4.0 out of 5 stars Music to couch to 3 May 2003
By A Customer
This is music to couch to...the first track - Dimdanana - brings images of friends round for drinks, relaxing and chatter. Missione A Bombay reminds me of a "James Bond" - exciting, something's going to happen music. I can't listen to this CD and not jiggle. Track 8, Agua de Beber, has a 70's music feel - the "Man from Uncle" comes to mind, but its updated and funky. Track 10 - Trance Dance is a relaxed take on something more rappy. All together, this is an exciting album - but when you listen you will be too chilled out to get over excitied about anything much!

4.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Chill Out 15 Aug 2003
By A Customer
If like me you were a big fan of the original "Chill Out" genre of music, but became disappointed at everything released since it hit the mainstream, then this is for you. This is chill out with a twist of lemon and an element of cheese. It has a number of delicious global influences that take you from an Ibiza beach to a sultry Latin America via a cocktail lounge in the backstreets of Paris - all from the comfort of your own sofa. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Bond meets a Camel in the Desert 7 May 2004
I bought this CD because of the cover.A gift for my partner.Problem is everyone who listens to it wants a copy.The tunes get into your head and fill those cold wintery days with thoughts of warm balmy summer evenings . All the tunes have a filmic quality , an Indian James Bond (Gotan Project) Tropial rain forrests deserts etc etc.Anyway its a great compilation .All the Putamayo Albums I have bought since have been Quality items.

5.0 out of 5 stars Offbeat and Awesome! 15 Nov 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Putumayo Music has done it again! This has to be one of my most different, and favorite, CDs I own. World Lounge is an exploration in lounge music, its downtempo beats spreading across the globe. The music on this CD comes from everywhere: France, Italy, India, Japan, Argentina . . .
Without a doubt Blue Asia's "Abyssinean Dub" is the best track. It fuses middle eastern rhythms, asian instruments, and modern beats in one terrific song. I can never play it just once. Another favorite of mine is "Santa Maria", which puts a modern, urban spin on the Argentinian tango. (you may have heard this song in some commercials) Then there's always the quirky "Sympathique" by Pink Martini, which is a throwback to the days of French cabaret.
This is truly an eclectic CD, and it is definitely not for everyone. This is the type of CD where, to be honest, you either love it or you hate it. Listen to the sample tracks; trust me, you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellant sampler 6 Feb 2003
By "treestamp" - Published on Amazon.com
I am addicted to Putumayo releases and this is one of my favorites so far. Honestly I didn't think I'd like it nearly as much as I do. It's difficult to describe it's overall appeal, since genre-namedropping doesn't do this music justice. To humor the prospective buyer, however, I'd say it's a nexus of world music, Euro trip-hop/club, and dub with a fun dash of retro-kitsch. Each track is distinctive enough to stand out on its own, which is one of this sampler's strengths. I give it 5 stars because while there's a couple of tracks that don't do it for me, the tracks I enjoy more than make up for the ones I can do without. Having said that, I'd rank Mo' Horizons, Mau Mau, Blue Asia, and Pink Martini as the winners on the bunch, both for the distinctive style and musical appeal of each track, with the Montefiori Cocktail track getting an honorable mention for its delightful kitschiness. I enjoyed some of these tracks so much it motivated me to go out albums by three of these artists, despite the premium import price I had to pay for them all. It's a wonderful album to kick back and chill with, without it getting dull or boring, as well as something to throw on the player at a party that'll definitely make heads turn and intrigue any inquiring minds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy Chill 14 April 2002
By Zoetrophe - Published on Amazon.com
Chill-out music is a global phenomenon and this trendy lounge music compilation by Putomayo is excellent for perfecting the act of lounging idly. Modern downtempo masters like Italian producer Nicola Conte and German DJ Project Jasmon love marrying South American elements with enigmatic middle eastern melodies to create a novel, entrancing aural backdrop for a moodsome lounge session. This eclectic collection with European DJs validates that Parisians have no monopoly over chill-out vibes. So whether you are on a warm rug at your own lounge pad or at a chic Parisian lounge, just lay back on this chill out odyssey. My faves: Mau Mau, a folksy accordion with quirky percussion, punchy bass and subtle electronic remixes and bits of African pop & Blue Asia (Japan) which fuses exotic Indian sitar with oriental trumpets. Classy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cocktail music 2 May 2002
By Stacy Kurko - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great soundtrack for a swanky cocktail party.
Whenever I play it at my parties, my friends always ask where the wonderfully different music is from. I tell them its from all over the world.
Its also a great "springboard" CD. If you like one cut better than another, investigate the artist (Pink Martini has become a new favorite of mine).
If you like this CD, you should also look for the Style series by Electric Lounge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lounge it up with this CD 3 July 2003
By "agent_bass" - Published on Amazon.com
This CD offers a flawless mix of electronica, jazz, latin, and ethnic styles. I've listened through a lot of other similar compilations, such as Paris Under a Groove, Hotel Costes 5, and Bhudha Bar IV, but this one's the icing on the cake.
