Chill out/Lounge. I was so excited to see this album. After all the raw energy and razor sharp, angry lyrics that we saw on the Mzansi music series and soundtracks like Tsotsi, I couldn’t wait to hear a compilation from South Africa. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The production work is smooth, the musicianship professional, and there is nothing here to distinguish this from a Café Del Mar compilation number 2703. In a word, boring.|
