Belle and Sebastian: Late Night Tales Volume 2

There are situations when this is the perfect album to play, but it is limited in its scope.


Forbidden Hollywood Collection, Vol. 2

Hooray for 'Hollywood': Second volume of '30s 'Forbidden' films is a fascinating collection.

Bruce Dancis

The Streets of San Francisco - Season 1, Vol. 2

Michael Douglas is dreamy, but The Streets of San Francisco is stuck in a time warp.

Rachel Kipp

Looking Back at Anger, or, We Always Have Paris

Anger's films are suffused with the stuff of the Romantic Id: dream-logic, transgressive eroticism and taboo subjects, attention to color and music, literary references, religous and mythical elements, experimental editing and superimpositions.

Michael Barrett

The Kids in the Hall, Vol. 2: The Best Of

The Kids are alright, even though they’re also a little strange.


Tokko, Vol. 2

Tokko Vol. 2's digressive sub-plots were so painfully tedious that I found myself wishing that it was just a slaughter-fest.

Erik Hinton

Various Artists: DukaDaGod Presents Dipset: More Than Music, Vol 2

Second installment in A&R/hypeman DukeDaGod’s Diplomats featuring mixtape series. Ya dig?

Gentry Boeckel

Tyrone Power: The Swashbuckler Box Set (1949)

Some favorite DVD box sets that will round out any classics collection.

Michael Barrett

Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs: Best of the Flatt & Scruggs TV Show, Vols 1 and 2 [DVD]

Throw together some top-shelf bluegrass, some cornball humor, and some cooking tips, and you've got yourself a show!


Voyage to the Bottom of Sea - Season 2, Volume 2

At times, some voyages to the bottom of the sea also mark a descent into the depths of ridiculousness.

Matthew A. Stern

Wim Wenders: Merging the Infinite Via the Enigma of Cinema

Like an abstractionist who refuses to discuss his inspiration, or an avant-garde artist who renders his icons through a vague and untouchable design, Wim Wenders can be both fascinating and frustrating.

Bill Gibron

Various Artists: Party-Keller Vol. 2

German rare groove DJ Florian Keller picks refreshments of soul, funk, and disco by contemporary producers.


Various Artists: Live at KEXP, Vol. 2

KEXP fundraising compilation delivers quality performances from some of indie rock's hottest talents...but takes very few chances.


Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea: Season One, Vol. Two

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is typically more caught up in stories about deterrence than outright conflict; hence, the talking heads and surprising paucity of giant monsters.

Mike Ward

Shakira: Oral Fixation, Vol. 2

Shakira is the truth, people, and she's proven it twice over in 2005. She's made the best pop album of the year.

Matt Cibula

Various Artists: Planet of the Popboomerang, Vol. 2

Roughly 150 minutes, 46 Songs, roughly 40 bands, two discs, one label. Pure pop fanatics rejoice. Friends, Australians, Pop music-trymen, lend us your ears.

Jason MacNeil

Various Artists: The Future of the Blues, Vol. 2

A standard cut-price sampler of 14 CDs on a new Canadian label, misnamed since, with a couple of exceptions, the music is syncretic pop/rock/world, into which the blues has been all too thoroughly homogenized.

Robert R. Calder

Andy Partridge: Fuzzy Warbles, Vol. 1 / Fuzzy Warbles, Vol. 2

For fans of Andy Partridge and his music, these first two Fuzzy Warbles are a wonderful way to pass the time until the next official XTC release.
