AllMusic Review by

Water Music's Excursions: A Journey into Chill Out is a mediocre and hastily assembled overview of downbeat and trip-hop from the early '00s, including tracks from Slop Shop ("Kleiner Man"), T Spigot ("With Your Body"), Rae & Christian ("Vai Viver a Vida [Tom and Joyce 80's Funk Remix]"), Dub Tractor ("Slow Cushion"), Yonderboi ("Outro"), Sundayman ("Iambic Seahorses"), Mind Over MIDI ("Echo"), and David Grumel ("Lifestyle"). None of these selections played a significant factor in laid-back club music, but as a whole, the disc makes for mildly stimulating background music. As a grouping of second- and third-tier producers, it'll still prove to be a bit too dull for most tastes.
