This new comp put out by the folks at Rock and Roll Purgatory comes much closer to heaven than hell for fans of raw, ribald rock. Less than a year after the release of the fine first installment of the series, Volume 2 offers an abundance of prime rockabilly, punk, and garage rock. Highlights include the Cenobites' breakneck thrashabilly ("My Mission"), the GC5's bruising, hello-from-the-gutter headstomp ("Straight Outta Luck"), the Nekromantix's equally funky and feral demon rock ("Horrorscope"), a real ripper from Stepsister ("Get My Way"), and dozens of others. With more than 50 bands spread over two discs, this package is ear-ringing and essential. As is some aspirin right about now.
