Good tracks but horrible mixing
on 10 November 2003
The tracks on this album are great, they really are chilled out and fit in well with the style of the complilation series. Theres something for everyone and in particular for me the highlights were the 'Love's Theme - Love Unlimited Orchestra', 'Walking In Rhythm - The Blackbyrds' and 'Summer Hot - Curtis Mayfield'. However, the way some of them are 'mixed' together really detracts from the album as a whole.
Having read the other reviews below I was encouraged by the comments about the tracks and paid little attention to the complaints about the lack of mixing.
The album would have been fine if the tracks died away rather than being flung in abruptly into each other. Dont get me wrong some tracks do slip in together but others are just horrendously switched mid song which is very unpleasant listening.
All in all the album is worth buying for the tracks alone but be warned about the mixing
