Chill Out is a 1990 ambient house concept album by The KLF, portraying a mythical night-time journey up the U.S. Gulf Coast from Texas into Louisiana. The album is a continuous composition, in which sampled music (including Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Acker Bilk and Tuvan throat singers), vocal samples and sound effects are overlaid with original music (including synthesizers and pedal steel guitar).
In a 1996 feature, Mixmag named Chill Out the fifth best dance album of all time, citing Jimmy Cauty and Alex Paterson as having "kickstarted" ambient music with their DJ sets at the "seminal" house night 'Land Of Oz'. Mixmag declared that "Chill out is a gorgeous patchwork of sound, noise and melody... the samples are carefully woven into a beautiful spider's web of sound."
I've decided to create a mix with all the songs since the CD has separated all of the tracks.
