Are We Drowning in Noise?

I was at my favorite food coop last night.  I had a lively discussion with the manager about the volume of the music.  I told him that at times it was so loud that I couldn’t concentrate on my grocery list and just wanted to leave.  He was a good listener and said that he would turn the volume down and bring it to someone’s attention.  They were very busy and I did not give it too much more thought and went about my business.  I was standing in the vitamin aisle and all of a sudden my entire body relaxed and just melted into the floor.  They had turned down the music.  Then something magical happened.  I could hear this cacophony of human voices and the sounds of a bustling market.  It really was magical.

Are the sounds of life drowning in noise?
