Review

Review Text Light house music and the more soulful side of trip-hop are featured on the haphazard Poolside: Summer Lounge Collection. The disc does have more than its fair share of acoustic guitars, flutes, and breezy melodies, but Varese Sarabande's Water Music imprint has a long way to go before achieving the focus of labels like Hed Kandi or Quango. FC Kahuna, Zero 7, and Dzihan & Kamien offer up the disc's highlights, while an unforgivably limp cover of Steely Dan's "Peg" by Radiophonic nearly grinds the set to a halt. A summery feeling presides over most of the disc, but the stark Underworld and abstract FC Kahuna tracks ruin any hope of a cohesive listen. The compilation's angle is to provide background music for the beach or pool, but some tracks will go way too far off into the deep end for listeners trying to catch a relaxing tan. ~ David Jeffries
