5.0 out of 5 stars The Emotional Side of Laura Branigan September 8, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After purchasing The Best of Branigan and Self Control, I definitely wanted more. I found this album and I was not disappointed. The songs are excellent and very emotional. Laura outdoes herself on all of her albums. My favorite songs are: Solitaire, Deep in the Dark, Close Enough, How Am I Supposed to Live Without You, I'm Not the Only One, Find Me and Don't Show Your Love. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Branigan 2--The Return of Gloria...I mean Laura April 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Laura Branigan really honed her style in her sophomore effort, which firmly established her in the ranks of 80's pop/rock women like Pat Benatar and Sheena Easton. Chalk up another winner for one of the 1980's best pop/rock goddesses.
Branigan 2-the Sequel, begins with the single "Solitaire" on a woman who's alone now after a bad relationship and it falls under reflective/breakup song. "Solitaire, it got so lonely/Solitaire, no one to hold me/Where were you when I played solitaire?" The melody reminds me of Sheena Easton's "Long Distance Love Affair" and has the same pace, although it rocks as hard as any of Benatar's material. A big highlight here! Getting this is not akin to playing poker--you'll hit the jackpot anytime.
"Deep In The Dark" features a monologue and is a forerunner to "Self Control" is rhythm and the chorus.
"Close Enough" is actually a positive love song that Journey could have tried to do, given the searing keyboard synthesizers. However, it's Laura's song hands down. She sings "Close enough to make it last/Now there's no turning back/We'll do it together." And to finalize the moment, she says, "And now, now the time has come/To keep the love we found just close enough."
"Lucky" tells of the woman's necessity to leave someone unfulfilling who was oblivious to her pain. The chorus and keyboards are akin to a muted version of "Gloria." It goes "Lucky, I said I hope you try and understand/Lucky, guess it's not like we planned/Lucky, you know I really really love you so/But Lucky, I still have to go." This could easily become a country song, given the right singer.
Then comes her cover of the Who's "Squeeze Box," tastefully done in the mid-paced Branigan style pop.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Treasure? August 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the first album, tape of any kind, that I called my own. Branigan 2 holds alot of memories and emotions for me, because, my girl friend at the time, bought this album for me, I bought her a little ring of some sort, but back to Branigan 2, I wore this tape, yes tape out listening to it, and loved every song on it, of course there is "Solitaire" and "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You", but there was also "Squeeze Box" probably one of my favorites of hers never released. This is one album now that Laura is no longer here, I must get reacquianted with, beacuse I did and always will love this album. This album was part of my childhood, and I know that sounds weird but it is true. Every song I hear now from Laura is going to be a painful listen, but hopefully I will be able to say at one point down the road, that listening to her music will make me smile again, but not right now. Laura you were and are an angel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent August 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am totally biased when it comes to Laura Branigan so know that. This is a pretty cool follow up cd and all the tracks are good. I especially love "Solitare" and her I think way underated version of "How am I supposed to live without you" you can just hear it in her voice, she was to me always such an incredible singer and was fortunate to have scene her live and is a great memory. She left us way to soon but she leaves behind such an incredible musical legacy

4.0 out of 5 stars A good second offering, but a bit too soon May 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Laura Branagin possesses one of the finest, most unusual voices of all female rock/pop singers. Her near five-octave range and powerful delivery were nearly operatic in quality and helped her to a tremendously successful career.
Branagin 2 features two of her better efforts, the tremendously successful Solitaire and the soul-searching How Am I Supposed to Live Without You. However, the album as a whole suffers from the dreaded sophomore jinx. It was forced into production by a studio hoping to capitalize on the success of the artist's first album, and has too little good or even mediocre supporting material to go along with the two hits.
Branagin's excellent voice rescues many of the weaker compositions on this album but, as a whole, Branagin 2 is rather weak. Only her remarkable voice and the superb "Solitaire" keep this album from dropping into three-star range.

Excellent CD, sounds perfect.
A great artist, very unfortunate he left so young, still had much to produce.
Thank you.
