AllMusic Review by

Cream Chilled Electronic is a three-disc compilation of relaxed, home-listening-friendly club music spanning a handful of dance styles across as many decades, though tracks from the ‘90s make up the bulk of the set. It’s technically mixed, albeit in a very subtle manner that has more to do with shrewd sequencing than clever beat matching. Many of the usual suspects are present; Primal Scream’s “Higher Than the Sun [Higher Than the Orb Mix],” Air’s "La Femme d’Argent,” DJ Shadow's “Midnight in a Perfect World,” and Zero 7’s “Polaris 7,” for instance. There are some pleasant surprises, too: FaltyDL's “Hip Love [Jamie XX Remix],” Faze Action's “In the Trees,” Aeroplane's “Superstar,” and New Order's “Elegia.” This is one of Cream's more enjoyable compilations.
