I bought this in high hopes, having read the glowing review. Obviously tastes differ, but compilations are usually a fun way to discover new songs, new artists, and generally widen your playlist. Sadly, this is not one of those. While it started well, with a nice retro vibe, things fell away from this promising start with only 3 or 4 tracks worth the listening time. One or two tracks only qualify as soul muzak I'm afraid to say. I'm a great fan of the Soul Lounge series, and hoped this would be as good, but if you like Soul Lounge, don't get this.
