Various : 21st Century Chill Out

Necessary or evil? We're partial to CD3...



Ah, with all this chilling, you're spoiling us. Three CDs - entitled 'Sunset Café', 'Departure Lounge' and 'Coffee Shop' - mirror the three faces of chilling: global beats (aii!), world whoosh (double aii!), and some nice domestic feelgood music.

Necessary or evil? We're partial to CD3, with Midfield General's 'Reach Out' and Lambchop's 'Up With People' (Zero 7 remix). The rest is over-produced, tremulously sung, bad rainforest documentary soundtracking. Freezing in liquid nitrogen's too good for 'em.
