Similar to the preceding volumes, Chill Out Lounge, Vol. 3 features a number of laid-back electronica tracks compiled onto one disc by mostly unknown producers. The styles waver from dubby trip-hop and jazzy drum'n'bass to sleepy ambient and groovy house, with a little bit of everything in between. The variety of styles is refreshing and helps keep the disc interesting. The "chill out" vibe does get a bit lackluster after continuous listening, though. Listening to this disc from beginning to end can often be a bore, since the Water Music label is more recognized for its savvy marketing than its quality of music.
