Anyone heard it yet? I've heard a few tracks on 1xtra and they sounded pretty good. And how do the lash and Sway etc tracks work in it?

Here's the review I put in for FACT:

Run The Road: Volume Two (679)

They've taken the bold move of packing the sequel to the peerless RTR compilation full of exclusive tracks. There's plenty in the way of first class Grime (Big Seac's "Nah, Nah", JME's "Serious Remix", Doctor and DaVinche's "Gotta Man") but too much plain old UK Hip-Hop (Klashnekoff and Sway) and again an eccentric inclination to represent the practically non-existent axis of female Grime. Even if Mizz Beats "Saw It Coming" is an excellent production, why is it here in place of a Target or Aftershock joint? It's a good collection, the accompanying DVD is an excellent bonus, and it'll stand on it's own merits, but it's not what the scene needs, which is a Solid Gold Grime primer folk can pick up at HMV.

it's pretty good, worth it to see j.m.e. doing the rubixks cube and doing stunts on his bmx, and to see jammer falling off one of those mini-motorbikes.
