Bedroom Communities 01 - Pillow Talk by Various Artists

The idea is very simple. Provide a CD of songs that helps people who have been at a high level of stress throughout the day to unwind and be able to talk to each other away from everything. A compilation CD called Bedroom Communities 01 - Pillow Talk is an interesting CD that realizes that stress today is different than stress in the 70's and needs a new feel to it. However, I question how the songs on the release were placed.

Some of the early tracks on Bedroom Communities have the feeling that they should have been placed in the middle of the CD. I would have started this CD with the UK's Mangafoot and The Sin and the Fear. This track, which is the fourth track on the CD, is the perfect wind down song for people coming from work or a day with the children. From there, the fifth track from Smooth of the United States called Walking on Space is a great followup. From there, you can move on to the first three tracks, Big Sand by the UK's Hardkandy, Three Dimensional by the UK's Dynamo Productions and France's Zend Avest and One of These Days, which The Sin and the Fear and Walking on Space are the perfect setup tracks.

After the first five tracks, the CD goes into perfect order until the last two tracks. Mas Fuerte Que El Sol from the UK's The Vogado Projects should have been placed after Smooth because it is the most upbeat track on Bedroom Communities. Hungary's Erik Sumo's Do It Yourself is the perfect ending track for this release, which brings back a feeling of completion to the night.

Bedroom Communites 01 - Pillow Talk is relaxing music for a new generation. However, you should not have to program your CD player beforehand to play this CD. It just defeats the purpose and adds stress to those who can't program their CD player.
