Journey into an explosion of sight, sound, song and superb storytelling as brilliantly conceived by animation innovator Ralph Bakshi (Fritz the Cat, The Lord of the Rings, Wizards). From a turn-of-the-century immigrant vaudevillian to a rock superstar, AMERICAN POP is the story of four generations whose lives revolve around the beat of American popular music. Featuring a mind-blowing soundtrack bursting with the hit music of The Doors, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Mamas and The Papas, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pat Benatar, Lou Reed, Bob Seger and more. Packed with energy, excitement, electricity and enthusiasm, Bashki's work is a ground-breaking, kaleidoscopic animated trip.

Maybe because some people assume animated works can't be as serious as live action? It's hard to say why, but I'll never forget the feelings that charged through me when I finished AMERICAN POP for the first time. Oddly enough, those same bursts of energy and excitement arrive with each viewing I have of this masterpiece.
I will say though, this DVD cover is a major injustice, to such an artistic piece of work. Looks as if some cheap Microsoft word document printed it out at the last minute. The movie deserves a special edition, or at the very least, a cover with all the flare the film has itself !
At times the animation was a little scary (jarring, incongruous expressions on people's faces when you don't expect it), but I thought it was a great soundtrack and an interesting series of stories.
