Artist: Moods Series (Various)
The Moods series returns with a second installment, though the only returning artist from the original is Vanessa Mae. Series regulars Yanni and Enigma make their first appearances though, with "Aria" and "Sadeness" respectively. We're also graced with a Mike Oldfield rarity which I haven't found anywhere else - the extended version of "Moonlight Shadow".
Other items of interest: Celestial's chirpy upbeat instrumental version of an Irish lament, so different to the other versions I didn't recognise it until I linked the names and listened harder... "Fire Walk With Me" is, of course, the theme tune to Twin Peaks. "Only You" is another of my favourite songs for its emotion and instrumentation. Siva Pacifica's "Mana (Part 2)" is very Deep Forest-ish and could almost be Pacifique done properly instead of as a soundtrack.
An improvement on the first Moods album and one of the better world/new age compilations out there.
