Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (Original Score)
Though the musical heart of the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel is its stellar mix of ’70s pop-rock (Awesome Mix, Vol. 2), the movie has a terrific orchestral score too. Written by Tyler Bates (who also scored the film’s first chapter), the cues here—like the movie itself—range from the thunderous and heroic (“Ego,” “Gods,” “vs. the Abilisk”) to the surprisingly tender (“Sisters,” “A Total Hasselhoff”).
