All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Given that Rhino/TCM's reissue of the original soundtrack to Alan Parker's 1980 film Fame arrived in spring of 2003, just as American Idol fever was reaching a boiling point, it was hard not to draw comparisons between the two, since both were forms of talent contests featuring talented unknowns desperate for stardom. What the Fame soundtrack reveals is that purposeful, artfully constructed fiction still has an edge over reality TV, since it does place a greater value on craft and therefore knows how to channel the passions of their featured stars better than AmIdol, which tends toward magnificent flameouts. That's also the nature of modern TV. Fame was a film directed by a serious auteur some would say overly serious, especially in light of the work that came later, who designed the film for posterity, and the same attitude carried over the music. Yes, the production techniques often do sound dated -- the over-reliance on state-of-the-art synthesizer ironically now sounds helplessly tied to the year of its creation -- but the music by Michael Gore is dynamic, varied, and alive, sung with real passion and vigor, and it still retains its essential spark 23 years after it was a pop culture phenomenon. Sure, it's glitzy and glossy, sounding like show tunes, but that's the tradition of this music, and it was done better than most Broadway tunes and movie soundtracks of the '80s. Years later, this still has the spark and vitality of kids trying to make their big break, no matter the kind of music they're singing, and that's one of the main reasons along with Gore's fine compositions Fame retains its power and entertainment value years later.
