The Victorious gang is back with a second soundtrack featuring music from widely popular Nickelodeon television series. Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Elizabeth Gillies, Leon Thomas III, Daniella Monet, Avan Jogia, and Matt Bennett star in the musical comedy about a group of kids at a talented high school in Los Angeles.
Victorious 2.0: More Music from the Hit TV Show features recent songs from the show. Unfortunately it is a short one with only seven tracks, but those are seven great tracks which will have any Victorious fan dancing.
I have listened to the entire Victorious 2.0 soundtrack and I am prepared to give you all my personal review. Below I will give a brief review of each of the seven tracks:
Victorious Cast – Victorious 2.0: More Music from the Hit TV Show review:
1. “Make It in America” – This track kicks off the album with Victoria Justice showing off her amazing voice and writing skills. A great song that anybody with a dream of becoming famous in America can relate too.
2. “Take a Hint” – Elizabeth Gillies joins Victoria for this track that has been a huge hit with the audience. “Take a Hint” is a song that would probably go on your break-up playlist or maybe more like the song you should play to your boyfriend/girlfriend to break up with them.
3. “Shut Up and Dance” – Moving right along, Victoria is back solo for this song which keeps up with the energetic pace that has been set by the previous two songs. A song to certainly dance along with.
4. “5 Fingaz to the Face” – When you first hear this song it’s clear it was inspired by Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”. It’s the rare track where the whole cast joins in. It’s a fun song that will likely get stuck in your head.
5. “Countdown” – This is my personal favorite off the album. Leon and Victoria’s voices complement each other perfectly for a song that will have you jamming out and singing along from the moment it starts.
6. “Don’t You Forget About Me” – Victoria Justice does a great job covering this classic from Simple Minds. The song was used in an episode that paid tribute to the movie that made it famous, “The Breakfast Club”.
7. “I Think You’re Swell” – This song from Matt Bennett wraps up the album in a fun, random sort of way. It doesn’t exactly match the rest of the album, but hey that’s what makes it great.
