4.0 out of 5 stars Sweeter The Second Time Around... Oct. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
Supposedly this soundtrack was almost forgotten and not as popular as the original Miami Vice soundtrack;Even I almost forgot about it's existence. That was until I played the vinyl version and later purchased the cd ! I was amazed at the varied styles and artists featured. This time around the music is more in tune with the pop sounds of the late 80's.The opening track performed by Steve Jones (Mercy) is brooding and moody ! This time around a love duet ballad is introduced into the mix performed by Patti LaBelle and Bill Champlin. There is a very rare track by the now defunct group Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry called Lover . The Damned peforms a pre-alternative mod rock instrumental number called In Dulce Decorum. Jackson Browne performs a somber tracked called Lives in the Balance. Jan Hammer returns with more of his hi-tech synth instrumentals as evident in Crockett's Theme. the only dance R&B pop track is performed by Gladys Knight and the Pips called Send It To Me...
The end result is that this soundtrack deserved more attention (and still does) than it received when initially released ! In fact, since the first soundtrack was overplayed on radio stations across the country when it was popular, Miami Vice 2 was overshadowed and ignored. However, it may be an 80's tv soundtrack project worth discovering again for it's catchy collection of tracks by some rare artists !...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sonny and Rico's Dance - Miami Vice April 18 2000
Format:Audio CD
We're now in the second/third season of Vice. The series is now more focused on Sonny Crockett, Ricardo Tubbs and perhaps Lieutenant Martin Castillo. Some details are interesting in the albun, "In Dulce Decorum" has no lead singing (it had on the show ). "Lover" and "Send it to Me" are actually not present in any episodes ("Lover" is although a perfect Miami Vice song, and Brian Ferry's subtleties and refinement fit perfectly to it). Here you will find "Crockett's Theme", a famous hit, in a proportion not common for a TV series. It could have more Jan Hammer music, but that's ok, otherwise it would be the entire CD. Jan Hammer original music for Miami Vice should be released separately (I could not imagine how much CDs a collection like that would take, but surely, it'd be a wise move. Check Jan Hammer's "Escape from Television", essentially his Miami Vice solo albun, and "Too Much to Loose", also containing some Vice music).
Altough the first is the first, and its selections were really great, perhaps this second volume, even not being such moving as the first one, describes better the Miami Vice style, its atmosphere. Miami Vice made music a character itself, not a background for story (far from that), not an ornament. Music was an intrinsic part of the drama. Through the pop beat, one could see the profound meanings of the scenes (In different but related ways, Kubrick's Clockwork Orange does that to classical music).
Hearing those songs for a Miami Vicer means getting close to the heart of Miami Vice logic... and translating it into true meaning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair Aug. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Following the massive success of the first Miami Vice soundtrack, this album feature some new songs that are fair but have nothing memorable about them. It also was not liked by the audience that much either b/c it only charted at 82 on the billboard 200, unlike the original which was number 1 for 11 weeks. If youre a die hard Miami Vice fan, I recommend it, but if youre not just skip over this and buy Miami Vice The Complete Collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bringing back great memories! Feb. 15 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Miami Vice is arguebly one of the best television shows ever! I got this CD last year, and have been playing it since! All the songs are great; but I wish there was more Jan Hammer! Sonny Crockett's Theme, New York Theme, and the orginal Miami Vice Theme are all breath taking! If you are a Miami Vice fan, this CD is a must!

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD six months ago because I am a Miami Vice fan. I didn't expect it to be good, but it is wonderful. "In Dulce Decorum" is incredible! This is a hard-to-find CD. You will love it! I enjoy it more with each playing!
