It is quite rare these days to find high quality compilations featuring female artists, but this is an absolute exception. 'Lilith Fair 2' contains a wonderful mix of old and new artists, all of whom sing with great passion and vibrancy. The music comes across as being meaningful and listenable, and successfully captures the diversity which has really brought women's music to the fore. Standout tracks include 'Angels' which is beautifully sung by Sarah and Emmylou, 'Island' by Heather Nova (she truly has an angelic voice), 'Sway' by Bic Runga (she epitomizes warmth and tenderness) and 'In the Ghetto' by the brilliant Natalie Merchant. Moreover, this compilation exudes all that is great about women's music and it truly will not disappoint. If only there were more compilations (other than the 'Lilith series) besides this!

This CD is pretty good. Unlike the first volume, the range of music here stretches slightly beyond the usual folky accoustic types. You see some African (Angelique Kidjo), some rap (Queen Latifah), some trip-hop (Morcheeba) and some alternative rock (Tracy Bonham/Holly McNarland/Wild Strawberries) as well as some ethereal-type music(Sinead O/SarahMc/Emmylou)
My personal favourites are Sinead O's "Fire on Babylon", Angelique K's "Never Know", Queen Latifah's "Life", Morcheeba's "The Sea", Bic Runga's "Sway", Holly Mc's "Elmo" and (my most favourite of all) SarahMc/Emmylou's duet "Angel". WOW! That song had me gaping in wonder. Sarah and Emmylou's melodic vocals beautifully melding together on such a beautiful song creates one thing ; BREATHTAKING MAGIC. Sarah's playing Delibes' Flower Duet at the beginning makes it even more magical.
If you're sick of hearing all those boybands/teen implants (aka Britney Spears)/wailing divas as well as other pop radio stuff) AND you really wanna hear some good quality music, this CD may be your welcome respite. Don't just listen to the samples ; not only do they make the songs sound awful,they also don't reflect the songs in their entirety.
Why the four-star treatment ? Well, I wish there are more artist collaborations like Sarah/Emmylou 's "Angel". Without the collaborations, history will not be able to see that special spirit that makes Lilith Fair. And where are some of the vital artists that appeared on last years tour ; Lauryn Hill, Lucinda Williams..?
To Nettwerk Productions and Arista Records ; PLEASE release the collaborations CD as you had originally planned.

Thank you Sarah for exposing the public to artists that otherwise would go unknown. It is worth buying the C.D. for "Angel" alone. How do you make a great song even better ? Oh I don't know add Emmylou Harris. People, this lady is a national treasure who has never gotten her props because the so called radio and record excutives have either labeled her or haven't labled her properly. Do yourself and your ears a favor, after buying this C.D. and Vol.III of Lilith Fair, start your Emmylou collection. Give her the support and love that she greatly deserves !!!

OK I HAVE GONE TO HEAVEN! HEARING SARAH AND EMMYLOU SING ANGEL TOGETHER IS WORTH EVERY PENNY YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS CD! EMMYLOU HARRIS CAN SING WITH ANYBODY AND SOUND GOOD, AND ANGEL IS ONE THE BEST SONGS EVER WRITTEN! THE OTHER TRACKS ARE OK, BUT ANGEL BLOWS ALL THE OTHER SONGS AWAY! THE HARMONIES ARE AMAZING! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!

I wrote a review for this CD several months ago, saying I didn't like it apart from a few songs. After that, I put the CD away. I recently brought it out again, put it in the CD player, and realized "Hey, there's some good stuff on here." I didn't like it at first. Now I love it. If you are wanting to try some Lilith Fair, my advice would be to borrow this from someone... Listen to the whole thing a few times, even if you don't like it the first time. For some odd reason, it just grows on you till you are playing it nonstop.

Sinnead O'Connor starts the album off with her hyper-fast vibrato blasting like a heavily caffeinated siren; Lisa Loeb adds a dose of Alanis-y bile to her still precious rendition of I Do; Natalie Merchant covers Miles Davis... blah blah blah. Who are we kidding here? Those songs are great and all, but the main dish here is Sarah and Emmylou's duet of Angel. Sure, most people have already been desensitized to Angel thanks to its radio hit status. This duet, however, pumps enough new life into the song to revive David Caruso's career. The energy springs from the convergence of the concert's live vibe and the singers vocal rapport. Sarah's voice swoops with the delicate fervor of the northern lights while Emmylou rumbles like an enchanted thunderstorm. The two collide during the chorus, augmenting the song's originally solo empathy with echoed understanding. Emmylou takes over for Sarah for the second verse, adding her own brand of earthly urgency to it. After hearing it, I felt elated yet sad, because from now on I have nothing more to live for. If anyone hears this song and remains unmoved, that person is a soulless demon and should be staked on the spot!
