The Most Relaxing Classical Album in the World Ever comes close to living up to its name, collecting two discs' worth of serene classical favorites like Grieg's "Morning" from Peer Gynt, Satie's "Gymnopedie No. 1," Debussy's "Clair De Lune," Pachelbel's "Canon in D" and "Winter" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons are some of the other highlights of this worthwhile collection of soothing, time-tested melodies. ~ Heather Phares
