Rock of Ages [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A silver screen adaptation of a Broadway show that turned MTV metal into a musical, the original soundtrack to Rock of Ages can't help but feel like a faded photocopy, but somebody has taken great care to dress those smeared, blurry images in glitter and highlights, the sparkle deriving from a star-studded cast fronted by Tom Cruise. That Tom Cruise has never, ever seemed to connect with rock & roll, particularly of the gutbucket L.A. sleaze variety celebrated here, matters not because Rock of Ages is not for rock & rollers, it's for any number of people who like to dress up and play pretend.

On film or on stage it might be easy to get wrapped up in the spectacle, but on record, it's mere nostalgia.

    The obnoxious editorial review paints a picture that is exactly

    The obnoxious editorial review paints a picture that is exactly opposite of the joyful humor and music in this film. The self-important reviewer reminds me of people i knew in the 60s who advertised their hipness by professing love for Bob Dylan and contempt for Joan Baez. As for Tom Cruise, he displays his acting brilliance here.
