Composer Henry Jackman is best known for his movie scores for The Dark Knight and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man s Chest. For the Puss in Boots score, Jackman utilizes folk instruments from traditional Latin music. Inspired by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla, Jackman blends guitars and Latin percussion with an orchestral sound influenced by Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. The album includes two tracks from Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. A fixture on the world music circuit, they are known for their nimble-fingered guitar work and diverse background.

The music is full of great character riffs and has tons of character of its own. It plays homage to Ennio Morricone now and then. While I was expecting Harry Gregson-Williams to be onboard I think it stays with the idea of keeping this story completely removed from the world of Shrek. Jackman's tunes are fun and quirky and have tons of energy. The now incredibly popular Rodrigo y Gabriela lend their guitar talents to the score and two songs of theirs are used in the film as well. I must mention that the songs are not original and are from their first studio album. They do add a good deal of flair to the musical soundscape though just as they did for Knight & Day and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. There is also lots of score included on this release. The running time of the CD is 65-minutes, and when you consider the film is a brisk 90-minutes that is a lot of score we have. The whole experience is just great. Henry Jackman is really growing into his own and with X-Men: First Class under his belt we know he can tackle big studio tentpoles.
Puss In Boots was a nice treat. It's not as strong as most of the animation films out there, but we haven't seen Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek have onscreen chemistry like this since Desperado. Jackman's score is stunning and filled with energetic flair. Rodrigo y Gabriela add a touch of culture to the whole experience and make this an incredibly wonderful score.
The Soundtrack Of Puss In Boots includes 24 tracks, composed by Henry Pryce Jackman, featuring Rodrigo Y Gabriela. Excluding the song at the end of the movie at the beginning of the end credits, which is entitled "Americano" by Lady Gaga.
"I was always there", was striking when Humpty reveals his plans. The most rousing though was "Chasing Tail" and "Diablo Rojo" when Puss and Kitty meet and get into a dance fight, and then later "Hanuman" when they finally got the Golden Goose and were celebrating their victory. Yes, Puss was a bad kitty,but not that bad, and the score helped to make a wonderful funny movie.
