The Jumping Flash 2 soundtrack is of a rare breed of game music that doesn't fit into any one discernable category, but still turns out great. This is one of only a few soundtracks I really enjoy that strays from the norm.
There aren't any orchestral pieces. There are a few rock tunes, but they do not dominate the CD in any way. Every tune has its own distinct feel. And most of them make you feel good. There is the opening "Rap La Muu Muu". Now as far as rap goes this is a joke, but the beat is nice and they throw in that bass guitar that always makes me wanna move. That same techno/dance feel is the closest thing to a constant here. It seems to somehow permeate every tune, even though the tunes are very different. There are a few rock tunes, a few funky tunes, "Chinatown" which has that usual Oriental sound, and a couple with a Hawaiian flavor.
I can't honestly say I like every tune, but I like enough of them to make me wanna to listen to this one regularly. My personal favorites would have to be "Distant Cosmos" (oh so funky), "Boss Genie Machine" (makes you wanna get up and move), and "Boss Dragon Machine". Give this one a try, you just might be surprised by it!
