Oddly enough, COP International Records has chosen to release a second volume of their Electronic Challenge compilation. Unfortunately this sampler only serves a single purpose, to entice first time listeners to the Electro-Industrial genre. Anyone who has any experience with this music already would have acquired all of the tracks present here years ago. Regardless of the age of some of the tracks, it is a very diverse Electro sampler. Most of the big name acts from the last decade and a half are present as well as a few of the less well known acts. The surprise track of the compilation would definitely be yelworC's 'Blood in Face', the single track that is only available via import from Celtic Circle Records. Not that bad of a compilation, but one wonders why anyone would bother to release a collection of songs that can all be found elsewhere?
