AllMusic Review by

This schizophrenic hybrid of French raps, chilled-out beats, cool jazz, and deep house seems so scattered that it shouldn't work, but somehow it does. Julee Cruise's mellow croon drifts into Org Lounge's twittering bass groove effortlessly, and Urban Chill's house-y French hip-hop lounges easily with De-Phazz's cinematic "Jazz Music." While this compilation might make perfect cocktail music in the background of a party, it isn't quite strong enough to hold the listener's complete attention, but that may not be the point.
