AllMusic Review by

Mecano were an electronic pop act from Spain who rose to fame in the 1980s as the nation's new wave music scene was at its peak. While Mecano were significant players in Spain's Movida MadrileƱa community, their influence was broad, and this collection finds a dozen artists shining a new light on the group's tunes. Chill N' Mecano: A Chill Out Tribute to Mecano includes 12 of Mecano's biggest hits performed in a laid-back style dominated by acoustic instruments and glossy washes of electronic sound, revealing the strength of the melodies as they're given a fresh approach.
