Buy it... only on the song compilation album if you want to enjoy the true musical personality from this film, Mark Mothersbaugh's score a tediously anonymous and pointless exercise.

Avoid it... if, along with the frenetic personality of this concept's hybrid electronic/orchestral music, you appreciated the thematic consistency of the first score; all of that strength is lost in the sequel.

Mothersbaugh
Mothersbaugh
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part: (Mark Mothersbaugh/Various) The "be ye disabling of yon shield" asininity factor of 2014's surprise hit, The Lego Movie , was tempered by the fact that it was, at its heart, a tender and authentic family story. The imaginative, animated world of the Lego mini-figures and how they intersect with the real world that guides their destiny proved to be a fascinating idea, and while the numerous cinematic and video spin-offs of the Lego animations have often dwelled completely in their marketing-oriented domain, 2019's The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part returns as a direct sequel to the world-spanning original film. Although the first movie set its competition between the mini-figures of the lead, real life boy and his "Lord Business" father (whose Lego incarnation still faintly reminds of polished American politician Mitt Romney, for some reason), the second entry forces the boy's characters against his younger sister's Duplo block equivalents. (Indeed, Lego and Duplo are worthy adversaries for any parent.) Dual lines of action follow the lead mini-figure, Emmet, and his alter-ego, Rex, along one path of discovery while the leader of the Duplo blocks, Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi, is deviously matched up against Batman. The voice talent from the original film returns, and a significant number of cameos from the DC Extended Universe of films await your enjoyment as well. These Lego movies are wildly hyperactive by nature, and that demeanor carries over to their music. The first film's main song, "Everything is Awesome!!!," was nominated for an Oscar and a Grammy, and while the surrounding original score by Mark Mothersbaugh was generally insufferable, at least it made reference to the memorable melody of that song. Mothersbaugh's music also introduced several motifs for the mini-figures, including a serviceable anthem for Emmet, but the personality of the 1980's-inspired electronic-orchestral blend was too disjointed to really function on album. Ironically, the heart of the score was solidified by the conventional symphonic passages for the real-life sequences, and it's no surprise that this tend continues in the sequel.
