Ages Of Rocks CD Features Impressive Tracks!REVIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | August 15, 2009 at 9:35 pm
I always love projects from the One2One Network, they keep you feeling a little more hip by showing me the latest music which aI might have otherwise missed. This time it was to review the Rock Of Ages CD. Even though I am n0t in touch with what is hot (or not) this listing had several songs from an age when I did listen.
Come on, who has not loved “we built this city” or “I want to know what love is”? The soundtrack listing is amazing. And of course the favourite being “Final Countdown” which has always been the traditional New Year’s eve song in my home. New Line Records just hammered the in-store release of the Original Broadway Cast Recording of five-time Tony Award nominated “ROCK OF AGES.” For those of you not in the know, Rock of Ages is the new Broadway musical starring American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis <http://www.rockofagesmusical.com/constantine.php> . 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 arena-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.
Although the selection is quite impressive it takes some getting used with the songs not sounding different than the originals. If you can get past it then this would be a CD you can totally get into.
