Trip hop? This is mostly downtempo, lo-fi, chill, whatever, but it's hard to call this an anthology.

Where's Morcheeba? Portishead? Massive Attack? Krush, Shadow, UNKLE? Only one track from Tricky? Guess you can't hit 'em all, but still...

That being said, this is still a great compilation. You have some great tunes by some great artists on here, one that can open you up to checking out some artists you might not otherwise get to hear. For that alone it's worth picking up. Four discs of great tunes you'd be hard pressed to collect on your own.

Fans of the sound and these artists will recognize the tracks here, removed as they from their original mixes. Because of this it's tough to give five stars as the tracks are often very much edited and just sound strange standing on their own. Still a nice sampler compilation.

I'd call this an inoffensive collection of downtempo sounds. It's not "trip hop", as most people would understand it. Don't let the Tricky track fool you - it's one of his more anodyne ones. There's no Portishead, Massive Attack, Lamb, Air...

Now, it doesn't need to be "Trip Hop's Greatest Hits" for me to enjoy it, but it really shouldn't be badged as trip hop. I was looking forward to hearing some new artists in *that* genre. As downtempo, it's a little more anodyne than what I prefer.

If you like chillout music, you might like this collection. Frankly, except for about 6 tracks (some of the ones you would have heard already, like Nightmares on Wax and Thievery Corporation), this is the electronica version of elevator music.

This collection is admittedly more downtempo than not, yet it pulls together multiple artists (practically one song per artist in 4 CDs at about 15 tracks per CD). Also, it conspicuously lacks any tracks by Massive Attack or Portishead which is the biggest drawback to this anthology. That said, it's still great listening and will work as anyone starting out on trip hop.
