It May Be Volume 5, But it's Not Worth 5 Stars

"Ambient Compilations are far too common nowadays. Very easy to collect an album's worth of tracks at any given time thanks to the thriving Ibiza music scene (where Cafe del Mar lives). So what makes a great album different from an OK album. Generally just track selection, but a great album is usually mixed which none of the Cafe del Mar compilations are. Regardless they do put out some decent ambient/chillout albums, and after collecting a few, one can make their own favorite chillout mix.
This is the fifth installment of the still going strong series. Not bad, but not great. I can't consider any of the tracks as phenomenal, but I do think there are a couple of duds. "Tout Est Bleu" [Original Ame Strong S.A. Remix] and "Talking With Myself" '98 [Canny Remix] receive the dud awards for this album.

"Volume 5 isn't a bad mix, but is definitely not the finest of the Cafe Del Mar series. Volumes 4, 6 and 7 are far more relaxing and have better flow than this volume. Nonetheless, not bad for background music if you are entertaining and not intently listening to the album."
