Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

There was a time when Aerosmith was a great rock band. Then, just a few years before vocalist Steven Tyler's daughter, Liv Tyler, grew up and became a movie star, they transformed into one of the premier purveyors of power ballads--songs, in essence, that are as vapid as the big summer blow-'em-up movies, like, oh, say, Armageddon. In which Liv Tyler stars. Convenient, no? The soundtrack, which includes four and a half Aerosmith tracks ("Animal Crackers" features only Tyler), also has contributions from ZZ Top ("La Grange"), Bob Seger ("Roll Me Away"), and Our Lady Peace ("Starseed"), all of which fans of the respective bands will own on previously released albums. There is Shawn Colvin's fine--if ultimately unnecessary--cover of World Party's "When the Rainbow Comes," new tracks from Jon Bon Jovi and Patty Smyth, and even a dusting off of Aerosmith's take on "Come Together." Judge for yourself: is that really the song you want to hear just before an asteroid finishes off the Earth? --Randy Silver

In 1998, a film emerged about the prospect of a giant meteor crashing into the earth. It is only fitting, then that the soundtrack to this blasting movie is packed with full-force rock and roll.
"Armageddon: The Album" features the songs that rocked along with this high-impact film. Like any great soundtrack album, homage is paid to past masters such as Aerosmith ('Sweet Emotion'), Jon Bon Jovi ('Mister Big Time'), and Journey ('Remember Me'). Hard rock takes a brief break with Bob Seger's 'Roll Me Away' and Aerosmith hit 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' but this isn't a pop record - there's only rock and roll here.
Why only four stars? Some of the songs chosen could have been a bit better. Steven Tyler understandably lent his vocals for his daughter's film, but was it really necessary to include four Aerosmith tracks? While I love 'Come Together', the Beatles' original version could have been used. The last track, 'Animal Crackers', is a Ben Affleck-Liv Tyler dialogue set against the movie's theme song, and it seems entirely out of place, as does Shawn Colvin's 'When the Rainbow Comes', a disorganized attempt at indie-rock.
However, these few misses don't completely detract from a truly wonderful rock and roll album. As far as soundtracks go, this one is nearly (but not quite) as legendary as "Top Gun". And as a classic album, this one is full force rock.

Armageddon: The Album is a collection of music that is better than it should be. Clearly, the CD is meant to highlight Aerosmith, and the song "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing". Not only does the song lead everything off, but the song appears again at the end (mixed with film dialogue by Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler). While I like the song for what it is--the best parts of this hodge podge of a soundtrack occur somewhere in between its start and end
Having heard the likes of Journey, ZZ Top, Bob Seger, and Jon Bon Jovi, throughout my youth and beyond, it was nice to hear these groups get some play as well. The producers could have just as easily populated the album with an all "head banging mix", given the film's subject matter-but they didn't. There's even a few nice ballads fom Shawn Colvin, Patty Smyth, and Chantal Krewviazuk's great cover of the song "Leaving On A Jet Plane". Trevor Rabin, who composed the film's orchestral score is also given some space for his "Armageddon Theme".
This is a solid CD from start to finish. It has 14 tracks and a running time of 56:36

Soundtracks for their corresponding movies tend to have an interesting means of construction, for better or for worse. But the ARMAGEDDON soundtrack has to rank among one of the most interesting- and not because the soundtrack is good, but rather confusing.
Aerosmith was clearly intended to be the big attraction on this soundtrack, as they serve up two classics of their own- "Sweet Emotion" and their cover of "Come Together"- and deliver two new songs, the power ballad "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and the shrieking "What Kind of Love Are You On." Both of the new selections are relatively good, even though they do not rank among the band's best work. But Aerosmith's tunes here set the main problem with this soundtrack: who is the audience this album is aiming for? If it's one who loves to rock and roll all night and party every day, then what's with the easy-going songs from Chantal Kreviazuk, Patty Smyth, and Shawn Colvin? If it's one who loves ballads and heart-moving songs, then what's with the riotous rockers "Mister Big Time" and the aforementioned "What Kind of Love Are You On," neither of which are songs that would be played when an asteroid is coming to destroy the Earth? Or maybe it's one that's at or approaching middle-age, considering all of the veteran artists the album features- but that really can't be said when you have songs from fledgling folk artist Chantal Kreviazuk and post-grungsters Our Lady Peace. And with those classics from ZZ Top, Aerosmith and Bob Seger, there is no way the audience is actually a young audience raised on the current day's top 40 radio.

Review on the soundtrack "Armageddon"
Sent by a Texan from Houston in Germany I give this sound track 5 stars, it has such great songs on it! I am absolutely crazy about the songs " I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith, "La Grange" by ZZ Top, "Sweet Emotion" also by Aerosmith, " Leaving On A Jet Plane" by Chantal Kreviazuk, and " The Theme From Armageddon" by Trevor Rabin. I especially like "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" because it's like he is singing to his daughter, which is so sweet. The lyrics are absolutely great, the guitars and the all the violins used to make the song, was a really great idea. I like allot of Aerosmiths songs " Sweet Emotion" this song as many others do, adds allot to the movies , puts in the feeling the emotion. "Leaving On A Jet Plane" when Ben started singing and everyone else joined it was sweet, but so funny at the same time. The sweet part was that he was singing it to his future wife. And the funny part was how everyone joined in, like the base was Bear. And last " The theme From Armageddon" was just awesome it had such and impact on the feeling in the end. Sending Ben out to save the world it was overpowering and emotional at the same time. The thing that I thought was so cool about the whole movie not including the music was that it was filmed where at the space center in Houston, Texas.
