4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great One July 9, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Pixar never does what I expect, but what they do is always fantastic. The same is true of "Cars 2". Rather than just making a rehash of the first movie, they made a completely new movie. And a very good movie at that.

Same with the soundtrack. I was a little disappointed when I saw that Randy Newman wasn't doing the soundtrack for this movie, but then I saw the movie and realized that the new soundtrack went perfectly with the new movie. Great job Michael Giacchino (and Pixar)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good companion to the film. July 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Like many other soundtracks, this is an album better appreciated after seeing the film (which was great by the way). This album features five new songs, including Weezer's cover of The Cars "You Might Think" as well as a track sung in Japanese. The rest of the disc consists of instrumentals composed by Michael Giacchino. The enhanced portion features among other things, the music video of "You Might Think", an image gallery and three movie trailers. If you enjoyed the film, you will enjoy the soundtrack.

Michael Giacchino has done it again. He has composed a superb musical score to another Pixar film. Cars 2 will be a fun family movie just judging by the music. I could listen to Giacchino's musical compositions. all day long. "Porto Corsa" is my favorite instrumental piece of music here. It sounds very heroic. "Mater The Waiter" is my other favorite composition here. It sounds very playful. "The Radiator Springs Grand Prix" is an instrumental piece that captures the excitement of a car race. "Blunder And Lightning" is an instrumental piece that is indicative of the danger and excitement in the film. This soundtrack also contains five songs that are diverse and fun to listen to.

My favorite tune is "Collision Of Worlds". This is an up tempo duet by Brad Paisley and Robbie Williams. Both of these singers have contributed to other Pixar movies before, but this song is probably the best by either of them. This song is about acceptance and friendship between cars from different worlds. "Mon Coeur Fait Vroum" is a French song by a singer named Benabar. It has a light cool tone to it. I love this song. "You Might Think" is an excellent cover of the Cars classic tune. This song is very upbeat. Brad Paisley contributes a second song entitled "Nobody's Fool". This is a good country song. Brad's vocals are so touching on this love song. The music on this soundtrack makes me want to see this movie even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun and enjoyable listening September 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought for my 2 year old because he was humming this song all day long. His smile was a mile wide when he heard the music in the car. The Fin McMissile theme runs throughout the soundtrack and is very catchy. Great music and very fun to drive to and you'll find yourself humming that theme all day long too.

Giacchino and Pixar go together like peas and carrots. Ratatouille got him his first Oscar nomination and Up won him his first Oscar. So it wasn't surprising when it was announced that he would be taking over for Randy Newman on the Cars franchise. I don't know exactly what warranted Newman losing scoring duties, but it probably was because production on Cars 2 started while Toy Story 3 was finishing up. I don't know how Pixar does things but I would like to think they have their composers involved early on in the process. Whatever the reason this is the score we have now.

The Cars 2 score is pure fat-free joyous scoring from Giacchino. The way I can describe it is if someone took the song "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers and turned that into a feature score. The score has 1 spy infused theme and let me tell you that you will become very familiar with this theme by the end of the experience. The music is monothematic but I never got tired of it. Mater has some southern infused banjo plucking but most of the music stays in the spy realm. To be honest there isn't much else to discuss with the score without beating it to death. This is a very plain and simple score that ends up being rather fun because of the amount of character and sonic identity Giacchino pumps into it. It's in no way as good as Ratatouille, Up or The Incredibles. It also lacks an emotional side to it and that means the score doesn't bury that deep. Then again when you look at how plain and simple the Cars movies are the score fits like a glove.

This is not Giacchino's best, but it's certainly not his worst. This score has all the right elements to be a fun summer ride for the kids. I enjoyed the style he went with to give it the 60's spy feel the movie demanded.
