5.0 out of 5 stars very good soundtrack May 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent soundtrack to a great movie. The best song is Accidently in Love by the Counting Crows. It is a cute playful song that fits the movie well. This CD has songs from artists I've never even heard of. I loved the song As Lovers Go by Dashboard Confessional. I really liked it, because I thought it sounded romantic. The duet Livin La Vida Loca by Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas is a very funny version of the popular song. Butterfly Boucher sounds really good covering the David Bowie classic Changes. Bowie actually sings on a cover of his own song which I thought was neat. I really like the song Holding Out for a Hero. Jennifer Saunders really sings this song well, because she has such a powerful voice. I'm On My Way is a pleasant song by Rich Price. I think he has a sexy voice.
Little Drop of Poison is a sexy song. I think it is a good song to slow dance to if you have a partner. Funkytown is a great disco classic and a good addition to this soundtrack. People Aint No Good is a sad song sung with a lot of emotion. I really liked it too. Shrek 2 is a fun soundtrack with a nice variety of songs. I loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, solid mix of tunes. June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
The best part about this CD is that it's exactly what it claims to be: a soundtrack. Not a "Best of" or "Selections from" collection, but a soundtrack that leaves nothing out. It captures the film's personality expertly.
And what a personality it is! This is an album that runs the gamut of emotions, from the cheerful groove of "Funkytown" and the driving energy of "Holding Out for a Hero" to the brooding "People Ain't No Good" and the outright desperation of "I Need Some Sleep." The individual songs are idiosyncratic, and taken as a whole package they're a step away from your everyday soundtrack. The much-praised single "Accidentally in Love" actually suffers compared to the rest of the album, becoming the bland pop love song amidst a sea of colorful tunes.
The decision to include the "in-character" music was definitely the right one -- from the moment I walked out of the theater I knew that my decision to buy the sountrack would hinge on the inclusion of Jennifer Saunders' version of "Holding Out For A Hero" -- but while the end of the film was a riot to watch, as a song "Livin' La Vida Loca" is showing its age. I don't feel that this is something you can blame the album for, though.
Overall, this is a great CD and a worthy addition to your collection. The only reason I knocked off one star is that there are one or two songs that have yet to grow on me. Normally I wouldn't be so harsh about it, but when the rest of the CD grabbed me so intently that gap is hard to bridge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shrek 2 is a great soundtrack May 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack has many good tracks on it. The best song is Accidently in Love by the Counting Crows. It is a lively playful song by one of my favorite bands. Butterfly Boucher's version of David Bowie's Changes is very upbeat and better than the original. Little Drop of Poison is the kind of song that just makes you want to grab a partner and dance. Funkytown is a great disco dance classic that is still fun to listen to. I'm on my Way by Rich Price is a very pleasant song that makes you tap your feet. He has a great voice that reminds me of Dave Matthews a little The Fairy Godmother Song by Jennifer Saunders is cute. I enjoyed her version of Holding Out For a Hero more though She has a sexy voice. Shrek 2 is simply the best soundtrack of the summer. I enjoyed it very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accidentally in Love is all that matters... June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to be straightforward. I haven't heard the soundtrack. I'm not going to buy it because if I did, I'd really only be buying one track - "Accidentally in Love" by the Counting Crows. I lost my sanity after hearing it about... oh... three times. That was about a week ago. Since then I'd say I've listened to this song about 200 times and maybe 10 or so other songs. It is all consuming. It doesn't matter, the rest of the album could be 50 minutes of Orcas screaming over the sound of nails on a chalkboard, I wouldn't care. This song is all there is. It has made the rest of the music in my life obsolete. Adam Duritz, I am at your mercy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun! May 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
We got this CD even before we saw the movie "Shrek 2." My kids - ages 3 and 6 - love this soundtrack and we listen to it constantly in the car. Their favorite tracks are "Livin La Vida Loca" and "Holding Out For A Hero." I personally enjoy "Accidentally In Love," "Funkytown" (which brings back memories of when I was a kid myself) and the other upbeat songs.
This is a must have for those who enjoyed the movie. And unlike the first film's soundtrack, it is appropriate for all age groups and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. Donkey and Puss In Boots rousing duet is a definite crowd pleaser. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captures the essence of the movie July 14 2004
By Evan M.
Format:Audio CD
I love this soundtrack! I felt it was very representative of the movie. It was a wonderfully eclectic compilation of songs that just make you feel good. The opening tune by the Counting Crows, which also opened the movie, is infectious rock. I also really enjoyed the remake of "Funkytown" and the songs from the movie.
Jennifer Saunders is remarkably talented. I love her version of "Holding Out for a Hero" and who can't smile at the Disney-parody "The Fairy Godmother Song"? The line about the bichon frise cracks me up every time!

I don't understand why some people like this soundtrack. There's really nothing special about the songs here. Very bland music, just like the film which merely recycles used ideas. Read more
