Ok, so maybe my title is a bit much. However, I stand by my comments against those who deem the movie "Ruined cuz Hot Rod killed Optimus". This movie scared the hell out of me when I was 5, and changed my life from that point as I learned that it is what we call "taking that next step into greatness".
I won't break down the movie, even though some of you have it bar coded on your hearts as I do. The action kicked off with surprising death scenes, to more action with more deaths, to the big guys death, etc, etc. From the fast-paced synthesizer score by Vince DiCola to the rock songs via Stan Bush, Spectre General, Lion and NRG. This soundtrack has it all, baby.
I love the whole album, but my three standouts are The Touch, Hunger and Nothin's Gonna Stand In Our Way.
I think I've owned this album three times. I had a dubbed cassette, an official cassette, and someone got me the CD when I graduated in '98.
I proclaim my man-love for this movie and album. Am I alone on this?
