I am growing in love with this album, Cosmic Chill Lounge Vol. 4 (Relax Edition). It’s a good combination of Chill Out and Lounge music that gets you in the mood. I suddenly feel in love with mixtures of electronica and bass beats with hints of piano and guitar – so cool and pleasant to the ears. I am, by heart, a die-hard House-Deep House-Club type of music person but when Chill Out and Lounge were introduced, my taste in music started broadening. It so perfect for driving, cruising along traffic, or doing groceries, especially when you are trying to focus on your shopping, and just having a quiet time while having coffee or just at home, relaxing. Comparing to House music, these types are easy to incorporate in your daily lives. When stressed, it’s one good instrument to listen to to center yourself and heal the mood.
Since I’ve just listened to volume 4, I’m sure that the other volumes would be as good as this and I can’t wait to listen to them and fall over again, chilling and lounging. I took the liberty to mark (*) my favorites in this album. Though all are nice, some really hits me more than the others.
- I Like It – Thomas Lemmer *
- Till The Break Of Dawn (Lounge Edit) – Dulac & Dubios *
- Someone, Somewhere – Redlounge Orchestra *
- Sunflowers – Boot Cut Rockers feat. Mica *
- Beautiful – Polished Chrome *
- Like Love (Original Mix) – Sly *
- Springtime – Schellrich & Sine *
- The Rapture – The Charly North Michael EP *
- Only A Dream – Gold Lounge
- New Paths – Sine *
- Leaving The Lights – Villablue feat. Juanita Grande *
- Hollow (Sine Remix) – Sonic Adventure Project
- Carousel – Ambray *
- Biya – Merge of Equals
- One – Thomas Lemmer *
- Herlekin – Klangstein
So it seems that I almost loved all the tracks. I do encourage for you to try listening to it and let it grab you and create a center for yourself.

Music has always been a part of my life. It compliments my moods whether I’m on the road, need to think at work, doing grocery shopping, or even spending alone time in a coffee shop while drinking my favorite hot beverage. Music has always been my companion and once I plug the earphones, I am automatically transported to my very own oasis.
I am fairly neutral to all sort of music but have this thing about not a fan of country, extreme rock, and rap – not my cup of tea. A few months back, I was so engrossed with House music but just recently I became addicted to Chillout and Lounge music. More than the popular ones, I am particular attracted to the opposite. It’s like discovering a diamond in the rough. I recently came across Merge of Equals. I fell in love with the mixture of ambient and electronica that creates this blanket of soothing and centering type of music. I guess music, in general, is very relative to our present situation.
Before I remember having a discussion about Enya, a new age artist. For most people, her music makes them drowsy and sleepy but for me it makes me think more like caffeine. I really don’t know why but it’s just the way it is. I love Enya and that’s how she affects me with her music.
I normally rate a CD depending on the number of songs I like in the playlist. For this particular album, Intoxicating, I like 14 out of 16 songs so this is a such a very good album. If you get the chance to check this album, please do and enjoy the pleasures of the rhythmic and melodic tranquility that this music brings to your life.
