There's absolutely nothing wrong with this release. I have heard at many times at countless restaurants and bars in San Francisco and it's just a classic. You have all of the great downbeat/nu lounge artists on here including: Thievery Corporation, Dining Rooms, Butti 49, Alex Cortiz, J-Walk, Troublemakers and the list goes on. This album is mostly instrumental and it's the best for chilling at home or for a cocktail party.

The album starts out nice and slow with M. Dupont with Dining Rooms. M. Dupont has that very cinematic French flair and it's quite nice. Follows right up with Troublemakers Fatigue Universelle another French themed downbeat track. Right after we head to a more funky, 70's soul sound with Soul Vibration by J-Walk. The smooth soul sound sticks around with Smooth by Alex Cortiz. This track is quite nice and funky. The next track is another French cinematic sounding track. This time it's J-walk again with French Letter.

Skyscraper by Kinobe is an instrumental track having some 60's hippy sounds to it. It's very groovy and funky at the same time. One of my favorite tracks on here is Kalas by Butti 49. It's got the 60's sound all freshened up for the 2000's. It's quite nice and fun to listen to. Next up is Thievey Corporation displaying their trademark sound with Samba Tranquillle. It's a great track and it sounds nice every listen.

The rest of the CD takes a real mellow turn for the late nite chill crowd. It's nice to wind down a party with.

This CD is well worth the investment of fifteen dollars if you are at all into nu lounge and downbeat. It's a classic!
