The soundtrack for the hit movie “Rock Of The Ages” is full of history of the eighties music, redone by many of the movie’s stars including Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin, Diego Boneta, and Mary J. Blige. It’s wonderful to hear what the cast has done with the music, and this is an album with songs that many will recognize, and all will thoroughly enjoy. The 20 track CD is so incredible, I’m not sure where to begin. But, let’s go with track #2, “Sister Christian /Just like Paradise /Nothin’ But a good Time” which hits hard and sets the tone of the CD, rocking hard…very hard. “I Wanna Rock”, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” are stand outs tracks, and the album also contains some refreshingly cool and mellow sounds from the ’80s like “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, performed by Zeta-Jones in a way that is quire impressive.

Zeta-Jones has a phenomenal voice and believe me, she does this song justice in a way that I’m certain Pat Benatar, would approve of. “Paradise City”, Cruise, whom I’ve never heard sing before (not seriously anyway), does a superb job as well. “Harden My Heart”, “Shadows Of The Night” are also notable.

There’s a fantastic variety for all music fans, and whether listeners are rock enthusiasts or prefer other genres, “Rock Of Ages” is guaranteed to please. “Here I Go Again” is one of my personal favorites, but this soundtrack just delivers over and over again. There are no bad cuts to be found here.

“Rock Of Ages” is very professionally done with the best and most talented musicians and producers, and will bring back many great memories and rediscoveries. I highly recommend this CD, and can’t wait to see the movie now, which I missed at the theater. Job well done!
