CD: Perfect Sleep by Medwyn Goodall
Total running time: 47 minutes
1 Evening Slumbers
2 The Healing Waters
Back of CD says: Created in such a way as to lower the heart rate, blood pressure and induce sleep, delicate continuous tones played on piano and guitars, produce an abstract sense to floating away. This music enhances the voyage into 'perfect sleep', peaceful yet creative. The mind is encouraged to wander and begin dreaming by music recorded in repeat cycles which create just enough hypnotic effect to lower the activity of the logical mind and instead appeal to the creative mind, the imagination.
Mastered for low volume use track 1 includes evening birdsong, known to help the natural rhythm of the body acknowledge that its is time to rest.
(Track 2 includes the calming sounds of a soft flowing stream, as we associate water with relaxation, holidays and fond memories, all of which assist sleep in a refreshing and positive way.)

Reviews - rated 5/5 based on customer reviews4 out of 5 By Rachel NewcombeThis CD consists of very gentle guitar and piano usic, which is designed to help lull you into a relaxed state, ready to go off to sleep. The music is very light and almost hypnotic, with a mesmerising quality that encourages you to calmly rift off into peaceful slumber. It's wonderfully designed for night time use, with unobtrusive natural birdsong sounds intermingled with the music on track one and the sound of the sea on track two. I often use similar CD's as sleeping aids, so this was a good test. The verdict - it did indeed help induce perfect sleep! In fact, every single time I used it, I never heard the end.
The music is hauntingly beautiful and seemed to send me floating off into a serene dream state and each morning I woke up from a deep sleep feeling refreshed and ready to go. So for me, this CD certainly did work as effectively as the blurb suggests it should. As well as helping to aid the sleeping process, I think it could be very useful for helping people unwind and rid their mind of all the events of the day or get into a good state for meditation or relaxation, as it's so soothing. Definitely a winner for me!4 out of 5 By Jacqui, East DorsetPlayed once, seemed odd there was no track one, we thought there something wrong with the recorder, when it did come on track two, it was nice restful music, I think I would have preferred it, if there were no breaks between the sounds, my brain didn`t rest,however it was interesting as to wot picture visions came into my mind whilst I was listening to it!!! So I think I will use for meditaion,or newage pathworking in future.
5 out of 5 By Pamela, North LanarkshireDoes what it says on the tin!! Thoroughly pacifying, intensely relaxing, I cannot rate this highly enough. I am trying to reach the end, but alas, I keep falling asleep!
