AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Ennio Morricone's best work was rarely released on singles, but rather as part of his epic, sweeping scores. While many of the 46 tracks on the double-disc compilation The Singles Collection, Vol. 2 were part of various film scores, these songs tend to be among his most obscure. Instead of getting a bunch of forgotten gems that recall the haunting, dusty melodies of The Good, The Bad & the Ugly, The Singles Collection, Vol. 2 favors kitschy, effects-laden Euro-pop and ersatz easy listening. There are moments that suggest Morricone's brilliance, but on the whole, this is a collection for dedicated collectors, not the curious.
