CRITIC REVIEWS

70
AllMusic

Catching Fire downplays the bluegrass and folk elements of The Hunger Games. While this is somewhat disappointing, it also makes sense: the series' second installment focuses on the decadent Capitol, the hardships facing Panem as a whole, and the tournament's diabolical arena rather than the Appalachian-like District 12.

Consequence of Sound
All in all, this soundtrack is a solid collection of B-level material from a varied selection of artists. Young listeners picking it up because they’re fans of the franchise or one of the bigger artists could easily use this as an entryway into a new musical discovery.

Rolling Stone

Phil Collins has retired, but his legacy endures in the new Hunger Games soundtrack, which channels his recipe for Eighties melodrama: synth strings, croaked vocals, crashing drums.

Slant Magazine
Soundtracks are perfectly representative of how contemporary pop music is perceived: as a curated singles collection. Yet because there's little-to-no physical component to the way music is sold today, there's no incentive to buy the album.
