The second volume of Ultraman Max music starts off with the title music, and, as far as I could tell, it's no different than the version presented at the end of volume one. The album starts off with some nice action/suspense pieces. I especially liked track four; with its low brass, it sounded very Godzilla-esque. But a majority of the pieces are quiet by nature and very melodic.
This album is mainly symphonic pieces, which I can tell is more of Haijima's strong point anyway. There's a couple new variations on the Ultraman Max theme (track 13 in particular), but the DASH theme is missing completely. There are also two upbeat instrumental versions of the title song, followed by a song by Bad Scanners, who guest-starred in one of the episodes.
I like listening to this relaxing album, but with both Volume One and this second volume only roughly 80 minutes of music combined on the two CDs, it isn't as comprehensive as a collection that were made for Cosmos or Nexus.
