Very nice mix, soothing soundtracks that accompany studying perfectly - I only wish you'd remove Terrorist Mind. It's really jarring, does not fit the theme at all. And puts people off listening to the whole thing, which deserves to be listened to

This mix is stunning. Absolutely incredible, you've bunched together such a menagerie of beautiful music here. I'm floored (though slightly delirious on lack of sleep). Thank you so much for making the effort of doing so.

Currently killing my history paper which is due in an hour and a half thanks to this playlist! I just had to take a moment to thank you for one of the few playlists of instrumental music that doesn't make me sleepy and actually has me really pumped!! My brain has gone into cardio mode (or that might be the coffee) and I feel super focused and I'm really loving the music... THANK YOU <3

I have a habit of singing or playing songs in my head while I'm trying to work. I wind up focusing on my humming more than my work. ...I come here to override my internal music with more unknown but pleasant music, so my brainpower goes towards my work and I can hum along absently but without getting too engaged.

@UmbraGlide I'm glad it helps you! I have a similar problem -- unless I listen to music like this when I'm studying or working I completely zone out into a different world.

I'm currently writing this at 3 AM with a paper due in the morning and let me assure you this is the only thing keeping me awake!! Absolutely lovely mix, really helps keep the brain working when the bed is just so tempting ;w; <3

@azelpop I'm so glad it helps you. :) I know what it's like to pull all-nighters for the sake of essays, so I hope that once all's said and done you get some rest!
