This one is the exception, prehaps because the music of SA is so very good. There is only one bad track on it, hey i'm too lazy to get up and look at the CD, but its there, and the rest range from outstanding to phenomenal.
I know this is a lazy review, but no one else has pointed out this is one of the most enjoyable anthologies existing for some of the most mellow music on the planet--varied, interesting, and soothing--so i took it upon myself to do so.
