I have followed the Late Night Tales series over the last 10 years and was waiting in anticipation for this latest release, compiled by the magnificent Cinematic Orchestra. Finally the wait is over and I have to say that this is an absolute masterpiece and one of the strongest in the series.

From intimate torch songs to swinging jazz, via lush strings and orchestration to the intricacies of modern electronica, the Cinematic's take us on a journey through the music that has inspired them, whilst dipping a cap to some of their contemporary peers. By doing so, they have also managed to reflect their unique sound that is hard to pin-point, but also present in the work of these varied artists: a wonderful balance between laid-back and sweeping but with a subtle underlying brooding tension. The result is an epic and varied journey through some of the finest music by some of the greatest artists of all time.

From the opening track, Flying Lotus' `Auntie's Harp' recalls the opening harp strings of `All That You Give' from their `Every Day' LP, while Thom Yorke's `Black Swan' would have sat comfortably nestled within their `Ma Fleur' album. Elsewhere, Sebastien Tellier's well known masterpiece `La Ritournelle' and Bjork's Homogenic-era `Joga', showcase some of the finest music under the wide umbrella of `chillout': all loping beats and heart-tugging strings that make you feel like you're soaring above the clouds! More obscure noodles from the likes of Burial and Imogen Heap also make a welcome appearance.

Although it's taken a few listens to get into the flow of this collection, I find myself now playing it to death. Despite there being a few songs that I could do without, I tend to skip through these, but on the whole it's a really good listen.

I've never been a Radiohead/Thom Yorke or a Bjork fan, but I love both their songs and Terry Callier's "You're Going To Miss Your Candyman" is a monsterous groove where you are bound to discover your "thang", whatever that may be.

Ommissions aside it's well worth a listen or adding to your collection!

This I think is the one compilation that all LNT compilers have to beat... any compiler who manages to put Sebastian Tellier's epic 'La Ritournelle',Burial's dingy 'Dog Shelter' and Thom Yorke's harping 'Black Swan' on a mix and make it work and feel blended and consistent is worth a listen. The few LNT that come close I think are Trentmollers and Airs contribution, but as a whole the LateNighTales series is by far the best series around, excellent for exposing you to new music that where else would you hear.

Get this one and then get the rest!

I am enjoying this compilation/mix, I love the Cinematic Orchestra and so it's nice to hear some of their influences etc alongside their work...however, I am left a bit disappointed...The mix itself works very well but it would have been nice to have more of DJ Food ' Living Beats' which, at 16 secs, is little more than a link. Same goes for tCO own 'Restaurant' track, but my biggest disappointment is 'South American Getaway', which works well as it is but I was expecting it to get to the 'up beat' section of the song (not unreasonable as that is the section in the clip on this very page!), had they managed that it would have been genius in my opinion.

Up there with the best of the Late Night Tales, a return to form if ever there was one. Such a well crafted mix, some really beautiful stuff on here and some real funky things too. I have about 10 of the late night series and would put this in my top 3 now. The first Groove Armada Late Night mix would be number 1, but thats an exceptional mix and hard to beat. Some real care has gone into this one. The final track where cinematic orchestra do their cover version is really stunning too.
