I'm really glad that mr. Hulme & company decided to return to the idea of Morricone-esque western music, a sequel of sorts to "Slim Westerns", released in 1994. Their previous record called "Pink & Purple World of Dishonesty" was an attempt to explore jazz/noir side of things, but I don't feel that they succeeded. Second part of "Westerns" is a lot more compact than "Pink & Purple" and its a bit more active than the first part. There are all sorts of things thrown in a blender - Tom Waits-like vocals on "Hey, Mister" (reappearing on "Richard Brautigan"), Spanish horns on "El Mariachi Loco" etc. etc. Its not an easy listening record, by any means, but its still a good work and a worthy sequel to part 1.
