Anchorman 2 OST coverFeaturing Music by: Robin Thicke, Neil Diamond, Hot Chocolate, Argent etc.
Running Time: 51 mins
Label: Universal

With an introduction by Ron Burgandy himself who describes this album as making “Sergeant Pepper sound like a rejected jingle for Ritz crackers” this album is exactly what you would expect to accompany the sequel to one of the funniest films ever.

The 1st 2 tracks are suitably high energy; “Ride Like the Wind” by Christopher Cross and “Change” by John Waite, classic old school funky numbers. There follows a mixture of power ballads, disco with a bit of Neil Diamond “Shilo” and some chatter from Ron.

Mr Burgandy showers us with wisdom “life isn’t all jumping rope and grabbing ass” and sings to us in his own grandiose style on “Doby” as well as accompanying Robin Thicke on a reprise of “Ride like the Wind” at the end of the album.

“Lonesome Billy” by Peter Tevis and Ennio Morricone is a total find originally from a film called “Bullets Don’t Argue” which in itself sounds like a Ron Burgandy favourite. Although not in the same league as The Beatles this album is funny and funky and full of hot brie. Buy it.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Original Soundtrack can be purchased in the UK at Amazon on CD or MP3.
