Popular Toronto DJ Anabolic Frolic returns for the second volume of his Happy 2b Hardcore series on Moonshine. Unfortunately, little has changed since the first volume. The happy hardcore anthems still blast beats at ultra-fast bpms, accompanied by more than enough synth melodies to hum along to -- or blow your rave whistle to -- and also enough candy mentality to evoke plenty of E-inspired, hug-friendly cuddle puddles. Hints of drum'n'bass appear every now and then, but for the most part, this album sticks to the standard happy hardcore template that a small niche audience of devotees has come to love and a much larger majority has come to hate.
