Various Artists Cortex Volume 2
- Words: Rachel Swan
- Label: Follow Me
Ummm... elevator with an edge? In Volume 2, which features tracks reissued from 1977-Cortex dishes out the kind of super-kitsch tunes that Chick Corea might be playing if he took a lot of acid and joined the Average White Band. What results is a balmy collection of jazz-rock tracks, the kind of posterboard stuff that would suit a '70s exploitation film. Musically, the album's tepid: a synth dithering on the pentatonic scale, a little feedback-laced guitar, and a lot of thack-thwacky high-hat. If you're down for cheese' recommend the sing-songy "Regina" and the agreeably funky "Mister J."
