'Karma Collection' kicks off (predictably) with Jakatta's current cover hit of 'Ever So Lonely', and then hits you with a lovely sequence of Dave Pike's classic 'Mathar' (currently on the Jamie Oliver ad), Nitin Sawhney's sublime 'Sunset' and into Stereo MC's, Thievery Corporation and Massive Attack's mix of 'Mustt Mustt'. Special spotter points for including the snake song from 'The Jungle Book' sung by Susheela Raman, and for finding 90's Indie stars Ride's most cosmic moment in 'Rolling Thunder'. It then goes a bit 'sonic cathedral' with Marta Sebestyn, Moby and the Aled Jones On Ecstacy vibe of Dusted, before riding out with mellow masters Zero 7.
Disc 2 is a bit deeper, with the odd Celtic moment thrown in (Clannad repositioned as veteran chill out masters - whatever next?); and has some sweet simple pleasures with Grant Lee Phillips and Horace Andy on 1 Giant Leap's 'Racing Away' and Bjork's barely there ethereal presence on 'Harm Of Will'. All this comes in a lovely red strokey tactile box, with pretty gold embossed letters. Will definitely look good on that Heal's coffee table.
In conclusion, if you are a real fan of global beats, chances are you've probably got a lot of these tunes already, possibly on other comps. However, if you don't want to pay £30 for a French import; and you just want to relax to some sensual and seductive sounds from around our planet, or you are looking to turn on a friend to something which is definitely fresher and cooler than Another Bloody Chillout CD, shell out now amigos!
I would recommend this CD, its great top boost your mood on all thise rainy summer days you know we are going to have! Also great for post clubbing sessions! Well worth the money!
On top of this I'm a Taoist and love all manner of spiritual activities in order to more deeply understand the universe.
However, even I am at a loss when it comes to thinking of Spiritual Chillout songs. Is there such a thing? Can any song be deeply meaningful while also being popular and only 3 minutes long?
Well, this album does its best with what material is available and is a modest success. There were definite moments during the album where it fulfills its premise of being "Spiritually Enlightening Chillout" and (if you avoid the temptation to press the 'Next Track' button) then it does begin to flow through you and let spiritual feelings rise in your chest.
There is one issue though, and the best way of describing it is by analogy. In the Classic Disney film Aladdin, Aladdin's cave is found to be full to the brim with Gold. However (if I recall my films correctly) this Gold is illusory as, when picked up, it turns instantly to sand and dust, just like a mirage.
The same is true of this album - the album works well in its premise and appears real but, if you try and grasp any of the tracks, they turn to dust in your hands. Put simply, none of the tracks are any good on their own.
So, we are left with an album that is a good effort at something that I think is exceedingly difficult to do, namely create a Spiritual Chillout compilation. And, having experienced both Spiritual and Chillout CD's, I think the two aren't meant to work together anyway as one is glib and the other is deep.
As a result, I would recommend the two separately in the form of two of my favourite CD's.
Firstly I would recommend Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao as an aid to Spiritual peace.
Second, I would recommend Moon Safari as unquestionably the best Chillout album ever penned.
As for Spirtual Chillout? The nearest you would get is a Nitin Sawney Album, Moby (doesn't feature on here, even though he is a deeply spiritual guy) and Leftism. Even then, these things are limited and slightly Oxymoronic.
Maybe one day some genius will fuse the two - here's hoping!
