Music Review and Giveaway: Cradle Rock (Ends 11/25) CLOSED

Thursday, November 11, 2010 Posted by Dina N


Cradle Rock is just what it sounds like - rock (music) for the cradle. And also country music, with more styles coming up. It is intended to get your little one - and possibly you - all relaxed, drowsy and ready to nod off with lullaby versions of old favorites.

Cradle Rock is a series of lullaby albums produced and created by Brash Music and Tree Top Records. I received the first three CDs, just released on October 25. Cradle Rock uses vibraphones, glockenspiels and mellotrons to turn familiar melodies into easy listening for the naptime crowd. The ones I got are the lullaby version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller - aptly called Trillaby - as well as a Kenny Chesney compilation and another one with Johnny Cash songs. The albums are purely instrumental, but anyone can sing along - with an appropriately soothing tone of voice, of course.

We listened to these CDs in the car, as well as at home in the evening to help transition to bedtime. The music has a calming, relaxing effect, although using the same instruments makes some songs hardly distinguishable from one another. As every parent knows, sometimes a little bit of monotony can be a good thing. Some of the melodies seemed better suited for these particular instruments. I easily recognized most of the originals, and my kids and I enjoyed listening to the CDs. My favorite among the three is Trillaby, with the lullaby version of Billie Jean my top choice.

Other Cradle Rock albums now in development include U2’s “The Joshua Sleep Tree,” Black Eyed Peas’ “Sleep-pea Hits” as well as lullaby albums inspired by Nickelback, Carrie Underwood and The Eagles. Connect with Tree Top Records on Facebook.
