The video release of this is A Classic..this was also pretty cool.. it should of had Seduce' Crash Landing though...8/10

I must agree with the two commnets above.Solid metal album 4 all tastes(it contains thrash,glam,metal and so on).The movie is a piece of History about how it is to be metal and the opinion of some musicians of the genre.I do not remenber who was the producer of the movie(i think it's a woman named Penelope)but thanks to her we had a great movie that recognizes the fortune and misfortune of the metal bands.Excellent!!!!.10/10

This soundtrack is really worthwhile. There are a couple of fairly rare tracks on it, including The Brave by the underrated Metal Church and a track by a competent glam band called Seduce who I don't think actually released anything else. The movie/doco itself is a good watch despite the fact that much of it was staged or fabricated. Poor Ozzy was set up and you can clearly see that the shaking hand scene was not him but a staged actor. Also the WASP guitarist being drunk in the pool chatting to his mum was all staged. Paul Stanley surrounded by half naked girls on his bed, that was real though. That was a regular event in his room.

From what I've read, the staged-ness of the movie has been exaggerated over the years by people - musicians and fans alike - who realized that the whole scene came off looking pretty stupid. It's also interesting which parts fans have decided are real and which ones are not. Ozzy with shaking hands? No way, not possible! But Paul Stanley with half-naked women? Awesome - totally not posed! The Chris Holmes has always been a particular lightning rod, with Holmes himself distancing himself from it as soon as he realized how pathetic he looked. The vodka bottle was indeed filled with water - because he was already hammered, and had been up for three days partying, but he made it sound like the entire segment was completely fabricated. In later years, he told a more accurate version of events, such as was recounted in David Konow's book, "Bang You Head." It also includes a quote from Nadir D'Priest, asked if his remarks were taken out of context in the film: "I sure hope so."

You must not have seen the film Dog, if you think those are Ozzy's hands. Hahaha. It is about as obvious a fake as you can get. Oh, and you missed the pretty obvious tongue in cheek about my comments about Paul Stanley, lol.
