AllMusic Review by

The first compilation to be released in conjunction with Nova Radio in 2012, Nova Tunes 2.5 features 19 tracks featuring on the playlist of the eclectic underground station which was founded by Jean-Francois Bizot in 1981. Highlighting its policy of showcasing genres largely ignored by the mainstream, this collection of reggae, jazz, world music, hip-hop, Latin, and electro tracks includes alternative artists from France such as JoeyStarr ("On Te Voit") and Zoufris Maracas ("Et Ta Mere"), the U.K. including Ben Howard ("The Wolves"), Baxter Dury ("Trellic"), and SBTRKT ("Right Thing to Do"), and the U.S. like Midnight Magic ("Beam Me Up"), Hanni El Khatib ("Dead Wrong"), and the Rapture ("In the Grace of Your Love").
