Review of Fresh Pond Trees

Not my cup of tea, but I know that some people would like to hear it. I think it would work best as a Sound Portrait. The sound quality is excellent, but I think some of that may be lost if the listener is in the car.

For me personally, I don't think I'd want to hear a lot of pieces like this, but it's hard to tell by hearing just one. I think part of the joy of listening would be being there, surrounded by the trees, hearing a creek off to the left, seeing the patches of bright green undergrowth where the early day sun has snuck through, smelling the smells of the forest. In my car, I probably miss many of the nuances of the creeking, and maybe I don't hear any of the other background sounds. I'm originally from Montana, perhaps I'm spoiled.
