5.0 out of 5 stars The Saturday Night Fever for the 80's January 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have owned this soundtrack in first cassette, then vinyl, now on c.d. format. What I would have hoped for in the remastered version was the classic extended versions of some of these tracks radio stations use to play when Flashdance was hot ! Tracks like What A Feeling, Maniac, and a couple of others had some remarkable extended counterparts which are now completely difficult to find.Flashdance did not conform to the "breakdancing" period like other movies or soundtracks did. It was pop-rock at it's best before the Top Gun soundtrack.The only artist to still carry some weight after all these years is Donna Summer.Everyone else is just a faint memory. Where's Kim Carnes ? Michael Sembello? Laura Brannigan? and let's not forget the blue-eyed soulful voice of Joe "Bean" Esposito who was a soothing cross between Michael McDonald and a lightweight version of Barry White on Lady, Lady, Lady.

There is very little difference in the remastered version with regards to sonic quality. The sound level is a little bit higher with a little more bass and a little more treble. Otherwise, nothing that could be considered a revelation ...

Update: April 1, 2011.

At the time I wrote above review on the remastered version of the "Flashdance" soundtrack,I was using an older home stereo system that did not do the remaster justice. Years later,with another stereo system, I am able to hear subtleties and nuances as well as an overall smoother presentation of tonality and clarity of the remastered version(doing an A-B comparison between my original early 80's pressing and the remaster); It was not just a slight boosting of bass,mids,and treble frequencies which had led me to hear or believe that not much had been sonically changed or improved over the first pressing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent from beginning to end!!!! September 6, 2004
By Raul
Format:Audio CD
I must agree with all the reviewers who say this is one of the best soundtracks of the 80's. You can actually play this CD from beginning to end and not need to hit the "skip" button because every track of this soundtrack could've been released as a single and would've charted.

The remastered work is great, it sounds much better than the original issue, however, extra tracks that were used in the movie could've been included like Gloria (Laura Branigan) and I Love Rock 'N Roll (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), and also 12" versions of the already included tracks. They could've also included liner notes, and perhaps the lyrics to the songs. They did a great job with the "Footloose" soundtrack, which to me is as good as "Flashdance".

In comparison to the original issue, the only difference I can hear is in the song "Manhunt", they did something to the vocal section and added some more guitar and synthesizer sounds that make it even better. Great job.

I want to dedicate this review to Laura Branigan (may she rest in peace) who played a big part on this soundtrack.

Anyone who buys this CD will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Popular Than The Movie--I Can See Why! December 29, 2004
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
I love the movie "Flashdance", and the only thing better than the movie is the soundtrack. The title song "Flashdance...What A Feeling" is an absolute classic, and soared up to #1 on the Billboard charts for 5 or 6 straight weeks! One of the best soundtracks of the 80s!

"Flashdance...What A Feeling" by Irene Cara--The best song on the entire album. It is about the passion of dance, and is also about how it feels when she is dancing. One of the greatest songs in the world, the album is worth buying just for this song. 5/5

"He's A Dream" by Shandi--A good song. It is the song that plays the first time we see Alex dance in Mawby's Bar, along with the famous water splashing routine. Obviously, it is about a girl seeing a guy and falling in love with him. It is fun to dance to and catchy as well. 4.5/5

"Love Theme From 'Flashdance'" by Helen St. John--AWESOME! There are no words to it, it is just some of the most beautiful music ever written. It plays a couple of times in the film, particularly when Alex and Nick are starting to fall for each other. The music is very beautiful and relaxing. A highlight of the album by far. 5/5

"Manhunt" by Karen Kamon--Very rock n' roll. It is about a girl who is fed up with being objectified by men, so she turns the tables. It is a cool song to rock out to, and was the background music of Cynthia Rhodes's only dance in the movie. 4/5

"Lady, Lady, Lady" by Joe Ben Esposito--This is such a good song! It plays on Nick and Alex's first date in the film, and Joe's voice is very nice. This is a good song to listen to if you want to relax. 5/5

"Imagination" by Laura Branigan--A song I used to love, but now it is just OK. It is basically about using your imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing soundtrack @}->--- May 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is definately one of the best - if not the best - soundtracks in the history of movie soundtracks. You cannot help but love it. It's so amazing. Yes it has that 80's feel, but to me it is timeless. I was 10 when this came out and I love it now even to this day. Manic, What A Feeling, Lady Lady Lady and Imagination are brilliant songs. Gloria was also in the movie but not on the cd. Well at least we got one fantastic song from the late great Laura Brannigan on here (Imagination).

I have friends younger than myself who haven't seen the movie yet (they think it's so old) but they love this music. I think it has such a wide appeal that you'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't like it. If you don't already own this, go out now and get it. You'll love it.
