There are a few exceptions, however. Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise does a fine, country-tinged "Don't Bogart Me," and "Mary Jane," a Blue Mountain original, glows with the unassuming radiance of the group's other work. As for Vic Chestnutt, he gets extra points for "Weed (to the Rescue)," which concerns medical marijuana. Still, these efforts aren't able to compensate for the slew of overlong, meandering, unexpectedly purposeless duds on Hempilation 2. Despite its subject matter, the album definitely isn't smokin'.
