Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is nowhere near as good as the first film. The soundtrack, on the other hand, stands up quite well against the first film's soundtrack. The only real drawback on this deluxe edition is that the last two songs, "Flash Light" and "Guardians Inferno" begin side 3, before the score, rather than rounding out nicely at the end of side 2. I don't fault the album for this logistical issue, though. It's only a slight inconvenience. The songs that appear, though, are all stellar. I'm not crazy about "Lake Shore Drive," but I can tolerate it. Tyler Bates's score, on the other hand, is typical modern blockbuster fare.
