A classic film, that relies a great deal on the music to provide a realistic and accurate 70's setting. From the opening track, the energetic and fun 'Rock and Roll/Hoochie Koo' by Rick Derringer, to the closing song on the album, the chaotic 'Paranoid' by Black Sabbath, the album goes through many changes in pace, and features many popular music styles of the era. There is classic stadium rock (Kiss, Alice Cooper),and faster more punk sounding songs (The Runaways), with everything else in-between.
The great thing about the Dazed and Confused soundtrack, is that you can vividly picture parts of the film, through hearing the music, a personal favourite of mine is 'Low Rider' by War, the song that features in the background of the film, when the kids are driving around and planning a party.
I would recommend this album to people of any age, and with any musical taste (it caters for all, and is a joy from start to finish!)
