Album Notes
Personnel: Hilde Drange, Yukimi Nagano (vocals).Audio Remixer: Tatsuo Sunaga.Illustrator: Angela Adams .Water Music's Ultimate Lounge is fairly eclectic, offering two discs of downtempo, lounge, and acid jazz that have a little more character than the label's usual fare. Disc one features Llorca & Nicole Graham's "Indigo Blues," a surprisingly kinetic, acoustic-based track; Montefiori Cocktail's "On a Clear Day," which, with its crooning vocals and bossa nova rhythms, is the closest the collection comes to offering genuine lounge music; and Tosca's slinky "Mango di Bango." The Dining Rooms' "Speak into the Microphone" and Sian's "What's Your Name" are more typical of the Water Music sound, but still have enough jazz and lounge elements to fit in with the more distinctive tracks. Disc two continues the collection's bossa nova kick with A Banda Cerrone's "Rimini Samba" before seguing into "Cholita" by Oversoul 7, a group that features former members of Supreme Beings of Leisure and continues that band's hazy brand of jazzy electronica. Mr. Scruff's "Champion Nibble" is one of the best -- and liveliest -- tracks on the collection, mixing funky guitars and brass with witty organ rolls. Other highlights include Alacran's tango-inflected "Refleco de Luna," Xploding Plastix's "Happy Jizz Girls," and Monlope's "Midnight Cowboy," which sounds like Ennio Morricone dabbling in trip-hop. Overall, Ultimate Lounge fits in with the rest of Water Music's stylish background music aesthetic, but occasionally it offers a little more than just musical wallpaper. ~ Heather Phares

Seller Terms

Automatic Cancellation Policy: Orders will be cancelled if payment is not received within 10 days.
FIRST THINGS FIRST: If you plan on pulling anything shady at anytime during our transaction, then DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM ME! So sick of awful people taking advantage of the great opportunity this site affords us music fans... PLEASE don't abuse it (or me)!

SECOND OF ALL: Any shipment to any address in CHILE, BRAZIL OR MEXICO *MUST* be shipped via Priority Mail International Service!! PAYPAL sucks, and I refuse to be held accountable for a corrupt & incompetent postal system in your part of the world. You can blame your postal system & dishonest customers for this, not me! See below for shipping rates.

AND LASTLY: If you make an offer on any item in my store, it is with the understanding that there will be no further discount or refund if there is any disagreement on the condition of the item once you receive it. I price all items fairly & grade based on the VISUAL condition of the item, so if you offer a price lower than the listed price & I accept it, then you can consider that "discount" to be your refund if any condition issues arise once you receive it. Few items are actually PLAY GRADED, and if they are, it will be stipulated in the item condition comments. You can't ask for a discount TWICE.. it doesn't work that way around here. Go be cheap somewhere else...

Also, since most jewel cases are replaceable I only rate the inserts (front and back), so if the jewel case has shelf wear, price sticker residue, etc., it will not be factored into grading. The exception will be non standard jewel cases such as colored cases, digipaks, doubles and the like.
