Having received the CD's yesterday, I stared at this one (A Secret Life) and wondered what to do with it.
In my heart, I knew it would be best listened to in a quiet room on a darn good stereo (are they still called that these days?). I don't have one now, and acoustics in my house are awful. I put on the i-pod (with Mirrorball that came at the ame time) and had a go at listening to it whilst running on a treadmil at the gym. No! No good. Then, back in the office I was getting distracted by many things and couldn't focus. Out comes the i-pod and in no time I was through the whole album and had finished the tasks I was trying to complete. It had an interesting ability to keep me calm and collected. I found myself drawn into the sounds but still able to focus on my work. It was filling empty slots in my brain but wasn't ousting anything.
I listened to it twice.
I can identify with the thread that says there isn't enough of this - I agree. I also think that it won't work for everyone, but that isn't a concern, as it really works for me!
