Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Following the successful first instalment, the grandly titled Pure Genius 2 continues in much the same vein as its predecessor. Both discs are crammed with some of the best singer-songwriters throughout the ages with contemporary artists such as Tori Amos ("Cornflake Girl") and Aqualung ("Strange & Beautiful") nestling nicely among the likes of JJ Cale ("Cocaine"), Stephen Stills of Crosby & Nash fame ("Johnny's Garden") and The Velvet Underground ("I'm Sticking With You"). There are welcome inclusions from the decade that song writing forgot--the 1980, with Prince's definitive power ballad "Purple Rain" and the chirpy go-lucky "Chuck E's in Love" by Rickie Lee Jones. For those that have rarely strayed past Badly Drawn Boy or Alanis Morissette, Pure Genius 2 will provide a valuable insight into the romantic world of the singer-songwriter, as heard through the ages. --Georgina Collins

Whilst the 2nd edition in the pure genius series was always going to struggle to compete with the original in terms of recognised classics, Vol.2 entertains with a less mainstream sound. Well worth a listen, but dont expect quite as many hair on the back of the neck moments.

Even better than the first pure genius album, this is a superb collection of tracks. Not altogether easy listening, nonetheless great for a long evening at home or driving.
A great introduction to some of the featured artists.

I think that some songs are good but the most are not sufficient.
One cd was ideal in this case.
