With the exception of Jakob Dylan, I've never heard of the other artists featured on the Friday Night Lights Original Television Soundtrack Volume 2 before, but I really enjoyed listening to the entire soundtrack and being introduced to the sounds of these new-to-me artists.
My favorite track was If it's the Beaches--such a pretty song, with lyrics that are just so beautiful: If it's the beaches/If it's the beaches' sands you want/Then you will have them/If it's the mountains' bending rivers/Then you will have them...
Other songs that I thought stood out were Sway, Something Good This Way Comes (I'm a fan of Jakob Dylan), and Killed Myself When I Was Young--a song that I thought was really thought-provoking.
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the Friday Night Lights Original Television Soundtrack Volume 2 despite not watching a single episode of Friday Night Lights or not having heard of majority of the artists, and I'm really glad that I had a chance to listen to it because I've discovered many new artists that I'm eager to hear more of and now have some great songs I can keep listening to over and over.
