Chapter 2 Of Words is all killer, no filler - an absolutely Upsetting collection (if you ignore the awful cover art). Featuring versions of such classic rhythms as "Words Of My Mouth" and "Curly Locks" as well as some of Scratch's wildest productions, Chapter 2 is out of sight. Motorycles sampled on "Forward Up", fire engines on "Sunshine Showdown Version", ravers by Dave Barker and I Roy as well as many other Upsetting touches will leave you reeling. However, there are also less manic songs like "Silver Locks" by The Upsetters (a very nice acoustic guitar version of "Curly Locks") to cool things down. This one is a must!
