4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Costes action - but where's the mixing? 20 Oct 2003
By Tom L
Format:Audio CD
I now own all of the Costes albums, and while I don't necessarily find every track appealing (though there are many I think are excellent) I'm a big fan of the idea of a compilation which does not stick to one genre, but instead takes the listener on a journey through a variety of styles of music. This is something that Stephane Pompougnac does particularly well, and the unifying factor behind his choice of tunes is that (nearly) all of them are the sort of thing you'd want to be hearing in a sophisticated Parisian hotel. I have the Costes series to thank for introducing me to artists and styles I'd never come across before, and one always gets the impression that the compiler has his hand in a lot of diverse and interesting musical pies. Derivative is one thing that these albums are not, and on the strength of this fact I'd encourage anyone to give at least one of them a try.
Costes 6 is not the best in the series. OK, the choice of music is one of the most compelling, and this alone earns it a 4-star rating in my opinion; but it's a real shame that hardly any of it is mixed, especially since some of the tracks are eminently mixable, and since a series of prolonged and imaginative mixes is what gives Costes 4 the edge over the other five. Perhaps Stephane has decided to cut his losses following the cracking mis-match at the start of Costes 3, or the oh-so-subtle pitch bends in Costes 5 - which again come between the first and second tracks, the point in the album when he needs to impress the listener the most. What else... well, we have the hilarious, self-indulgent arty posters thrown in to complement the slightly less gratuitous arty cover, and the obligatory (but pretty good) Pompougnac-penned track. Watch out for his forthcoming album (presumably ironically) titled Living On The Edge...

5.0 out of 5 stars best yet.... 28 May 2004
By Mr Ed
Format:Audio CD
I am a bloke of 47 who was in a bad rut where music was concerned...that is until I came across COSTES no2 about 3 years ago in a french music store...since then I have bought them all and while none of the albums are "fashionable" in the sense that they will get passe fast, they improve each time and no6 to me is the best...My favourite of the series is no2 (LA SUITE) as it was my first buy BUT this one is so more grown up and so much cooler than the 1st ones. I would definitely recommend a listen as each and every time I have put it on for friends they have rushed to buy it!!!!!Great GREAT collection! (and this from someone who now has about 200 "lounge" cds by many different artists...)

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb variety of sounds! 21 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have heard the other Costes albums, but No.6 is my favourites as there are more tracks that I really like. What I enjoy most is the variety in sound, which is so refreshing... Definitely would recommend it to anyone out there that is in search of an album that is different and sensory overload!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it from the moment I heard it! 3 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I came across this CD purely by chance while browsing in a music shop. By the time I had heard the second song, I knew I had to have it. The first time I listened to the whole CD was at a friend's, who played it twice, back to back, and then promptly went out and bought the next day!
If you're into chill-out/Ibiza music, this will be up your street. All I now have to do is go out and obtain the other five in the series. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy beatz! 11 Oct 2005
By SebJar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hotel Costes kick starts things right off with In The Black Of The Night by Slow Train. A beautiful, soulful, jazzy track with excellent female vocals. We then head off to Reality Check by Stigmato Inc. Not one of my favorite tracks on here but still OK. Gets thing ready for the next track called Metropolitan by Emmanuel Santarromana. An amazing track with the beautiful sounds of the accordion. I'm not sure what language it is but I think it could be Italian. Right after that we get things really moving with Surround Me With Your Love (Mental Overdrive Mix) by 311 Porter. This track is a Spanish/Latin flavored piece with enough energy to set the dance floor on fire yet still having a moody feel to it. It does have the vocals Surround Me With Your Love - I Need Your Love. Magnificent! Right up next we head into familiar territory with Rolf Royce by Tosca Feat. Stephan Graf Hadik Wilnder. I'm familiar with Tosca and everything else they have done and this is another one of their amazing downtempo tracks and fits here excellently! Things slow down a bit on the next track. Morenito (Bossa Mix) by Stephane Popougnac Featuring Clementine is a beautiful Latin/Brazilian flavored track that has enough of a beat to keep you grooving but not heavy enough to really tire your ears. Next up things pick up again with a fun Latin House track. This is an excellent track to get things going. It's just a fun party tune. Snowblind by Minus 8 is fun and moody and groovy perfect for this set. I love the vocals on here. It fits excellenty in the track. Up next is my favorite track on here. Come On (Sket Remix) by Dutch Rhythm Combo Featuring Annik. What an amazing track this is. Great vocals by Annik complementing the delightful beats behind it. AMAZING! Next up we have You Fly Me by Fingathing. This track reminds me of a score from a 60's/70's romance flick. This actually sounds much better than what music would sound like back then but it just reminds me. It gives me goosebumps. Bluesless (Radio Mix) by Spiro Projecto Featuring Josefina Sanner is another jazzy, instrumental electronica track. Very upbeat with minimal vocals. Fun. It has hints of early 90's techno/rave. Up next is The Breeze Is Back (Moonstar Remix) by Zimpala. I have to say this is not one of their stronger pieces. I really love Sugar by Zimpala. I just love that track but this track doesn't compare at all to Sugar. The vocals actually get a little annoying. Luckily the vocals are short and they end pretty quickly. Things start winding down from now on with Party's On by Grand Palace and finally Un Monde Sans Frime by Doctor Jazz's Universal Remedy. The stronger of the latter two tracks is Un Monde Sans Frime. Beutiful Vocals and great music.

Overall Hotel Costes still has it going for it and Stephane Pompougnac still has it going for him and Hotel Costes 6 is definitely a winner. So go get it and listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars #6 Continues the groove... 30 Nov 2003
By R Knox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am not a music critic. I just know what I like. After enjoying Hotel Costes 3-5, I did not hesitate to pick up #6. I was disappointed after the first lister, primarily due to my unfamiliarity with the tunes. There's alot going on in these songs.
My whole perception changed after repeat listenings. I partiuclarly like tracks 1) In the Black of Night and 2) Reality Check, mainly for the very cool vocal/lyrical delivery. Track 1 is a story of murder, sung with a 1940's jazz vocal style. Track 2's lyrics sound like they were written as a rap, but are delivered much slower. Track 3 is from Tosca's latest cd "Delhi9" If you wind up liking that track, I recommend checking out other Tosca releases.
I love how electronica is evolving from just rock solid beats, to a more melodic form and tying in interesting vocals. The rest of the cd is great also, but I won't comment further, as I really don't like picking apart songs...I like to listen.
Highly recommended. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not even close 12 Oct 2004
By N. Rossbach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have every single volume and love them all. However, this one was super disappointed with this last volume that I couldn't wait to receive. The CD Album aesthetics were very tasteful but I also (as another reviewer) fear that the production was more in tune with the appearance of the album rather than its contents and the song sequences do not blend into each other as well as they have in past albums. I however DO NOT recommend this album, unless you want it as part of your collection because you have all the other volumes. I only liked 2 songs on here. The rest was not as sophisticated as in past volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 'de Stéphane Pompougnac' 29 Oct 2003
By "sashadm" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're not a Pompougnac fan now, after hearing this album, you should be. This is the best lounge CD I have bought yet this year and maybe ever.
Hotel Costes Volume 5 was my first Stéphane Pompougnac purchase after borrowing my friend's Volume 3 and 4 which I loved. Volume 5 was a disappointment, especially after purchasing the excellent Nu De Lune CDs (more French lounge with provactive women on the album covers). Vol 5 seemed a little more subdued than the previous Hotel Costes albums, but Vol. 6 brings back that wild array of enchanting music.
The album starts with the jazzy song "In The Black of Night" (which for some reason reminds me of a "Mac the Knife" motif a la soul music) to the sultry "Reality Check" to the upbeat/ Latino/accordian "Metropolitan" to the soothing guitar strums of "Surround Me With Your Love." I could go on and on, but you should just go buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Costes album!!! 6 Dec 2004
By Julio Castro Karg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sensual, sophisticated, eclectic, relaxing and never boring! These are just a few of the qualities that "Costes 6" has to offer! I've been enjoying this album for over 4 months already, and I love it!!!

I've heard people complaining that Costes albums are becoming far too "commercial". Well, maybe, maybe not! But, I really don't mind as long as Costes continues to deliver clever, imaginative and immensely enjoyable albums! Pompougnac really has a sense of style when he chooses the music to mix in his Costes albums! And that's enough for me!

If you are looking for a great mix of music with lots of style and variety look no further, the Costes collection has it all!

"Costes 7" is out already!...I can't hardly wait to get it!
