"It is so inexpensive you cannot pass up this album.
The best of the nineties and one of the best movie soundtracks that I can think of."
Get it, If only for Mott and Mick

"I saw "Amongst Friends" around its release, thought it to be flawed yet poignant and rather good. The same can be said for the soundtrack, which is a highlight of the film and does an good job at capturing the spirit and times of the story. The bright spots for me were "All the Young Dudes" with its touching, anthemic nostalgia by the hugely underrated 70's band Mott the Hoople, The Clash's Mick Jones' exquisitely evocative, coolly elegant "Long Island", and the folksy, bittersweet charm of "Innocent Child" by Jones' group Big Audio Dynamite II. I didn't care too much for the rap songs, not my cup of tea, but it has it's place here since the film is set during the late 80's/early 90's when the genre was emerging in a big way. Anyone who was around during that era surely remembers Tone Loc's "Wild Thing". It's good to see the very good but unfortunately obscure 80's band Dramarama also included on this soundtrack."
