it's a solid collection for lovers of the genre..., November 30, 2005 By T. Griffin (USA)
Nowadays when I venture out to buy an actual CD, it's usually a box compilation of some sort. iTunes has become a godsend; but I still get excited at discovering a promising CD on the rack and just taking a chance on what's there. For me it's part of the great experience of being a music lover.
If you get into the more relaxed side of club music and electronica--nujazz, downtempo, whatever--this collection will grow on you, one track at a time. In typical 'box set' fashion, don't expect to love everthing here; but there are enough tight little grooves to make it worth the purchase.
4 for the price of 1, September 7, 2005 By DRYWASHER-BILL (LAS VEGAS, NEVADA)
There are places you can get the set for $24. If BarGrooves and jazz mix is your bag, City Lounge will fill the void. However, if you are looking for dance tunes, rhythm, beats that will get people up on the floor, this isn't it. I suppose the music would work best as background music (think KMart in a Bar Environment) while people are flirting with each other, concentrating on each others fleshy parts and sizes, and tanking Bombay and tequila.
Using it to pass time while stuck in traffic, or as a musical upper while on the way to work, isn't quite the goal of this sound. Be happy you bought the set of 4 rather than each one individually, as some tracks are better than others, and some CDs better than others, and maybe may make the $24 seem a justified purchase (vs. $74 or so).
Could be sexy enough music, but only if you are lying next to the other already naked and too lazy to get up and change the cd to something else...
