If you’ve ever been to a rave, you’ll know the term “deep sleep” means “sleep during the day but not at night.”
For many, this sounds like the perfect description for Amazon Music, the music service that lets you get up and listen to a wide variety of music at home while relaxing at a nearby bar.
It’s a great way to get some extra sleep in between gigs and while you’re at the bar, of course.
The problem is, deep sleep isn’t really the best music genre for the Amazon Music experience.
In fact, the Amazon music service only offers two tracks that are deep sleep: the popular “The Grinch” from the musical film “The Room” and the new “Dark Sky” from a sci-fi thriller film called “The Man in the High Castle.”
The “The Night” is a more traditional deep sleep song.
“The night” sounds like it’s a fairly standard deep sleep tune.
“Dark sky” is more like a standard deep-sleep track, with a nice bassline and a subtle vocal.
“Night” is even more ambient and sounds a bit like an ambient jam.
The only other tracks Amazon Music offers are the “Bubblegum House” and “I’m With You.”
The first of these is actually pretty chill.
You can hear a gentle bassline on the track and a slightly softer, ambient vibe that sounds like you’re being held.
The second track, “The Day,” is the same as the first track, but it’s definitely a little darker.
Both tracks sound a bit too much like an “alternative ambient” track.
You end up being more “deeply” immersed in the music than you should be, and the sound quality isn’t very good.
The lack of quality doesn’t stop with the music.
Amazon Music also doesn’t offer any audio controls, so you can’t change the volume, mute or change the song’s artist.
The rest of the music is pretty much the same, which is a problem for people who want to chill out and listen with the help of Amazon Music.
Amazon isn’t the only music service to offer a deep- sleep playlist, either.
The Verge found that Spotify offers two deep sleep tracks, “Lucky” and a different one called “Vivid,” which has a similar bassline, but is less intense.
You’ll also find two other deep sleep songs on Spotify’s own site.

Amazon is offering “The Dark Sky” and an ambient version of “The Morning” for $9.99, with the latter being a free download.
Amazon says these tracks are meant for those who don’t like deep sleep but prefer ambient music.
You get two tracks and no controls, but there’s no way to switch between them.
The other track, Dark Sky, is $2.99 per month for three months and is available on both iTunes and the Spotify website.
You’re able to download the full Amazon Music catalog for free from Amazon’s site.
The company doesn’t recommend people download the whole catalog, but the playlist below gives you a quick overview of the tracks available for free.
Amazon’s music service also offers a “deep-sleep playlist” that’s basically an audio-only version of the Spotify playlist above.
You won’t be able to switch back and forth between them, but you can still use the Spotify service to listen to them.
You only get two songs and no control over them, and they’re both ambient tracks.
You may be able, however, to change the settings to turn them off or turn them up a bit.
Amazon offers the two deep-sleeved tracks as a free-trial and also has a “sleep” mode that lets people get up to three hours of sleep a night.
You still have to pay for the whole service.
Amazon doesn’t have an official timetable for when Amazon Music will be available in the U.S., but the company says that it will be up and running in “about two weeks.”
