Being a Paul Oakenfold fan, I originally purchased the first Vol. of Perfecto Chills just off the Perfecto name. I was really impressed with it, and it's since become one of my staple chillout compilations.
I was exctied to see Vol. 2 in my local record shop the other day, and I have to say that after a weekend full of listening, Vol. 2 is a worthy follow up. The Junkie XL / Robert Smith collaboration is a fantastic kick off to the album, which is followed by pretty cool tracks from knows like Nelly Furtado and Pete Tong. But it was the artists I was not famaliar with that really blew me away, like Savath & Savalas, Afterlife, and Backini (I'll definiately be looking out for those).
Disc 2 is my favorite of the 2, and it's got some really excellent vocal downtempo tracks, my favorites being the Chungking (just really beautiful!) and Zero 7 tracks (I'm a big Zero 7 fan, and this is the first time I've seen this mix anywhere). Perfecto favorite D:Fuse also contributes a really cool, smoldering vocal cut to close out the album.
After soaking up this second version, I'd say the Perfecto Chills series falls somewhere in between the Ultra Chilled Series and the Buddha Bar Series. Where Ultra seems to try and sell off the name recognition of often disparate sounding pop acts, and Buddha Bar has really unknown acts yet a really coehsive vibe to each installment, Oakenfold's series puts forth some big names, but also I've found that each disc has a really good, cohesive vibe, and he always presents a bunch of stellar tracks from new discoveries. In fact, the best thing about both Volumes of Perfecto Chills is that I end up digging the acts I'd never heard before more than the songs from the bigger names.
I've been playing this all CD weekend, and it keeps sounding better. Like the Vol. 1, I'd highly suggest picking this up if you are a fan of quality chill music!

I like chillout music. I've got over 50 discs of it. All I can say is this didn't really tickle my fancy. Here's why:

1. I didn't like the music (but you might, of course).

2. The discs are gimicky. (Read other reviewer's comments about including your voicemail messages...)

3. Not everything is mixed, let alone mixed well. I like my chill to be continuous. Disc 2 here isn't mixed at all.

4. The discs aren't full. Not to nitpick, but if you have two 50-minute CDs with a bit of crud on them, you could really make it a single 80-minute disc. If I get two CDs, I expect at least 60 min/disc, and probably 70+.

5. There is better stuff out there. The MoS "Chillout Session" series is better than this. The Euphoria chillouts are better than this. Ultra, Radikal, and UBL have better stuff than this. Heck, even Deca and Beechwood have better stuff than this.

Can you tell I'm disappointed? I like Paul Okenfold and Perfecto, but this is a letdown...

Any self-respecting Paul Oakenfold and Perfecto fan will buy this without need to hear it, and after seeing the good and bad reviews, I was a bit skeptical. Being an Oakenfold fan for well over a decade now, I picked it up regardless..

I must say, the best track is the opener. Such a powerful, moving melodic piece, and then things pick up and go from there nicely. Those looking for the "trance without the beats" ambient style chillout will NOT like this album, but fans of quality, groove-laced, lounge music will definitely dig this.

There are many styles included, and Oakenfold puts them together nicely. From James Bond-esque cosmopolitan beats, to trippy downtempo, to airy world and international music, even some grungy alternative post-rock shows it head here.

All in all, a very good collection of tunes, ideal for vacations, cafes, bars, road trips, get togethers, etc.

There are 2 really good tracks out of two full discs. One track ranks as one of the worst bits of music I have ever heard in my entire life. Save your money!

I was expecting a little more having first heard a track in a cafe and liked it. However, I found most of the tracks rather average.

Paul Oakenfold, one of the most world renown DJ's, dazzles us once again with this collection of up-beat chill music. Not mixed to put you to sleep, Perfecto Chills is the type of CD that you can listen to at any time, day, night, after-hours, or in the waiting rooms of life. This CD stands out from other such chill CD's by Oakenfold's use of almost main stream music to add some modern color to the relaxed hue of the entire collection. This is most evident with the tracks "Perfect Blue Sky" and "Try" on the first CD and "Making Music" and "In The Waiting Line" on the second CD. By adding these tracks while continuing to maintain the relaxed nature of the compilation, Oakenfold tweaks the feeling that the CD elicits in the listener and consequently opens more possibilities for the times and places that this music is appropriate for. If you like Oakenfold, if you like Ambient Chill type music, if you listen to SomaFM then check out this CD. You won't be disappointed. (Adjectives to describe this mix: calm, cool, laid back, confident, post-club scene, European, sexy aggressive, serene, secure, Perfecto)
