Water Music's Midnight Lounge is another middling assortment of downtempo tracks intended to satiate tired feet after a long night spent on the dance floor. It says so on the back of the disc: "Musically, you just need to chill out for a while in the phat lounge chair that sits in the corner of the club's Chill Out room." And then there's the track listing; for every remotely familiar artist present, there are three virtual unknowns, and most everything is free of any kind of quality. Some of the better tracks here: Rae & Christian's "Not Just Everybody (Atjazz Flugelhorn Remix)," De Phazz's "Café Coca," and Slop Shop (aka Brian Eno collaborator J. Peter Schwalm)'s "Transzendenz, Express (Sensorama Remix)."
