Thought it was really good. Visuals were awesome, Yondu's arc was great, lots of great humor. Unfortunately there was some cringy moments, the music in the background trick they pulled in the first one came off as stale this time around, and it was more "potty mouthed" than the first. Also, best Stan Lee cameo ever.

Edit: I heard the first one was a big flop in China since the humor and references didn't translate well, would be interesting to see if it picks up there this time around.

Nice, I need to see it at some point, really liked the first one.

Really disappointed "Fox on the Run" wasn't played during the film, i feel like it would of went well with Yondu's and Rockets scene.

Overall its a good film though, but for different reasons than the first, while the first was in your face action every 10 minutes or so, this one had much better character building during the middle of the film.

Was literally thinking the same thing recently, was still a fanatstic soundtrack but I feel Awesome Mix Vol. 1 was more iconic plus I loved every single track on that one. Vol. 2 is slowly growing on me but there's one I'm finding very catchy:
