5.0 out of 5 stars Chilled and Funky Poolside Lounging, 15 July 2003
This review is from: Es Vive Ibiza: Excessively Cool Poolside Listening (Audio CD)
Amazing, incredible, Smooth - These words are good but they just don't capture the vibe of Es Vive.
'Chilled and Funky Poolside Lounging' - Now there is a term that really paints the right picture.
From the very first bars of 'Can't they be good' by Fenomenon' - you are given that rare quality-chilled vibe and this continues through the next 4 tracks (including At Night - Shakedown mix & READY by Charles Webster - WOW!!)
The production this compilation is of a very high standard.
Then it gently gets funkier and funkier until Soulweekender.
CD 1 is a triumph and easily stands on its own.
CD2 starts where CD1 left off.
Again this is excellent - Happiness if free - Onda Music.
The tempo is kept up for the next 4 tracks.
What's On your mind by Mr. O is a SPECIAL number and funky in the extreme without being hard.
(remember we are poolside lounging here)
From here the funk remains but it gets gentler and mellower
Track after track - chilled and funky.
Amazing.
Till you are hit with the intro to Twisted by the pool - FAC 15.
At the end of this track there is only one thing to do - Find CD1 and put it right back on.
There are numerous IBIZA chill albums out there and it is hard to choose and you have to beware of fakes with nice CD covers.
This is one designed to reflect the mood of a particularly chilled place.
It is selected by Mark Doyle who has a GREAT track record doing this. The tracks perpetuate the mood.
Do not be deceived - don't fall for cheaper (or more expensive imitations) GET Es Vive!!
I have given this as a present several times and have recommended it to friends who have bought it - ALL have thanked me afterwards and are
amazed that so much quality music is to be found in one package.
Buy it - find some sun and a pool (simulate if you must) and ENJOY some 'Poolside Lounging'.
If you like this - try Winter Chill 4, and Es Vive Ibiza 2003
