A US release in a similar mode to the Moods series here. I haven't gotten any of the other Pure Moods albums simply because they duplicated too many songs I already had.

Pure Moods II is bookended by two Loreena McKennitt tracks. Featuring the same artist on a compilation album twice is somewhat of a rarity, and I'm not entirely sure why they did it, but Loreena is cool anyway. Never mind - there are another 14 artists featured, from Vangelis to Engima to Massive Attack and back. This album prompted me to buy at least two albums (Mezzanine and Sacred Spirit).

I'd like to take a moment to bring up "Theme from Harry's Game". I don't want to pick on the Pure Moods team, because this is a good track and well chosen for their compilation, but I now have six copies of this song on various CDs, four of them compilation albums.
