This season's soundtrack is better than the original. The original was good at introducing themes, but lacked the depth and consistent quality to be really good. The Person of Interest: Season 2 Soundtrack, however, adds depth, new themes, and a softer side to the series' music. For a television soundtrack, this score is great; the music is diverse and has quality similar to that of some of television's greatest scores. There are emotional songs like "I Always Told Cal to Be Careful" and "Sorry I Tried to Kill You" as well as main theme driven songs like "Day 3191" and "God Mode" or even tense, action-packed songs like "Threat to National Security" and "All In." The soundtrack is well-rounded, but it lacks the really great songs: the songs that you have to have, or the songs you really remember. I enjoyed this soundtrack much more than the first, and hopefully, the soundtracks to come will get better. If you liked the first season's soundtrack, this one's worth the money.

Rating: 4.2 out of 5

Ramin Djawadi is making a name for himself as the Hans Zimmer or James Newton Howard of television, being the musician behind Game of Thrones, the upcoming show The Strain, the past short-lived show Flashforward, and this wonderful and masterful television series filled to the brim with action, suspense and paranoia.

The score for the second season is more diverse and expansive from the first season, of which only ran for 46 minutes, while season 2's score is 58 minutes. The score mixes non-traditional, orchestral sounds with synth and electronics, adding to the technological aspect of the show, and to the post-9/11 paranoia. Both scores are fantastic, but i do find the second season's score to be better. Now, i'm highly anticipating a season 3 score release because it had a couple more emotion-fueled cues and action tracks that are extremely memorable. Ramin Djawadi is definitely a name to keep eyes on, and hopefully The Strain turns out to be a successful show, because he and Guillermo del Toro worked together on Pacific Rim, which had a great and upbeat blockbuster score.

Great sounds from a great artist. I've always been a fan of Ramin Djawadi. I look forward to his newer tracks.

I don't mind listening to this album, over and over.

I love Ramin's work on this series and, while this CD could have easily been 2 discs to include more selections from the entire season, what's included here is still pretty good. Definitely a must for diehard POI fans

Ramin Djawadi may be getting attention for his Game Of Thrones score, but hopefully people realize he’s doing some great stuff every week on broadcast with Person Of Interest. Person Of Interest was created by Jonathan Nolan and is executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. So you know music is gonna be a big component of the show.

Season 2 rightfully continues what Ramin built for Season 1. What I immediately noticed is that this time around the score felt like a continuing narrative instead of a series of moments. I for one am not a huge fan of “case of the week” types of procedurals. I love season arcs and need them if I’m to get involved in a series. Ramin is definitely creating arcs here, and they are fantastic. The music itself is also engaging and peaks your interest. The use of a central motif in variations helps make the score tangible. The espionage quality of the music makes it exciting and engrossing. You do get sucked into this score very quickly. The score still has “moments” in that the pieces sometimes will feel specific to a particular moment. Even with the recurring themes I still felt a disconnection between tracks, and I guess part of that is because this hour of music is supposed to represent an entire season. However, we do get some nice lengthy tracks on this release so you get a real feel for the music doing its job.

Season 2 improves on the groundwork set up in season 1 by Ramin, and there is plenty to love with this release. This is an espionage score with a nice emotional layer underneath it all. The simple and recurring motifs make the score one that is easy to get engaged in, and one that you’ll want to revisit. Person Of Interest is a fantastic side of Ramin if you're looking for a break from him scoring dragons and Lannisters.
