5.0 out of 5 stars Rocky IV hits the hardest July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Out of all the Rocky movies, the third sequel to the Oscar winning original movie Rocky (1976) has the best soundtrack. Rocky IV came out in 1985 in the midst of the 80's synch pop and hair bands. But there is little or no indication that Stallone or whoever put these songs together was highly appreciative of that dreadful music scene.
Survivor returns to the soundtrack of yet another Rocky sequel after their successful 1982 Rocky III theme song Eye Of The Tiger. This time they contribute Burning Heart, an even more ambitious and powerful song about the east and west clash (america and the soviet union). James Brown offers Living In America. John Cafferty's adrenaline fueled Hearts On Fire shows up twice in the movie and that only indicates that it's the highlight on the soundtrack. Kenny Loggins, the king of 80's soundtrack hits such as Footloose and Danger Zone, makes a modest appearance on Rocky IV with Gladys Knight on the bluesy Double Or Nothing. Go West's One Way Street is another bluesy pop song that fits the soundtrack quite well. Finally, there's the instrumental tracks: War and Training Montage that are memorable as the movie itself. Of course, I'm not forgetting Robert Tepper's No Easy Way Out which comes on in the most engaging scene in the movie, when Rocky is remembering his past, Apollo Creed, and the frightful face of Drago coming to end his life.
Rocky IV is one of the most bankable movies of the 80's. It also is one of the best soundtrack albums of that decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 80's movie soundtrack. July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I was a little kid in like second grade around 86-87, I heard this album (on cassette, of course) via my older cousin. I was addicted to it immediately, borrowed it and crudely made a copy of it (putting two tape-recorders next to each other and using the built in mic to pick up the sound). I later got a real copy of the cassette as a Christmas present. I've often forgot about it since then, but I've never been sick of it. I finally bought the CD version 2 years ago.
This soundtrack is the one I remember most from any movie from the 80's. The only let-downs are the out of place laid-back adult contemporary track (the robot plays it while bringing Paulie his ice cream and beer) and the crappy 80's pop song (the robot is also guilty of this one, plays it while Rocky is washing his car...someone needs to shoot that f'ing robot). By all means stay away from tracks 3 and 8, they'll make you feel embarassed to be listening, even if you're alone. Everything else here is memorable. The James Brown track is also a little out of place, but it's acceptable since it was so heavily featured in the movie. Plus while listening to it I live out my fantasies of Drago punching James Brown. Hard.
Vince DiCola replacing what was mostly a Bill Conti score for the previous movies (and making a big transition from mostly orchestra to mostly synth) sounds very "80's" during the two instrumentals, but it doesn't matter since they are so outstanding.
Two Survivor songs and a few other great tracks from groups/artists we'd never heard of then and haven't heard from since top off an outstanding movie soundtrack.
So jump into your Lamborghini after dark, throw this sucker in your CD player, and drive really fast around town while reliving moments from your past films. Then go beat the crap out of some commies! And impatiently wait for Rocky VI.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense rockers, instrumentals, a varied mix. July 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Burning Heart" is a mighty martial anthem--"in the warrior's code there's no surrender/though his body says stop, his spirit cries never"-- pounding with power chords but also a Cold War anthem--"two world collide, rival nations" "is it east vs west, or man against man." Only Survivor could do something like this. Their theme song from Rocky III, "Eye Of The Tiger" reprised here, and it's a welcome addition, with those snarling guitars and familiar rhythm guitar. It's also a good opportunity to compare Dave Bickler with Jimi Jameson.
John Cafferty seems synonymous with Eddie And The Cruisers or being a Springsteen clone, but he manages to bring the energetic but heavily produced keyboards/guitar number "Heart's On Fire" some credibility. I will say that this is very 80's, which is good.
Untrained ears will find it hard to tell Kenny Loggins and Gladys Knight apart on the middling rocker-R&B hybrid "Double Or Nothing" a song with pronounced drums.
Two of Vince DiCola's music scores are included, one being the majestic "War" heavy on dramatic keyboards. There is definitely an air of apprehension. I don't recall what part of the movie this was used--the prelude to or during one of the bouts?
The funky and horn-heavy "Living In America" a kind of commentary on the American life, is the first time I heard the Godfather of Soul, and he lets loose with his trademark "OWWW" This song later ended up on Brown's Gravity album and was parodied by Weird Al as "Living With A Hernia." He reprises a part of one of his songs at the end: "I feel good!" While I love this song, I hate the way it was used in the movie as prancing and jeering propaganda against the Soviet boxer Drago.
The sobering rocker "No Easy Way Out" by Robert Tepper rivals the Survivor songs as my favorite here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Soundtrack of 80's Memories Jan. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
Rocky IV is one of the finest soundtrack albums of the 80's though it sold barely above one million copies. It refeatures "Eye Of The Tiger", the Rocky III theme and Survivior's biggest hit in summer of 1982. And the dead of winter '86 hit "Burning Heart" also by Survivor. Furthermore it has full of surprises such as the return of rock'n soul legend James Brown with "Living In America" written by Dan Hartman known by the Streets Of Fire theme "I Can Dream About You". King of soundtrack Kenny Loggins of Footloose and Top Gun fame offers great ballad "Double or Nothing" dueted with soul legend Gladys Night(one of the superstars who sing with Dionne Warwick's "That's What Friends Are For". It highlights newer stars such as John Caffety known by "Eddie and the Cruisers" soundtrack, Robert Tepper with "No Easy Way Out" and UK pop star Go West with "One Way Street". For melodic rock fans, Touch's "Sweetest Victory" is just unbelievable! Essential for 80's music fans and soundtrack collectors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack, but....
The only problem I have with the CD is that they tampered with 3 of the main songs, the Training Montage, if you know from the movie, it changes in the begginning. Read more
