Rock of Ages Original Broadway Cast Recording Review

Friday, July 24, 2009

I am a (proud) child of the 80's. Big hair. High top tennis shoes. Killing the ozone layer with Aquanet. Parachute pants.

Every last bit of it. And I loved it!

Especially the music!

I remember "jamming out" (that's we called it then) to songs such as We Built This City, Wanted Dead or Alive, Every Rose Has Its Thorns, I Wanna Rock and so many, many more!

Now, all those awesome 80's tunes have been reunited as the foundation for the five-time Tony Award nominated Rock of Ages, a new bodacious Broadway musical starring American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis.

Set in 1987 in a legendary Sunset Strip rock club, a small town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest metal songs of the 80's. The musical is an arean-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar,Foreigner, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and more.

The Original Cast Recording CD features 22 songs from the Broadway show. In the spirit of the original musical, the Cast Recording defies Broadway conventions, with jams mixed and engineered by seasoned hard rock musicians and producers.

If your memory is filled with fond memories that feature boom boxes, neon shoe laces, cassette tapes, or loving St. Elmo's Fire, then you'll enjoy reminiscing the "good old days" with this oldies-but-goodies remixed CD.

Listen to clips from songs from the soundtrack that includes:

Nothin' But A Good Time

We Built This City/
Too Much Time On My Hands

I Wanna Rock

We're Not Gonna Take It

Heaven/More Than Words/

      Oh, I feel right at home in this post. i to rocked in the 80's. The smell of Aquanet in the morning made me giddy. 2 pairs of slouch socks in contrasting colors with my high top Reeboks and acid washed tight rolled jeans and long shirt with shoulder pads and the little thing you pull the bottom corner of your shirt through. Cna't remember what that is called. Anyway, i love this music and might check into getting that cd.
