You can block out the world with this. I am able to concentrate and hone all my attention on a project. As a student, it is most helpful to have a peaceful barricade while you study or read dense material to get the most out of it. If you have trouble trying to fall asleep, this can calm you until you fall asleep. Highly recommend it!
I have had this in my iPod for quite a while now and this is the top used "song" on my list of over 300 songs. Love it. It works to put you to sleep. You are out within 15 minutes playing this. I've also used this as background music through my sound system in the house while reading or working on the computer or just to relax. There is music which is in the beginning half then it he music stops somewhere in the middle to have just the rain sound. It is worth the $9.99.
For those nights when it is hard to fall asleep, this does the trick
There have been a couple of nights where I just can not fall asleep. I get up, try to lay back down. Nothing works. I downloaded this on one of those nights. I sync's up to my iPhone, plugged into my clock radio then started playing. I was out in 15 minutes. I have used this multiple times now since and the sound puts me to sleep every time.
Don't believe the .89 hype
This album is NOT .89 on Amazon, it's 8.99, but very nice, I like it.
I bought this sound series based on the reviews and the short clip. Although it is not awful and I will listen to it, it is not worth the 9.99 I spent on it. It seems to be the same sound for an hour, which gets a bit old after a while. I am disappointed.
Better than the rest
By Better than the rest
I tried other rain albums and this is definitely the best one to study or fall asleep to. It's all natural sounds and the thunder sound that is included isn't too loud.
Great Rain but the Thunder is Fake and Annoying
Best rain ever. My two stars off are for the thunder. It's distracting, and it sounds more like furniture being moved than real thunder.
Consistant rain power and thunder mixed in... ok for white noise
I bought this while at line at at Starbucks. I just wanted white noise to help me concentrate while shopping and working on projects. I know the price might be a bit high for just rain and some thunder, but it does the job. Wish they had varied the rain heaviness, and thrown in a breeze or two...but it was a full hour and I didn't have to deal with a downloaded program that does the same sounds BUT shuts off as soon as I access other stuff like shopping lists or such on my phone. So, all in all. Pretty happy.
Relaxing Rain Ambience (Nature Sounds Only Version)
The sound of gentle rain on this CD is very consistent throughout the recording with an occasional rumble of distant thunder that is not at all distracting. The sound is very realistic and sounds just like the rain hitting the roof outside of my window. Great to wind down and fall asleep with. I also like the fact that it is an hour long track rather than multiple tracks. Very happy with this purchase.
i've had a hard time sleeping for a couple of years now and this has enabled me to have more hours of uninterrupted sleep than i've had in a very long time. highly recommend it for those who have a hard time winding down at night.
also, amazon sells individual clips for 89 cents, not the whole album. it pays to read carefully ;)
