    Rufus Wainwright's "Jimbo Jambo," an example of the jaunty exoticism of the age that might be a little troubling to modern listeners. On the whole, however, Boardwalk Empire, Vol. 2 is an expansive, entertaining soundtrack that captures just how thoroughly the show crafts its mood and atmospheres.

    Even if they may sound dated, there’s a reason these tunes are collectively considered as additions to The Great American Songbook.

    While it’s a novelty to hear 21st-century artists stretch so far out of their comfort zones, several sound out of their depth.

    On this second volume of Boardwalk songs, a variety of crooners and warblers are paired with the redoubtable revivalists Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks.
