Days of Thunder

Genre: Soundtracks; Lead Performer: Various Artists; Producer (group): DGC

It’s the soundtrack album from Tom Cruise’s new movie, and on it is big musical news – the first song Guns N’ Roses has released in two years, a sharp, dark reading of Bob Dylan’s ”Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” which the band has long been singing live. There’s also an affecting new cut by Maria McKee, but nearly everything else is overblown dumb pop, especially the mush from Tina Turner and Cher.
