"If you've ever seen a Cirque de Soleil show (chances are, there's one playing in your neighborhood - they're everywhere these days), you were no doubt blown away by the barrage of visual and musical experiences. Ever the marketers, those Cirque folks package up that cool, ethereal world music and sell it as souvenirs (it's cheaper than taking home a gymnast). And now they've repackaged some of their most popular tracks from all the Shows de Soleil, adding new club-friendly beats by great DJs like Thievery Corporation. It's a perfect fit and a lot cooler than some cheesy t-shirt with a scary clown on it."

"Of music. Whether you have this on in the background, are meeting it eye to eye, or have it up loud so it can pull you through its wanderments, this CD is extrordinarily representative of what we beleive lounge music to be.
I have a rather nice collection of lounge/dance/ambient, and all of it has its yea's and nay's. But this CD stands out on its own with its richness of sound, design, and the feeling that it trancends the traditions and peers of its genre.
DISCLAIMER: Please remmeber my review of this and any other CD is my opinion, and may not represent your choice in listening pleasure. Buy the CD anyways. It takes you to a lounge where you sip tropical drinks, and feel like you are far from home and in a place of great warmth."
