The second installment of the phenomenal compilation album Pinoy Ako which was released simultaneously with the launching of an equally phenomenal hit TV show Pinoy Big Brother, is now out. Dubbed as Pinoy Ako 2, the album is composed of 12 tracks from various Philippine local bands.
Like its predecessor, the album cover is of course the famous head wearing a salakot (Philippine local hat). But unlike it’s predecessor, this new album does not have the spunks of the songs in the first album. Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga’s Sikat Ako, which is the new Pinoy Big Brother theme song, doesn’t have the sentimentality and novelty of Orange and Lemons’ Pinoy Ako. But there are some noteworthy tracks and these includes, Kamikazee’s Mundo ng Komiks, Budoy’s (of Junior Kilat) version of Pinoy Ako, Imago’s Akap Ka and of course, Sandwich’s Masilungan.
If you have the bucks to spare, buy it. If not, you know what to do. 😉
