French DJ/Artist St?phane Pompougnac's seventh installment in this popular series featuring the best tracks heard at France's premiere club, bar and cafe. The Hotel Costes series serves as a ''tastemaker'' (read: trendsetting) for the rest of the world. His penchant for choosing the very best music for this series burns bright as he incorporates tracks on this outing from Rodney Hunter, Trinity FM, Bobby Hughes Combination and others. Feel free to luxuriate with the sounds and splendor of the most relaxing place in Paris with the upper crust. The ''C"stes'' brand is forever linked with the ultimate in quality and is renowned with patrons as the home of luxury in Paris. After all, the overriding theme is ''all things in excess.''
Hotel Costes Keeps the Beat.

"This a good continouation of the previous albums from Hotel Costes. Songs like Lavish by Mark Rea, Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes by Thievery Corporation Feat. Emiliana Torrini gave the cd the smooth lounge feeling and hits like Hip Hip Chin Chin (Yaziko Club Mix) by Club Des Belugas and Palumba by Watch TV is a good up beat to the overall cd. I gave it 4 stars as I found some tunes Clive the Runner and So Ma Guisee was not really to my liking.
I would recommend it to all Costes lovers.
Great Track Selection But Mediocre Mixing

"The Hotel Costes series has a favorable element to its compilations when compared to the other biggies such as Cafe Del Mar. The sets are mixed. Anyone can compiled an album together, but mixing the tracks adds several layers of complexity to the compilation.
Volume 7 of Hotel Costes features well above average track selection, but the mixing is pretty dire. A lot of this has to do with the track layout. There are just too many examples throughout the album where transitioning flanking tracks sound out of place. This is my only gripe with the album. Otherwise a nice downtempo album that is much better than most out there.
