Editor's review by Adam Corn (2019-01-01)

The sixth album in the Prescription for Sleep arranged album series takes the melodies of the indie synth OST Celeste and gives them the series' staple piano and sax treatment, along with an extra element new to this installment - violin. That extra addition is huge - whereas saxophone and piano alone is hard not to associate by default to jazz lounge music, the violin adds a new range of moods that suit Celeste's themes very nicely (and that I venture will hold more appeal to many game music fans). Despite the title I find the album best suited to background music when working at the PC or otherwise trying to focus - there are plenty of less interesting albums to fall asleep to.
