One of the most famous soundtrack songs of all time has to be Survivor's 'Eye of TheTiger' which debuted on the Rocky III soundtrack and makes a second appearance here. 'Burning Heart' from Survivor was in Rocky IV, a good rock track, and on this edition of Rocky 4 'Man Against The World' has also been included. 'No Easy Way Out' is a good, catchy 80's song, I loved it in the movie it fit the scene it was in so well. Got to hand it to Vince Dicola (more famous for his work on the Transformers series in the 80's) his compositions for the soundtrack are nothing short of epic: 'War' and 'Training Montage' were terrific songs and highlights of not only the soundtrack but the movie as well. Some songs here are great for a workout as well, for instance 'Hearts on Fire' and 'Training Montage' are sure to get you fired up and sweating. I love the inclusion of James Brown here, 'Living In America' is a great song and it had a nice part in the movie in which Brown himself appeared and sang the song.Read more ›
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.
The Rocky IV soundtrack is the most PUNGENTLY INFECTIVE MENTAL STIMULANT you can buy on the MUSIC MARKET.
Eye of the Tiger pales in comparison to the other great tracks - especially Training Montage (Instrumental), Hearts on Fire, and Sweetest Victory.
I have been listening to to this music since I found it on tapewhen I was 14 years old(now 25). Until last month I was really concerned, because after searching all of Sydney's music stores, I did not find it on CD. I finally found it on AMAZON, and my fears that my ragged little cassette tape will die on me have been put to rest.
This CD is the greatest little case of smelling-salts you will ever find.
I bought all the ROCKY CD's. However, I only Recommend ROCKY 4 and ROCKY 1(original CD).
ROCKY 4 and The Original Rocky CD's give you the greatest inspirational collection of pieces ever.
If you want to purge your mind of any form of fear , negativity or doubt, do yourself a favour and buy these 2 CDs.
I listen to them each morning and afternoon to and from work.
I never tire of them for they embody the eternal spirit of the WARRIOR CODE, that my Greekness has resolutely instilled me.
I am a harsh critic, but these CDs have emerged unscathed.
FABULOUS, Thanks Amazon, I searched for these on CD for YEARS.
I finally found them here.
Speaking of Heart's on Fire though, this is the only problem I see in it. In the movie, you have Rocky training to Heart's On Fire, but when he makes his mad dash for the mountain, an orchestra takes over with the same beat, to provide the best 2 minutes of music I've ever seen on film. You also hear it in the credits. For some reason though, they've decided to leave it off the soundtrack. If anyone can help me find that piece of music, I'd do anyhthing to repay you!
Other than that 2 minutes that aren't included. This CD is flawless. I still give it a 10/10 and highly recommend you buying it. Dont let those 2 mintues deter you from doing so

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 morePublished on Jan. 10 2003 by Andrew Levine
