AllMusic Review by

Innovative U.K. electronica outfit Nightmares on Wax contributes an excellent disc to the Late Night Tales series, offering a fine mix set that keeps with the funky, downtempo vibe for which the group is known. Elements of jazz, soul, hip-hop, reggae, and electronica rear their heads here on tunes as ostensibly different as Quincy Jones's "Listen (What Is It)" to King Kooba's spacey "California Suite" to Dusty Springfield's groove-driven "Listen." Yet N.O.W.'s sequencing and seamless transitions make this a smooth, satisfying, and eminently listenable experience.
