The most useless collection of noise I've ever heard
Alec Scudder | Barcelona, Spain | 12/27/2009

"Thanks for spare me the nuisance of having to watch this useless remake of a pop culture classic.

The ost speaks for itself. Noisy, pointless, repetitive and too Beyonce and Jay Dsoundy!!! I'm a huge fan of the original classic album, and the only worth pieces of this one are the (much worst versions) of the old "Fame" and "Out here on my own" themes.

Then, in the 80's, the best female voices cared to sing and modulate her voices in a proper way, nowadays they only want to scream and cry like if they were on a bad horror flick!!!

Mariah's, Beyonce's, Christina's, Whitney's lookalikes... LOUDING OUT LOUD all the time. Plzzzz, my head it's going to explode!!! On the other hand... where are the man...? Thank God for Sam Sparro's Black & Gold! Wait, that's not new...:)

O points for this absurd re-destruction of another modern classic!"

"I've seen the movie. Its about a high school for the performing arts set in the new millennium. NOT THE 1980s. Naturally, then, the music style is going to reflect the fact that the students are children of the hip-hop era. I say this because there are those who seemed surprised and disappointed that the film wasn't a carbon-copy of the Irene Cara movie from 25+ years ago. If you can get that prejudice out of your head then I believe there are some very pleasant surprises.

I think that Damon Elliott, son of Dionne Warwick and very good record producer in his own right, did a great job in giving the soundtrack a fresh sound. Love Anjulie's "Big Things" - makes my head bounce! The Fame title track sure reminds me of a song called "Personal Jesus" from a few years back. The eighties sound of the original would have failed in a movie such as this, sorry. Too Many Women is gentle, not a dance track, but nice. Naturi Naughton is definitely the star though, and her tracks rule! I'm afraid my least favorite songs are the ones Asher Book does. He's the "David Naughton" character in the new movie, and I can't stand his voice. He just flat can't sing. I wish they would have dubbed him with Jason Mraz, it would have come out better.

It's not the strongest recording, but the dance tracks work, not only within context of the movie but on their own. This isn't the soundtrack to 'Memoirs of a Geisha" that you can just put on and forget it because it's designed to be background music. This is a soundtrack that begs you to do something with it. Dance, sit and listen, something. I think keeping that in mind will help you decide if this is a recording you will enjoy."
