    Everything on these two discs fits into the theme and flow.

    Patchy, maybe, but for the most part it's enormous fun.

    As a 36-song sequel, the album drags at times. But there's buried treasure here too. [Apr 2013, p.112]

    The sheer volume of ocean-weary crooning on this Depp co-produced comp is bound to cause some seasickness, though Tom Waits bark about rum-fueled heartbreak and Patti Smith coo about mermaids should stave off scurvy. [1 Mar 2013, p.66]

    It's equal in heft to the first one, and just as uneven.

    Really, it just suffers from sequel syndrome, as there’s a fine single-disc collection buried within some over-blown, try-hard choices.

    It works better in theory than in practice.
