One would think something titled "Classical Chillout 2" would contain a variety of laid-back classical music. Most pieces are just that, but interspersed are movie pieces and other genre music that don't seem to fit in. The Penguin Cafe Orchestra's "Telephone and Rubber Band" track is a good example. This song is based around a tape loop of a UK telephone ringing tone intersected with an engaged tone, accompanied by the twanging of a rubber band. It's catchy, but hardly classical, and soon becomes tedious. Another example is "Vision" by Hildegard Von Bingen, arranged and performed by Richard Souther. It is classical music, but this version is New Age, awful and anything but "chillout easy-listening." Overall, most are great selections, but it's that sprinkling of weird junk that rates this two-CD set four stars.
