I am surprised no one has yet shared his views on this album (or collection of unreleased material in fact). Since I was slightly negative towards the first Origin, here is my take on the second one.

Contrary to the first edition, here we find a lot more uplifting tracks from Magnus which seem more inspired and, in my opinion, better produced. Even the tracks from 2003 sound fresh today. Of course, you won't find real masterpieces here. But after all, there are reasons why they were not released during their year of production. Compare Lifeform (2005) to Insum, for instance, and you can see why the latter made the cut. Similar examples can be made for the other tracks as well.

However, though they are not better, they aren't bad at all. The second Origin delivers only consistent quality which will please any ambient listener. Grab it and enjoy it!
