AllMusic Review by

The second volume of Blank & Jones' So80s series offers another round of selections for serious fans of pop-oriented '80s club music. The CD edition consists of a serviceable DJ mix from the German duo, while discs two and three offer the tracks unmixed; the digital download version does not include the DJ mix. Among the tracks here are New Order's "Thieves Like Us [Original 12" Mix]," Simple Minds' "Promised You a Miracle [U.S. Remix]," Kissing the Pink's "Certain Things Are Likely [Original 12" Version"], and Fra Lippo Lippi's "Shouldn't Have to Be Like That." Overall, this volume is slightly more commercial in nature than the first volume.
