Buy it... if you reveled in Michael Giacchino's flamboyant parody of the caper and spy genres for The Incredibles and desire an even wilder, more technically mature exploration of the same sound.

Avoid it... if you tire easily of parody music that tries to be outrageously slick and groovy, this sequel score effective in context but mind-numbingly oversaturated on album.

Incredibles 2: (Michael Giacchino) Perhaps the greatest irony of Incredibles 2, the overdue sequel to the 2004 animated hit, is that writer and director Brad Bird sought for years to make the project a reality and, when that finally happened, the production of the 2018 film was rushed by Pixar to screens without sufficient time to complete an incredible-worthy narrative. While still entertaining, Incredibles 2 matches the James Bond franchise in its inability to really reveal a fresh new plot, seemingly content to explore gender-swapping roles for the heroes and villains instead. With women at the forefront of the battle in this story, Elastigirl becomes the central focus, her resurrection to public glory part of a larger plot to support and foil the return of superheroes to the spotlight. Meanwhile, Mr. Incredible is assigned babysitting duties for much of the film, supplying most of the concept's parental humor. Bird decided not to age the characters for Incredibles 2, ignoring the 14-year break between movies to begin where the previous film had left off, allowing him to retain the same family dynamic gleefully highlighted by Jack-Jack, the all-too-powerful infant of the clan. Audiences rewarded the Disney/Pixar collaboration with generous returns, sparking discussions about even more films in the franchise despite their inevitably derivative outcome. The predictable formula for Incredibles 2 presented composer Michael Giacchino with his own challenges in writing the music for the sequel. He and Bird agreed that they didn't want to rehash the first score to any great degree, Giacchino even claiming not to have significantly considered his material from that project when approaching the 2018 entry. The composer admits that The Incredibles was a far tougher assignment because of his relative inexperience with the caper/jazz genre at the time. For the sequel, he confessed a far greater level of comfort with that style of music and therefore aimed to experiment to a greater degree in that arena. Not surprisingly, the Incredibles 2 score is therefore a more flamboyant and shamelessly over-the-top version of its predecessor, the composer taking techniques inspired by the Bond scores by John Barry, Henry Mancini's Pink Panther, and Hoyt Curtin's "Jonny Quest" to new levels of flair and energy.
