(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a great collection!! I bought this CD to play during the cocktail hour at my wedding reception, since the DJ will not be set up yet and we will just be playing one CD over the reception hall's sound system. I wanted something uptempo, lively, fun, amusing, and appealing to a wide range of ages, and this is it! These are the songs you (and your parents) have heard and loved for years sung by the singers you've loved to listen to. It's also a collection of songs with a real sense of humor and tongue firmly in cheek. Just when you realize that the lyrics to "Wives and Lovers" are REALLY pre-feminist (maybe more like Neanderthal), but you love the song anyway, you notice that it's followed up by that great Peggy Lee version of "The Boy from Ipanema". The mix of tempos and styles and ratio of male to female singers is perfect. I'll listen to this CD (so will my mother) for years."
Lives up to its title!

"Like its predecessor, this CD stands out as a collection of all-vocal tracks, while other Ultra-Lounge CDs feature a few vocal songs at most and many volumes are totally instrumental. That's something all you lounge lizards out there should probably know, since most people I know definitely prefer either vocal or instrumental lounge music and that will affect how you feel about this CD. That fact aside, this is every bit as swingin' and enjoyable a collection as the first volume. The inclusion of the classic "Boy From Ipanema" alone makes this an album worth owning if you are a martini-swilling night owl. However there are many other classic tunes here as well and if vocals are your thing, this is one of the better compliations out there to throw on when you're trying to seduce someone in your shag-carpeted living room over a couple of cosmopolitans."
This album kicks!

"I'm a big Ultra Lounge fan, but this album is really special. I can't resist Gorme's 'Frenesi', Darin's 'Charade', Bennett's 'With Plenty of Money and You', and Wilson's 'Lot a Livin to Do'. I can't really resist any of the songs. One song, in particular, is a real wacky, anachronistic whopper--Snootie Little Cutie. I make all my friends listen to it. The other songs are timeless."
