This review is from: Selected Ambient Works Volume II (Audio CD)
Put simply, it's a disc too long - and whereas Volume One contained a rich mixture of floaty ambient washes and glacial rhythms, this is two hours of drones. Maybe that's the point, though - this is, after all, ambient background music, and in places it's gorgeous, totally removed from his 'other' work.
Amusingly, all the tracks are identified by little pie charts which illustrate respective lengths, and the artwork is a series of photographs of radiators and stones taken in extreme close-up.
The first volume doesn't seem to be available here, which is a shame, as it's better.
