5.0 out of 5 stars Compilation and Soundtrack Heaven!!, June 8, 2001
This review is from: Almost Famous (Audio CD)
Almost Famous is a state of mind, as is the art of Cameron Crowe. His films are like Hitchcock's -- a genre all of their own. Almost Famous, as he has said, is a kiss blown to his past, and we are all very lucky to get a bit of that kiss. This soundtrack was produced by Cameron, and plays like an album, not like a random compilation. As with all of his other soundtracks (which I have), Almost Famous is like a Cliff's Notes for the film, just enough to remind you of the joy felt while watching the movie, but not so much that you never want to see the film again.
Because of Cameron and this album, "Tiny Dancer" will forever be connected to road trips, and will always belong to Cameron and Almost Famous, as "Miserlou" will always be connected to the beginning of Pulp Fiction and belong to Tarantino, as "In Your Eyes" will always conjure images of John Cusack holding that boom box above his head, owned by "Say Anything...", Cameron's sweet 1989 work.
This album makes you wish it would never end. It makes you want Stillwater to exist. It makes you want to be a Band Aid. It makes you want to be a brilliant wunderkind rock journalist. It makes you want to envelop yourself in the blanket of joy that is Almost Famous.
In short, a fine selection, especially for those that are just dipping their toe in the golden waters of classic rock.
