All I remember of Ministry of Sound is some sucky 80's music.
A dutch friend of mine told me to get this compilation, and according to him good taste in music is "his only skill." He has pointed out other albums before and never failed me, so I gave it a shot.
Wow. I mean, really, wow. This is a GREAT compilation. It is SO listenable. I can listen to it for hours. It's got some upbeat tracks, some slower ambient tracks, some dancey tracks, and all the artists I like (Lemon Jelly, Groove Armada, Leftfield...) in a very seamlessly melded chilled out *double* CD.
It's a must have for any collection. It really is. A bargain at any price.

Well this really doesn't need a review, as the briefest of glances at the track selection reveals all. Much like the radio-play friendly NOW compilations in stores, the Ministry of Sound deliver their scheduled package of cuts for club kids. 36 bona fide radio-length hits, not really flowing in a logical order, nor necessarily mixed well...but the best value in tunes to be had. Only this time, the focus lies on "chillout" tracks suitable for comedown after a hard night's adventures.
The hottest chart toppers are pushed first, hence the sublime American Beauty score-sampling Jakatta `American Dream' and, er, Fatboy Slim `Demons'. Alright, ignore that one. Then a decent chunk of quality music gets spruced up one last time (`King of My Castle,' `The Child') before hopeful retirement, with, yes, Nightmares on Wax's seminal `Les Nuits' landing on it's 1296th compilation to date.
So consider this more a superb sampler of all the acts frequently name dropped and chart referenced that you've possibly never heard. Tim `love' Lee, Bonobo, Lemon Jelly and Sumsonic Presents (the surprise find in the lot) offer strong examples of underground leftfield artists restoring buzz to the sunset scene. You'll surely skip tracks, but likely discover new favorite bands in the process. I'll say this, The Ministry of Sound follows a winning formula, offering so much at too low a price to ignore. 3.5 stars

great smattering of tastes. Disc 1 is downtempo groove music, Disc 2 is chilled-out house music. Both are great in their own distinctive ways. All tracks are worth listening to, with quite a few classic trancehouse tunes thrown in.

It's Sunday morning following a long night at the club. Physically and emotionally, you're a mess. You're probably suffering from a major hangover, or your ears are still ringing from hours of the relentless beats of house music. You have no intention of getting out of that bed anytime soon, and you're looking for a CD that'll get you ready to take on a brand new day. The brains behind Ministry of Sound have created a solution, and it's called the Chillout Session. This two disc set has one CD of mid-tempo numbers ranging from alternative pop to electronica, while the other CD has a collection of slightly housed-up jams, and a few ambient numbers. The selection is well put together and sets the tone with the beautiful "The Shining" from Badly Drawn Boy. This track has appeared in quite a few chillout compilations, and it's easy to see why: the acoustic guitars and the mellow vocals are good enough to soothe and put you at ease. We're also treated to other jams by Macy Gray, Moby, Thievery Corporation, an ambient remix of "Sexual" by Amber, and a discocentric remake of the theme to "American Beauty." In the world of chillout compilations, there are the pretenders, and there's the Real Thing. This overall impressive set by Ministry of Sound definitely falls into the latter category.

Ministry of Sound is a massive label that specializes in all types of party music, whether it be soul, Ayia Napa, disco, house, trance, discotheque and of course chillout, which was what they pushed and pushed and pushed so much that they saturated the market with redundant products in 2001. When I got this, I remember the exact day and place and what was on the "features" wall. This one, Chillout Session 2, Dreamstates and several others were screaming for attention and loaded with "2 for 22 pounds" stickers. Sadly, most of them were extremely similar and maybe not worth the 13 pounds (about 19 dollars at the time) individually. But I was suckered and figured I'd give them a shot so picked up two I thought would be different - this one and the sequel, released that summer.

This is a good mix of some easy going pop/chill tunes on cd 1, and a bit more upbeat with some of the more popular club tracks at the time. But never are the songs over-bearing, there's a consistent vibe. The feel of this cd is not to make you lethargic but to keep you content, in my opinion. But you do have some very popular songs here - lemon jelly, kinobe, rob d, sneaker pimps, Thievery Corp, bonobo, moby, nightmares on wax... if you like chillout chances are you've already heard and seen these exact songs and artists ten fold on other compilations. The second cd features the likes of jakatta, york, sasha, underworld, alex gopher, bent, energy 52. Again, all well known and perhaps overplayed artists but not necessarily of the 'chillout' nature. CD 2 is very interesting in that it goes from a light club feel to more ambient sounding tunes and heavier beats.

The verdict? This is a solid compilation of tunes that in the winter/spring of 2001 represented what was sort of new at the time.
