I Know All Three Albums Well And What They Should Sound Like, The Music On Vol 2 Is 5 Star But The Mastering Is Awful On Some Of The Tracks And You Can't Hear Everything You Should And The Only Way To Hear This Album As It Should Be Heard Is To Listen To The Original LP
Back in the day their first album was one of my favourites, and when I bought it again a few years ago it was as good as I remembered it to be, and I would give it a strong five stars. Given the rather hectic lifestyle I lived at the time, I never got round to buying Vol 2 until very recently, but what a disappointment! Where the first album had some gently beautiful, original and genuinely otherworldly songs that sounded like no one else at the time (or since), this album is much less focused, the songs less melodic and slightly rambling and formless. A shame, really, considering how brilliant that first album is.
