4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent tech house grooves 23 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well this is a true classic for me. At a time when progressive house and trance a la Gatecrasher was dominating the club scene in Britain, DJs like Terry Francis were blazing a trail for quality intelligent house music. Unlike the first Architecture, which was more dancefloor orientated with its brand of tech funk, Vol 2 features a slightly more downtempo tech house selection. Where Vol 1 was upfront and banging Vol 2 is more about taking you on the proverbial journey. Francis builds up a minimalist groove which takes off about 5 or 6 tracks in with the outstanding "In My Sky" by Appleheadz. The tunes complement each other perfectly and the first part of the mix culminates with the classic "Sense of Danger" by Prescence, a superb uplifting tune that features the vocal talents of Shara Nelson. The second half of the mix tapers off slightly but the last track "Afterglow" by Digital Boogie, with its Stardustesque loop, ends things on a high. For punters who like to hear subtle and thoughtful house music which also has the ability to make you tap your feet this is an absolute must.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terry's bringing down the TechHouse 11 Oct 2000
By Justin the houseaholic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, the track listings on here are from volume 1 so don't be confused. Whatever the case, Volume 2 lives up to the hype of the first installment, finishing right where it left off. It took me a few listens to realize the quality of Terry's track selection and flawless mixing, most likely because Volume 1 set the standard so high. From tribal to epic, Mr. Francis takes us on a tech journey, guaranteed to leave hard house heads feening for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Dream Mix 15 Oct 2001
By Count Zero - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Terry Francis' Advanced School of House Architecture gets another wing with this, the newest disc: 'Volume 2'. At first audition, 'Architecture' V2 feels less raucous (acidic) and even more subtle than its predecessor. But be advised: there's no sibling comparision of 'better' or 'worse' when you're in the hands of a master mixer like Francis, any more than there's judging between mountains or sea...only more vistas of progressive tech-house trance to explore at a tireless pace.
Pure Science--responsible for the last disc's headlong, echo-y manifesto "Flight Against Oppression"--opens Volume 2 with a straightforward rhythm track that gathers energy as it goes, adding a ghostly chorus chanting all the way from Botswana. This begins a dreamy groove mini-series that roams over the next several 'tracks'. As on Volume 1, primary tunes blur and float atop an insistent house foundation, woven skillfully together with layers of subtracks that rise and gradually fade back into the mix, like highway signs diminishing in a rear-view mirror.
After a segue across Gideon's trancey, aptly-named "Mellifluous" and through a wonderful vocal throwdown by Presence (who ended V1 with the burning "Better Day"), we enter into a dubby, darker techno period. Urban Response's "Mission Complete" could be a sci-fi soundtrack with its staccato drive and piano accents; U.S.O.S. converts the beat into clattery percussion drama cushioned by rolling bass, which gets passed down the line through further groove transformations. Eventually, we emerge to meet the chilly house thump of Swayzak's "Bluefarm", with a minimalist snowfall of synths drifting onto wordless vocalizations wrapped in ambient colors. Digital Boogie--another veteran of jam from the first volume--wraps this set up with a glossy, piano-laden loop of disco dreamscape called "Afterglow", which gains speed as it takes us the long way out.
Though one might be tempted to label Volume 2 as relatively more chill-out when stacked against the frantic energy of its predecessor, they're really two facets of the same thing. Both are disc-long epics sharing the same careful assembly and seamless mixing: with relentless beats of teased bpm-stretching, across which events and colors glide like cloudbanks. One again the godfather of Tech-House Flow shows the chil'ren how its *really* done...a Masters of Architecture who returns with another dream mix, which legions of DJs could stand to study. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diamond 1 May 2003
By Saul Boulschett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
is made of carbon but differs from charcoal by virtue of the unimaginable pressure it withstood to become something worthy and beautiful. Terry's work is consistently adamantine when others think only of vying for gold (and often settle for bronze or iron even). It is scandalous that work of this calibre has not (already) drawn praises from those who claim to love music. Ah, but as thieves know, the best place to hide a diamond is among crushed ice. This comp contains very fresh material--either because it is new or because lesser musicians do not think of using them. To speak in terms of color, this comp has shades of lavendar you see only in exceptional states of consciousness, combined with the most unexpected bolts of orange trailing phosphoresecent yellows streaking over a color field of the plumpest purple and menacing black. As an architect and avid lover of music, I can appreciate the sonic geometry and tectonic order that pervade throughout this comp. If architecture could be done at the level this music has attained, we'd have buildings like glowing crystals atop rough, massive plinths of obsidian and marble amid gardens of lush green and water: such is the scintillating play of melody over the rumble of basslines on this comp. Listening to this music will make you a feel humble at the power of art. My thanks and very best wishes to Terry.

Well I'm not one but to be dogging on TF's record but i think Justin needs to go back to the hills with his-only-given-terry-4-stars-bull. I have heard what Terry Francis can do, he desires at least 5.
