When I first heard the Tom Cruise version of Pour Some Sugar On Me I was skeptical.....REAL skeptical of this album...Hell, of this movie. I'm going to go see it, of course (more on that later in the week/weekend) but I've been listening to some samples of the soundtrack today via Amazon. I'm getting there with it folks. I'm getting there. Even Cruise's voice is beginning to grow on me. They coulda had him do his thing and digitize it and make it sound good, but they took all the faults of his voice (and there are many, to be sure) and didn't mess with it. They also let his emotion come through a little. It REALLY DOES seem like a guy singing to his steering wheel (who, of course can't sing) riding down the road to these tunes. I think most of us here without four star vocal pipes can relate.
So...here's the link to the samples on Amazon. Buy (I think I'll go get the actual CD this weekend) if you want to but be sure to come by here and tell us what you think.
I started to watch the movie the other night, got into 15 minutes of it and hated it. They hyped this movie way to much, very disappointed
went to the Automovies last night and Rock Of Ages was one of them 4 stars cause its music and i felt like i was at a concert in a way and the singing was shockin in a fun way lol ok i am a nerd lol and luv music and i sing too and not goin to put anyone down for singing so NOT BAD and Keep On A Rockin :)
A lot of ppl were hyped to see this movie, me for one, thinking it was going to be this great movie, For hyping it up as much as they did, to me is was a flop. The movie was only in the theaters here for a week. As for the sound track, it is what it is, I just have high expectations when it comes to someone covering some of these great bands. Just my opinion is all
