This 'chillout' album left me feeling frosty!
on 30 August 2001
I don't know who is responsible for compiling this album, but whoever it is needs to seriously consider their vocation. Tracks 1 & 2 get you into a relaxed state, only for you to be rudely awakened by 'Missing' (Everything But The Girl) - it's a great track, but completely out of place and too upbeat for this kind of album. And so it begins... you're chilling out to a mellow track and then get slapped across the face by something that makes you want to go out clubbing. I agree with the other reviewers' sentiments: that this CD has a load of great tracks on it, but they're completely mismatched. I give it two stars because the different musical styles meet my tastes, but they could have got rid of half the tracks and made it a single CD chillout album.
