I Like It!

"You never can tell what you'll get your hands into when you buy Christmas "Chill" or "Remixed" music, but for some reason, I decided to take a chance with this one, and I'm so happy i did!
It contains 2 CDs, one extremely tranquil, what our family calls "Sleepy Music" it's not something I would play all day long, but something nice to turn on right before bed. It's so tranquil it'll put you to sleep for sure!
The second CD is a little more upbeat, but still provides a chill. Saxophone renditions of songs like Winter Wonderland and Frosty the Snowman make great background music while eating dinner or talking with the family.
The professionalism of the whole thing isn't great, but as far as Christmas chillout albums go, it's the best I've seen."
Technically a Chillout CD - But in Reality, Incorrectly Name

"A "chillout" CD (album) these days is really correctly identified as dance tracks with light beats to cool off (chill) after a night of heavy house or trance - true chillout songs can range from folktronica like EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL or DIDO to trance tracks with slower beats - this CD is really not in that genre.
This CD is really in the relaxation/background/"muzak" genre. And that's fine if that's what you want but it is not a proper "chillout" CD. For dance CD buyers looking for a real chillout CD to close out the evening - this is NOT that kind of CD and you will sorely be disappointed in this unoffensive background music CD.
If you're programming music for a quiet store on a Sunday morning, this will offend no one and it is that kind of chillout CD but for those looking for a true chillout CD - this is the wrong one to get."
