Tab Two: Tab Two

Who needs originality when you have craft? (Virgin 7243-8-4471-2-0; 66:14), the self-titled second entry from German duo Tab Two doesn’t have a lot of the former, but possesses a nearly adequate dose of the latter. Nearly that is: Saltine-crisp production and snappy instrumental work don’t quite erase the heard-it-before aftertaste that dogs these compositions. “Club Mambo” and the Latinized “Belle Affaire” get your head nodding, but not enough to make it worth the whole trip.
