99 MP3s for a dollar is a deal, but their calling it Chillout is a bit misleading. Chillout music almost always refers to downtempo ambient music played at clubs, such as Groove Armada. This is classical music like Debussy's Serenade for the Doll. I'm sure it's good, but they shouldn't have to mislabel it to get it heard either. It would be like buying a CD titled "The Best of Scandinavian Death Metal" and the whole thing is just "Ride of the Valkyries" played on a xylophone.

Actually, to the rest of the 99% of the world that do not live for "club night", "chill out" means to relax and be mellow.... so, it is actually named correctly.

@tsgamer: I will say that, like starblind, I too was mislead, but in a different direction. I saw the martini glass and thought "Chillout" was going to refer to 50s & 60s era smooth jazzy type of tunes. Nat King Cole, Dinah Washington, Sinatra...
Alas "Classics" are literally Classical not classics from the cool era. Still...a lot of music for cheap. Good deals.woot

@offline999: I guess that depends on what your definition of "cool era" is.

I actually gave this as a gift, and Amazon told me there was a promotion, taking $.99 off the total. So, my friend got this for free!

@podpet24: This did not work for me - or at least, on the subtotal screen right before placing my order, it still shows $0.99 (as this was just a test, I didn't place it). But sounds like you got a great deal there!
