Rock of Ages Review

This CD is one that I was lucky enough to be able to review. I grew up an 80s child and the music was just up my alley. When I first heard it I kept turning it off thinking how can I be nice about a CD I hate? I kept at it and WHAM! It hit me. This CD is amazingly wonderful and nostalgic. I had to get out of my 80s rocker mind and get into my Broadway hit mode! I am in love with this CD. I am *rocking out in my chair to the music and songs and singers. It is a great way to introduce our kids to our music! Now I have to let Santa know that I want to see this Broadway hit!
Oh wait I know you want to know what songs are all on it! Sorry I am having to much fun singing to the CD! Oh yea my kids think I have gone nuts!
Cool info: 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.
