On this second volume in the Songs for the Jet Set series, an actual concept truly starts to coalesce.

Volume 2 takes steps to remedy that stumbling block by giving the subgenre its own designation, "Cinema Pop," and by planting a few clues about the album's contents. For example, the inside liner-note graphics borrow the image of Forgetting - Various - Songs For The Jet Set Volume 2 Coburn disguised as a hippie from the psychedelic-era spoof, The President's Analyst.

It could point to the idea of the compilation as a sly parody of jet-setter pop from the period. On the other hand, it could be a celebration of said period, reveling in all the goofball appeal and kaleidoscopic allure of the time.

If the songs have anything to say about the matter, the answer probably lies closer to the latter because the music throughout is brilliantly executed and absolutely enchanting, absent of any of the detached irony or cynicism one might expect.

Although this series is not in any way about "artistic growth" and it could be argued that it is the direct antithesisthere is a sort of progression from the first album. Because most of the songs derive from actual soundtracks from the '60s, Vol. Some of the musical combinations are just plain weird and take on a bizarre cast that moves them past cutesiness and into almost scary-cool territory, such as Death By Chocolate 's "Zap the World," a freak-out campfire sing-along, and Wallpaper's "Man of Players Anthem (Radio Version) - Various - Hip Hop Hooray 2 a hip Bo Diddley -esque polka for cats that can look Forgetting - Various - Songs For The Jet Set Volume 2 even in sky-blue tuxedos.
