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.

Man! Did these songs take me back! I was just a kid when alot of these songs were playing on the radio, but I can remember my mom listening to this music. I was excited to listen to the CD, and since I've gotten it for review, I've driven my kids crazy more than once with it! I especially love Track #16, which is "I Hate Myself for Loving You"/"Heat of the Moment" - those two songs right there! All I can say is yup... that's good stuff!
This is a great remake of the original songs and I'm sure you'll catch me rocking out to this on occasion! If I ever catch the play coming to Baltimore, I might even try to check it out!
