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!
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.
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!
