Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Hans Zimmer and will.i.am are the main composers of this soundtrack, which updates the music of 2005's Madagascar with some African flair and light pop
ock appeal. "I Like to Move It" is reprised with will.i.am handling lead vocals, John Kander's "New York, New York" receives a humorous polka treatment, and original versions of Barry Manilow's "Copacabana At the Copa" and Boston's "More Than a Feeling" round out the quartet of tunes that listeners have heard before.

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Hans Zimmer and will.i.am are the main composers of this soundtrack, which updates the music of 2005's Madagascar with some African flair and light pop
ock appeal. "I Like to Move It" is reprised with will.i.am handling lead vocals, John Kander's "New York, New York" receives a humorous polka treatment, and original versions of Barry Manilow's "Copacabana At the Copa" and Boston's "More Than a Feeling" round out the quartet of tunes that listeners have heard before. The remainder of the album shifts between safari-themed instrumentals, kid-friendly club music, and the sweeping orchestrations that regularly accompany such animated films. "The Traveling Song" even sounds like a contemporary radio single, with will.i.am singing through an Autotune processor over light hip-hop rhythms. The Madagascar series relies heavily on music, often injecting songs directly into the movies' plot lines, and that emphasis helps fine-tune this soundtrack into a lighthearted, pleasant album.
