4.0 out of 5 stars please be seated 25 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
With a touch of confusion, uncertainty and excitement - no bad thing today - I came upon this classily packaged album in the post. Upon pressing play the beauty of this composition immediately struck me. That is exactly what it feels like. Dense fat beats, lush orchestration, heartfelt lyrics and sparse spine tingling instrumentation combine to take you through a journey into moods and beyond. The Dining Rooms are two talented Italian producers, Stephano Ghittoni and Cesare Malfatti. "Tunnel" the opening track is a beautiful declaration of intent almost cinematic in quality and quality is what we're talking about here. As if the beats and melody aren't enough there are enough subliminal secondary sounds going on to keep you listening in rather than just drifting off oblivious to what's been produced. We have Tosca vocalist Anna Clementi coming in on the appropriately titled "Dreamy Smiles"; two minutes something of pure contentment. Elsewhere Compost boys Soulpatrol bring the funked up beats on "You" and we are moved to the beat of the African drum towards the tail end of the album. There's even room for a Sun Ra cover. Nothing seems too spoil the mood of easy life, swallowed up by my sofa living the dream. Definitely one to keep tabs on. Feel it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous 14 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'd never heard of Dining Rooms when I was recommended this album. So, I bought it, and put it on my MP3 player as I walked to the pub on a sunnny evening.

The first track, Tunnel just floored me- effortlessly beautiful and soaring, with a hypnotic piano riff that reminds me of a steam train (hence the title of the song perhaps?) and gorgeous strings. Wow.

Another highlight is track four, Flamenco Sketches, a laid back track with sparse female vocals and more lovely piano

The whole album is very good, I feel the strongest out of their others. I love piano and strings and this features it in spades. An awesome album for a long drive, a romantic night in, or just background tuneage. Recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is lounge at its best 28 May 2004
By Mr Ed
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A superb album that relaxes, surprises and generally proves the point that lounge is great for any age! Indeed it is equally melodic AND cool in the same measures and has everything that I require from such a only comment is I much prefer the original sleeve and dont know why this dull one was the preferred one for UK..shame! But I recommend this for all lovers of cool and chill in equal measures!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dining Rooms - "Tre" - 2003 19 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
To me "Tre" is beautiful and intriguing, from the first track through the last. Although I have listened to this album dozens of times there is still still something about it which continues to appeal to me. "Tre" has a timeless quality and the more I have listened to it the more I've grown to enjoy it. Stefano Ghittoni and Cesare Malfatti are without a doubt masters or their craft and have produced an album worth listening to time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dining Rooms, The - Tre 22 Feb 2011
By scoundrel - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The Dining Rooms' third album, Tre, follows closely in the footsteps for their other two: trip-hop rhythms, cinematic soundscapes, and moody melodies. But, the rhythms are a bit livelier (check out the near-house of "Fluxus" or the full-on house of "Prigionieri Del Deserto"), and there's more emphasis on vocals (the plaintative male on "Fightin' 4 Rebirth" or the dreamy female on "Astro Black") and jazziness ("Existentialism (Milano Dub Mix)"). But the real reason to listen comes on the very first track: "Tunnel" is a tremendously beautiful track, full of longing and want and pain. It's what heartbreak sounds like, and it stands head-and-shoulders above ever other track. It alone is worth the price of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing and funky 27 Mar 2006
By Mark - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Look, the same person wrote all of the reviews above this one. Believe me - it's worth having, but don't scream and shout like it's the end of history. Pleasing and funky and maybe good for sex.

2.0 out of 5 stars xanax without the fun part 29 Jan 2012
By Hollingsworth - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am late to the Dining Rooms party, and apparently haven't been missing much despite the 5-star reviews on Amazon. There is a difference between chilled (which I love) and comatose, which except for a couple of tracks toward the end of this disc would certainly be an apt description. There is no there there.
