Product Description

High School Musical 2 is the highly anticipated follow up soundtrack to the MUSIC PHENOMENON of 2006, High School Musical which is Quadruple Platinum and has broken multiple singles records! High School Musical 2 will be the TV movie and soundtrack event of the year. Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical 2 Premiere is 8/17/07

Amazon.com

Fans of High School Musical can breathe easy: Based on this soundtrack, the sequel is just as good, and perhaps even better. Though its trailer asked "Are you ready for the start of something new?" HSM2 isn't turning the franchise into The Wire, and really is more of the same--which is, of course, totally fine by us. One of the most energetic tracks is Chad and Ryan's musical/baseball number "I Don't Dance," propelled by a cool big-band swing motif (fans of director Kenny Ortega's choreographic work for Xanadu will be reminded of that movie's mash-up of disco and swing in the "Dancin'" number). Once again Troy and Gabriella get the ballads, but "You Are the Music in Me" is a fine one and doesn't get bogged down in syrup. It also gets reprised by Troy and Sharpay in a rockier and arguably better version. This is typical of the fact that, overall, the bouncier tracks fare best: "All for One" (with its handclaps and surfy guitar licks), the single "What Time Is It" (the time of our lives, of course!), "Work This Out" (complete with percussive, well, workout). Of course everybody's favorite brother-sister team, Ryan and Sharpay, gets a couple of great vehicles: "Fabulous" and the zany, Hawaiian-flavored "Humuhumunukunukuapua'a," which more than anything else sounds like a tribute to the Disney princess of the 1960s: Annette Funicello. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

The soundtrack to "High School Musical 2" is great!
Kris King
Every song is catchy and for the most part very upbeat so it makes drives so much more enjoyable for me and the kids.
T Rose
Great CD for kids who love the movie, but can get tiring for parents who've heard it over and over.

The songs from High School Musical 2 are not better or worse than the songs from High School Musical because they are equally great! However, these songs are very different from the ones from the first movie, but they are still great! I will include some spoilers from the movie to describe the songs, so do not read this if you do not want the plot spoiled for you. In the second movie, school's out and everybody is ready to enjoy their summer vacation. Seeking revenge for what happened to her and her brother (Ryan) in the first movie, Sharpay makes her father hire Troy at their country club in an attempt to separate him from Gabriella. Unfortunately for Sharpay, her plan backfires and Troy scores everybody else a job at the country club: Gabriella (now his girlfriend), Chad (his best friend), Taylor (Gabriella`s best friend), and the rest of the Wildcats are now employed! Plus, the country club's Talent Show is coming up and Sharpay must act quick before Troy and Grabriella wow everyone again. What will happen to Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan, Chad, Taylor? The story is resolved musically with the spectacular songs from the very anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie. In my opinion, each song individually deserves an A+++ for their uniqueness. This is over thirty minutes of rock and pop (and possibly hip-hop, depending on how you categorize "I Don`t Dance") that little kids, teens, and adults will enjoy. The songs have their own little message hidden within, and the music itself is very appealing. I already know most of the songs by heart! Anyway, this is a must-have for fans of the first movie and anyone who enjoys good music. The song titles are in capital letters, the singers in parenthesis, and a description of each song after the two dashes.Read more ›

I know what you're thinking: Are these songs good enough that you'll be able to stand hearing them, like, a gazillion billion times? The answer is -- with just a couple of exceptions -- yes!

Certainly the most catchy and wholesome pop album this year, this 38-minute soundtrack features songs that are as catchy as commercial jingles and full of good messages, yet just varied and nuanced enough that they don't drive you mad. And, even though there's nothing as fun as "Stick to the Stuff You Know," overall these tunes are better than those in the original film. (Here's that soundtrack: High School Musical.)

In fact, many of the songs are pretty good. "You Are The Music In Me" is a sincere, catchy duet by Gabriella and Troy (Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron) that uses a gospel chorus to rise above nearly everything ever cranked out by today's dime-a-dozen pop tarts. "Everyday" (also Gabriella and Troy) is in the same vein, a Britney-esque bouncer with a finale that seems literally straight out of a black church. The staccato rhythm of the boy-band rocker "Bet On It" (Troy) recalls the best of Michael Jackson, while "All for One" is a hand-clapping shout-out that hints, a little, at Sheryl Crow's "Soak in the Sun."

The only downside? Since they're nearly all high-energy showtunes, these numbers are meant to be played loud. Better have headphones in the back seats of your SUV -- or at least plenty of Tylenol in the glovebox!

This CD is AMAZING! Most of the songs are wonderful! My favorite is "Gotta Go My Own Way" I Also Like "Fabulous" and "I don't Dance". They are all great songs and I'm sure that once I learn them, I'll love them! And I think you will too!

The first high school musical was very fresh. It was clear, pure, and not overdone. The clarity of the singing and well written music was what made the first album sell so well. In this era of remixed pop where you can't honestly discern whether the artist is actually singing, the first album broke the mold, and was a success because of it.

This sequel, while still catchy, has unfortunately lost the charm and magic that made the first HSM a success. While the vocals themselves are still up to par, and the lyrics alone are up to scratch, poor editting tarnished what could have been a gleaming sequel. Digitizing the voices hides the soulful sound that was infectious in it's predecessor, and over mixing with backup singers, and clutter in general distracts the listener from what they are actually wanting and expecting to hear. The accompaniment overpowers the vocalists, and the sounds and textures of teen pop music seems jarringly out of place in comparison to the crisp and crystalline timbre of the original.

But, I will give credit to the vocalists. They were good [as usual], but their thunder was stolen by poor editing and mixing. This music is still very popular among younger listeners but unfortuantely, older listeners who fell in love with the original, will have to hope that the producers return to their roots when the third installment is released.

Robbie Nevil was universally known as a genius after releasing the song C'est La Vie back in the 80s. Quite simply the best 80s song there was. Now you combine his skills with the finest group of young actors this side of Eight is Enough and you have the greatest soundtrack ever created. Every song on this platter is a certified hit. Certified by my daughter, who knows every song and dance. You get Sharpay's snotty attitude, Troy's total awesomeness, Chad's goofy hair and the positively mesmorizing Vanessa Hudges. I used to think Purple Rain by Prince was a good soundtrack and that Footloose was a solid effort, but this thing makes those two sound like a bus running over a pipe 700 times. That would be horrible!!! Swiper, no swiping!!!!! Oh Maaaaaannnnn!!!

I burned all of the songs off this into my ipod and it has taken my performance at the gym to a new level. I have actually coreograffed an entire dance to "What time is it" while running on a treadmill. Any trendsetters in the room? I'm raising my hand right now baby because the stakes are high!! I'm all in against Scotty Ngyugen with pocket threes. Let's roll it!!

Zac actually sings in the sequel
Drew Seeley was definitely the singer in the first movie. if you listen during a couple of the songs you can hear the difference between with Zac and Drew singing... especially in the very beginning of Breaking Free.
