An excellent follow-up to the first volume, released in 2010. A similar pattern is evident, mixing hypnotic synths, hippie grooves, driving guitar riffs and ambient chill-outs. Overall I would say volume 2 is on a par with the first release. Much is drawn from a similar palette, including return visits for the likes of Neu!, Can, Popol Vuh, Gila & Faust. As you might expect, this selection has a higher quota of lesser-known gems. It was a joy for me to be introduced to the magnificent voice of Sergius Golowin and the pulsating synth of Rolf Trostel. Once again the production values are of the highest quality with the songs and tunes sounding like they've been newly recorded. Despite a few weaker tracks, this is clearly a perfect way to dip into this glorious period of German music.
