AllMusic Review by

Pure Moods was such an unexpected success that it launched a number of spinoffs and, eventually (and perhaps somewhat inevitably), Pure Moods, Vol. 2. Although it isn't quite as consistent as its predecessor -- George Benson's "Breezin'" feels out of place among these atmospheric cuts, although not nearly as much as Massive Attack's menacing "Teardrop" -- but fans of the first will still find it to be quite enjoyable, especially since it features Vangelis' "Chariots of Fire," Loreena McKennitt's "The Mummers' Dance," and the Dream Academy's "Life in a Northern Town," three major oversights not included in the first Pure Moods.
