Performance:   Sonics:    
I bought this 'cause I don't own any non-musical SACD's and I thought that this would be interesting as I like weather. Indeed this recording is something else. No instruments except for natures own. For a little over 54 minutes, one can transform their location to a woodland lake surrounded by mountains. The multichannel sounds start with birds chirping here and there with a very subtle (what I feel is out of place) distant blowing strong wind better suited for arctic climes. Then a soft rumbling of a thunderstorm in the very far right distance. Next the rain starts slowly and soon builds with thunder every so often. It then slows and the wetland animals begin their concert. Loons, frogs, and others join in a cacophony that I swear includes a Bigfoot or two as light raindrops begin their fall. All of this is a clean and crisp and realistic as can be. Next is the soft sounds of waves lapping the lakeshore as the thunder and rain starts again. Another round of woodland sounds again and it ends. The thunderstorm really isn't a major player here but shares the scene with the environment. I kept expecting to hear a shattering thunderclap but it never happens. So, If you like to occasionally lay down and relax while listening to something, but wanting a natural non-musical setting and you like the sound of rain punctuated with occasional birds and other natural sounds, this is the way to go. Sound is tremendous and the cost is often below ten dollars.
