Hello guys, I love listening to acoustic and instrumental music because it is relaxing, but my friends argue that acoustic is better because hearing the voice of the singer is better so they could sing a long, but about half of my friends love to listen to instrumental because they say they're like listening to the sound of nature. Hey guys, Which is more relaxing, acoustic of instrumental? Why?

acoustic dude... I like it with the voicing but down to earth light music. It's soothing to the ears and it's like you're riding on a smooth wave...

Although I love songs and singing, if I want to relax there's nothing better than instrumental music. I particularly like the music of Ravel, Debussy, and Vaughn Williams (not necessarily in that order). I also like movie soundtracks. Some soundtracks are unusually good.

Yes you are right, Instrumental is one of the better one. This really improves concentration and makes your mind sharp without your notice. This I have tried.

I think instrumental music is more relaxing than listening to something with words. I used to only listen to instrumental music, but I recently started listening to other stuff as well. I enjoy country and bluegrass, but I don't find that relaxing.

I have this pam flutes instrumental CD which really helps reducing stress and makes me calm. I go for instrumental. Well, accoustic could help too, just depends which songs and which genre.
