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).

I'm going to recommend a few albums from some bands I find to be relaxing, so if you don't have any of these (or do, but aren't familiar with them), check them out.

The Grateful Dead

American Beauty
Blues for Allah
Workingman's Dead

Jefferson Airplane

After Bathing at Baxter's
Surrealistic Pillow
Takes Off...

Pink Floyd

Dark Side of the Moon
Meddle
Atom Heart Mother

Van Morrison

Astral Weeks
Moondance
Tupelo Honey

There's many other bands that have relaxing albums, but here's a few to get you started.
#16
Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon
Police(can we call them CR?)- Greatest Hits
Journey
#17
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.
#20
The Who Sell Out. mellow, but still rock.

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
#22
^^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.

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.

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.
#32
Animals - Pink Floyd

Quote by TheHeartbreaker
Free's album Fire and Water is fairly relaxing...

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


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.

Moody Blues - A Night in White Satin .... that is my favorite chill out album.
