AllMusic Review by

Though the second Nude Dimensions volume doesn't depart too far from the first volume, neither in terms of track selection nor mixing, this mix by Mauricio Aviles is nonetheless nothing short of wonderful; a welcome addition to the series that should delight anyone who has enjoyed any of the other Nude Dimensions volumes. Much like the other volumes, this mix begins with a few great vocal tracks -- Bougie Soliterre's "Superficial," the Petalpusher vocal mix of Blue Six's "Pure," the dub mix of Undercover Agency's "I Need You in My Life," and the Petalpusher dub mix of Aquanote's "True Love" -- before heading into more unpredictable territory halfway through. It's futile to debate whether this is a better mix than its predecessor or its successor in the Nude Dimensions series; all are wonderful mixes that sound very similar, both in terms of track selection and mixing. However, as similar as this volume is to others, there are still enough surprises here to make it worth your efforts seeking it out. And, besides, even if there are few surprises here for those familiar with other volumes, it's still a wonderful mix with lots of sexy vocals and a laid-back tempo that makes the album feel incredibly dreamy.
