Picking up where the first volume left off, Gay Classics, Vol. 2: Outstanding is a continuous mix of gay club favorites obviously with a target market. Consisting primarily of hard-hitting house anthems, this is most definitely a mix made for dancing rather than home listening. And unlike its predecessor, Vol. 2 has several hits that were first legendary on the gay club circuit and later made their way into mainstream success, with Haddaway's "What Is Love" being the most prominent head-bobbing example. While the CD is targeted at the gay community, most casual listeners of popular dance music will find this an extremely enjoyable and accessible listen.
