Various Artists Simply Good Music Volume Two
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Giant Step
Sure, you could argue that Raphael Saadiq‘s "I Know Shuggie Otis" is neo-soul, but that would sell it short in a way that the emotional vocals and wailing guitar never would. And you could say that Los Amigos Invisibles‘ "Esto Es Lo Que Hay" is nothing more than a reggaeton sabor del mes, but you‘d be glossing over the dub-like horns, beautiful harmonies, and infectious cuica. But more than any other track, it‘s "Your Day Is Done" by the Platinum Pied Pipers with Georgia that proves that this compilation‘s title is perfect: it‘s all good music, simple as that.
