I love the music on this CD, as well as the music on the KH 1 soundtrack,

yet I believe the music in KH 2 has an edge over KH 1 because:

1. It has a lot more songs, even One-Winged Angel, whitch the KH 1 soundtrack lacks.

2. The music has more emotion in it. You can tell by the sound of almost every instrument that the song conveys something significant.

3. None of the songs annoy me(That means you, KH1 Gummy ship theme!)

4. And, most importantly, these songs take me to exactly where they are played. When Sacred Moon plays, I'm in TWTNW. When Desire For All That is Lost plays, I'm in the 1 fight that song is in.

5. Also, I'm glad its in Japanese, so I can't understand Passion. (Yay!)

I have one complaint though, why do the songs only play once, then stop?

On the KH1 soundtrack, the song repeats before it ends, making the song's last twice as long. Here, they just go once and thats it. Oh well, thats what the Repeat button is for.

Overall, this CD has allowed me to enjoy the music from one if the greatest games I've every heard whenever I want, so I award it the maximum rating of 5 stars. I hope KH3's music is as good (Or better) as this was.

The Kingdom Hearts 2 CD is just as, if not better, than the first one. I, personally, have both. I loved the first one, but the old songs on here are all different than the first ones, making it feel like a twist on a classic tune.

I love how this video game has incorporated Disney characters and songs, so it's like remixed versions of old Disney favorites.
Passion is a beautiful song by Utada Hikaru, and by far, is my favorite song on the entire album.

My only problem with this CD is that they, so far, have not released an English Version of this CD. I understand it's only like 5 songs, but it would be nice to understand the words. It's not a big issue, it's just a small blemish that I don't notice much. But, if they release an English Version, I will be pre-ordering it.

I purchased this CD back when it was first released, so I do not understand why the price has been changed so dramatically. But, I think for collectors, it's worth the price. I'd highly suggest this CD for Kingdom Hearts fans, and even Disney Fans, or collector. I have not been disappointed with this CD at all.

There is much that can be said for the music of a video game. Chiefly that, without it, the story and characters would not have the same impact on our emotions. Scenes of triumph and sorrow would be useless, and nothing would be the same. Music is important to everything, and Kingdom Hearts excels at making the most out of the music for their scenes and characters. Each song may be short, but it is full of promise, and I can't help but envision the scenes that I've seen over and over again every time I listen to the song that accompanies that scene in the game. It is well worth the purchase and has earned all of the five stars that I've given it.

If you played the game then you know how beautiful and amazing this soundtrack is. If you are ordering this from the United States, here's something you should know: this is the official JAPANESE soundtrack. That means that the theme and all the Atlantica songs are in Japanese (and with Japanese voice actors for the latter). But for me that just adds to its incredible-ness. It feels so much more authentic. This soundtrack also includes a few songs that were only used in Kingdom Hearts 2 ~Final Mix~. Another welcome surprise.

If you are a fan of Kingdom Hearts I would highly recommend this CD. Even though it is pretty expensive (or it was when I bought it ...) and the opening song, closing song (these two sound fine in Japanese), and singalong songs from the little mermaid level (I don't listen to the sing along song one anyways, they are equally as annoying in English) are in Japanese. The rest of the music is lovely and makes for good background music when studying or reading or whatever.

I give the above rating all stars for exactly what I stated. The fun times. Listening to this takes you back in into that wonderful world we love. You get to go to each world once more. If you've played the games you know what I'm talking about. If you are a Disney nut this is great to. It gives a feel of being in Aladdin's world or in the underworld. The choir parts can give it that dramatic intensity and the piano is touching. Overall A+.

just so everyone knows, the only video game soundtrack(as far as I know) that is in america is for the Halo series. You probably won't find a video game soundtrack in english. I guess there's not much of a market for it in america, as far as music goes. guess this isn't really a review, but I do play kingdom hearts: great music.

this is for everyone who said they were dissapointed about it not being in english.

This soundtrack was worth every single penny I spent on it and possibly more. It's very different from the first soundtrack which I was relieved to find out. It has more trumpets and drums which makes the CD sound more like a loud celebration. I had to get used to it. Passion is a good example. More guitars and everything. Love it, love it, love it

The CD has everything. From the tracks from every part of the game to the Songs Passion and Passion(after the battle). The only thing that I would say disappointed me was that it didn't have the english tracks Passion and Atlantica Songs. Far from that its an awesome buy.

If you enjoyed the game and also enjoy video game music, pick this up. I'm sure the price is alittle high, but I'm just one of those that really enjoys video game music and if you enjoyed the music while playing the game I suggest you pick this up.
