    If you’re into Exotica/easy listening/lounge, this is essential. Sound Quality and dynamic range are both excellent and the song choice is perfect. Make your drink of choice, preferably with an umbrella as garnish, relax, and enjoy.

      Considering the high-definition 20-bit digital transfer, this is the best and prominent collection ever imagined by Brad Benedict, most known as the man behind the excellent Ultra Lounge Series.
