3 stars Unlike the rather internally-detached Volume 1, this album is more "album-like". The spare solo songs are mixed up and chucked on a single disc. This makes for a very confusing ride that keeps altering it's direction. And you may/may not love/hate any one of these genres.

Ragtime, country, blues, big-band, jazz, boogie, pop, world, and even more ragtime.

[cross out where appropiate]

Although a little warmer and less serious in approach than Volume 1, there are simply too many styles here for everyone to appreciate. These songs could have made up the other half of the band's AMAZING solo albums if they weren't once again released under the now-deceptive ELP name. Like the first offering, I like some of it and hate the rest. But it really is a question of taste and nothing more. Neither of these albums belong here, in ELP's discography, or in progressive music.
