There are a couple of pretty relaxed tracks on Five Miles Out by Mike Oldfield. The third and fourth tracks particularly, can't remember the names. (Although, there are probably some non-relaxed moments in the middle of the songs, they're not too short).

I have America's greatest hits, and that's pretty downtempo. I'd say thats good relaxing music.

I tend to find the more relaxing albums(like Pink Floyd) to be quite envigorating, then I fall asleep to the most random artists(i.e. The Police).

Jefferson Airplane

After Bathing at Baxter's
Surrealistic Pillow

I downloaded an entire CD of nothing but Pink Floyd's "Us and Them" and "Eclipse" you play while relaxing/sleeping. Fleetwood Macs "Rumors" is also a good one.

I dont know if they'd be classic rock, but Queen are generally pretty relaxing I find, dunno which album though, maybe A Night At The Opera

08-13-2006, 02:34 PM
^^I don't see why they wouldn't be classic rock.

Basically any album from Pink Floyd up until The Wall, cause that is kind of weird. Animals is my personal favorite.

The Grateful Dead are another good choice for relaxing moments. Some stuff off of Physical Graffiti (The Zeppelin) is quite relaxing, mostly on the 2nd disc.

Exactly. The intro to Time will UNrelax anyone. I prefer Wish You Were Here.
So Far by CSN&Y is also excellent.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Everybody Knows This is Nowhere
Bob Dylan - Desire

On An Island - David Gilmour
Tales From Topographic Oceans - Yes I often listen to one of those two albums before I go to sleep. Good choices.

I find Houses of the Holy by Led Zeppelin is relaxing for the most part . . . apart from maybe The Song Remains The Same and Dancing Days, although I find the verses to that relaxing too.

Some are like mellow chillout tunes, and some are like kind of the other chillout tunes maybe to get drunk or stoned to if you catch my drift.

Free's album Fire and Water is fairly relaxing...

Beautiful music from one of the world's greatest bands.

Dire Straits' album "Brothers In Arms has some great relaxing tunes, such as "So Far Away", "Your Latest Trick", "Why Worry", and "Brothers In Arms". Excellent album.

Animals - Pink Floyd

Free's album Fire and Water is fairly relaxing...

Seriously? The only song I've heard on there is, of course, All Right Now..and it doesn't seem relaxing. I'll have to check it out.

Houses of The Holy by Led Zeppelin is really relaxing.
One reason, i think, is that the sound volume is at a pretty consistent level, so it's not like on some albums where there's some parts where in one moment you can barely hear anything, and in the next it's so loud that you have to turn it down. It goes from the harder songs to the softer without any real change in volume, which I find kinda soothing for the ears.
I find The Rain Song and No Quarter to be the most relaxing.

I would recommend "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd, or disk 2 of the Song Remains the Same soundtrack( i know it sounds odd, but when i put it on to relax, im pretty much asleep by about the time "stairway" is over). Also, if Bob Dylan counts as classic rock in some cases, then i would recommend that you try to find a copy of the mix cd that was released through victoria secret. I own it, and it is one of the most relaxing cds I have.

strateer
10-01-2006, 06:08 AM
ummagumma by pink floyd (except in some parts)

led zeppelin III (with a few exceptions)

Another side of bob dylan

the division bell by the 3 man floyd

david gilmour new on an island album relaxes me the most that i have been able to be relaxed since dark side

rocker138
10-01-2006, 03:26 PM
Jimi Hendrix-Axis Bold As Love
Pink Floyd-Meddle, Dark Side of The Moon

A lot of Steve Miller Band and Led Zeppelin too.

I usually listen to the beatles when i'm going to sleep, so maybe try one of thier albums? Maybe take The Dark Side of the Moon and make a copy w/o "time"to go to sleep to? Other than time it's a very relaxing album.
