Especially Slightly all the Time, very relaxing and helps with sleep
When I used to listen to music when falling asleep, I would often use Soft Machine, any from Third to 7.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

I would think Entangled and Mad Man Moon also.

John G Perry Sunset wading, thats a lovely lp and very underated. Anthony Phillips Geese and the Ghost is another 'drift off' lp for me, gentle and calm. Pat Metheny, As falls Witchita so falls Witchita Falls is great bed time music.. Vangelis 'Soil Festivities' (bit 'ambient' in this context perhaps) lovely drifting off with the rain falling on the roof of your caravan (lived in one many years back) and Hergest ridge by Mike Oldfield

Very much agree.

I also enjoy Caravanserai by Santana and the early Moody Blues albums.

That should work... I'm quite a fan of the three!

Thanks!

The whole album would qualify, I think.

One thing though - if I chose to spin Deathspell Omega before crashing, I do recall having nightmares - well, not heart-attack dodge, but horror-themed dreams. No blood, from memory.

I love Opeth, Slayer, and VDGG, but I would never consider listening to them before bed. They just make me excited and energetic - in other words, they wake me up before I even start to fall asleep!

Geese and the Ghost has too many frantic moments imo and so does Trespass and some of Camel's later albums. Harbour of Tears by Camel might be good though. I haven't heard it in a long time but I remember it being rather drifty.

Classical music isn't dead, it's more alive than it's ever been. It's just not on MTV.

That piece is absolutely awesome. My favorite part of Trick of a Tail!

Entangled isn’t too shabby either. Wink

I’d nod my head in agreement, but the title track is quite intense and definitely not bedtime music.

You think "Careful with that Axe Eugene" would work well for going to sleep?
