5.0 out of 5 stars Better than The Hunger Games?, 29 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Audio CD)
In the last soundtrack ( for The Hunger Games movie) we had Taylor Swift, The Civil Wars, Arcade Fire, Maroon 5, Birdy and a whole bunch of other artists, that were more unfamiliar to me, that produced a some really excellent songs. This time, for Catching Fire, the album again exceeds expectations and is, in my opinion, even more successful than the first because of the strength and diverse mix of artists.

While the main attractions here seem to be Coldplay, Sia, Imagine Dragons and Ellie Goulding, it's really the artists that you and I probably haven't heard much of before that make the CD worth buying. The Weeknd and their song "Devil May Cry" is the highlight of the album, for me, and has a running time of over five minutes, which is a bonus. "Place For Us" by Mikky Ekko also stands out and is something fresh and new that voices the themes of the movie and emotions of the characters perfectly. Unfortunately, some of the most unique and wonderful songs can only be heard if you buy the deluxe soundtrack - which is a shame, really. But it's worth the money.

The movie itself is much more spectacular than The Hunger Games, and the album definitely reflects this. And, if you happen to find you really enjoy this soundtrack and have seen the movie, it's worth taking a look at the Original Motion Picture Score by James Newton Howard, where you'll find some really amazing cinematic songs from the movie, such as "Katniss", "The Fog", and "Arena Crumbles".
