The sequel to Disney 's 2006 Academy Award-nominated animated adventure Cars , the appropriately titled Cars 2 , finds the misfit group of four-wheeled buddies heading overseas for a little international adventure. The film’s soundtrack reflects these changes, swapping out previous maestro Randy Newman with the extremely capable Michael Giacchino , and front-loading the collection with five very different pop songs. Weezer kicks things off with a solid, if way too literal, rendition of the Cars ' “You Might Think,” followed by a Brad Paisley two-fer that includes a clever “you say tomato, I say tomahto”-style, Nashville-meets-Europe jam called “Collision of Worlds" with British singer/songwriter Robbie Williams , and “Nobody’s Fool,” midtempo exposition piece that’s custom-made for a heartfelt character montage. Also included is a light and airy piece from French superstar Bénabar and a club-ready dance-pop gem from Japanese power pop outfit Perfume called "Polyrhythm." ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
