This album is a soothing collection of sounds that lull and drift and are gentle on the ear. The fusion of familiar popular tracks with old ones can't help but set you at ease. A bit of jazz, a little pop, tempered with instrumental as well as ballad - this album makes for a perfect romantic evening or even a solitary one.
So, take that cool drink to your chair in the balcony or that loved one to the comfortable couch, whatever - and let this music help you get rid of the cobwebs in your head. This soundtrack also makes excellent listening in long drives and endless traffic.
"She", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "When You Say Nothing At All" by Elvis Costello, Bill Withers and the Lighthouse Family, the Spencer Davis Group and Boyzone respectively, are simply unbeatable.
