This may be the best movie soundtrack of all time. The music found on this disk perfectly captures the feel of the movie. Really what is there to review? Just take a look at all of these 4 and 5 star ratings. If you have seen the film you will want to soundtrack if for nothing else than for the haunting "theme" of "Cry Little Sister" which will become a mainstay on all future Halloween mix CD's. Lou Gramm's "Lost in the Shadows" is as good as anything "Foreigner" ever put out and Gramm's vocals are top notch...seriously just try to listen to "Lost in the Shadows" once...it can't be done, you will be hitting rewind as soon as it begins to fade just to listen to it once more. "Beauty has her Way" and "I Still Believe" are both catchy and immediately take you right back to the late 80's with a sound that was unique to the time, but still sounds fresh today. Really there isn't a weak song on the album. Highly recommended and perfect for a warm, dark summer night.

THE LOST BOYS SOUNDTRACK

This is really the first time I have reviewed a cd that is not rap/hip hop related, but I love the movie so much I felt that I should review the soundtrack and add a rock type of music review to my review list. So with out further a due

1.GOOD TIMES-this is a nice bouncy energetic song, with a great beat and nice vocals from INXS and JIMMY BARNES. For some reason when I hear this song I see a montage from the NFL or something, especially during the hook. You know clips of moments from the games of the week, and shots of drunken fans holding it down. Over all this a pretty good song.4/5

2.LOST IN THE SHADOWS [THE LOST BOYS]-I have to admit that I really like this song, it fits the film perfectly and the hook is great. The whole entire song is pretty eerie if you listen to what the lyrics are saying. LOU GRAMM did an excellent job on this track, and PAT MORAN and Lou him self did a great job on production. This is definitely a highlight of the soundtrack.5/5

3.DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN ON ME-all I can say about this track is that it is great. I have always been a sucker for slow songs, and this track falls into that category. Although it speeds up a bit when the beat drops it still has that cinematic feel to it, and then it slows down again after the hook. ROGER DALTREY did a great job on this track. This a great way to follow the previous track, classic after classic.4.8/5

4.LAYING DOWN THE LAW-INXS and Jimmy Barnes return with their second and final track of the soundtrack, and I prefer this one over the first. This one sounds smoother and more laid back. And like the first one this one was produced by MARK OPITZ and remixed by BOB CLEARMOUNTAIN.

The editorial review of the soundtrack on this page was a bit harsh. Sure, no new ground was broken music-wise here (the majority of the songs are remakes of 60's and 70's tunes) but, tell you what, it's WAY better than the canned, corporate crap that's foisted on the buying public nowadays.

What I like most about movie soundtracks from the 80's and early-90's is that undertalented and overexposed starlets weren't doubling as singers (whose "songs" - composed by other people - were just as "stellar" as the remakes they were "acting" in). Even as recently as the early-90's, people either acted or they would sing (once in a great while there would be someone who would be successful at both, but that was the exception rather than the rule).

I love "The Lost Boys" soundtrack because it *does* capture the mood of the movie quite nicely. I can't help but think of the motorcycle racing scene whenever I hear "Lost In the Shadows (The Lost Boys)." And despite what our resident soundtrack expert has to say, Roger Daltrey's take on Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me" was pretty good (I may be alone here but I think Daltrey was a lot better than the remake that Elton himself came out with a few years later with George Michael).

My favorite track is "Cry Little Sister (Theme from The Lost Boys)" by Gerard McMann. I've always liked the sound of church organs and the organ in the middle of the song sends chills up and down my spine every time I hear it.

The soundtrack isn't loaded with songs you don't hear in the movie. If you're a fan of the movie and have watched it many times (to the point where you can say every line withOUT watching the movie), you'll enjoy being able to listen to this and thinking of the accompanying scenes.

One of the best movie soundtracks of all time.

While I'd like to give the soundtrack five stars based completely on the value of three songs, I feel I must admit that certain tracks are... almost embarrassing.
Of course, two mildly distasteful tracks on a ten track CD is not too bad a score.
I think I'll have to do this track by track, as each song (even those of less quality) is extremely divergent from the others, to my ear.
1.Good Times
In most senses, this is not a remarkable song in any way. However, I dare you to control that urge to dance a little.
2.Lost in the Shadows (The Lost Boys)
Musically, I enjoy this song to an extreme, and, outside of its chorus, the vocals, and the lyrics are not too bad(though more can be said for the lyrics than the vocals). Yet that trashy, piercing, repetitive chorus does grind at the nerves, making this song occasionally hard to listen to.
3. Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me
I cannot offer an appropriate evaluation of this song, for my thoughts of it are too much influenced by personal memories it evokes.
4. Laying Down the Law
The worst I can say about this song is that it is cliché, the best I can say is that I have a mild affection for the vocal track.
5.People Are Strange
I love covers, I don't know why. There is something about the interpretation of one artist's work by another, in their work and not silly analytical words is moving to me. What's more, Echo And The Bunnymen does very well for themselves here. Dare I even venture to suggest that their arrangement was more... (Hm, complex? Interesting?) musically than the (deeply cherished and oft danced to) original.
6.Cry Little Sister(Theme from The Lost Boys)
What does one say about a song that speaks for itself?
