France's leading independent record label presents a double CD featuring no less than 33 of the burgeoning Parisian electronic scene's leading lights. Despite the "lounge" in the title, the overall direction of the compilation is a more dance-floor-friendly sound than the name suggests. CD1, subtitled "Paris by Day," pursues a funky jazz-breaks vibe with offerings from heavyweights Etienne De Crecy ("Tempovision") and Alex Gopher, whose breathy electro ballad "Ralph and Kathy" drops things down a gear. Both these tracks sit comfortably next to the atmospheric soundscapes of the lesser-known artists Coco Suma, Readymade, and Patchworks, whose sparse "I Guess You Always Knew" sums up the overall feel of the mix. CD2 is an excursion through well-worn house music, kicking off strongly with the percussive "Sands of Time" by Next Evidence and continuing through a funky tribal vein with Kiko's "Italimatic" and the D&B mode of DJ Roussia & Les Malones. There are no real musical surprises here, but it's a well put-together compilation all the same. --Miles Atkinson

Having not particularly cared for Paris Lounge 1, I was somewhat reluctant to purchase PL2. Boy, am I glad I did! It is infinitely more of what you'd expect from a Parisian chill-out compilation, no matter what other reviewers claim: more consistant, more contemporary, and just more ambient. Much of the material was recorded specifically for this CD. If they can continue producing this series and maintain this level of artistry, let's hope they go on forever. A 5+++ star aural gem!

If you liked the Costes series and St. Germain, this CD is for you ! This CD is pure dope for the jazz-house-electronica lover.I have both Paris Lounge 1 and 2 and in my opinion this installment is better than the first. Enough said. Time to listen to my Paris Lounge 2 CD....

But that doesn't mean Paris Lounge 2 is bad. PL2 has the same eclectic mix of what's meant to represent the best of the Paris House scene; the double CD set is split between Paris by Day and Paris by Night. Not being in, from, or around Paris, I have to assume the PL2 producers are reliably representing the scene, and not just smacking together tracks from other Wagram discs.
As a resident of a city where the lounge scene is still up and coming (minus a few established venues) I enjoy the variety that PL2 provides -- though I was a little disappointed that not all the tracks are new; Next Evidence's Sands of Time is immediately recognizable from its appearance on various other compilations, notably Danny Tenaglia's Global Underground release of almost two years ago.
Nevertheless, PL2 is a worthwhile investment -- if nothing else, it fills the dead air between club trips.
Update: For those of you who love figuring out what music is used in what commercial, Rouge Rouge's "C'est Presque Ca" from disc one is the song used in the commercial for the new Mercedes Benz CLK.

Much to my suprise, this great collection is filled with original tracks that have a strong "chill" sound with occasional very light funk tracks (like "eggs"). Westernize is campy and epic at the same time. Motherless Child is a post-modern torch song piece. Once of the better CD's I have found lately. My only complaint is that this "Paris" compilation sometimes sounds more like American music.
