Nine Inch Nails changed the way an entire generation of kids heard the music around them. Trent Reznor uses unique sounds to create electronic music that is otherworldly. His songs are a warm place that are closer to being fragile than broken. If your child bites the hand that feeds, play this album. It is made with all the love in the world. Rockabye Baby! transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies. The soothing sounds of the glockenspiel, vibraphone, mellotron and other instruments will lull your baby into a sweet slumber.
Each release in the Rockabye Baby! series takes the best-known songs of a particular artist and places them in a lullaby processor that involves chimes, bells, and vibraphones -- renditions that are slightly more involved than the music that comes out of the average baby mobile. Whether the original versions are heavy and aggressive or light and subdued, these lullaby versions are uniformly appropriate for their purpose. And, in some cases, they even happen to tease out an unlikely amount of melodicism not apparent in the originals. The Nine Inch Nails volume features versions of "Something I Can Never Have," "Hurt," "Closer," "Sin," and "Wish." Andy Kellman, All Music Guide
I enjoy all the rockabye renditions. I teach preschool and it is a nice break for me too when I put any of these selections on at naptime. This one is my favorite though. I am a big NIN fan, so it was nice to hear even some of their newest in this remix. I can't wait for Green Day's rendition to become available in the near months.
We have several of these Rock-A-Bye Cds and this is by far my favorite. They are all good but this one "rocks"
