Product Description

Product Description

KEEP AN OPEN MIND
Many of the reviews below try to compare this album to what their authors conceive to be chillout, referring to the likes of cafe del mar and euphoria. In essence these releases stay true to the classical definition of "chillout" as a genre, without paying homage to a huge amount of high quality downtempo music which doesn't fit into their little boxes. This album puts all preconceptions to oneside and re-defines our understanding of chillout. Please listen with an open mind and I promise you will not be disappointed. This is a beautiful record.

Amazon.co.uk

Having pretty much cornered the market for great dance compilations with Clubber Guides, Trance Nations, Annuals and the like, Ministry Of Sound took a step away from the dancefloor with its first major chillout compilation The Chillout Session. And as with their more uptempo assortments, the quality of the tracks is superlative. From the subtle downtempo beats and pieces of Jakatta's "American Dream" to the Ibizan sunset vibes of York's "The Awakening" to horizontal classics like Lemon Jelly's "In The Bath" and Leftfield's "Melt", you can almost picture the lava lamp steadily bubbling away in the corner of the room. It's not all instrumental tracks, either, Alex Gopher's "The Child" and Fatboy Slim and Macy Gray's collaboration on "Demons" both pop up to add a little bit of late-night soul. The only problem is who gets up to put the second CD on... --Helen Marquis

Don't be intimidated by the reviews commenting that "this might not actually be chillout rather than...". Chillout is not just the Cafe del Mar complilations and this album is definitely not just a bunch of tunes that were selected primarily for the reason that they were previously unknown to the most of us, but a beatifully arranged 2CD set of mellow tracks that will easily put you in a relaxed state. This might not be the epitomy of chillout (try Groove Armada,Back To Mine and Bonobo,Animal Magic for that) but I only wish it's sequel was as good. So if you 're considering buying it, go ahead. Oh and push the skip button on "Demons". It ruins the whole effect :)

This is really a top quality CD. It is well mixed and has tracks you could just lie back and die for. Outstanding tracks for me are 'No Ordinary Morning', '6 Underground' and 'Sexual'. The first CD is laid back and has been played many times at for background music at my house! Do yourself a favour and buy this CD and a set of quality headphones and lose yourself!!

CD2 the second best house music cd I own out of 1000 cd's. CD1 not too bad, but the reason it is 5/5 as thsi time for me was full of amazing chillout classics so it goes down in my classic vault. The CD2 is literally the most amazing sound for the summer and I have listened to that cd so many times whilst in Spain. Even if you don't ever listen to the first cd get it for the second one I am telling you it is remarkably well mixed and chosen tracks.

Not a good choice, I am disappointed. Nowhere close to the originators of Cool Chill, Cafe del Mar who are still the best. If you want more modern Chill go for the rather expensive Chillhouse MIx collections.

I really liked this CD. It is not too chilled out that you feel like faling asleep but rather it's nice and mellow and perfect for chilling. Also very good on a long journey in the car or as background music at a dinner party. I am a big fan of dance music, and the chill out mixes, and I feel that this CD is one that I would definitely put on my top 10 list! Super for relaxing on the beach also! Bring it with you on hols.

If you like dance music, but also something a bit mellow, this is the CD for you. Packaged onto two CD's, I found the first disc to hold the best tracks. However, the second still didn't disappoint! Sit back, play and relax. I also found it excellent to listen to while walking home from work. Excellent unwinder!

Anyone comparing this to other, more high octane dance compilations is missing the point. I bought this with the hope that it would at least match the excellent Euphorias 1 and 2 for quality (The rest are mediocre at best) but also do the whole 'chilled' thing as it was meant be done. Many have tried and failed, this is far removed from those that have tried before. Simply put, I play this a lot. If you like proper chilled stuff get this. If you're lucky enough to have discovered Groove Armada and loved it as I do then DEFINIELY get this.

I think the some of the above reviewers must have some strange definition of the word chillout, if they don't think this music fits this category.
If you wanna chill you're not going to go wrong with this in the player. It has some great, interesting remixes. There's not a track on either CD that I don't like. Having been disappointed with the gutless music from the big chillout labels I've been turned away from buying these kinda albums, but I'm glad i made an exception for this one.
It may not be the run-of-the-mill music you can expect from your average chillout album, but it's a cut above the rest
Get it :) (and i don't work for the ministry!!)
