Just in case you didn't get enough from Metro One Collection, Metro Two Collection provides more laid-back downtempo grooves from a rather diverse crop of producers -- both known and not so known. A number of the producers who were included on Metro One Collection are also included here, such as Underworld ("Banstyle") and St. Germain ("Deep in It"). Again, there's a range here that most other nondescript mix albums don't approach -- whether taking hints from Latin jazz, Jamaican dub, or -- in Fatboy Slim's case -- Paul Hardcastle, the disc manages to put the pieces together in an admirable fashion. You could do much better, but you could also do far worse.
