Overview

The second in a long line of chillout compilations from Ministry of Sound in 2002 did nothing to help further a solid definition of what chillout music properly consists of -- which is a double-edged sword because it leaves things open to a world of interpretation not normally associated with the pigeonholing of genres, while at the other end of the sword lies the freedom to casually lump together a package of new age-sounding compositions with lush arrangements and sub-110 beats-per-minute tempos. To its credit, Ministry of Sound does neither of those things on Karma Collection. What it does do is assemble several of the top downtempo/chillout artists from around the globe and amass them in a way that shows the regional influences that make downtempo music the truly diverse beast that it is. Contributions from artists around the world offer a diverse perspective on the use of electronics in music today, with guest appearances by those not normally associated with electronic music (such as Björk and Ride). In contrast to many of the other downtempo compilations issued by the Ministry during this time frame, it is easily the most diverse as well as cohesive. It is an excellent primer to the world of downtempo music.
