Fantastic! Better than the first! May 30 2011
By C.P. Frey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After seeing the movie I can surely say that this soundtrack is a must-have for all fans. This album sends listeners spiraling across a plethora of different emotions and mind imagery. From the calm and mystical sounds of Ancient China/ Story of Shen or Inner Peace to the very fast and exciting Musicians Village, Rickshaw Chase, and More Cannons! Above all else it was indeed the musical score of Kung Fu Panda 2 that left the biggest impression! Fans of the movie and the Asian style of music will love this soundtrack!

Zimmer and Powell Have Done It Again! July 22 2011
By Francis Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hans Zimmer and John Powell are two of (in my opinion)the best film composers out there, and the idea of them collaborating blows my mind. For those of you who are familiar with the first score, you will remember that the two did a masterful job of making the film sound distinctly Chinese in tone, and did so by subscribing to traditional Chinese musical techniques. For those of you who are returning for that sound you may be slightly disappointed, seeing as some of that sound was thrown out the window in the sequel. However, for those of us who are staunch film score fans because a composers ability to twist our emotions around, look no further. This score is one of the most epic and inspiring that I have ever heard. The track "Zen Ball Master" (the climax of the film)is the most bombastically excellent pieces of music I have heard in a long time, while the tracks "Rickshaw Chase" and "Musicians Village" embody humorous chases through the busy Chinese streets. Overall, while not exactly matching the tone of the original, this is a masterful score, worthy of anyone's collection.
Awesome soundtrack for the Dumpling Warrior Aug. 30 2014
By SLF - Published on Amazon.com

The soundtrack for Kung Fu Panda 2 is as great as the first one. It continues to capture the mystery of China and Po's hunger for justice. The scores play out the evilness of Lord Shen as well as Po's emotional struggle to find out who he really is. The soundtracks flow from the kindhearted, yet sometimes awkward moments between Po and Tigress to the action-packed scenes of the rickshaw chase and the cannonball battle. I would definitely recommend this soundtrack to Kung Fu Panda fans.

Zimmer & Powell Follow Up Their First Score With This Intense & Emotional Ride. One Of The Best Of The Year Sept. 19 2011
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In 2008 something great happened. Hans Zimmer teamed up with John Powell for the first time in 8 years and gave us an amazing score filled with amazing themes, full of colorful instrumentation and most of all it packed an incredible emotional punch. The first Kung Fu Panda was a huge hit and I'm sure this one was greenlit the day after opening weekend results came in. When I heard of this one being in the works of course I was excited for one major reason, and that was that it would allow for Hans and John to team up again. Powell definitely had the greater influence on the thematic material while Hans fleshed out some deeper emotional points and overall flow. What I loved about the first score was how "un-childish" it was. The score was intense, heartwarming and in the end commanded such great emotional depth. Sequel scores are always interesting because I like to see how composers try to use established themes over again in new ways.

This time around the first half of the score is where you will find the lighter stuff. Our characters are back and of course they are fun characters. So the music for the first half is fun and light. We get some comical homages to 70's Lalo Schifrin scores and our themes are all reintroduced. The score really gets going with the track "Po And Shen/Face To Face". From this point onward we are treated to some amazing arrangements that use our favorite themes. Things get a bit more serious too as the score shifts tone from the light family comedy to the action filled kung fu epic. The music becomes a grand sweeping roller coaster that only Hans Zimmer and John Powell could bring. Their styles blend so well that the score gains a life of its own. I never once felt like I was hearing a rehash of the first score either. This journey is a continuation of the first one and a great continuation at that. Po's character is felt throughout the entire score as well. Po's theme echoes the strength and confidence that he as a character now has versus back in the first movie where he was unsure of who he was and what his purpose was. The track "Zen Ball Master" is pure gold as the score dives head first into the climax and resolution. The score is then beautifully wrapped up.

The score is simply stunning to say the least. Musically it's much more developed than the first one and there are so many more textures this time around. The final act is hair raising greatness and is an example of how a score should function as a storyteller and emotional backbone. Hans Zimmer and John Powell are two of the best working today. Hans helped usher John Powell into his own career and now that they can collaborate and make stuff like this is pure living poetry. This is definitely not a rushed attempt at a sequel score and will go down as one of the best of the year. With a CD running time of around 64 minutes and with lengthy tracks this is how a score should be presented as well. Kung Fu Panda 2 is a beautiful lush experience that incorporates the setting and characters flawlessly into the motions of the story it's telling, and that makes it an exceptional score.
The Great Music Continues April 13 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you enjoy orchestral motion picture soundtracks, I'd be willing to bet you've already discovered this one. Excellent music that suited the movie beautifully and stands well alone. The overall theme is strong in flutes and sometimes drums, reminding us of the Asian theme of the movie. The emotions of the music are clearly evident and passages relate themes such as defiance, wistfulness, bravery, cruelty and sadness. I highly recommend this soundtrack.
