Beautiful, eerie and haunting underwater whale song sounds from the sea.

These animals are definitely on a completely different level and command a superior intelligence. Real sound communication at its most advanced level !

This was a field recording so if captured in the moment what an experience this must have been at sea listening to these fascinating sounds.

Listen and wonder, can and will we ever understand these fragile endangered species ?

This German CD reissue from the original "Songs of the Humpback Whale LP" is the one to have for sound clarity.

This is very relaxing to listen to. Whales sound really good with the ambience of waves in this recording. You really feel like you are underwater while listening to it, as I do myself sometimes when I put it on when I go to bed sometimes.

This record contains some of the most ethereal yet guttural noises you're ever likely to hear. At first listen, its easy to imagine that you're hearing synthesizers being run through an echo chamber; the voices of the whales exhibit an unexpected variety of tones and timbres. An incredibly listenable record.

Whale music... some people might think I'm crazy (and some already do), but those whales can sing! There's some incredibly deep musical content here thats worth discovering, either as a whole, or as a sample. But trust me, if you make music, or can appreciate ANY kind of music, pick this one up.
