Album Review:The Most Relaxing Classical Music In The Universe

Taken from Amazon.
Composers:(See track listing)

Genres:Classical (obviously)

General thoughts:Despite my love of rock and roll, I'm not really a fan of fast-paced, louder classical music (unless it's a tribute to a rock song). I prefer the calmer, quieter bits. There's plenty of that here.

You'll find lots of familiar pieces on this album. Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Debussy, and multiple others are included. Many tracks tend to be long (5 minutes or more).

I don't know about the most relaxing in the universe, but this is pretty calm. For only a few bucks at Target or Amazon, this is worth the money for fans of classical music.
