What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
What I really appreciate in a SLEEP hypnosis program is the ability to SLEEP through it. There seems to be an attempt made about every 15 minutes or so to jar the listener awake with sudden silence in the midst of talking, jangly piano music after several minutes of quiet ocean sounds, many minutes of near silence with barely audible tones back to some VERY LOUD TALKING. Sheesh. And why on earth is the default conclusion to the (rushed, not relaxing) relaxation bit at the beginning to bring me "WIDE AWAKE!! unless you'd rather sleep, then do that or whatever.. but otherwise!! Get Ready!!! We're gonna count up to being WIDE AWAKE!!!" For !@#!@ sake. Are you trying to make me an "alpha female" by pissing me off and depriving me of sleep while wasting my audible credits? It's working.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Probably a free Youtube video that will do a much better job. Or maybe I'll make one myself with my cell phone. Maybe Audible will buy it!!
Would you be willing to try another one of Joel Thielke’s performances?
No. This was unlistenable.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Be an Alpha Female & Empower Yourself with Hypnosis, Meditation, and Affirmations?
This recording was clearly not edited by anyone.. though some of the jarring blank spots do seem to be editing remnants.. so maybe it was. I can't imagine that a person previewed any of the (jarring) piano music selections and thought, "Yeah.. someone could sleep through this...!"
The fluctuation in volume does not seem intentional or helpful.. ESPECIALLY the COMMERCIAL at the end. Did you really need to follow up the subliminal, nearly silent ocean sounds section with a full volume announcement about the author, copyright and website information? REALLY? You needed to wake me up to tell me about your website? 4 hours deep puts that around 2am. Thanks a lot. It's bad enough that Audible tacks on a cheerful "Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program!" to the end of everything, even if it is intended for sleep. Audible is just being thoughtless. Most of their books are not for sleep. This is the freaking SLEEP LEARNING SYSTEM. There are moons on the cover art! What are we not clear on here? If I'm going to learn in my sleep, you have to let me SLEEP. GAHH!!!
Any additional comments?
There is just no organization here. It's a random, noisy hodgepodge of poorly edited, poorly created, poorly selected sounds. Don't waste your time, sleep or credits.
