I didn't really like the movie, Vision Quest, but the soundtrack is really good. It's likely to appeal to two audiences: 1) Madonna fans, and 2) 80s rock fans. There's a nice balance between pop (Madonna, Style Council), pop-rock (Journey, John Waite, Foreigner), and hard-rock (Dio, Red Rider). Of course, everyone's probably heard Madonna's "Crazy for You," which was her first hit ballad (unless you include "Borderline"). It still sounds great, and is really quite beautiful and sweet. You may not, however, have heard her second song on the soundtrack - "Gambler." It's more of an up-beat pop song. Although it's clearly not one of her best efforts, I think that this soundtrack is the only place to get it. My other favorite song on the CD is Dio's "Hungry for Heaven." I'm not a Dio fan, but this song is more melodic and poppy than most of their stuff - it's really great. If you like other 80s soundtracks (e.g., Flashdance, Footloose), you'll probably really enjoy "Vision Quest."

Well, back in high school I had the tape. I used to listen to it on the way to cross-country meets to get psyched up. There's just not a bad tune on this album. "Only The Young" is the greatest song Journey ever recorded. It was also the last one they recorded with the line-up from the Frontiers album. I also consider it the best song on this album. But all of them are worth a listen.

While the movie VISION QUEST (with Matthew Modine as the lead actor) is somewhat dated (it was released in 1985), this song from the soundtrack of that movie is still used today, as it has been since the soundtrack was released, as a song that high school & college wrestlers listen to during practice & before matches.

As other reviewers have mentioned, it's a great soundtrack for listening to while running, biking, prepping for a swim meet, driving in the car, or just sitting around at home. It will get your blood pumping, so it might be perfect for getting rid of a bad headache after a late night out or some other big bash -- just play it on low volume when you first wake up! :-)

VISION QUEST still stands as one of the best Hollywood films that young wrestlers will enjoy, and the soundtrack has some other outstanding selections that can be used to put an aspiring wrestler into a winning frame of mind. If you haven't seen the movie, get it on DVD. If you've never heard the song LUNATIC FRINGE by Red Rider, download it onto your MP3 player or computer or just buy the entire soundtrack, but do it TODAY!

If you haven't seen the movie, this soundtrack won't sound too great to you. It will be just another CD from the 80s that we can store in the closer or attic. But for those that have seen the movie (especially wrestlers) this soundtrack is an excellent motivator. Great for running hills to cut that last few pounds before a match/tournament or to pump you up before a dual. This CD also has songs which are just plain good to listen to. It has everything a CD should have. Highly recommended.

I'm not much of a soundtrack fan but this is a must have for any wrestler. As a Jr. High Wrestling coach and professional mobile DJ I understand that todays youth have their own music but Lunatic fringe is still among the best songs to play while working out.

Vision Quest is a cult classic from 1985 that may well be best known for the number one song "Crazy For You" by Madonna that she also performed in the film. Madonna was a rising star when the film was released and the film garnered attention as it was her first appearance in a film. She sings the aforementioned "Crazy For You" and "Gambler" in a bar scene. Journey also scored a top ten hit with "Only The Young" which was originally recorded for their Frontiers album, but not released until the soundtrack. It has become one of their most enduring classics. Don Henley contributes one of the rarest songs in his catalog. It's a punchy track with backing vocals by Belinda Carlisle & Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go's. The rest of the album is made of previously released tracks like "Hot Blooded" by Foreigner, "Change" by John Waite and "Lunatic Fringe" by Red Rider.

I like it because it always pumped me up when I was young. Lunatic Fringe was a great song to ride and run to.

Okay, the movie was a bit over the top. It was about wrestling. I love this compact disc and I even had the audio cassette prior. I love the cover with Linda Fiorentino and Matthew Modine. The music like "Only the Young" Journey is truly classic with Steve Perry's great voice. There are other songs on this disc like Madonna's "The Gambler" and "Crazy for You" which was the alternate title for the movie. I play this disc in the car and it brings back so many great memories of that decade. I wished Linda Fiorentino would act again and do more now. It's hard to believe that the two stars are now 50 years old but great music is timeless!
