AllMusic Review by

Cannily resembling an entry in the extensive series of Bargrooves double-disc sets, Lounge Grooves is comprised of two DJ mixes that encompass the same sort of laid-back, assembly-line house music as the myriad Bargrooves sets. It's a bit more contrived, though, without quite as much discretion in the music selection and without quite as much craftwork in regard to the packaging. Still, it gets the job done, offering two-plus hours of bumping, middle-of-the-road house, smoothly faded from one track to the next. Very serviceable background music it is, ideal for the lesser discerning hair salons, shoe stores, and coffeehouses out there. You're recommended to pass it by, in other words -- unless you prefer your dance music to be as commodified as a cup of Starbucks Breakfast Blend coffee, that is.
