Expresso II is the eighth studio album released under the name Gong and the de facto second album by Pierre Moerlen's Gong. It released in February 1978. Although the album was issued by Virgin Records under the Gong name for contractual reasons, and the name Pierre Moerlen's Gong. Expresso II finds Pierre Moerlen's Gong at their peak. Like their previous studio release, Gazeuse, the album is instrumental, the music is very polished, the sound very clean. Vibes and xylophone dominate on this album, somewhat reminiscent of the sound Zappa achieved through Ruth Underwood on One Size Fits All just three years earlier. The first two tracks, Heavy Tune and Golden Dilemma, are the highlights here, partially due to the fact that the rest of the cuts all blend together and sound quite similar.
