Rock of Ages Review


One of the perks of working with the One2One Network is all the great music you get to sample. Some of the music I may have never listened to if it wasn't for the opportunity provided by this wonderful group.

The most recent opportunity was a sample of the Rock of Ages soundtrack. I was thrilled to listen to this CD because my god sister/cousin/bff is very involved in theater. My appreciation and awareness for this art has increased tremendously because of her.

Before you take a look at the tracks on the Rock of Ages soundtrack, take a look at the making of the soundtrack:



You may notice a few of the cast members. Most noticeable is Constantine Maroulis, a contestant in the American Idol competition. He plays Drew in the show.

His appearance in the show is not the only perk. Check-out this information on the show:

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 . 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.

Now I'm an 80s baby, but I hardly remember all the music that played during that decade. It wasn't until I began listening to the soundtrack in the car that I was able to remember a few of the songs. Here is a listing of the tracks. My favorites are I Want to Know What Love Is and Hit Me With Your Best Shot :

Tracklisting
Just Like Paradise / Nothin' But A Good Time
Sister Christian
We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
I Wanna Rock
We're Not Gonna Take It
Heaven/More Than Words / To Be With You
Waiting For A Girl Like You
Wanted Dead Or Alive
I Want To Know What Love Is
Cum On Feel The Noize / We're Not Gonna Take It (Reprise)
Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
Here I Go Again
The Final Countdown
Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock (Reprise)
High Enough
I Hate Myself For Loving You / Heat Of The Moment
Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Don't expect to listen to a CD filled with studio tracks. The Rock of Ages soundtrack plays like a musical without the visual effects. Listening in your car or at home, you'll feel like you are sitting center stage.
