Obviously meant for 360 owners 1 Nov 2007
By Jeff McGuire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It seems to me that the previous posters are quite obviously not 360 owners, or just don't know about the reason why it's a companion CD and not a compilation CD.

In addition to the songs included with the CD, one also get's three additional songs to be downloaded via Xbox Live. For $10 you get what amounts to a song pack that usually runs 500 Xbox Live Points (value $6.25), with a copy of the songs from the game that you can listen to when you don't have your console readily available to you to play them.

Yes a lot of people will have these songs already in their music collections. So what it really boils down to for these people is, do you want to pay for a song pack and a couple of songs that you could otherwise download from iTunes (Curses be to Apple), or do the "illegal" route (down with the DMCA & RIAA) and BT them?

Either the way the value is not meant for Wii and PS3 owners to determine, but for 360 owners!

An Unworthy Companion 6 Nov 2007
By Brian Seiler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You know, part of me wants to recommend this CD as others have done before me, but I really just can't bring myself to do it. My issue isn't with the quality of the disc or the music therein, but honestly - how many people are REALLY going to buy this for the music that's on the CD? For that $13, you can download a lot of these tracks from iTunes or eMusic or even right here at Amazon. No - the real draw for this item is the three song download that comes with it. I must say, you've got to jump through a few hoops to get your songs (put your code in at the website then register then check email then get that then go put in your code and get your code that you then put into your Live account), and while they're not terrible, it's hard to say they're worth the price tag of this entire record. Unfortunately, as I write this review, it's the only way to get those songs in the game at all.

This leaves me sort of at loggerheads with myself. I can't really fault a Guitar Hero completist for buying this CD just for the song pack, but I can't say that it's any kind of a good value with a straight face. I mean, the Guitar Hero 2 song packs were ridiculous, and they cost half this much. If you're just a casual fan, I wouldn't worry much about having this. If you're a dedicated collector and you want all the tracks, I have to say that I don't see you listening to the CD itself a lot, but you'll get what you came for. What this feels like more than anything is an attempt to repurpose a number of the licensed tracks that Activision got their hands on in the production of the game and an experiment in marketing. While I'm curious to see how it works, I have to say that I'm not really rooting for it.

Where are the other 68 tracks? 26 Oct 2007
By IowaMusicMaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero 2 and Guitar Hero: Rocks the '80s came out it was only a matter of days before it was easy to download all the tracks for them, the only hitch being it was illegal, with no easy legal option available. These were therefore massively downloaded, so it makes sense to release an official soundtrack this time around right? This is the result, a handful of tracks that will be included in the game, most of which are probably already in your music collection.

I was thrilled to get to hear the rethought version of "Devil Went Down to Georgia" and am glad to have it in my collection, but thought it could have been better as the vocals were at best mediocre. The GH3 theme was fun, but too short lived for me, and where were the original compositions by Slash and Tom Morello? Will they release another CD with those, or will piracy be the only option?

Quite frankly, I feel that Activision has taken the wrong step by releasing only a partial soundtrack and should have released an additional, more expensive soundtrack with all the tracks from the game, including the bonus and original tracks that will be nigh impossible to get without turning to P2P file servers such as KaZaA or BitTorrent.

For what it is though, this is a fairly mediocre album that will sell well because of the Guitar Hero name on it.

Could use more songs, but a good buy for Xbox 360 Guitar Hero 3 owners 2 Nov 2007
By Paul Acevedo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I wish this album had more songs. The tracks included are mostly great, but there's so much more they could have done with the album. Steve Ouimette's metal version of The Devil Went Down to Georgia is pretty good - the guitar is excellent even if the singer sounds like a nobody. It's a little too long, though.

It does come with a coupon for 3 free downloadable songs for Xbox 360 Guitar Hero 3 though. You have to visit a website, register, follow a confirmation email, then enter the code that comes with the album. Then the site will provide a code to enter in the Xbox 360 dashboard. of the 3 DLC songs, the AFI song Carcinogen Crush is terrible. I normally like them, but this is their most feminine, weak song yet. The Marilyn Manson remix sounds great but opinions are mixed about how it plays. Too fast but still fun, in my opinion. Flyleaf's song is good too.

If you're jonesing for more Guitar Hero 3 songs and want to listen to some of them outside of the game, this is a good purchase overall.
Worth the buy 6 Sep 2008
By C-Dawg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is mostly intended for those with the xBox 360 version of the game because you can use it to download 3 songs and play them in game. But other than that, it's a decent album (though it could use more tracks).

Guitar Hero 3 Intro- Pretty cool little intro. After all, Slash is an amazing guitarist. Yet there isn't anything special about this song. 8/10

Cherub Rock- I already had this song when I got the album, but I'm not saying it's a bad song. Smashing Pumpkins is a great band and this song is one of there best. 9/10

3's & 7's- I already had this song when I got this album, but again; not saying it's a bad song. In fact it might be one of the best! Queens of the Stone Age did an awesome job composing this. 9/10

Miss Murder- Didn't have this song when I got the album. I never really liked it enough to get it off iTunes. But now that I have this album, it's pretty good. 8/10

Slither- Slash's current band. not much of a fan of Velvet Revolver, but yet still a good song. 8/10

Kool Thing- This song is diffrent from the rest. Sonic Youth is a diffrent band. But it's still okay. 7/10

Cult of Personality (Guitar Hero Version)- Probably the main reason I got this. Living Colour re-recorded it with a solo that was 10 times harder than the orginal. probably my second favorite on the CD. 10/10

Putting Holes In Happiness (Nick Zinner Remix)- This is my favorite song on the CD. I had no idea what this song sounded like until I bought the CD. Nick Zinner remixs the song with a faster beat and awesome guitars. Kinda sounds like something by Nine Inch Nails. 10/10

Tina- Good song by Flyleaf. Though there's nothing much to say about it. Just your average hard rock song. 7/10

Prayer Of The Refugee- Not a fan of Rise Against, but still this is a good song. Goes back and forth from soft to hard rock. 8/10

Devil Went Down to Georgia (Guitar Hero Original)- Everyone has probably heard the classic country version of this song. Well Steve Ouimette preformed a heavy metal version with crazy dual guitar solos. I like this song, but the original is far more better! 9/10

So overall, this is a good album. They could have made it better by putting these songs on:
-Tom Morello Guitar Battle
-Slash Guitar Battle
-Anarchy in the U.K.(Re-recording)
-Number of the Beast
-Through The Fire and Flames

If you already have most of these songs, I wouldn't recomend getting it. But if have a 360 and a copy of the game. Get it for the 3 downloadable songs.
