Buzz Ballads, Vol. 2 [2009]

Buzz Ballads, Vol. 2 [2009]



The second installment of Razor & Tie's Buzz Ballads series gathers more post-grunge hits into one nostalgic package, stacking the likes of Creed, P.O.D., and Hoobastank against such seasoned acts as Bush, Live, Collective Soul, and Hole. As with the original Buzz Ballads CD, there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to this volume's track list, and some songs (particularly Live's "Selling the Drama" and Bush's "Swallowed") are only ballads by the loosest definition of the word. Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger" still packs a punch nearly 15 years after its release, however, and Adam Duritz's performance on "Round Here" is sincere enough to cancel out the gruff, postured theatrics of Creed's Scott Stapp (whose signature ballad, "With Arms Wide Open," kicks off the disc). This disc isn't the same nostalgia fest as its predecessor -- too many of its songs were released in the 2000s, and none of them are particularly memorable -- but Buzz Ballads, Vol. 2 should appeal to some listeners, particularly those with a stomach for post-grunge's new millennium makeover.
