was experiencing a lot of anxiety. That problem passed in a couple of months, but I still listen to it every day. Not only is it a terrific meditation to have on in the background of your home, but I often listen to it with headphones on while I read. It is not distracting to my reading and I find the novel I'm reading is enhanced as it allows me to block out atmospheric sounds in the house(I listen to it with noise cancelling headphones on sometimes and I swear if I close my eyes it seems like I'm at the ocean). It is a terrific recording of just peaceful ocean surf and I would suggest it to anyone for realxation, stress relief, or even if you just love the ocean.

Are you looking for a realistic, clear, crisp sounding, tranquillizing ocean sounding cd to fall asleep by? Look no further! The gentle waves rush over pebbles on the shore and the sound is so clear and crisp that you can actually hear it!
This is not your run of the mill ocean cd! This is a great cd for background noises or a soothing relaxing sleep! There are no background or interrupting noises to wake you up and best yet - no annoying music!
I bought this cd for my partner and I.. one of us needs to have background noise to fall asleep and we both love this cd! It's a much loved purchase in our collection. Give it a try! You won't be disappointed!
