Better than volume 1
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Being a proud owner of the first four volumes in the "Rebirth..." series, I must say that this is my absolute favorite (of course without slighting the great music found on the other albums). Volume 2 starts out with the great song, "Crazy" by Outside which has an in your face drum beat and an infectious sing a long scat chourus; the album then moves on through such an eclectic mix of artists and genres with standouts by Ronny Jordan, Palmskin Productions, and DJ Krush. The song, "Aftermath " by Tricky may be one of his finest songs (it's the kind of song that may be a little too obscure for radio formatting, but it is still very listenable and not as weird as some of his later stuff). As with all good acid jazz compilations, this cd shows why the music is so hard to categorize since it weaves in and out of the realms of bebop,hip hop, world, dance,and free jazz , but don't let that scare you away from this cd; if you are a true music fan and are open enough to try new stuff , there really is something for everybody on this album- 5 stars aren't enough!"
