Score Guide – Shrek 2 (2004)

We proudly welcome you all to our 38th Score Guide and another whirlwind adventure! Will & Wend knock back a few pints in The Poison Apple as they guide you through the well-loved score to DreamWorks animation’s most successful film to date, the 2004 sequel, Shrek 2 by Harry Gregson-Williams.

In a track-by-track quest, your hosts pull back Harry’s gossamer curtains to discuss, analyse and gush over the themes–both old and new–musical character identifiers, more hidden roto toms, and all those shining bassoon moments that make them love this score more than wallowing in the mud.

Soundtrack release at the ready!
