I'm a big fan of the Ministry of Sound's more laid-back collections, and the Chillout series is a great way to be introduced to 'intelligent' artists and styles you won't often hear elsewhere. But this album is a long way short of some of the earlier efforts, and I question whether many of the tracks are Chillout at all.

The best Chillout tracks are a downbeat blend of electronic drum & bass, samples and novelty synthesiser noises with more traditional accoustic instruments and vocals, in just the right proportions to send a mellow ripple through your body. There is almost none of that here.

It's not that they aren't fairly decent music, rather they just don't belong to this genre: if you feel yourself wanting to dance to it, then it ain't Chillout. So many tracks are overtly pop, R&B or disco (Leo Sayer's Thunder in My Heart, for goodness sake.) And while on the one hand the thumping baseline of Be My Friend (among others) definitely didn't make me feel chilled, neither did Katie Mehlua wailing about all those bicycles in China. Just because it's slow and she sounds miserable, doesn't make it Chillout. And a special mention for that awful novelty 'JCB Song' - what that's doing here I just don't know.

There are a few gems, such as La Ritournelle, Dayvan Cowboy, and So In Love With You, but there's too much rough and not enough diamonds. For me the MoS series peaked in 2003 with "Late Night Sessions", and I recommend you buy that album instead of this one.

Seeing that this follows after the excellent Chillout Session 2, i have to say i'm not impressed with this follow up. There are way too many tunes lifted straight from the previous 2 albums, and its not like there is a lack of quality chillout music to choose from!
MoS also seem to have a knack for choosing rubbish remixes of certain songs on their compilations, such as Jakatta's American Dream (the definitive version of which appears on Chilled Out Euphoria) and Bent's Swollen. Why they decided to go with the remix they did rather than the totally brilliant (and in my opinion more chilled) Dusted remix is beyond me.
On the other hand, it's not all bad. If you don't own Chillout Session 1 or 2 from MoS buy this by all means, but if you own either one of them go and get Chilled Out Euphoria which is superior in almost every way.

I began purchasing the MOS Chillout Sessions last year and to quite honest, they never fail to impress.

This new album in the series is another fantastic compilation of soothing sounds to help recover from a night of MOS Annual / Clubbers Guide tracks, but above all is ideal to have playing on a sleepy afternoon in the sun or with your book on the couch.

The album begins with one of the fantastic acoustics tracks from Jose Gonzalez which sets the tone for the rest of the first CD.

It's not all mellow though. There are a series of ups and downs from Katie Melua to Badly Drawn Boy and then onto a remix of a classic Jakatta track just to really stir the mood.

CD 2 changes the tone of the whole chillout theme with the producers obviously hoping that you're beginning to wake or at least stir from the night before with Mylo setting the mark with the first track. A little more upbeat but equally is my favourite Jamiroquai track from their latest album, Seven Days In Sunny June remixed to a slightly faster beat.

As the CD moves on, you really begin to get into the spirit for the next night with Bob Sinclair and his Love Generation and then Kaskade.

The Chillout Session finally ends with a fantastic remake of the 90's Roxette classic by DHT, Listen to Your Heart.

Overall, this album made me feel good. Really good. It combined new and old with remixes that blended in with some of the best new material of this year.

I thoroughly recommend Chillout Sessions 2006 and if you enjoy this, I hope you will also enjoy the 2005 edition and Chillout Sessions Vol. 7 and 8 also from the MOS.

Having giving this album a good deal more listenin gover the summer, I concluded that whilst not the best chillout album ever, it certainly is driftingly beautiful. Whether you've come back from a hard night's clubbing or are just crashing out on your sofa on a hot August afternoon, this CD is blissful and sublime. I prefer the second CD as it is more 'lifted' and 'open'. The tracks just seem to flow and let you fall asleep to beautiful haunting tunes.
CD 1 is by no means dull and is more moving and rhythmic but nevertheless, a compliment to the second.
Apology and at off to MoS. I hope 2004 is even better

After beginning to lose faith in MOS this CD is fantastic. Great mix of chillout tunes. Great for summer. I live in spain and maybe is lost being listed to back home. Goes great with summer weather, sandy beaches, cool drinks and summer evenings. Some tracks could be considered fillers but the majority are solid.

This is obviously similar in many respects to the Chillout Sessions 1 & 2. This might put off people off buying it, but it really shouldn't. If you own both the Chillout Sessions, it's pretty to safe to assume that you like this type of music. This Cd does share some of the tracks with the Chillout Sessions, which is another thing to consider, but there are many new tracks on there as well. Anyway, as all the MoS albums take the best tracks you're bound to get some duplicates, but there are like 34+ tracks that you probably won't have, and that is definately worth it, especially as you have different mixes. Overall this album is great, and really does remind you of the sunset isle. If you own a lot of Chillout music it might be worth just seeing how many of the tracks you allready own, but apart from that I would definately recommend this to any fan of Ibiza. Not MoS's best album by any means, but a average MoS Cd is still better than most...
