Biography

Alice in Chains(Formed in 1987, by guitarist Jerry Cantrell bassist Mike Starr, drummer Sean Kinney and Vocalist Layne Staley) is one of the most influential American rock bands in the early 90's. Drawing equally from the heavy riffing of metal and the gloomy strains of post-punk, the band developed a bleak sound that balanced grinding metal riffs with subtly textured acoustic numbers. ...

The Megadeth song Angry Again is a good enough reason to buy this CD.

1993's "Last Action Hero" was our current California governor's (Au-nold!) big-budget, box-office dud about an big-screen action star introduced to the "real world" when a young boy who idolizes him uses a magic ticket as an entry point into his latest film. The soundtrack was a tribute album of sorts to late-80's hair metal as hard rock was continuing its transition into the alternative era. Alice In Chains' dual appearance (the outstanding "What The Hell Have I" and the equally good "A Little Bitter"), Fishbone (the stripped-down riff rocker "Swim"), and even Cypress Hill's track ("Cock The Hammer") lended creedence to music's new rock craze ushered in by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and AIC themselves.

The remaining bands on here are all straight out of the late-80's, big-hair, hard rock/metal scene and a few shine on their best moments, like Megadeth ("Angry Again"), Queensryche (who blend their sound with Micheal Kamen's orchestra on "Real World", although an argument could be made they were actually a 90's act), Anthrax (their seven-minute hard rock epic "Poison My Eyes"), and Def Leppard (their wonderful acoustic-guitar ballad "Two Steps Behind"). All of these are great tracks that make this soundtrack worth keeping even if the movie (which was good for my liking; my big compliant was it's a bit too long) was a drag at best for most.

I recently did a list of my personal picks for the Top 20 Soundtracks Of The 90's and I gave this one an "Honorable Mention". Why? Tesla's overbearing, echoing title track and Aerosmith's live version of "Dream On" (which was from MTV's 10th Anniversary special), while good, ultimately blew its chance to rank among my Top 20.

Although 'Last Action Hero' was a box-office tanker (I didn't think it was half-bad myself, but that's neither here nor there), it did have a soundtrack that contained some of the most rockin' tunes this side of 'Private Parts'.
Sadly, due to the film's box-office misfortune, the soundtrack usually gets the short shrift as well. An unfortunate thing, because there's more than a few tracks on this CD by some notable names in alternative and metal that rival some of their own better-known licks. 'Angry Again' managed to replace 'Symphony of Destruction' as my fave Megadeth cut. AC/DC's 'Big Gun' sounds a lot like many of their other tunes, but is also memorable. Also good are Alice In Chains's 'What The Hell Have I', and Cypress Hill's 'Cock The Hammer' (it's one of the few Cypress Hill raps I've listened to where they don't mention the use of marijuana!). Tracks by Anthrax and Def Leppard are there to enjoy as well.
So take a chance... you just might be very surprised by how good a soundtrack from a 'bad' movie can be!

What is it about the late `80s and early `90s pairing crappy action movies with killer hard rock soundtracks? Iron Eagle, Navy Seals and perhaps the mother of them all Last Action Hero.

Featuring artists as varied as classic rock icons AC/DC and Aerosmith to thrash metal heroes Megadeth and Anthrax to hair metal bands Def Leppard and Tesla to alternative acts like Alice in Chains and Fishbone and even rappers Cypress Hill, this soundtrack is a brilliant snapshot of that brief moment when mainstream metal and alternative rock peacefully coexisted (see also: Airheads). It didn't last, obviously, but at least we have relics like this soundtrack.

Of course it helps that the music is (mostly) really good. OK, the Def Leppard track is way wimpy, but the Alice in Chains, Anthrax and Megadeth tracks destroy, Queensryche's "Real World" is pretty epic, and how great is that symphonic version of "Dream On?" If you love late `80s and early `90s hard rock and heavy metal, the Last Action Hero soundtrack is an essential purchase.

The Megadeth song Angry Again is a good enough reason to buy this CD. I'm not a huge Megadeth fan, but that song is awesome. I can listen to it all day. It is for me the best Last Action Hero song and makes me think of the movie. Other good songs are the Alice In Chains song What The Hell Have I , which has some excellent music, again I'm not a big fan of AIC either, actually haven't heard much of them, anyway the song is cool and reminisent to the movie. Big Gun by AC/DC is ofcourse quitye good too, but nothing can top Megadeth-Angry Again !

The Fishbone song is also pretty good too.

The song by Anthrax is actually listenable and an amazing achievment for them. Actually the whole cd has I think the best song ever made by these bands featured (even if they were made specifically for the movie). It's like I never liked these bands that much except Megadeth, but here on this complilation they seem like pretty good bands (even Anthrax). Aerosmith makes a clssic for the movie aswell. And Def Leppard are one of the legends from the 80's which I never listened to, it's a soft song but suits the movie. The Queensryche songs is not bad either. Never heard of Tesla but they sound like Faith No More in their early days, not bad. And the last track which is by Michael Kamen And The Rock And Roll Ensemble Featuring Buckethead is a good song and is something different aswell.

So overall, I'd say this cd is definetely worth having if you liked the Last Action Hero movie, yes the movie was a bit dodgy, but that's what I like about it.
