This is a brilliant album! After listening to The OC Mix 1 I thought the music could get no better, yet this is as good as, if not better than the first mix. Firstly, it is longer with 16 tracks compared to the paltry 12 on the first cd.
Personally I have found the tracks have got a lot more emotional depth now although the two cds complement each other perfectly (the third mix is also great but unfortunately only playable around christmas!).
A few of my personal highlights include 'Something Pretty' by Patrick Park which has poignant lyrics and brilliant vocals, 'Maybe I'm Amazed' by Jem which always reminds me of the series wedding, and finally 'Little House of Savages' by The Walkmen which has to be my stand out track of the cd. It is loud yet curiously relaxing, especially for all the stresses that the TV characters and normal late-teens experience!
All in All a brilliant CD with tracks to suit everyone
