When I first saw the film in 1981, I rushed out to by the LP soundtrack. Over the years it has lost none of its sheer listening enjoyment. Naturally the cd is an improvement in sound quality over the LP.

This soundtrack really captures the movie's hugely enjoyable OTT ebullience. All the tracks in here can be listened to on multiple repeat plays. Cheap Trick's 'Reach Out' and 'I Must be dreamin' are both good. 'Radar Rider' is the stronger of the two Riggs tracks on the album. Stevie Nick's 'Blue Lamp' grows on you each time you play it, as does the Nazareth track 'Crazy (A suitable Case For Treatment). Chill out to Don Fagen's 'True Companion' and Don Felder's 'All Of You'.

What is the best track on here - two contenders in my opinion:

- Blue Oyster Cult's superb 'Veteran Of the Psychic Wars' Was this track ever released as a single, if not why not?

- Don Felder's Heavy Metal, mean, moody, and magnificent track. Slow build up to a crescendo, and then it just winds back down again to a graceful fade out.

Frankly it's a tie, both songs are too good to put into second place.

Get this cd for that drive into work, guaranteed to make it a somewhat more enjoyable experience.

One of the best collections of rock ever put together for the sound track to a film..... and boy what a film.
This collection has something for all, from the silky voice of - Stevie Nicks (Blue Lamp) to the gravelly Dan McCaffty of Nazareth (Crazy).
If a tune written by one of the best fantasy writers since J.R.R Tolkien for the very best rock band in the known universe (Veteran Of The Psychic Wars - Blue Oyster Cult) is not enough for you .......... then buy the bloody film as well.

After seeing the great "Major Boobage" episode in South Park's twelfth season, with its cheesing and its very awesome music from the movie they parodied, Heavy Metal, I decided to purchase the soundtrack from which they used for their episode. Although it is not a heavy metal music, but more rock n' roll, it is still a great collection of songs that several groups have compiled into the movie. It can be listened either when you play as to pass time, or as you play the south park video game "Let's go Tower Defense". Not only that it has a great mix of various groups such as Don Fedler, who composed the classic "Hotel California" and plays the excellent "Takin' A ride". Apart from that, I adored "Reach Out" by Cheap Trick and "True Companion" by Donald Fagen, even though I loved the whole album.

A great buy for the movie fans, South Park, and also those who love listening to rock.

Bought especially for Don Felder track Riding on Heavy Metal, which I heard on South Park 'Cheesing episode! Brilliant Guitar, exceptionally talented. Liked 10 of the tracks on CD so money not wasted. Have eclectic musical taste; I have a musical background, playing classical piano, so I can really appreciate virtuosity of Don Felder.
