The huge success of the first album of "Synthesizer Greatest" led inevitably in a sequel.

The sources are mainly comparable to the first episode. There is music of Vangelis, Jarre and Kraftwerk, but also more unknown tracks like "Roulette" (Future World Orchestra) or "Paranoimia" (Art of Noise). All tracks were performed by the Dutch musician and sound engineer Ed Starink who did by the way a quite good job.

The best tracks on this album are (imho) the "Bolero" (Maurice Ravel), so a classical theme, and the "Intergalactic Cruise", a medley created by Ed Starink incl. following tracks (also cover versions):

Moments in Love (Art of Noise)
Chase (Moroder)
Crockett's Theme (Hammer)
Oxygene 4 (Jarre)
Autobahn (Kraftwerk)
Chariots of Fire (Vangelis)

Thus this medley may be considered as a kind of reprise of the first "Synthesizer Greatest" album.

If you don't mind that this album contains only covers then it's definitely worth a listen.
