Bon Djerry - Mouse On Mars - 21 Again
Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner are better placed than most to tackle the uniquely hazardous task of putting out a double album.

Having seemingly purged the fitful bouts of excess from disc one, the other half of 21 Again finds Mouse on Mars getting a firmer grip on quality control.
