Review: Rock of Ages CD courtesy of One2One Network

Thanks to One2One Network, I received a copy of the recently released Rock of Ages CD to review! Rock Of Ages is a Tony nominated smash hit musical comedy currently running on Broadway and starring American Idol's Constantine Maroulis and Amy Spanger. In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small-town girl met a big-city dreamer - and in L.A.'s most legendary rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the '80s. It's a hilarious feel-good love story told through the hit songs (including several medleys / live mash-ups) of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more. The album was mixed by Michael Barbiero (Appetite For Destruction, ...And Justice For All). 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.

Okay so what did we think? We would love to see the musical in person! The background music was right on with our memories of the 80's and many of the songs sounded very familiar, but as always, they were not the original recordings! From reading the reviews of others, if you see the musical in person this CD brings back the images from the show perfectly! We really liked the CD, but think we would love it if we saw the show in person!
