Probably has the best version of the title theme since Elfman's.

Written by Anthony Cornfield - Review of the regular release
While, like the movie, I have an issue with the tone throughout (far too light-hearted), there are some exciting action cues. "Knife To A Gun Fight" is about as Giacchino-y as you can get, "The Express Elevator" has a great version of the M:I theme towards the end, and "World's Worst Parking Valet" is a brass heavy 5 minute-er (though I remember it being much more exciting (and longer?) in the movie).
The two best cues however are the insanely fun "Railcar Rundown" which contains a playful version of the main theme, and Giacchino's version of the title theme in "Light The Fuse". It's an incredibly jazzy (and much slower than expected) version of the main theme that I did not see coming, and amidst the rather messy rest of the score it's the one piece I keep returning to.
