3 stars It looks ,that Sanctuary Records released just a year ago huge (3CD) collection of Emerson movie soundtrack songs, continued with cleaning the vaults.

The second compilation is more eclectic ( first at least had the common idea - movies soundtracks), in fact you can find there very different pieces in different styles , sometimes recorded with star-musicians. More jazzy music as well.

And if each track by itself quite often is interesting, or even strong, that chaotic mix of styles , sounds and arrangements gave some strange feeling. At least for me it doesn't sound like album, even compilation. It's more like amateur home-made recorded collection of his beloved musician.

It should be very good addition for Emerson fan collection, with some really rare works. But for regular listener I think it sounds to raw and chaoticaly unfinished.
