Rock of Ages Review and *GIVEAWAY*

I love musicals, and I say it all the time. It is the perfect combination of music and movies. You get the tunes, and the story line. I have heard some wonderful soundtracks, and some not so great ones.

Rock of Ages is a good one.

Rock of Ages is a five-time Tony Award Nominated Broadway show, and it is jam packed with songs originally recorded by Twisted Sister, Poison and Whitesnake.

Staring American Idol Finalist Constantine Maroulis, Rock of Ages is set in 1987 at the Famous Sunset Strip rock club. Here he meets a small town girl looking to make it big in the music industry. Through a series of events they come together, apart and then together again, to the tune of Journey, Bon Jovi and Styx.

I was apprehensive about this album at first. Who doesn’t love “We Built This City”, “Here I Go Again” or “Wanted Dead or Alive”, but how would they pull the songs into a musical. But this soundtrack sounds like a rock album, not a musical soundtrack, which is pretty cool if you ask me.

Yes, the soundtrack does have a bit of a cheese factor, but what soundtrack doesn’t. The great music and great singing make up for, 10 times over. This soundtrack has been in my cd player since the day it came, my kids are hooked!

Head on over here to watch the album being made, I have watched this at least three times already, and it’s interesting to see the cast members and get their take on the soundtrack.

You can get this album by heading here to order it, OR by entering below for the chance to WIN a Rock of Ages soundtrack.

Leave me a comment about which song off the soundtrack is your favorite, and you will be entered. I will draw a random number on Wednesday August 19th at noon.

Thanks to One2One Network for the great chance to review this soundtrack, and bring me back to growing up in the 80’s!

Okay, I'm not a big ROCK fan, but I just went to look at the list, and there are a ton of songs from the 80s that i like. My favorite would probably be #9 - I want to know what love is, but it was hard to choose! My hubby would love this - cool giveaway!
