Seein that chill out section is missing 1,2,3,4 and 6 volume and since I have 4 and 6, I decided to review them cause they are pretty good collection of ambient tracks. Both discs have been pretty well chosen but the songs sometimes seem too randomly compiled. They could made different arrangement but the music is what it counts. First disc is starting with very deep atmospheric ambient by SUN Project - DEEPER AND DEEPER. I like this track very much, it is one of the better ambient songs by them. Next is short but very effective melodic song MEMORY CHILD, another atmospheric piece that fits good after previous track. Third one is THINGS CAN CHANGE, slightly different and progressed style with some guitars, making very decent continuation of compilation. FEEL THE CHAKRA LOVE is the only one weak on first disc, it has some nice mellow melodies but it is in fact a bit cheesy. SERUM X is great, one of the better ones on first dic, psychedelic and melodic with very good arrangements, very mature sounding. IN SEARCH OF BUDDHA is pretty good but it could have been done better, it just misses something. JOURNEY THROUGH NATURE is exactly what it describes with sounds of nature and some tribal structures spreaded all around. Then comes HYDRO LAPSE, another decent song that also lacks something to be great. But after that is brilliant SKUNKED ON PLANET DUB, third best here, very mellow, smooth, dub by master Nick Barber. He really know how to create dub soun ds, shame he is not doing it more often. LUXOR is amazing, travelling track with lots of effects and trippy images hidden. SPOOK is very good too, having dreamy soundscapes and images but a little bit short.

Then comes second disc, that is even better than the first one. WALKING HOME is very good track, takes you somewhere very delicately, having very angelic pads and rustic sounds. CREATOR is another Chi-A.D. masterpiece. One of the best on whole copmpilation, highly hypnotic, melodic, trippy and atmospheric too...stunning ! SYRIGE is more urban kind of ambience and it just slides with some primal melodies having sample from Lost Highway ! Hah ! VOODOO LAND is very good tribal hypnotic track but then comes SPIRITUAL LAND, second best on second disc and very long - almost 16 minutes of long, driving journey, simple perfection, and it sounds like they cut it for the actual disc time, so it means that is even longer, huhh, I can't tell you what enchanting effect it has. MUNDIS IMAGINALUS all of you already know and you know that is another Simon masterpiece. IBAR is pretty decent track but it is the weakest here. CROSS OVER THE SEA reminds a little bit on Enigma with those rhythms and it is pretty good. FORGIVENESS TO HATE is also pretty good, being very lyrical and enchanting sounding almost like new age but in a good way, but then comes third best on second disc AFTER THE RAIN, mesmerising Jaia's piece of floaty, dreamy ambience, stunning ! So, all in all, this is very good collection of different ambient from around the world. Everyone that are seriously into ambience should have this....CD 1 - 8/10 CD 2 - 9/10
