AllMusic Review by

The second in the series of "soulful deep house lounging" doesn't include a wealth of important, individualistic tracks, but many of the inclusions are fine: Jody Watley's languorous vocal on "Saturday Night Experience" begins the first disc with class and the Blaze remix of Ananda Project's "Breaking Down" keeps the focus on New York/New Jersey garage. Other highlights by Miguel Migs (the sublime "Dubpusher") and Mondo Grosso keep the grooves deep on the first disc, while the second breaks out of the gate with "MAW's Theme" and keeps on pushing with tracks from Fantastic Plastic Machine, fellow Japanese producer Susumu Yokota, and a nice samba-themed Can 7 remix of the De la Soul/Chaka Khan collaboration "All Good." Still, Stereo Sushi isn't the usual 12" wrap-up for those who don't buy vinyl; both sets are unmixed, which leaves a bit lacking.
