Good, But the first film's score is far better.

"I do find it puzzling that a official release for the 1st score has not appeared, but at least the second is available for people who want a taste of predator score music. (Though I have managed to purchase the entire predator 1 score in bootleg form, and just for the record, Its Great.)The best tracks are 1, 3, 6, 8 and 11. The other tracks tend to comtain a vast amount of "tension" music, which rarely makes for an interesting listen, unlike the first film score, of which I actually enjoy most if not all of the tension tracks.This Varese release is actually rather generous too, there is quite a bit of score on this cd (unlike many Varese releases), so i found that i didn't have to go for a bootleg to get my moneys worth.I recommend this score, its an enjoyable listen. But if you really like the predator music, then i suggest that you search on some auction sites for a bootleg of the superior first film score, And the advantage of bootlegs are that they usually contain the ENTIRE film score, rather than snippets like most official releases."
Should be longer.

"Not a very thorough soundtrack CD but it does contain the best and most exciting cues from the movie. "Tunnel Chase" is the best recital of the main Predator theme and "Dem Bones" is powerful and sweeping. The track "Rest in Pieces" is the only return of the sad, sombre theme from the original. The 2 Predator movies are of Silvestri's best work and this CD should be popular with you if you are a fan. Let us hope that Varese Sarabande release a more wholesome version in the future and possibly the score for the first movie, which is strangely unavailable. I've had this now for 7 years and I still love it. I never gets boring and is always moving. 4 very well deserved stars."
Predator 2 Soundtrack Rocks!!

"As with the first score, Alan Silvestri does a magnificent job creating real suspense with a Bernard Herrmann-like sound. Silvestri provides a mixture of instruments just like Herrmann did for many of his great film scores! While this score isn't as good as Silvestri's score for Predator, it does have the same powerful sound and intensity. I highly recommend this to any soundtrack buff!!"
