The only reason I bought this soundtrack (I'm one of these stupid people who buys CDs/DVDs for one daft reason) is because I'm a big fan of Keanu Reeves, and I thought I might like some of the tracks on the soundtrack. SOME being the operative word. I'm not the greatest fan of guitar music, and I haven't watched this film since I was last watching all my Keanu Reeves films - at least a few months ago - so I didn't recognise most of the tracks. The only track I was really looking forward to was the last track "Two Heads Are Better Than One" by Power Tool. And even then, I wasn't keen on it, as it's much better at the end of the film with the images etc. INSTEAD I did enjoy "I Can't Break Away" by Big Pig, and "In Time" by Robbie Robb. Big Pig's track was just great, and I instantly recognised "In Time" as the one with the funny "slow" air guitar moves - as I was would put it! Such an amazing track, and made me think of different things - one of those thought provoking things.
Anyway, buy this album if you like guitar music. And now Amazon, I would like to get Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey!!! Why is it out of stock? :P

I can't really add much to what has already been said about "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" soundtrack--it is a late 80's rock gem. Much of the music contained within the cd does sound a bit generic, but it is enjoyable nonetheless. Shark Island, while I am unsure if they were actually a REAL band, has two great tunes: the rather long "Father Time" and the rather short "Dangerous". I am not a huge fan of Extreme, but "Play With Me" is an okay track. Really the only song that I don't find to be that worthy of very much listening time is Big Pig's "I Can't Break Away" (I have no idea who the heck they are anyway).
So the whole soundtrack is pretty good, but what did it for me was Tora Tora's "Dancing With A Gypsy" song. What gets me is that, out of ten reviews, why no one made mention of this great tune. Why? Well, Tora Tora has always been overlooked as one of the best artists to have come out of the late 80's so I guess the fact that no one cared to say anything about them shouldn't come as a surprise. They were a very talented group (hard rock/blues) but, sadly, the band only made two albums: their wonderful debut "Surprise Attack" and their now out-of-print "Wild America".
This soundtrack is for: Anyone who is a fan of 80's rock/talented music who doesn't mind some keyboards in their rock music, will love this cd. If you liked the movie, the soundtrack is a wonderful companion even if it is only forty minutes long.

I first saw the movie in the theaters. then i got the album. The movie became a sleeper cult classic. The album got tossed aside, but is a sleeper too. It is filled with a mix of fun, and true to the movie. It has music that all people I have talked to enjoy, and wonder where to get. Those who know the movie, or have heard about it know the music, and know the artists htat perform on the soundtrack... It is a chance to hear them all in a different light, or in their true light. This album is worth every penny and more because of the mix of music, and the artists found on it. I have had the CD stolen from me three times, and I continue buying it because you will never find a rock soundtrack any better.

Like soft rock? You'll like this. There are some cool tunes in the 80s rock genre here - 'Play with Me' by Extreme and 'Two Heads...' by Power Tool (featuring Dweezil Zappa, incidentally). Amazing ballads - 'Walk Away' by Bricklin and 'In Time' by Robbie Robb. If you like stuff by Bon Jovi or 'Jump'-era Van Halen you should seriously consider this thang, man. In total a very good album for those who love the music of the time, or the film. Remember the scene with Beethoven rocking out on the keyboard at the mall? - on the album. Remember where Bill and Ted end up in the future and the futurians are standing around waving manically? - on the album. Get it. Soon.

What a soundtrack! Great film, even better tunes. Highlights of the album are "Play with Me" by Extreme, Glen Burtnick's "Not So Far Away", and the last three tracks. Some excellent ballads from the poodle-rock genre; no 80's rock fan's collection can be complete without this!
Contrary to what Jumpingjackflash said (the comment before mine), the song about "dancing in the streets" IS on the album. It is track eight : "In Time" by Robby Robb. And what a beautiful melody it is too! I have really enjoyed this, and if the 1980's is your favourite decade, then so will you!

Plain and simple...this album is excellent! The most mentionable songs on this album (in my opinion) are 1. In Time"- Robbie Robb (played as they visited the three excellent dudes in the future) 2. "Walk Away"- Bricklin (played as they introduced their legendary "guests" for their history project) 3. "Play With Me"- Extreme (played during their attack on the mall) 4. "Two Heads Are Better Than One"- PowerTool (later known as the duo NELSON) (played over the end credits. Even thought the soundtrack to the sequel did better commercially, THIS is the better soundtrack.
