Editorial Reviews

Dreamworks presents Madagascar 2 Escape Africa release in 2008. Music and songs features will.i.am and Hans Zimmer. After escaping Madagascar on a plane, the animals' plan to return to NYC is thwarted when they crash land in Africa. Initially, the animals are delighted to finally be among their own kind inthe wild, yet life in Africa turns out to be different from what they anticipated. The follow up to the successful animated movie hit Madagascar has all of the characters back.

Alright, so I almost didn't buy this album due to the (almost all) negative reviews posted here on Amazon. Thank God I did, because this is a wonderful CD. My goal in the next few paragraphs is to offset the bad reviews and give you a better understanding on whether or not to purchase this CD.

Let me first start off by giving you three reasons to add this to your cart. Number 1: If you or your kids liked the movie. Number 2: If you are a Hans Zimmer fan. Number 3: If you are a Will-I-Am fan.

My soul reasoning for purchasing this CD was that I collect Mr. Zimmer's soundtracks, (44 including Madagascar 2). For the reviewer who asked, "Hans Zimmer, where are you?" How about tracks, 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16 and 17? Are you kidding me? There is plenty of Hans Zimmer on this CD! Track 1 (Once Upon A Time In Africa) has a fantastic (almost four minute) orchestral piece; Track 2 (The Traveling Song) is a fun Hip Hoppish song with Will-I-Am vocals. Track 3 (Party! Party! Party!) has a great tribal beat with vocals similar to the vocals used in Lion King. Track 5 (Volcano) is an amazing Electronic/Dance piece with orchestral strings... All Hans Zimmer and all are a great listen!

This is of course just a tip of the ice burg here, as I haven't mentioned the other 13 tracks. Hopefully you get the idea here, this is a wonderful sequel to the pre-existing Madagascar 2 soundtrack. Remember, the soundtrack that only featured 4 Zimmer tracks? That was sad although "Zoosters Breakout" was worth the price of the entire CD.

In summary the Madagascar 2 soundtrack features 7 Hans Zimmer instrumental pieces that in my opinion are worth the purchase. You even get Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" and Boston's late 70's hit "More Than A Feeling". 2 classics and a solid Zimmer score with fun Will-I-Am vocals make this soundtrack a worthy album for Zimmer collectors and all Madagascar movie enthusiasts!

My three year old daughter cannot get enough of the songs from Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa. I was tired of putting in the DVD Madagascar - Escape 2 Africa (Widescreen) just so we could hear the songs, so I went searching for the soundtrack to the movie. After being unable to find it anywhere in my town, I ordered it from Amazon.

The songs on this CD make us giggle, as we dance to the music and try to recreate the hip hop hippo's dance moves. If you have a little Madasgascar fan in your house, this will make a great purchase. It gets them out from in front of the TV. You can't help but want to dance and sing along.

My personal favorite on the CD is "Big and Chunky," featuring Moto Moto and the adorable hippo, Gloria.

This has been the most requested CD in our car since we bought it. It has seventeen songs by various artists, most of them funny, some of them (like Copacabana) older than others. My kids like almost all the CD. You don't need to have seen the movie to enjoy all the songs.

I happen to think this soundtrack is a similar yet better version of the very awesome soundtrack to the original Madagascar. This album is great for tweeners because it gives up the sappy children's music for great beats and dance music with safer lyrics than top 40. I am very particular about the media to which I expose my 9 year old son. He has a challenging time right now because he is looking for good music with beats, etc, but he knows that a lot of mainstream music lyrics are simply inappropriate. The Escape 2 Africa soundtrack fits the bill.
I personally like the album as well, and I feel a lot of love from Ton Loc on the "Big & Chunky" track. Curvy girls unite!

Hans Zimmer has done some of his best work when the focus has been Africa, one way or another. In many ways his breakout work was his collaborative effort on "The Lion King" and he produced a fine score for "Tears of the Sun." His return to this geographic genre, his music for "Madagascar" and its recent sequel, "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," has been largely underappreciated however. Both soundtrack albums must be viewed from two perspectives. First and perhaps foremost, they are both a good deal of fun. Both films make broad use of updated renditions of popular songs and music (including tributes to Ennio Morricone) and this is well represented on both soundtracks. Second, they both make use of the inexhaustible talents of Hans Zimmer. The drawback to both soundtracks, however, is that they include a bare sampling of Zimmer's original scores. Zimmer uses a basic package of themes that appear in both films, but clearly he makes best use of them in "Escape 2 Africa." His main orchestral theme goes through a multitude of transformations in this film from playful to triumphant and really quite epic in the film's climax. It even becomes a vocal to great effect. Sadly, much of Zimmer's best music in "Escape 2 Africa" is not on the soundtrack album. Just a quick thought...a "score" album? Nevertheless, "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" is simply a gas. Well produced and nicely packaged by Interscope Records.

This was suppose to be music from the movie, but the only version of the theme song is the studio/radio version of the actual recording artist. We expected this to have the version that is actually played in the movie
