Format: Audio CD
This product contains 3cds in beautiful and robust packaging. You get both of the original albums ('the facts and the dreams' and 'voices from the dust bowl') along with a 3rd CD of remixes, both Fragile State remixes and remixes of Fragile State tunes by industry heavyweights like 4Hero, Future Loop Foundation and Digitonal.

I've separated this review into two parts:

1) If you don't own any Fragile State music

Fragile State produce beautiful and funky chilled out goodness. Their tunes have a sweeping orchestral feel to them yet contain funky keyboard effects and beats which keep you nodding your head along to the tunes. Although largely instrumental (there's voice effects, but no real vocals) it's a very uplifting album and always picks me up when I'm feeling low or drained. In case you're put off by the moniker of a 'chill-out' album let me reassure you that although the album is chilled each track is unique and different and both of their original albums are jam packed full of unique flavours and textures. Insanely listenable!

2) If you already own one or both of the fragile state albums

Then this is still an essential purchase for the remixes CD which is NOT simply a gimmick CD or bonus CD. It plays just like the missing 3rd fragile state album - full of effects and samples that you recognise but put together in tunes that are new and fresh. Stand out tracks include the digitonal remix and the alucidnation remix. Both of these are superb. None of the remixes are heavy or house influenced and all of them stay true to the fragile state ethos of funky chilled out goodness!

In short - an essential purchase for anyone who doesn't mind the finer points of chill out music.

3 CDs of chilled slightly ambient funkiness; fantastic value; I'd never heard of these guys but now I have I will look out for more (is there more?); this is the sort of stuff I just have playing all the time in the house/car, love that big phat relaxed cool sound they create throughout (everyone's clearly wearing Ray Bans); excellent stylish packaging too (where's the fun in downloads?)

check out the Mellotron near start of CD2 (or is it digitally created? no matter, it's a nostalgic sound)

CD2 is all you'll ever need for your chill medication

26 05 13: some vendors appear a little ambitious in their pricing of this item!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's really sophisticated lounge music and one my favorite compilations of all time 7 Mar. 2015
By Willie Sanford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's really sophisticated lounge music and one my favorite compilations of all time. Like the viewer before me I got this with the idea of the Barney Fade track and then found so much more to like. You can stream it on TIDAL music service to see if it's your bag, baby.
