  1. If you peer hard enough, there are. Subtly, slow-burningly, Zero 7's wispy, placid emissions reveal charm and interest value; even the occasional surprise.
  2. This is an illuminating and captivating insight into the world of Zero 7. Far from being coffee table fodder, it provides a near perfect chill out soundtrack - easy to relax to, but always rewarding closer inspection, especially deep in the small hours.
  3. Chill out maestros prove they have some different tricks in their locker.
  4. This disc does gather the duo's most-known material, including "Destiny," "Distractions," "In the Waiting Line," and "Polaris," all of which were licensed for several compilations and/or used in advertisements.
  5. Record is all the Zero 7 anyone could ask for--all killer, no filler.
  6. Most people should pick up Zero 7's full length Simple Things for a solid atmospheric album. If a few more uptempo songs won't do you any harm, this compilation is not so bad for your backyard.

    From Dilla to Fred Falke, most of these remixers run through their own well-known tricks with all the by-the-numbers verve of Zero 7 itself.
