Volume 2 is more consistent and enjoyable than Volume 1. At times on Volume 1 it would get so repetitive that you would fins yourself pressing the 'skip' button just once too often. There was good material on Volume 1, it's just that there is more on Volume 2. Apart from Chicago Underground Council's repetitive track, there is much to admire on this double CD collection of some of the best material on the excellent Peacefrog label. Insync versus Mysteron offer up some wonderful Detroit-styled electro-techno. Maxwell House's surprising guitar-based song is as refreshing as it is exceptional. Theo Parrish gives us some jazzy deep house so reminscent of Peacefrog's output. More jazz-based techno material comes in the shape of Ian O'Brien's superb track. All the contributions on here are superb, with those of John Beltran and Stasis among the most memorable.
