ESSENTIAL COLLECTION is an outstanding collection of timeless Pop and Rock hits refashioned into today’s hip Lounge/Downtempo style. These familiar songs, originally recorded by the biggest artists in the world, have been restyled into Cocktail Party anthems. Hear Norah Jones, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Bush, Depeche Mode, Green Day, U2, Coldplay, Nirvana, Madonna, Sinead O’Connor, Alanis Morissette, Prince and Cher chilled and stirred into one of the most original Lounge albums of the decade!

Chill music, also known as "chill out", "lounge", "ambient", or "new age" is a genre of music that’s become popular over the past ten years or so, and is defined by laid-back, slow tempo, electronically based sounds. Chill music provides a serene backdrop for those times when you want some relaxation and tranquility and is great for an evening of entertaining with special friends. The music is perfect for any situation where one would want pleasant sounding background music that is not too overpowering. It allows for enjoyable conversation and is a pleasurable compliment to a relaxing evening.

"Essential Collection, Volume I: Chilled and Stirred" is a great CD for anyone who enjoys harmonious sounds and likes to entertain. The album is a collection of past pop and alternative hit songs reworked into a "chill" mode by various artists of the genre. The songs on the CD are surprisingly well done and combine smooth, light sounds with a hint of familiarity that make for a perfect background to a tranquil afternoon sitting on a warm summer afternoon or an intimate evening with friends.

Here’s a look at some of the album’s best tracks

Clocks (Rendezvous) – This remake of the Coldplay song is wonderfully arranged and very pleasing to the ears!

Daughter (Loungettes) – This somber reworking of the Pearl Jam classic is melancholy yet peaceful. The female vocals and acoustic guitar provide sullen sounds that hearken contemplative, serene thoughts.

Come as you Are (Sheila Casandra) – Nirvana’s 1991 smash from their classic "Nevermind" is magically transformed as a melodious and easy-on-the-ears track.

Learn to Fly (Cher Simona) – This lighthearted reworking of the Foo Fighters hit is another smooth groove in this collection.

Holiday (Blanche Servais) – Green Day’s masterfully written lyrics work splendidly in this genre.

Everything Zen (Lounge Doctors) – This remake of Bush’s hit is another lighthearted and pleasing piece of music.

The CD offers much more in smooth, rich sounds, reworked by some of today’s established chill artists. Also included in the collection are reworkings of U2’s "Pride (In the Name of Love), Sinead O’Connor’s "Nothing Compares to You", Madonna’s "Justify My Love", Simply Red’s melancholy "Holding Back the Years", Prince’s "Purple Rain" and much much more. The CD contains 17 tracks in all, and is well worth adding to your collection.
