I saw the film on opening night, came home, downloaded the soundtrack, been playing it in the car since, and now I want to see the film again! I WANNA ROCK!
I was a big metal fan in the eighties, but didn't think much of the big hair bands and power ballads at the time, but I've mellowed with age, as you do, and I really love this album. Tom cruise singing 'Wanted: Dead or Alive' is brilliant. If being a Hollywood superstar doesn't work out for him, he could always join a band. And Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand singing 'Can't Fight This Feeling' is comedy gold. See the movie first and you'll enjoy this soundtrack a lot more.
There's only one song on here that's utter pants (track 16 - you'll understand).
Being set in 1987, you'd think there'd be a vinyl edition. Here's hoping...
