AllMusic Review by

More Music from The Rum Diary, the second collection of material from the 2011 film adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's 1998 book, relies less on composer Christopher Young's jazzy, Caribbean-inspired score and more on selections from period players like Mantovani & His Orchestra, Ismael Rivera, Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, and Hound Dog Taylor & the Houserockers. The last six tracks on the collection are from Young, with Patti Smith providing vocals on one of two versions of "The Mermaid Song."
