AllMusic Review by

In this fifth edition of the highly successful Mushroom Jazz saga, Mark Farina picks up right where he left off with volumes one through four. The formula remains the same: lush laid-back acid jazz with a twist of deep house and hip-hop to create a disc-long excursion that is immediately accessible for home listening, relaxation, or the early hours of a big night out. Contributions from downtempo anchors DJ Spinna and J. Boogie start things off right, and inclusions from Jurassic 5's Nu Mark and hip-hop legend Pete Rock spice things up nicely. It a beautifully eclectic mix that may very well be the best of the series -- until the next one, that is.
