"Pitch Perfect 2" is a film about singing, and thus the quality of the movie relies heavily on the quality of the music. Those that loved the original "Pitch Perfect" will be pleased that the music for the sequel is of the same high quality and the album is just as fun to listen to (and sing along with) as the first one.

For those unfamiliar with the films, essentially "Pitch Perfect" (as well as the sequel, based on the tracklist) follows the Barden Bellas, an a capella group, as they sing their way through competitions. Obviously, the stories allow for many instances of singing - whether in practice or in competition.

"Pitch Perfect" had the Bellas (and there competition, The Treblemakers) cover songs like "Party in the USA", "Don't Stop the Music", and "I Saw the Sign". This time around, the Bellas cover a variety of well-known songs, both old and new. My personal favorite is the Winter Wonderland/Here Comes Santa Claus mix with Anna Kendrick and Snoop Dog.

Folks who enjoyed the first film and it's soundtrack are probably going to like this one too. There's a new Riff Off as well as another instance of Cups. Most of the cast returns, and there are some new additions as well (Hailee Steinfeld is the most notable new cast member). The entire crew has great voices, and the quality of the vocals here is excellent.

There are 18 tracks totaling just under 45 minutes of music - not too bad for a movie that runs under two hours, but that still seems a bit sparse. Perhaps there is more that will be released on a second album down the line.

This will be one of the year's best-selling soundtracks, and deservedly so. It's a lot of fun to listen to - although if you're specifically trying to stay completely spoiler-free for the movie then you may want to steer clear of the soundtrack (and tracklist) until after you've seen it.

This past weekend I saw "Pitch Perfect 2" in the theater (more on that later). Having seen the movie leads of course inevitably to checking out the soundtrack.

"Pitch Perfect 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (18 tracks; 44 min.) collects the music that you hear in the movie, and pretty much in the order as it appears in the movie. We start off with an pretty hilarious a cappella take on the Universal movie studio fanfare (sung by no other than John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks--Banks of course also directed and co-produced PP2). Next comes the Kennedy Center performance (where Fat Amy suffers a 'costume malfunction' of epic proportions, hence the fitting "Wrecking Ball" excerpt). The songs come flying fast and furious. The girls' big rival (the German band Das Sound Machine) certainly give the Bellas a run for their money, I love "Uprising/Tsunami". THE highlight of the movie and this soundtrack is the "Ripoff" between the 5 bands (10 songs covered in less than 5 min.--with nonstop energy). Likewise with the Bellas' "Back to Basics" medley (5 songs in less than 2 min.). And I kinda like it that they managed to get "Cups" into PP2 (albeit it in a 'campfire version'). The Bellas' World Championship Finale gave me goose bumps as I was watching it on the big screen.

In all, the soundtrack for PP2 is equally as good, if not better, than the PP soundtrack, and certainly more complete (remember the mess that was the original soundtrack for the first movie? of course, that was corrected in later reissued 'deluxe' and 'ultimate' versions). (Not onto this soundtrack are the two or three regular (i.e. not a cappella) songs that primarily play over the end titles.

Let me start off this review by saying I have not yet seen the movie but I LOVE the soundtrack! I never buy soundtracks because I usually don't listen to them very often but Pitch Perfect is one of the movies for which I have made an exception. The music from this soundtrack is outstanding. The songs cover several genres including rap, country, blues, rock, and pop and they are all sung by various a capella groups. I enjoy almost all of the songs on this soundtrack but some of my favorites are the Winter Wonderland/Here Comes Santa Claus medley by Anna Kendrick and Snoop Dogg and the Riff Off by the different a capella groups. I'm from Wisconsin so of course I am very interested in the songs sung by the Packers! The soundtrack is approximately 44 minutes in length so it's fairly short but it's packed full of excellent, fun, and catchy music. After hearing this soundtrack, I am very eager to see the movie. I would highly recommend this soundtrack to anyone who enjoys fantastic a capella music!

It's ok. Having not seen the movie, it's a little difficult to envision the scenes. The Universal Pictures opener was briefly amusing. Some of the harmonics are good, but I didn't like the CD as much as expected.

I was introduced to the First Pitch Perfect movie last year. Like some people, I did not want to watch that movie because of the word "Musical." Boy was I wrong. After watching it the first time, I went and bought the soundtrack, which left me pretty disappointed because most of the soundtrack recordings were different than the ones in the movie. When i started reading about the second movie, the Producers said that they would not make the same mistake again.

As I write this review, I have seen Pitch Perfect 2, three times (long story on why so many, but worth it). I did not buy the soundtrack until after I saw the movie the third time, so I was pretty familiar with the recordings from the movie. With one exception, in my opinion, the recordings on the soundtrack are the same ones from the movie.

All in all, if you want to buy the soundtrack to get the same "feeling" as if you are watching the movie, this is a good one to get.
