Sleeping Album

Does anyone listen to an album before sleeping.

I use Porcupine Tree's LIGHTBULB SUN.

I put the CD player in the sleep mode ( timer generally 40-45 minutes)... and by the 5th or 6th song, I am wide asleep and dreaming.

I have been using this album for last 1 month or so.

During my freshman year of college, I used to listen to Sarah McLauchlan's Fumbling Towards Ecstacy when I was trying to take a nap. The best of Simon and Garfunkel works nicely for me as well.

Oh yeah.

I'm not one of those people who can spontaneously fall asleep anywhere (like so many people I know), but if I'm in a car and Pink Floyd's Echoes is playing, I'm out like a light.

Daniel Lanois' Shine is filled with pedal steel instruments and is some mad sleepy listening.

I almost always use music to sleep. I have a discman I keep in bed with me and just put it on repeat all and have it playing all night. Took a while to get used to sleeping in headphones, but now I can't sleep if it's too quiet.

Great sleeping CDs for me include:

Wires; Second Storey -- Art of Fighting (these are my current ones)
Hope Springs; Storms Dressed As Stars -- Gersey
Isidore -- self titled
Good Fortunes (Night Play disc) -- The Penny Drops (a 2 cd set. One disc is Day Play, one is Night Play)
Gilt Trip -- Steve and Russell Kilbey
Bastard Universe -- The Church (BU is the 80 minute jam session which is the bonus disc to Hologram of Baal)
Jammed -- The Church
After Everything Now This -- The Church
Save the Ones You Love -- Halogen

I always seem to fall asleep with a CD on recently. Generally it depends on the mood I'm in but for about a month I found that I couldn't sleep unless I had A Perfect Circle's first album on and it had to be only the first 6 tracks
Others that I keep going back to are Jeff Buckley - Grace, Wilco - Being There (disc 2), U2 - Achtung Baby and Michael Hutchence's solo album.
