Product Description

2007 two CD set, the sequel to the first volume that went on to be the compilation phenomenon of 2006 and was the third best-selling album in the UK that year! Volume Two promises to be even stronger and will build on the success, and the word-of-mouth from the first Live Lounge record. The album is made up of tracks from Jo Whiley's lunchtime show (five million listeners) where bands performed their own track, or a cover version. The tracks are live and stripped down, showing the true quality of the musicianship and craft of the song. The album is a combination of alternative versions of band classics plus unique cover versions recorded live in BBC Maida Vale. The cover versions include Keane doing 'Dirrtylicious' (a mix of Christina and Destiny's Child!), Biffy Clyro covering 'Umbrella' and Avril Lavigne reworking 'The Scientist'. 40 tracks total including exclusive cuts from Arctic Monkeys, Mika, Foo Fighters, Amy Winehouse, Bloc Party, Kings Of Leon, Corinne Bailey Rae, Damian Rice and others. BMG TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album with a couple of flaws 2 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
I brought this album because I love the live lounge, I must admit although I did like the 1st live lounge album it wasn't as good as I had hoped for and while I do still listen to it it does have some very disappointing moments. The Second album is a different matter however and while again it does have a couple of songs that are in my opinion bad the majority of the album is fantastic and it is only those couple of songs that keep it from getting 5 stars.

The low points are Corinne Bailey Rae - Sexyback which I think is awful and Dizzee Rascal - Fix Up, Look Sharp but that is probably because I have never really liked Dizzee

The high points for me have to be Biffy Clyro - Umbrella which is excellent and 30 Seconds To Mars - Stronger which I believe is worth getting the album for by itself it is one of the best covers I have heard I loved the orginal by Kanye West but I think this version is even better

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Live Lounge 28 Dec 2007
By Muso
Format:Audio CD
As an avid listener to Live Lounge while at work I got this as a Christmas pressie and was over the moon. Lets just say the Live Lounge separates the men from the boys and the girlies from the ladies. On Radio 1 it always throws up some surprises. One example is 30 Seconds to Mars (too Emo for me) doing Kanye West (who I loathe with a passion), combine the two together and you get the best track on this CD! Much better than the original. Nelly Furtado sounding pretty darn good as well is another surprise. Kings of Leon sound like a recording and Jo Whiley did say on SEVERAL occasions that it was NOT a recording! Perfection! Jose Gonzalez and Damien Rice words cannot describe! Gossip-amazing (Avril take note!!)

To sum up, great in most parts, highlights being:
Gossip (that girl got voice)
Foo Fighters (best live band in world)
Kings of Leon (2nd best Live band in world)
Jose Gonzalez (silk)
30 Seconds to Mars (Wow.. surprising, he can sing too)
Paolo Nutini (just has to open his mouth and that comes out)
Robyn (touching)
Arctic Monkeys (perfection)
The View (intelligble!!)
Dizzee Rascal (Sharp)
Damien Rice (What u would expect from DR)

But there are a few ropy tracks:
Avril Lavigne (girl cannot find the notes!!)
Mika (cringe!!)
The Fray (what is that all about??)
Maroon 5 (yuch!)
Maximo Park (Eh???? Not even same song)

All in... worth a purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good. 8 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Live Lounge always throws up the occasional beauty, and there are a few here. Ironically Valerie, by Amy makes me cover my ears, screechy! But most of the rest are fair to excellent. Worth a shot though, better than the first one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Choice 20 Jan 2009
By Ratty
Format:Audio CD
I love the Radio One Live Lounge compilations as you get to hear stuff you would never normally. This is no exception.

My personal highlights of covers from the second volume are:
- Umbrella by Biffy Clyro - much imitated, especially through things like the X Factor, but still a brilliant rendition of the song which I absolutely hate in it's original format.
- 1,000 Miles by Maximo Park was for me, quite stunning. Loosely based on the original, but I really appreciated this cover.
- Stronger by 30 Seconds To Mars is another diamond. Far removed from the original to listen to, but with almost every single element reproduced and taking on another form.
- And my absolute favourite is The Fray doing Hips Don't Lie. This is, for me, one of my favourite tracks ever from Live Lounge. I love the quirkiness and vocals and it's a really fantastic cover which somehow becomes even more Latin in translation.

Interesting interpretation of Hung Up by The Enemy, which I think should work in principle, but it may be lacking a little something.

Also, many other live tracks are well worth a listen, especially Robyn's amazing track which Girls Aloud murder on volume 3, Calvin Harris, Gossip and others.

Unfortunately I hated KT Tunstall's Bloc Party cover - it lost a lot of it's power in translation there, and not being a fan of Amy Winehouse meant hearing her sing Valerie for the millionth time wasn't my favourite track. Not a Dizzee fan, and his live rendition was just too samey and messy for me.

Overall I enjoyed it just as much as the first volume and will continue buying Live Lounge volumes - I just think it's a shame that not ALL the tracks are covers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live Lounge - a hit again! 12 Mar 2008
By Annabel
Format:Audio CD
The first live lounge CD was good, but this second one is even better! I bought it for my boyfriend and he loved it! All of the tracks are brilliant as ever. Well done Radio 1 and all of the artists for compiling this CD. Can't wait for Volume 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great livelounge 15 July 2010
Format:MP3 Download
I loved radio 1's initial live lounge, and I actually think this one is better. Favourite song - Biffy Clyro doing "Umbrella" - beautiful. If you love the live lounge I definitely recommend you getting this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exc-ell-ent (p.s. please amerie!) 27 Nov 2007
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic! I make no bones about it. The whole concept of the live lounge is genuinly brilliant and produces some memorable moments. Virtually every song is great, and despite what you may have already read, the pigeon detectives cover of girlfriend is a real highlight (featuring the line 'jo, jo whiley, will you be my girlfriend').
The album offers up great comedy moments such as that and Keane covering dirtylicious by christina agguiiuaulalluiera e.t.c. Where else would you hear the line 'Scott Mills can you handle this'?
You should buy this album, now, go on, do it. DO IT! QUICKLY!!
and relax.

P.S. Amerie, will you please release the rights to put Elbow's cover of one thing on one of these albums. Please.
