Down & Out features a number of electronica producers exploring different variations on popular electronica styles like ambient, trip-hop, and lounge. None of the producers are particularly well-known or acknowledged within the electronica community, so it's perhaps not that much of a surprise that their music sounds a bit generic and bland. There are just way too many other electronica-themed compilation albums out there to bother with something like this. You're best off skipping albums like this and heading for compilations with more proven artists and a more consistent style of electronica.
