I obtained it today, as well, and just finished my sixth listen of the score. smile It's currently duking it out with The Lone Ranger for my favorite score of the year.

Received my signed copy today. Can't wait to give it a listen. I saw the movie last night and it was great as was the score.

Got my copy of this on Friday, but unfortunately, it wasn't signed. Are they all out of signed copies? I never saw anything on this post that said if they were.

Loving this score so far though....

Maybe they forgot to put a signed booklet with your order. Contact them. I'm sure they will work something out. According to the site signed copies are still available.

If they're out and it's important to you I'll gladly send you the signed booklet that came with mine.

Love the hell out of this score. How does Margeson not get more work? Can this duo please score Winter Soldier together!?

Clearly an oversite. Shoot us an email at info@lalaland-ent.com and we shall send one out to you later this week when we get back from vacation. Very sorry about the mishap.

Got my autographed copy today! That has to be some kind of record... Less than a week from US to Sweden (4 working days)! Though I thought the film was weaker than the original (but still ok in my book), the score is great! Giving it a spin right now and loving it! Thanks La-La Land big grin

Saw the film last night and thought the score was fantastic. Can't wait for the album.

I saw the film last night too!
I was really looking forward to it, having LOVED the first film and it's score.
Sadly, I thought both were a crashing disappointment in comparison to number 1.
I didn't hate it, but I did expect a lot better.
What seemed fresh and fun in the first one came across lame and limp here.
Even the score didn't jazz me the way the first one did.
I was also surprised to see no credit (from what I could detect) for the Murphy, DeVries and Eshkeri stuff from 1. That 4 note guitar riff that Murphy has used in 80% of his scores plays everytime Big Daddy is referenced, but I didn't see any credit for him. Strange.
The main theme is great but I didn't hear a rendition here that bettered anything from 1.
Oh well, at least Hit Girl kicked ass, the film would have been dire without her.

Kevin, that is really weird because your view (save for the comments about Hit Girl) are almost the total opposite of my own views.

Like you I loved the first movie and went into the sequel expecting nothing, given that it has almost universally been panned in reviews. But I actually really enjoyed it and thought it was a worthy follow up to the first movie and actually one of the more enjoyable movies of the year for me.

It was though, Hit Girl's movie and Chloe Moretz is just such a great little actress. Seriously think she is destined for great things in the future.

Just saw the film, and while I wasn't as impressed as I was with the first one, I was still very entertained.

The score really impressed me, so I ordered a copy! Hope I'm not too late for an autographed copy.

I interviewed Matthew Margeson a few days ago for KA2:

Saw this last week and, while the score didn't do much for me, I thought the film deserved better reviews than it received. It seemed to play for less shock value than the first (the shock baton moment being an exception) and expanded on the characters, particularly Kick Ass and Hit Girl, in a way sequels today often don't.

I frankly think it's better than the first one.

I am in 100% agreement with MV- this is THE best score of the Summer. So much fun and catchy. Heavy rotation for me! Love it!

I really enjoyed the film, about as much as the first one but the music did not do much for me at all. It fit the film well but didn't stand out or stick in my mind.

I'm listening right now and all I can say is WOW. It may be better than the score for the first one. Every track pulls me right back into the movie. Love it.

WONDERFUL score! A theme you actually remember. Not sure why folks are not enjoying this as I think it's a fun listen. Hope folks pick this up. ALSO, if you want to get Henry Jackman's signature on it, there is ONE place you can do that, Fans of Film Music 4, www.fansoffilmmusic.com.

See my fellow score nuts there smile
