Product Description


Tellingly, director Richard Linklatter's Dazed and Confused was released 20 years after American Grafitti and offers a similar story of troubled young personalities lurking beneath an oversaturated pop culture veneer. Like Lucas before him, Linklatter clearly relishes that gloss and wields it like an ironic chainsaw. His soundtrack is a raucous, authentic collection of mid-1970's radio fare, be it sharp-edged pop (Sweet, the vastly underrated Rick Derringer), nascent metal (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple) and out-and-out hard cheese (Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas). Dazed and Confused is the real sound of 70's teenage America. --Jerry McCulley

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - but some glaring omissions 25 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
While I've enjoyed this album for quite a while now, I still can't quite forgive whoever decided which tracks were taken from the film.
To leave out the opening track of the film (Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith) seems ridiculous when some of the later songs like Highway Star are barely in the film at all. Another song seemingly left by the wayside is Hurricane by Bob Dylan, as well as being a great track it's also a highly memorable moment in the movie. Obviously choices have to be made when trying to capture the essence of a film in a soundtrack, but for me the omissions lowered the overall quality of the album.
Good - but could have been a lot better!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dazed and Confused, - A Classic soundtrack! 30 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
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!)

5.0 out of 5 stars very COOOOOOOL ...man! 26 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This sountrack will totally make you feel like you are one of the happy young teens of the 70s! There is a wide range of music -some mellow ballads, some funky hard rock- but all mainly from the 70s era. If you like the film 'DAZED AND CONFUSED'then I definateley recomend this CD as it features almost every one of the memorable tracks used in the film. I would recomend it especially for chilling out with friends in the sun as it is essentially a summer soundtrack. It features those popular tracks that everyone knows, such as ALICE COOPERS -'SCHOOLS OUT(for summer)' and WAR -'LOW RIDER'(the tune now used in 'marmite' adverts!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Tunes! 23 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
I never really liked rock music from the 70s and 80s, but after watching Dazed and Confused I immediately bought the album because it is nothing short of being outstanding. No matter what genre of music your into, this soundtrack will make your head bounce! Its perfect for car journeys and you will not get tired of it. The tunes by Black Sabbath, War, Foghat, Kiss, and ZZ Top are probably the best tracks. A must for any fan of music and rock!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful collection for the car! 22 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brilliant collection of music from a great film. Blasting up the motorway with the CD-player in the car music system burning out amplifiers and speaker cones as I struggeled to get this collection of rock hits was awesome. The miles flew by; the music buried me in waves of deep bass note; and then came Nazareth's "Love Hurts" and I found myself back in the 70's again. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars "hey, i know you!" 19 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
i must admit this is from one of my favourite films, and the reason i like it is possibly because the songs remind me of the corresponding scene in the film. But you can't deny the timeless quality of songs like 'Paranoid' by Black Sabbath or 'Lowrider' by War. My only gripe is the omission of 'Hurricane' by Bob Dylan
