AllMusic Review by

This inclusion in the ongoing Cafe Noir series does an excellent job of sticking to its subtitle, "Chill Out," since nearly every song here is incredibly laid-back and lush with soothing ornamentation. Groove Armada's "At the River" clearly stands out as the album's highlight, and every other song here sticks pretty close to that song in terms of style. Nothing else on here is quite on par with "At the River," but then again, that Groove Armada song is a bit of a classic in the realm of down-tempo electronica. Still, there are some nice moments over the course of this album, and it definitely proves successful as a soundtrack for chilling out.
