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.
