I Loved the show and I love the music.

Very disappointed in the Customer care aspect of this transaction, and I'm glad it was only a small purchase, otherwise I'd have raised hell!

Love anything that is Miami Vice with the original Crockett & Tubbs.

NOTE: Though this may appear to be a long review, keep in mind it is designed for those who want to know nearly everything about this product. Thank you.

Miami Vice II: New Music From The Television series "Miami Vice" was the second of its kind. Rather confusingly, Miami Vice II covers songs from both the show's second and third season, not just the second, as the title seems to suggest. Rather, the "II" designates it as the second soundtrack. Complicating matters more is the fact that the VHS for the second season opener is also called "Miami Vice II", and this album would seem to be the accompanying soundtrack. It actually does include some songs from the two-hour second season premiere episode, but it goes beyond that as well.

Miami Vice II opens perfectly with the whispery, shadowy "Mercy" by former Sex Pistols(!) guitarist Steve Jones. Serious and moody, the song is the musical equivalent of the visual shift to darker colors in the show at the time of this album's release. It's a great opener for the album and a great song as well. It appeared in the third season episode "Stone's War".

The next track is "Send It To Me" by Gladys Knight and the Pips. Unlike "Mercy", which appeared on another additional album apart from Vice II (Jones's 1987 solo debut), "Send It To Me" is unique to this album. Interestingly, it is never heard in the series. "Send It To Me" is a bit brighter than the first song and eases you into the album more. But it is no less slick; the smooth, synth-laced pop-R&B trappings are also one of the song's strengths. A 12" single included an extended version, an acapella, and an instrumental of the song.

"Take Me Home" follows, and, honestly, no description can do justice to this song.

Supposedly this soundtrack was almost forgotten and not as popular as the original Miami Vice soundtrack;Even I almost forgot about it's existence. That was until I played the vinyl version and later purchased the cd ! I was amazed at the varied styles and artists featured. This time around the music is more in tune with the pop sounds of the late 80's.The opening track performed by Steve Jones (Mercy) is brooding and moody ! This time around a love duet ballad is introduced into the mix performed by Patti LaBelle and Bill Champlin. There is a very rare track by the now defunct group Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry called Lover . The Damned peforms a pre-alternative mod rock instrumental number called In Dulce Decorum. Jackson Browne performs a somber tracked called Lives in the Balance. Jan Hammer returns with more of his hi-tech synth instrumentals as evident in Crockett's Theme. the only dance R&B pop track is performed by Gladys Knight and the Pips called Send It To Me...
The end result is that this soundtrack deserved more attention (and still does) than it received when initially released ! In fact, since the first soundtrack was overplayed on radio stations across the country when it was popular, Miami Vice 2 was overshadowed and ignored. However, it may be an 80's tv soundtrack project worth discovering again for it's catchy collection of tracks by some rare artists !...

I bought this CD six months ago because I am a Miami Vice fan. I didn't expect it to be good, but it is wonderful. "In Dulce Decorum" is incredible! This is a hard-to-find CD. You will love it! I enjoy it more with each playing!

We're now in the second/third season of Vice. The series is now more focused on Sonny Crockett, Ricardo Tubbs and perhaps Lieutenant Martin Castillo. Some details are interesting in the albun, "In Dulce Decorum" has no lead singing (it had on the show ). "Lover" and "Send it to Me" are actually not present in any episodes ("Lover" is although a perfect Miami Vice song, and Brian Ferry's subtleties and refinement fit perfectly to it). Here you will find "Crockett's Theme", a famous hit, in a proportion not common for a TV series. It could have more Jan Hammer music, but that's ok, otherwise it would be the entire CD. Jan Hammer original music for Miami Vice should be released separately (I could not imagine how much CDs a collection like that would take, but surely, it'd be a wise move. Check Jan Hammer's "Escape from Television", essentially his Miami Vice solo albun, and "Too Much to Loose", also containing some Vice music).
Altough the first is the first, and its selections were really great, perhaps this second volume, even not being such moving as the first one, describes better the Miami Vice style, its atmosphere. Miami Vice made music a character itself, not a background for story (far from that), not an ornament. Music was an intrinsic part of the drama. Through the pop beat, one could see the profound meanings of the scenes (In different but related ways, Kubrick's Clockwork Orange does that to classical music).
Hearing those songs for a Miami Vicer means getting close to the heart of Miami Vice logic... and translating it into true meaning.

I first bought Miami Vice and Miami Vice II albums as cassettes when I was driving over the road and only later went to CDs. Like the first Miami Vice collection, this one is not perfect, and many quality songs are missing, like Foreigner's "I want to know what love is", and Ted Nugent's fabulous and still hard-to-get "Little Miss Dangerous". Still, this album provides a wide array of great and rarely heard performances: Steve Jones' haunting "Mercy", Gladys Knight's "Send it to me", Phil Collins' "Take me Home", Patti LaBelle with Bill Champlin singing their powerful duet, "The Last Unbroken Heart", Roxy Music's rare and soulful "Lover", Andy Taylor's equally infrequent but hard-driving "When The Rain Comes Down", and Jackson Browne's protest song over American involvement in Central America, "Lives in the Balance" (which I find wrong-headed, but a wonderful song nonetheless. Even Marx said one could not take the politics of artists seriously.). The range of sentiments covered in this album makes it perhaps better than the first Miami Vice album, but more offbeat. The best strategy in any case is to listen to the two one after the other. Other collections exist, but none have the concentration of standout performances that one finds in Miami Vice and Miami Vice II.
