V/A – Fairy World II

Prikosnovénie seems to have made their various artists release Fairy World into a series, as they now released part two. Again you get a cd filled with music that shows the style of the label: fairy world music. For those who are not familiar with the sound it is world and folk music made with an open mind and various music influences but always with a fairy (tale) atmosphere.

Most of the label’s artists are of course present on this cd so it serves as a good introduction to new listeners. But, as the cd comes in a beautiful booklet and features some previously unreleased material also fans of the label will be pleased.

From the opening track by Pinknruby to the last tunes by Caprice, you are drawn into a dreamworld inhabited by unknown creatures and surreal landscapes. Even though the more rock orientated tracks by Collection D’Arnell Andrea and Misstrip are more down to earth, the overall atmosphere on the record is otherwordly.

Highlights are the fantasy world/folk tracks by Flëur and Ivo Sedlacek. But most of the featured musicians are worthwhile. Thus a very fine collection from a very nice label.
