Claude Challe's Buddha-Bar, Vol. II compilation has elements of Far Eastern spirituality, African song, European electronica, and Spanish spice. The first album, Buddha-Bar, is very mellow for the most part. Deepak Chopra and Demi Moore, far and away the most recognizable names on the album, do a spoken word ditty on love and self-worth.

Claude Challe's Nirvana Lounge, Vol. 2 ventures even further in a dance direction than the first volume, thanks to tracks such as the Deep Forest remix of "We Enter" and the Rollo and Sister Bliss remix of "We Come One." However, Challe doesn't completely disown his worldbeat roots, particularly on the hypnotic, string-driven "Latin Masala," the Mediterranean-influenced "Deceptively Similar," and the dramatic, percussive "Batu." "Ponger Star," which samples a ping-pong ball being hit as its main rhythm, is another of the album's highlights, reaffirming that even as Challe's music moves in a more mainstream direction, he still leaves plenty of room for creativity. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide
