 My Review
I received a free copy of "The Sound of Sunshine" to review.  Overall, I was happy with the CD.  The second track on the CD, "Shake It" was not my taste, but I do think that it would be great workout music.  The rest of the CD was music that I would listen to in my car with my son.  I found the music to be soothing and something that I will clean my house to.  I loved the first song, The Sound of Sunshine, the most.  If you order any of the songs or the CD, please tell me what you think!  You can find out more at

My husband and son love listening to music with their bass up high.  Some of these songs would sound great in their car stereo.  However, I love to mellow out while I am listening to my music, so I listened with my Dolby Surround Sound.

Disclosure: I received the CD from EMI free of charge.  I did not have to post a positive review to receive the CD.  All wording in my review is my opinion.
