My teenage daughter turned me onto Buddha Bar ... she loves it.I have in turn bought a copy for my parents ... it's music for all generations. This is an eclectic mix of eastern inspired music that would suit any occasion. One disc is upbeat & funky and the other is softer. All the tracks are totally original and very easy on the ears. I listen to this CD over & over again and never get tired of it. I haven't watched the DVD yet - that'll just be icing on an already yummy cake.

Having purchased at least 5 Buddha Bar albums I figures a 10 years album would surpass them all. Man was I disappointed as it turns out to be the worst one of them all. I also bought V7 which was crappy but not as bad as this.
BBIII and IX are still my favourites.

HASH(0x9b010498) out of 5 stars good chill out music May 6 2009
By Pam Senter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard this CD while attending a yoga class in Los Angeles. Bought it right away and have really enjoyed it since. It's ok for something like yoga, but I like it best as background music. It's great for parties or other occasions where you want to talk, but enjoy light music in the background. This is a good sampler for people who are interested in getting a feel for the Buddha Bar series.

HASH(0x9b00a3f0) out of 5 stars Imagine being transported to a valley somewhere in the Orient... April 19 2011
By Jonathan A. Chang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Buddha Bar compilations have oft been compared to Del Mar Cafe or World Dub Pastry, undoubtedly in part because its genre is listed as chillout; however, if you are looking for anything like the aforementioned, this is not it. While other chillout albums would take the edge your day, as your sink into a futon late night listening to ethereal synths dance with ambient echoes, and the occasional world sample, Buddha Bar tends to be the background music to an engaging conversation over dinner at a high-end restaurant. A person looking for chillout and mixed with continuity would likely find the variety of ethnic compositions, comparatively themeless, to be boring. I have also seen reviews claiming Buddha Bar to be badly mixed, with trance DJ's listed like DJ Tiesto or Armin van Buuren listed as the alternative. Surely on the dancefloor, the flow of the beat is much more important. The Buddha Bar doesn't claim to be a technical masterpiece, nor does it seek to be original. In fact, the selection is mixed only with light percussion and ethnic drums as a beat.

A fairer comparison would be with the Hotel Costes series, since they both share the same function. However, while Hotel Costes takes pride in its Western European roots, with pop, dance, hip-hop, with touches of jazz, as the base selection, Buddha Bar will take you on an exotic journey across the far reaches of the world. Over the years, Claude Challe and DJ Ravin have gathered an impressive list of tracks from no less than Romania, India, Korea, the Middle East, and the Native Americans, with some good Western classics and orchestral, and original Euro-synth compositions in between. While you could possibly spend hours to days to discover all these gems hidden from Western audiences by yourself -- after all, the internet is replete with resources today -- Buddha Bar could also serve to be a starting point for you to branch out and expand your musical familiarity. It takes an open mind to enjoy this series, and you will have to leave your comfort zone sometimes, but if you have pre-conceived notions of what this should be, whether it's chillout, house, or Tibetan chants, you might not enjoy it as much.

If I were to classify Buddha Bar, I would have to call it "ethnic fusion". They are world pieces coupled with ethnic drums and a little bit of modern synths often produced with Euro-dance, all while maintaining its authentic flavor. I get more of a Bela Fleck vibe to it (see Sleeper from the Little Worlds album) than anything else that is "chillout". There's a genuine mix of both exciting and relaxing tunes that makes it just right.

HASH(0x9bf2399c) out of 5 stars Perfect compilation April 10 2007
By Jose Antonio Velazquez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nice compilation of all kinds of styles in music, but under certain style of relaxing. It comes with a nice DVD wich shows what Buddha Bar is all arround the globe. The second cd is my favourite, from track number 6 to 10. I totally recomend this cd. The only bad think i have to say about this box, is the poor quality of the cover and back (improperly glued), they should put more attention how or who makes this boxes.

HASH(0x9b0106fc) out of 5 stars Not So Good April 11 2009
By Starburst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just bought this, hoping, since I have been to the Buddha Bar in Paris many times, it's my favorite spot in Paris, that this compilation would represent the best of the world music groove that BB is famous for throughout the world. NOT EVEN. THIS IS AN INSIPID COMPILATION OF THOSE TRACKS THAT ARE THE LEAST INTERESTING-DON'T BUY IT-OTHER BB CD'S ARE MUCH BETTER.
